The Hall of Fame Rejection Committee: For reasons passing understanding, Buffalo sports-talk hosts Mike Schopp and the Bulldog have been eliminating three baseball players from the Hall of Fame each day, with the intent of eventually arriving at a single Hall of Famer. It's one of those sports-talk-radio things that makes sense while you're listening to the show, but when you're linking it on SportsFilter, you're hard-pressed to come up with a post explaining why it makes sense at all. Hmmmmm....
The NFL lowers the boom on Vegas parties.: Apparently a number of Super Bowl parties in Las Vegas have to be cancelled because, according to the NFL, charging someone to be able to see the game on a large-screen TV constitutes copyright violation, in some way. I confess I am very fuzzy on just what the NFL's complaint here is. (NYT Registration required)
How many times has the team leading the Super Bowl at the half gone on to win?: Find out in this article of useless Super Bowl trivia, with items numbered 1 to 38 and based on this year's matchup. One factoid that didn't get in this article is that this will be the Patriots' first Super Bowl appearance not played in the Superdome in New Orleans. (You're wondering if I have a life? I think it's pretty obvious that I don't!)
It was the Figure Skater, in the corridor, with a lead pipe!: Ten years have passed since Tonya Harding's goons set out to "handicap" the competition, Nancy Kerrigan. Ten years, wow....that's a long time....[crickets chirping]....what? Skating's a sport! It is! Honest!
Are the NFL's fines for excessive end-zone celebrations racially motivated?: This op-ed piece, from The Buffalo News, says Yes.
