Would You Rather Win Silver Or Bronze? (Be Careful What You Wish For): "If you set aside the happy people who win gold and look only at the people who come in second and third, it's the men and women with bronze medals who invariably look happier than the athletes who won silver."

SportsFilter: The Sunday Huddle

Either Coughlin just has Belichek's number or Mr. Hoodie deliberately plays it close with the Giants (especially when they're having a bad season) to annoy the hapless Jets.

New York Mets Back in the World Series

My Dad is a huge fan of the Mets and he's thrilled, so I'm thrilled. That said, wow I'd love to see a Cubs World Series.

Headline is NSFW, but check out these videos of Robert Lewandowski scoring 5 goals in 9 minutes for Bayern Munich. The last one in particular is gorgeous.

NFL Announces Punishment for Patriots' Deflated Balls

I hope Greg Maddux never learns you compared him to The Patriots. The consequences could be dire for all of us.

NFL Announces Punishment for Patriots' Deflated Balls

Fine the Patriots $1,000,000.

Cut Brady for four games. Brady makes $925,000 a game. Four games is $3,700,000.

Net Savings to Patriots: $2,700,000.

SportsFilter: The Thursday Huddle

No contemporary Yankees on the list. I would think there would be at least some top 4 love for Mariano Rivera or even maybe recent sentimental favorite Jetter. Rivera may have been the greatest relief pitcher ever (though I don't have the stats to prove that).

Remaining conviction against Barry Bonds is overturned.

DeflateGate Accusations Mean It's Time For Coach and Owner To Be Banned From NFL

Well, he's making a rhetorical point more than literally calling for them to be banned, but let's all agree that its time for Roger Goodell to be banned.

Patriots Win Super Bowl 0x31 After Epic Last-Second Interception

Have the goal posts been moved so far that now we're having a "whose better Montana or Brady" conversation instead of the "Manning or Brady" conversation? Did this win decisively lead our world to agree that Brady wins the latter conversation? Because I see almost no talk about Manning this week...

(which is a shame, because he's still one of the finest quarterbacks we'll see in our lifetimes)
