SpoFi's 2014 Fantasy Baseball League is Active!: So begins my fourth year of running SpoFi's fantasy baseball league. Invites to previous players have been sent out. If you're interested in joining, you'll need to email me so I can send you a direct invite as Yahoo! fantasy no longer provides a way to post a URL and password to let new players join a league. Same thing if you've been playing and you haven't seen the invite in your inbox. We've got keepers this year, as was discussed in the league last season. Existing teams can pick up to three. They'll take the place of your first three draft positions, so new teams will have first pick at the free agents.

SpoFi Puckathon 6.5 - Half a League is Better Than None: Well, I'm not sure how many of y'all are willing to follow the NHL after the lockout, but if you're up for it, I've set up a rotisserie league following the setup that SkyDive Dad used in days of yore. I've set the draft to go off the day before the puck hits the ice. The League ID if you need it is: 39210 And the password for joining is: lockoutschmockout

I'm always impressed that any article even tangentially critical of Russia gets its fair share of Kremlin paid astroturf commenters going off on it hyperbolically.

The Espys? Really just a front. Their real job is to contain the spread of information about events relating to the operative "Mad Dog", who tends to wreak considerable collateral damage upon the local population when executing an operation.
