Lord, we're an awfully sentimental lot, eh?: Happy belated 10-year anniversary, SportsFilter. I mean, I guess.

MoSpoFi?: SportsFilter is one of the few sites that I visit frequently that are A) Primarily text and B) Nearly unusable on my mobile browser (to the point that I can post a new link with my blackberry, but I can't comment). Any chance there's a more mobile-friendly version of SpoFi in the works? If not, can there be?

Did anyone else get a ton of 'sportsfilter' spam last night?: I got 25+ e-mails from a website called that claimed to have a Sportsfilter-related group and encouraging me to "increase my activity rank". This is to the e-mail addy I have listed in my profile here. No biggie, I can just delete 'em, I was just curious if anyone else here was getting them too.

Post editing/deleting time?: It's been roughly 20 minutes since I posted this comment and I still have the ability to edit it or delete it. Is this a new feature, or is something, somewhere borked?

NYTimes reg-free.: Twice in the past two days, people have posted (very good) links to NYTimes articles. The old grey lady is a great paper with some fantastic - and often unique - content, but she's a harsh mistress when it comes to registration. Can I go ahead and provide SpoFi with the NYTimes Link Generator for those that are unaware?

It was a few days ago, but SpoFi has crossed the 15k threshold. Yowza.

The link for a user profile on the front page is this URL:: and returns a 404. Anywhere else on the site, it's and works just fine.

SpoFi Stadium Cup Swap.: Anyone interested in doing a swap of stadium cups? I've accumulated a ton of TX Rangers cups from the beer vendors at the Ballpark in Arlington that are actually pretty decent quality (worth keeping)but would like to swap them out for cups from other stadiums (of any sport). Any takers?

SpoFi CD Swap!: It's been discussed at least twice, and while I'm pulling together the final few selections for my Summer Mix CD, I'm just going to take the damned initiative. If you want to join the SpoFi CD Swap, just e-mail me at the addy in my profile with SpoFi Swap as the subject. [More Inside]

And thus began the SpoFi Wiki (what's a Wiki?) I tossed it together pretty hastily, so please feel free to edit anything that seems loquacious or stumbly. Also, add add add and it can become the source for all questions SpoFi. Do note that the formatting of linkage and text alteration in Wiki is far different from your standard html. It's not difficult by any means, but html won't work. I'm not sure if more than one person can edit at a time, so it may be a good idea, at least initially, if you would comment here that you were editing and then comment again when you're done. Enjoy.

***SPOFI LOCKER ROOM INTERVIEW*** WorldCup2002: "I feel weird about this, but OK. I'll play along." It's time to turn the mic and have the interviewer become the interviewee. Meet the man named after a Sporting Event that took place more than six months ago, WorldCup2002.

Simply out of Navel-Gazingness (and taking it to a whole new level) I was just curious as to how many SpoFi'ers are actually involved in sports on a personal level (playing or refereeing). Are there any truly active members out there?

In both the main SpoFi page and the Locker Room, the "There have been X posts and X comments since your last visit" are hardly ever accurate (win 98, IE 6). There are times when I know a new post (or two or three) have been made or new comments, but it's often very difficult to try to remember how many comments there were in a particular thread last time I was here.
