Reminder: This was a road game. - Tom Szczerbowski
We're trying out a new format for the FTB. We'll see how things go. Please read the programming note.
We're going to be changing up the FTB a bit going forward. A post that is strictly links will go up in the early morning and then the articles we write in them will go into their own post later in the day. We feel that often times the FTB articles get overlooked so we wanted to break them out into their own post so they get the attention they deserve.
Also, we received a note from a couple of you lazy westerners that by the time you had hauled your slothful behinds out of bed that us industrious easterners (who are freezing no thanks to you guys) have chalked up too many comments. So, we're returning to our old policy of having Chatty Cathy fanshots posted where you guys can chat about the miscellany of life. Now, it's up to you guys to set it up and attract people over there. Post a link in the comments so people can follow the bread crumbs. In the meantime, while there is some leeway for going off topic, we'll all be deleting comments that are off-topic. As with most things here, we'll see how it goes and adjust on the fly.
Without further ado, today's links
