Re tennis, it's been greatly improved by replay. Arguments and controversies over line calls are nearly gone. There are many fewer point and game penalties. Now they just need a timer between points...

At seven minutes left I turned the game off, piddled around, then decided I'd endure the 20+ point blowout.
Was a pleasant surprise...

80% of interceptions due to bad routes? Seems way high.
Cool read though.

Congratulations to the Saints and what a game by Brees. 32/39, two touchdowns, no interceptions, rating of 114.5.

I consider five or ten seconds before the snap to be part of the game--with the quarterback frantically calling plays and changes, the defense showing and pulling back blitzes, players in motion, etc. There's a lot going on.

The car deserves the award more than the driver. At least with the horse they voted for the thing that provides all the power.

"The Colts, to that point, had scored touchdowns on 4/14 drives, or 28.6% of the times they held the ball. Only one drive was less than two minutes in length. I understand that letting Peyton have the ball back is a scary thing, but statistically, they were more likely to stop him than not from 70 yards out."
You're assuming that all drives are equal. The previous drive before the 4th and 2 was the sub two minute drive, and it was obvious watching it that the Patriots' defense was gassed.

This is awesome even though it makes me feel very, very old.

More like a monument to socialism/statism given that it's state owned.

Doesn't sound much worse than Sharapova the Shriek.
