Happy October 19th! Season 4 of NBC’s woefully-undersupported-by-anyone-without-a-Tumblr ‘Community’ begins tonight!
To celebrate, this week’s Sports On TV column looks back at the 20 greatest sports moments from the show’s first three seasons. It’s a confusing mass of spaceships and ‘Glee’ slams and paintball epics, and it’s absolutely worth revisiting and celebrating.
Here’s the best way to enjoy tonight’s premiere: read this column. Click the like button. Share it on Reddit or Facebook or Tumblr (especially Tumblr). Drop a comment in the comments section about your favorite episodes, moments, quotes and character pairings. Come up with a fun name for them (suggestion: StarPelt). Flip through the 20 greatest sports moments dozens of times over the next few hours. Then, totally forget that ‘Community’ actually comes on television and decide to watch it on Hulu tomorrow morning. Because guess what? That’s the only way ‘Community’ has ever worked.
This photo of Shaq throwing a girl into a fiery pit or lifting up a Best Buy employee was taken on a Mac, according to my favorite photo sharing website, Imgur. Yeah? Well it’s still not as cool as Shaq and Hulk Hogan.
Oh, here are some links! And some are about Community, so I’ve included an Alison Brie GIF.

British police have been intensely training this week for scenarios in which people might try to steal the Olympic torch during its famous relay leading up to the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. I like to think that they just paid random bums and junkies to go after it without telling them that it’s a training exercise. Maybe later they’ll add zombies into the mix. Anything to make the Olympics fun again. (Image via Reuters)

This Week in Posters: Battleships, Ghost Riders, & Spider-Men - The funniest thing I’m going to see all week is another goddamn Spider-Man origin story advertised as “untold”. Starving kids in Africa know Spider-Man’s origin, just shut up and make him fight Electro. [Film Drunk]

Why We Must Save ‘Community’: The Venn Diagram - Unfortunately “an increased role on ‘Mad Men’ for Trudy” is a good reason to NOT save Community. Pete and Trudy should be the main characters, and we should check in on Don pridefully weeping in California every third or fourth episode. [UPROXX]
