Dent In Your Car? Be Sure To Check For Nearby Parachutes

The web roundup for Monday, November 5. Be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. See anything that should be on SportsGrid? Send it to Now, our starting five.

1. Skydiver hits, damages NASCAR driver’s car before race.

If this was an attempt to become the weirdest sports-interrupting skydiver in history, sadly the attempt failed. [Deadspin]

2. Ben Folds Five wants to be the Bobcats’ band.

Promotion we’d rather see: the Ben Folds [starting] Five actually on the floor for the Bobcats. [Larry Brown Sports]

3. Samantha Steele became an ESPN Zone hostess to try to get an ESPN job.

Now works for ESPN. Ergo: if you get a job at ESPN Zone, you are guaranteed to work for ESPN in the future! (Note: this is not how things work.) [The Big Lead]

4. Hate mail meant for Florida State coach goes to PoliSci department staffer instead.

Wait a second. “Jerry Fisher told the AP that he usually answers all of the emails, tells the sender they have the wrong address and gives them Jimbo Fisher’s correct address.” You’re telling me this guy has a troll’s dream on his hands – a chance to mess with unsuspecting people, many of whom are probably dicks considering theyre sending hate emails to a guy – and he just offers mild-mannered corrections?! He’s blowing the chance of a lifetime! [Dr. Saturday]

5. Not sports related, still important.

Will the economy rebound no matter who wins the presidency?; John Cusack somehow playing Rush Limbaugh in biopic; election drinking game; PSA for Jersey folk: voting instructions for displaced voters.

What’s on TV.

Eagles at Saints (ESPN, 8:30 p.m.); WWE Monday Night Raw (USA, 8 p.m.); Bridesmaids (Cinemax, 7:45 p.m.); How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8 p.m.); Bones (Fox, 8 p.m.); Revolution (NBC, 10 p.m.)

Food porn of the day.

And finally, tonight…

So if we transitioned from the voting/electoral college system to determine the president to this method, how many people would complain, really?
