I also run short road races slowly.

The Agony of Defeat.: Lots of crashes on the luge track for the women. Also mentioned in the men's coverage was a training run crash by Gold Medalist Zoeggler, and the 52 year old Venezuelan competitor. I understand not showing horrific NFL hits so that players aren't tempted to engange in undue violence to get camera coverage, but it seems something happened to the old Wide World Of Sports style Agony of Defeat moments. I understand the respect for privacy in an especially bad accident, perhaps like the one described in the link. But it seems to me that once upon a time, footage of Zoeggler's crash in training would have been shown before each of his runs. Is NBC hurting their ratings by not indulging the morbid curiosity factor?

In other NFL news: NFL Fantasy Football Final Results I won. Managers of 2nd and 3rd place teams were danostuporstar and thatweirdguy2. Just saying. Before a playoff game gets started.

Holy frijoles! There's a fantasy football draft tomorrow morning?

I'll be drafting from work. Might as well leave it because of the huge # of teams and late notice to change. It'll all be about managing what you end up with.

Great game. (Rivers'll be fine, Grossman, not so much).

Congrats to the winners. I was hoping to go out on top again and retire gracefully. Now I'm Favre-ing!

Yukon is on a roll, and good job by Flivvers with the 49 moves out of a junky draft to get back in contention.

Yahoo is for You-Hoos

Who is jerseygirl? I don't care, yahoo is easy for me, I'll probably have another league or two there. If someone wants to try another system, I'll follow like a sheep, but I have no strong feelings either way.

Steelers: Big Ben Injured In Motorcycle Accident

I can't find any back up, but I think I remember seeing on TV last year that he was prohibited by contract clause from riding during the season, but not the offseason. (I don't know where pre-season fits in, if that is in fact true).

I'm lame. I show up on the sidebar as in, but I don't think I put an email in, I got an error message. So now I can't see if I have everything filled out or not. Well, it's probably fate.

Auntie Climax

Why yes, thank you dano, she did. The lady covets a banner or two or three! You guys are fun. Strangely, this is the only place I've ever had any luck with the NCAA hoops. I'll tell you my secret methodology when it's all over.
