Five men detained, questioned for praying at NY Giants game:

The men were questioned and then were not allowed to return to their seats, but were instead assigned to seats in another section. Three guards stood near them, and escorted them to their cars when they left the stadium.
Was it warranted? The men are Muslim.

Pinella to kick hat from booth in '06?: Lou Pinella's ongoing stint in the broadcast booth during the ALCS is being called a success. Many have expected the former Devil Rays manager to catch on with another team, but he has yet to make plans for next season. Asked if he would make the move upstairs, Lou responded, "It's not for sure -- nothing's for sure. I like it. I'm enjoying this."

Saints skip town.: With Hurricane Katrina bearing down, players were given time to help their families evacuate on Sunday. Then, the New Orleans Saints took the last chartered flight out of town. From California, where they are borrowing the San Jose State Spartans' field, they watched their own stadium's roof sustain significant damage while some ten thousand people sought refuge inside. Three deaths have been reported from within the Louisiana Superdome, the last of which a probable suicide. It is unclear yet if the stadium will be ready for the home opener against the Giants on September 18. Let's hope the Saints and other sports teams will host fundraisers to help the area during its long road to recovery.

Pedal foo: With the Tour comes two little suggestions: a cycling category for SpoFi posts, and a spoked wheel SpoFi logo to shuffle with the balled logos.

SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle

Just an incredible marathon time. How long could you keep up with someone running at that pace? I'd say maybe 400 meters on good day for me.

From the second article:

Scott Jurek, the legendary ultramarathon runner, set a new record in 2015 for running the Appalachian Trail in 46 days. That works out to running 47 miles a day for a month and a half. Since then, his record has already been broken twice.

Now three times, as Karel Sabbe just set the AT record again a few weeks ago.

The amazing thing to me is that the record Sabbe broke was held by Joe McConaughy, who ran the AT in 45+ days unsupported. He carried all his food, handled his own hydration, everything. He averaged ~50 miles a day with a 28 pound pack fully loaded.

"Guys like Jurek and Meltzer run with a fanny pack or a hydration vest. Every ten miles, they come across their crew, who rub their legs while they sit in a chair eating food someone else has prepared. At night, they sleep in a bed and ice their injuries. Contrast that with Joe, who carried a 25-pound pack and set up his own camp and slept on the ground every night."
