I think we all know what sporting event to concentrate on today…the Westminster Dog Show. I know very little about this sport, but I have learned that Xoloitzcuintli is apparently a breed of dog, which is news to me because I was positive it was an Aztec Warrior God. The finals are tonight, so...

The “Smash-7″ combination route on the front side of the play (Nicks...

Continuing my look at Super Bowl-related products, I thought I’d look at some sauce sets. ThisĀ Stone Breweries BBQ Sauce SetĀ is inspired by some of their popular microbrews. I’m a fan of Stone’s Porter, so the Molasses-based Porter sauce is my favorite here. Has anyone else used these?

As much as I love The Onion generally, their sports reporting is far and away funnier than anything else they do. And now they’ve gathered a lot of their best stuff into a collection called The Ecstasy of Defeat: Sports Reporting at Its Finest by the Editors of the Onion.

Have you noticed that no one in sports is named “Bob” anymore? So did SBNation, who conducted a comprehensive review of major American sports and discovered that Chargers (and former Iowa) Safety Bob Sanders is the only remaining Bob in professional sports.

And I don’t intend to follow the form of that work by having a...

My trek continued across the Plains today and I didn’t post anything (again) because I was hoping to beat a big winter storm. Amazingly, I did outmaneuver the storm and arrived in Laramie with storms on every side of me except one…forward. And then I went forward and over the cover provided by those...
