SportsFilter: The Wednesday Huddle

If the problem is only in NE a simple solution would be to run fiber to the field near each bench and blast from an ap there.

Dedicated frequencies are also relatively easy to implement in today's world if required for stability. Think of the last concert you attended ... 7 or 8 different instruments and a bunch of mics all wireless to to amp/mix/pa/etc without issue and cost effectively.

You'd think for $80 million it should work flawlessly, but ..

Comes down to the Patriots needing to hire a good engineer to resolve the issue. Reliance on Microsoft support is usually not the best solution in most scenarios isolated to only Microsoft products, never mind a solution where Microsoft products are a small portion of the end system {personal opinion, as is everything I post here}.

Leafs are finally doing it right. Shed a bunch of overpaid floaters last year and opened the door for developing young talent. They will have some growing pains but at least it will be young players making mistakes they will learn from rather than guys making 5 million a year plus showing up only on paydays. Only bad move was losing James Reimer as he's an ideal guy to have around to bail out a team on nights (seasons) when the defense has trouble.

Ticket package brings back memories ... watched a lot of Leafs way back when on the old 20" black and white TV. Remember a lot of the roster from back then including Keon, Ellis, and Henderson.

Check out the Keon photo - was one of the few players who stuck with a straight stick after curves came out.

Blue Jays Beat Orioles, Advance to Face Rangers

As a Canadian sports fan I am again embarrassed by any potential association of Canada with the Blue Jays organization or their fans.

Please direct your anger at the Blue Jays organization and the Toronto fans just as the rest of true Canadian sports fans do.

The Jays organization better get it's head out of it's ass real quick and take steps to prevent another similar incident or MLB will need to start moving home games to a neutral site.

Yeah, Montana's coach wasn't too shabby either.

Still I do think both coaches played a major role in their success, and I do think the Patriots would be just fine without Brady.

Lady Gaga Will Perform Super Bowl Halftime Show

Superbowl halftime shows haven't ever been about music. They are about flash and glitz and using a popular artist to maximize viewer share. Lady Gaga fits in well and I doubt any of her hard core fans will notice that the venue or acoustics impact her lip-synched autotune karaoke in any major way.
