Would that be considered a biological weapon under the Geneva Convention?

Want to Close the Locker Room?

Would it be possible to add an option for people to post to the sidelines? It'd need to be reviewed and approved before actually showing up. That might help the sidelines stay more up to date.

I don't know if you got my email or not, I posted and emailed you right before you put up your comment about not getting any emails. Better options out there anyway from the sounds of it.

Should SportsFilter Think of the Children?

That's the crux: you could care less, but expect us to care greatly about your concerns, and you insult us in the meantime!

Pushing an Agenda on SportsFilter

Sheldon would never bother with World Domination. After doing a cost/benefit analysis, it turns out it really isn't worth the bother.

Comments with Profanity

For some reason, there is an inverse relationship between profanity and civility in discussions. This isn't always the case, but it trends to be true.

owlhouse, I hate to break it to you, but the fact that it's a Detroit Lions sweater is the defect.

SportsFilter Under Development

I think we're going to give deleted posts and comments their own pages, so you'll still be able to see what you're missing.

Is there anyway to have them all show up in some random order so nobody is sure which are comments and which are threads and everything is a jumbled mess and entirely out of context?

It's 2009. What Resolution Should Your Team/Player Make?

William Clay Ford should resolve to sell the Lions to the highest bidder from LA who promises to move them and have them play in the Coliseum. The new owner should also feel free to change the colors to red and yellow.

CD Swap 2009!

BoKnows, when I was playing around with it last year, I discovered that 150% speed works a lot better than 200% speed for most songs. Some sound good at 175% and even fewer actually sounded good at 200%.

Some of the lyrics take a twisted lyric when imagining Alvin and the Chipmunks singing it. "I hope my boyfriend don't mind it." hahaha.

Don't be afraid to sign up people. I can't do it this time so nobody will be receiving Katy Perry's "I Kissed A Girl" at double speed. Well, at least not from me.

New Wii User: Recommend a soccer title?

WiiFit has a soccer themed balance game where you have to head balls. Probably not worth the $90 just for that one experience though.

New front page categories

Okay, lbb, I tried that. I can only see the last months worth of "Other" posts and looking at the archives for a specific month doesn't include the Category of the post so I'll have to do a more time intensive study later. On to preliminary results, for the five posts put in the Other category for the last month, 3 are cycling related, 1 is Rugby related, and 1 is about ESPN's search for some city to name as Titletown.

I did laugh a lot. My kids were asking what was so funny. I asked them if they knew who bombed pearl harbor. I learned they need to teach more history in third grade.

If you really want to claim to have a lower number, just pretend it's binary and then you'll be 17.

I just have nothing funny or witty or intelligent to add these days. Sometimes the best use of the post button is to not.

Chmn Dingle: I'd like to address some questions to Barbaro's Ghost. Steroids have been show to cause health problems, more specifically problems with bones. Was your broken leg and failure to heal, despite a large amount of effort and medical attention, a side affect of your use of horse steroids?
