2 things on Espn.com

1) Now that they have made chats, Peter Gammons, Jason Stark, and everyone else "Insider", I'm convinced that there are only 6 weeks left until boxscores cost $40 per year as well. I guess it's SI.com for me.

2) Look at the title of this article. I realize his last name is pronounced "wahng" with a long "a" instead of a schwah (you know, the upsidedown e), and I also understand the pun by playing off "rise" with "sinker", but there is no way this wasn't intentional. With the possible exceptions of "Dick Butkus' late penetration saves the day" and "Dick Pole slams it home", this is the most suggestive copy I've ever read. And I like it.

Thank you dorf for the password share. However, I am going to pull it down as Blogger.com has informed me that publically posting a password that gives access to a commercial pay site is a big no-no.
