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.

SportsFilter has outgrown its server on Amazon Web Services. I'm moving it up a tier as soon as I can. Sorry about the database crashes.

Your day is not complete until you see Adam Vinatieri chase down Herschel Walker on a kickoff.

@rcade, as long as you're doing maintenance... Ever since you switched to https I have the weirdest experience. I seem to be signed in, as I see the number of new comments per post but the sign in box on the top of the sidebar shows the form with username/password filled in instead of "username (logout) AND the new comment count is always off by at least one (e.g., the new day's huddle shows comments as, say, "2 comments, 1 new" when it isn't possible that I saw any comments.

Then, if I click the sign in button, the display is correct but I lose the new comments per post number.

Very strange. Is anyone else seeing similar?

Exactly the same thing.

And also, that Vinatieri video was awesome.
