Chipper Jones to retire at end of 2012 season: Next stop, Cooperstown. What I found most interesting is the "yet-to-be-determined role" they are exploring for him. Batting coach perhaps?

Peyton Manning Has No Feeling In His Fingertips

I know for a fact that I don't have the touch to throw as well as I could before my surgery, so it's incredibly impressive that he can continue to do it at such a high level.

Peyton Manning Has No Feeling In His Fingertips

I have the same issue and have had the same surgery Peyton had, and he's spot on. I heard the same thing from various doctors, and I can tell its tough to deal with for a long time. Now, it's just the new normal.

Luis Suarez Banned 9 Games for Biting Opponent

This should make it very hard for Liverpool to move his... poisoned fruit and all that. There's no way they could get the cash they would require to move him right now. Thank goodness that they botched Arsenal attempt to activate his buyout clause failed.

MetaFilter User Proposes New Site Called 'Sportsfilter'

I've often wondered why thing have seemingly gotten so quiet here. Some days, all we have is the daily huddle. I suppose that I'm as much to blame as anyone else, but the general malaise seems pretty widespread. This used to be the first site I'd check over coffee in the morning, looking for lively discussion over the latest news or the latest in the series of user interviews.

How does the site's traffic stack up to it's historical numbers?
