Just dropping in to say hi

North Carolina is going to hell. That's how it's going here. Any jobs up there in Massachusetts, NH or VT?

Olympic protocol

People can spoil away as far I am concerned. In fact, it just might help to motivate me to tune in specifically to watch that event that night.

Problem posting with Google Chrome

Windows 7, same version of the Chrome browser. No problems here, Meaty.
(Though, I'm sure everybody wishes I would have posting problems.)

Did Troy Play Dirty?

Dan Patrick had Troy on his radio show a few weeks back and it's striking how gentle his voice is. I also get the sense that he isn't a fan of football. He let it drop that he never watches football on the TV.

Did Troy Play Dirty?

A quick glance of newspapers articles and blog posts from the Boston area only talks about him slapping the ball into NE's end zone, nothing about him kicking anybody. I saw the game as well and I don't recall anything like that happening.

SportsFilter and Me

I've always thought of you as middle-lower-brow.

And this is a conversation we've had in the long ago past: if you want better front page posts, make 'em. (Why don't I do it myself? I'm lazy.) As for your hot-button issue FPPs, I always assumed that you did them just to have *something* on the front page. Do you think the daily huddle threads are taking away from any possible FPPs? Maybe people are like me (lazy) and would rather throw a context-free, single-link post into the huddle rather than flesh out a larger topic and make it an FPP.

Do you do that Google+ thing?

I think I sent something to you as well, Ufez. Check all of your email accounts.

They keep opening the spigot and turning it back off quickly because apparently they keep hitting the max number of persons.

See Google, what happens when you don't automatically opt people into your latest social scheme? They don't get pissed, they clamor to get in.

I think I sent you something Gary. Maybe check one of your now less-used email account.

I think it involves mere putting an "m" in your URL. http://m.sportsilter.com. That's it.

tommy: I think weedy was just making light of the fact that someone was perceived as thinking your FPP about the CHL's playoff system was not worthy of the front page.

I, too, say that we should keep MrFrisby. Sure, he's rabid as hell, but he's mostly a lovable scamp. It would be a shame to put him down.

Matt Haughey's Excellent Hospital Adventure

Matt Haughey's Excellent Hospital Adventure

Thank goodness it's treatable. I hope they got to it early enough to wipe it out. Go Matt Go! It's crazy how this type of thing can come on. I remember last year seeing a good friend of mine at a Boris show at the Cat's Cradle in Chapel Hill and he was complaining of a nasty headache that just wouldn't go away. What seemed like a blink of any eye later, I was wheeling him to a radiation treatment.

And I know what Matt speaks of about the MRI. I had to go through one earlier this year in hope of finding the source of my sudden onset of a seemingly endless series of migraines. In hindsight, it was pretty funny when they asked me what kind of music I liked best. They had a XM radio on board and they switched it to my type of music. I think I got to hear 45 seconds of a song before the industrial jams of the MRI machine drowned everything else out.

I do not oppose this idea. After all, it's just the daily Huddle*.

Just out of curiosity, will you have the text from those sources be a different color just to delineate it from a regular comment in the huddle?

Early Predictions for the Upcoming 2009-2010 NHL Season!

I'm reading the thread. I'm just not really big on making predictions. OK, I'll do one: I predict that the Hurricanes sneak into the top eight at the end of the season.

That's all I can do. Sorry.

One thing that I've learned about this place: though not many post, many do lurk and they love fantasy sports. Bring on the puckathon 'cause they'll show up for that.
