I once had to sit through an infomercial for Snuggies, because I was under a normal blanket and couldn't get my arms free to find the remote.

Bullshit...you were reaching around desperately for your telephone. It's a vicious cycle, if you were in a Snuggie, you'd be able to more efficiently order a doggie Snuggie.

Water Consumption in Edmonton during the Olympic hockey gold medal game.

I came in here to post this very article.

I'm not surprised when they say that almost 80% of Canada watched some part of that game. Even friends of mine who have NO cable and NEVER follow sports, were watching the game on the CTV internet feed.

I shudder to think of the state of this nation if Team Canada had lost that game...

I live in Edmonton and can assure you I didn't move off my couch during the breaks:)

Player Ratings: Wigan Athletic 1-0 Liverpool

Most of the Reds got 4s but I thought that was being generous. I don't remember a worse effort in years with terrible passing and no aggression up top. Acquilani tried to make a difference after coming on but he's not the guy to do it by himself, at least not yet.

Update to Joey's link from earlier, they broke said record this evening.

Impressive streak. Every victory has been by 10+ points. I suppose it also helps to have reportedly the 2 best players in the game on the same team.

And if you turn it upside-down, you'll get the Beer Consumption in Edmonton during the Olympic hockey gold medal game chart.

Sports Illustrated celebrates their new winning streak with a picture essay of some of the most revered sports streaks.

I found it amusing that they chose a picture of the amazing Diana Taurasi from the streak they just broke, but otherwise a nice little slide show of stuff that you probably already know.
