Lego Gundam (link roundup)

Lego Gundam by Marco-Pochi. Via.

And a few more links:

1. Just about completely taking the "school" out of high school basketball:

One of the requirements of playing for Findlay College Prep is a willingness to repeatedly explain an apparent conundrum: How can the Pilots be one of the best high school teams in the nation when Findlay Prep isn't a high school? In the Pilots' unconventional program, the players live together in a suburban Las Vegas house, travel as much as some college teams, dine occasionally on the Vegas strip and... oh, yes, take classes at a nearby private school, Henderson (Nev.) International School. ¶ "It can get confusing for people," says senior Carlos Lopez, the Pilots' 6'11" center from Lajas, Puerto Rico, and a UNLV recruit. "I tell them Findlay Prep is a team, not a school. Then it's like, 'You don't go to school?' Yes, we go to school just like anybody else, but our team is not the same as our school. Like I said, confusing."
Sports Illustrated investigates.

2. The threat against the White House you may have missed last week - - bees.

3. There's a band called "Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin" and here's a concert poster for it.

4. Watch the sequel to Mike Tyson's Punch-Out you never knew about - - "Mike Tyson's Intergalactic Power Punch."
