SportsFilter: The Thursday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

I just spent an hour reading this and watching all the links. Kudos, Grantland.

An hour to figure out Ulf Samuelsson was the answer? I guess Tikkanen might have given him a run for his money, but Tikkanen was at least amusing.

That said, thanks for the link, just lost a bunch of time to it and plan to lose a bunch more. Man, I miss Wendell Clark.

Good Christ, if Ulf Samuelsson is the answer, maybe a question shouldn't be asked. Also, I didn't remember Mrs. Jones Gretzky getting knocked out by the glass. Classic! (in a sad, pretty girl getting brained kinda way).

Pepsi MAX & Jeff Gordon Present: "Test Drive"

Re: Darcy Tucker and his headshot on Sami Kapanen: That played showed you just how tough Kapanen was and it embodied the word "sisu." Just about everyone else would've stayed down on the ice until the whistle blew, but not Sami. He stumbled, scratched and clawed is way back to the bench to keep the play alive which led to Roenick potting the game winner.

The Kyrie Irving Pepsi commercial, where he plays ball on the New Jersey playground dressed as old man Uncle Drew, is funny too. Not as funny as the Gordon one, though.

I would like to file a complaint to the NCAA selection committee about some of the basketball uniforms I've seen today.

(I think those Notre Dame shorts are different from the ones they're wearing right now, but it's hard to tell when they're moving around, it's all a bit hazy).

That Notre Dame uniform looks like a frickin' church picnic Jello salad from Prairie Home Companion.

Yeah, I saw that Cincy uniform today and was almost ok with the death of the Big East.

Man, I miss Wendell Clark.

Well, here are his 17 greatest moments in the NHL.
