What the heck is the site I am thinking of?: I noticed a few extra columns in the ESPN MLB standings (DIV? WC? POFF?) and surmised, correctly, that they were showing the probability of a team winning the division, wildcard or making the playoffs in any manner. It is prompting me to ask the SpoFi collective about a site that presented such probabilities graphically.
Action dump ver 1: Sports photography is a little underappreciated. Have you seen a good shot (or vid) lately that has really captured the moment? Share it. Link it. Let's get our appreciative jones on. I got one...
Jock Rock.: The gazingest of the navels*. Ahead of the Super Bowl, a quiz on the intersection of sports and music.
Although two different links should go to the same lockerroom archive listing it seems that they don't.: ie Fantasy Sports.html = good. But within the thread the category archive link is given as categories.cfm?id=8 and it is even less effective than the Pittsburgh Penguins goaltending this year.
Ask Spofi: Do they do the "three stars" at hockey games in the States?: Just wondering, maybe a dumb question that I could figure out myself with a bit of poking around.
Meme: Ten Unforgetable Sports Moments that You Actually Saw (not ones you saw later on tape): I've traced this back to a post on PoliBlog and the title pretty much says it all. What 10 sporting this do you recall witnessing that are simply unforgettable?
The membership jump!: FWIW, the membership has not increased as rapidly as it has lately since March of 2002. Welcome, rookies. (crap ass table inside)...
Ask SpoFi: What are the must-attend sporting events or matchups in terms of pure atmosphere?
Ask Spofi: can somebody tell me what I need to know about testimonial games so that I can sound smart? Does the home team ever lose or is it proper etiquette for the visiting team to put on a good show without winning?
Ask SpoFi: With the Nationwide football playoffs coming up soon - how does one get tickets? It took incredible google-fu just to find out the fricken dates of these playoffs and I have not found a single shred of info that suggests tickets are on sale for any of the matches.
Ask Spofi: Football loans - when a player is loaned to another team (a concept that escapes me with my North American sporting familiarity) who is paying his wages - the team he is under contract for or the team he is loaned to?
Just asking my favourite sports community (since this ain't front page type stuff and doesn't really fit into the whole raison d'etre for the locker room)....
I recently read an article about the legacy of Muhammad Ali and I have a bit of a question for any boxing fans... (inside)
