I'm in (well, soon anyway). Why wait two months? Pre-pre-pre-season!

Came for the sports, slogged through the WC -- I tried, I really tried to get into soccer, and failed. Now, it's time for Le Tour. And then a crazed mix of NFL, college football, and La Vuelta, which is already mixing things up with some interesting new ideas (scroll to the fourth headline on that page).

Usenet convention in the bicycle racing group I'ver read for years dictated "no results in the subject lines." However, that's been pretty well done away with over the past year or so. The big difference is that on rec.bicycles.racing, race progress reports were often posted, so that those without the appropriate cable channels could follow the races almost live. At this point, with so many web outlets for live event coverage, as well as increased television coverage, those arguments hold far less water. Here, where it's more about discussion than event coverage, I'd say that the spoiler issue could be handled pretty easily -- toss the word "SPOILER" or "RESULT" in the beginning of the post. Wanna know? click the link. Don't? Move along, kiddo. But I like the meta refresh trick.
