SpoFi Does Sunday Night Baseball (Pt. 2): After good chat in last Sunday night's 10-inning Giants-Dodgers affair with a great pitching match up (Schmidt and Maddux) taking the mound and pitching spectacularly, join us in the SpoFi campfire chat for another great match-up as Curt Schilling and Mike Mussina face off in a battle between two small market teams that don't get a lot of press. Same details for joining the chat as found here.

Ask SpoFi: Prime/Peak Age -- As a baseball junkie, I know that in baseball a player is generally considered to be in his prime in his age 27 year (or some span including that, like 26-28). I am curious as to what are considered the peak/prime ages in other sports (both U.S. and non-U.S. sports, and including variations by positions -- e.g., running backs v. quarterbacks in American football) and have been unable to find any clear-cut answers online. Any thoughts?

Time Stamp: Perhaps this is the website equivalent of being the grammar police or some sort of other pedant, but we are in daylight time now, and the posts and comments still show up with a time stamp reflecting standard time. (To the mods -- please delete this as necessary once you have seen it -- just wanted to raise the issue. To the non-mods -- please analogize some or all of your favorite championship-winning teams to Star Wars characters.)
