I Won't Stand for That

Speaking as someone who is in a wheelchair, I say: SIT THE HELL DOWN! Actually, I think you should just use your common sense and look around to see what everyone else is doing. Don't stand up if the people behind you are sitting down. And stadium designers should pay more attention to wheelchair sections. Some stadiums have them at the front, with no seats ahead of them, but some have them higher up in the middle of the stand. Invariably, that means the person in front jumps up whenever something exciting happens, and I can't see the damn thing I just paid 40 to see. It's fairly annoying.

Has anyone figured out why Terry got that second yellow yet?

I find it quite amusing that this is posted in "Navel Gazing".

Summer Reading List

Last summer I thoroughly enjoyed "French Revolutions: Cycling the Tour de France" by Tim Moore. It's about a regular joe who decides to ride the entire route of the Tour, and is extremely funny in some places, as well as providing some good historical background on the race and all the legends that surround it.

Ask SpoFi

In soccer, I'd say most outfield players peak around the ages of 27 - 29. Goalkeepers, however, tend to get better as they get older, and it's not uncommon to see goalies hit their best in their early to mid-thirties.

As long as this place doesn't turn into Fark, then I'm not bothered about the odd image here and there.

You should definitely hold on to all the other pope.com's you registered too... that guy looks half-dead already.

Hollywood Summer 2005 sports-related movies

I hated the original Fever Pitch (about an Arsenal fan), so I don't think I'll be first in the queue to see a remake. And Nick Hornby is not unknown for switching locations for his movie adaptations. High Fidelity was moved from the UK to the US too.

A Blizzard of Columns!

May I suggest the user profile pages too? They could do with a little bit of left and right padding.

SpoFi Wiki...keep it up?

Why did you get kicked from Wikipedia, squealy? I find them useful, but I've never really given any thought to contributing to one. I didn't even know a spofi one existed. Wouldn't it make more sense for it to be at sportsfilter.com/wiki as smithers suggests? Or even wiki.sportsfilter.com, whatever...

Ask SpoFi

Second vote for the Tour de France. On one of the Pyranean mountain stages, at the top of a climb, with thousands of fans, and the riders going over the top one by one because they're all knackered and the peloton has exploded. Never done it myself, but it looks awesome.
