SportsFilter: The Tuesday 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.

It's way too quiet tonight. Is everyone at their local church eating pancakes and sausages for Shrove Tuesday, or are you all out partying for Mardis Gras? I'm up in the mountains with my wife on a brief getaway, but I'm still trying to keep up.

We've all left the country voluntarily and are huddled up in the Maritimes with Cher, Amy Schumer, and Miley Cyrus. Other distraught celebrities are expected shortly.

We're bringing in Bill Burr as an emotional guide and spiritual adviser.

I had to fly down to California for work last week and again this week. Uggh!

Does that mean we're headed toward a new Star Trek body swap reality inhabited by owl@work and grumhouse? Will this destabilize planet SpoFi?

body swap reality inhabited by owl@work and grumhouse

My original user id for SpoFi was grum@home (because Rogers email system was "@home" originally...or maybe it was just "grum", I forget exactly). When we got internet access at work (maybe a week later), I wanted to login but I forgot my password. I couldn't access my @home email account if I did a password retrieval, so I created the "grum@work" userid (just over 15 years ago, it seems) as a temporary measure so I could read/comment on stuff while at work that day (and chose an easier password to remember).

I never went back to the original user id, and I've posted 207 links and 8743 comments on my "temporary" account.

I am, however, posting this from my house.

I'll never believe anything ever again.

Hey, I'm sorry I woke everyone up. I didn't really mean to do that. It's nice to know everyone's still alive, though.

I'm glad we can get a bunch of messages out of a simple, friendly "how ya doin'?"

Who needs Tebow, Goodell or Sandusky?

That original grum@home user ID -- isn't that worth some serious money, like a Robin Yount rookie card or something?

There are Allen Iverson bots in the world we inhabit?
