New York Times to begin charging for online access: On March 28th, the NY Times will institute a pay wall and begin charging frequent readers of its content for online access via digital subscriptions. If they are successful and other content providers follow suit, the economic landscape of online content will change. How will this affect SpoFi and the linking to online content? When more online content sources have pay walls, SpoFi members may be able to continue following links to content without having to pay for the access, but will this coming transition end up imposing restrictions and/or an economic burden on SpoFi itself?

RIP Mosi Tatupu: Former Patriots' stalwart Mosi Tatupu passed away earlier today. He was a fan favorite during his playing days. One of the most remarkable things about Tatupu was that, despite his Pacific island background, he was one of the Pats' best winter weather players. Somehow he almost always managed to keep his feet under him, even in blizzard conditions. Condolences to Lofa and family.

Annual Patriots trade key piece right before season move

The joke that Greg Maddux tells his friends after he's had a few pops is that Belichick got stopped doing 110 on the interstate with a trunk full of Scarlet Knights.

Apparently, Belichick was so grimly alert and aware of his surroundings that he broke the field sobriety test equipment.

I have asked the government to issue me a dollar for every reference I can find to Florida coach Will Muschamp being on the hot seat, and they are considering my proposal. If they approve the request, I'll be the second coming of Jed Clampett.

Generous food and beverage vouchers for all my fellow SpoFites hang in the balance. Call your congressperson.

Men in Blazers Move to NBC Sports

They've been following the US History category on Jeopardy. Which helped them come up with Lewis and Clark instead of Sacco and Vanzetti.

Soccerjaw weigh in.

Dang, Sergio's pretty well down the leaderboard at the PGA. I was hoping for another chapter in the Affirmed-Alydar saga he's been scripting with McIlroy of late.

Fowler is not far back though, and has recently had a notable go of it with McIlroy as well.

Donovan to Retire at the end of this MLS season

To bad the players on the MNT couldn't have agreed to leave the #10 shirt unassigned for the WC, but FIFA regs required that the number be assigned.

Hunter Pence signs are going viral.

This happens to be a particularly fucked up day at my small end of the world and I have to say that seeing the sign about Pence's Sharknado insurance did me more good than any econo jug of discount wine could possibly do.

Medicinal Mini Haha for real.

Westbrook was a liability at first. It might have gotten overlooked a bit because the team was just moving and getting resettled, etc.

Re: NFL tactics -

As Table Three shows, games lost to injury have risen steadily over four years

That's putting it mildly. Injuries are up 20% in 4 years, with an almost 10% jump from 2010 to 2011 alone.

Wonder what a Bubby Brister in his prime would be worth right now. I'll bet he does too.

I should go to google images to see if the primary search results for "sleeveless tank top T-shirt" have changed from Marlon Brando to Ray Rice.
