Sunday Night Football Flex Scheduling Watch: Week 9

NBC’s Sunday Night Football package gives it flexible scheduling. For the last seven weeks of the season, the games are determined on 12-day notice, 6-day notice for Week 17.

But not only is Cowboys-Eagles now the game of the […]

I have no idea why I went back to the incredible irritatingness of WordPress table handling, except I couldn’t think of anything else. All times Eastern. TOP 25 GAMES […]

Why “Lists” are my Favorite New Twitter Feature

My first reaction upon learning of Twitter’s new “Lists” feature was “What the hell would the point of that be?” It seemed like a needless gimmick that didn’t really necessarily add anything to the Twitter experience. When I entered the list-access group, and started to explore what lists were really like, I realized that not […]
