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 know this is a day late (family gathering for Christmas dinner in CT), but the wish is no less sincere. I hope an pray that this will be a blessed Christmas for all, especially my fellow SpoFites. May your games be well-played and exciting, your teams be successful, and sportsmanship prevail.

Bobby Bowden has lost a second grandson to a car crash.

I feel very badly for Coach Bowden. He has lost multiple family members to infamous Florida roadway hazards. I-10 is a notorious stretch of highway, and the roadside canals have taken many lives. The canals don't look like much of anything to worry about when you're driving along next to them, but they are deep and wide enough to swallow a car.
