SportsFilter: The Sunday 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.

Three and out: Gophers basketball defeats shorthanded Alabama after entire Tide bench ejected

If I were Dan Mullen, I'd count to five Mississippi and stay right the heck in Starkville and not even answer the phone if Gainesville calls. There are some situations that can never include adequate compensation. Being answerable to Gator Nation is one of them.

A blizzard during the Grey Cup?

Snow started falling about two hours before kickoff, and by the time the teams took the field, officials were scrambling to clear the turf.

Several dozen stadium employees raced with shovels to uncover the lines, while snow plows attempted to clear the end zones. The shovellers and plows also came out during every stoppage in play early on in an effort to keep the snow at bay, and two full-sized plows attached to trucks were added to the snow-clearing effort at halftime.

The temperature at kickoff was minus 3 Celsius, and snow fell steadily throughout the first half.

Yup, that's fantastic and really gives the game the Canadian feel.

109 yard fumble recovery for a touchdown, to turn a potential 15 point lead into a tie?

That's one HELL of a play.

Two 100 yard or more plays for the Argonauts tonight.
And, needed every inch of both of them.

What the?! There seems to be glitch in life's video card. No way a person should be able to do that

The Zay Jones clip can be explained by one of three Milan Kundera titles:

The Unbearable Lightness of Being
The Joke

I'm just not sure which one.

I don't know about you, but I hit all of the links. I am now girthier and more virile, am able to make her scream every time, and own several properties in the northeast of Namibia. Unfortunately, I fear that my existing wife will be displeased by the arrival of her Thai sister wife. Dangers of the interwebz, I suppose.

So that's what hitting the links means. All this time I thought it meant golfing with Tiger Woods and the president.

Oh, it does! What did you think I meant?
