YouTube has failed me. I desperately wanted to link to the clip of Liza singing "God Bless America" before the men's final of the U.S. Open, but sadly there is none to be found. You'll just have to trust me, it's hilarious. Not only did her extreme theatrics turn the patriotic anthem into musical comedy, it also left me wondering why anyone is singing "God Bless America" before a championship match between the three-time defending champion from Switzerland and an upstart Serb challenger.


Curses, YouTube! Foiled again! Just in case any of you hadn't seen the clip of Britney opening the MTV Video Music Awards, my desire was to link to it here. But alas, Viacom filed a copyright claim and had the instantly infamous footage removed from the web that is world wide. There's a rehearsal video floating around, but it's just not the same. During the show, I used the TiVo to rewind and run it in slow motion, pausing on one particular shot where Britney appears to have six chins.

Between Liza and Britney, I can't call it. Let's just say those damaged divas finished in a dead heat for best belly laugh of the weekend.
