Olympic Pep Talk Of The Week
You have to love Coach’s pep talk to the lacrosse team in Teen Wolf this week. We honestly wouldn’t be surprised if some US coaches at the Olympics have been reciting the president’s speech from Independence Day.

Hmm, we’re sure dope testing must have something to say about gamma radiation. And being a god. By Deviant Artist scargeear.
Unexpected Fan Of The Week
Turns out that Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes is a fan of a certain other TV Doctor. “I’m a psychotic Doctor Who fan,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “If you are at all interested in television that’s taking chances then, yeah, I think you like Doctor Who. It’s completely different from anything that’s on network television here, or even on cable.” She also tried to hire Karen Gillan for one of her new projects: “I think she’s really, really talented. But apparently she’s doing a movie next, so we couldn’t get her.”
Wedding Cake Of The Week
After an absence of, oooh, probably all of about one week, the Wedding Cake Of The Week Award is back. But resistance to awarding this one was futile. Good grief, it even has internal light. Assimilate that? Yes please. It was the creation of Redditor pat_inthehat who rather understatedly posted, “My Aunt makes wedding cakes. Today she made a Borg Cube.” [via IO9]
