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.

Well, it's not just the Yankees. I went looking for what lively awfulness is on offer for my Cubbies and found plenty.

Federal Judge Orders Cancellation of Redskins Trademarks

NoMich, I believe this is a continuation of that ruling. And this isn't the final appeal for the Washington sports team, either.

The Gaming Obsession of the Green Bay Packers

It's certainly a better game than Monopoly, but they might want to consider branching out a bit. The whole 'nerds' thing doesn't really apply to Settlers any more, as it has pretty much become a mainstream board game at this point. Now, if they start breaking out the old Avalon Hill version of Dune, then you can start talking about how nerdy they are.

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.
