The 2,000-yard Rushers: An unlikely source (The KC Chiefs homepage) for an insightful article. Especially interesting is the game-by-game: in Sanders' 2,000-yard season, he was shut down in week 1 and 2. Overall, it sure puts into perspective how tough the feat is to accomplish.

Oil Country vs. Canes Country: A Tale of Two Cities: As a lifetime die-hard Oilers fan, I've had more than a little trouble accepting just the idea that the Stanley Cup could end up in "Canes Country", North Carolina. It's good to see that the media in NC is doing their part to help people understand exactly what the Stanley Cup means to us up here in Canada. That, and after reading this, I have a new respect for their fans (yes, all three of them as th eold adage goes...).

The 2,000-yard Rushers

Hey, if the guy wants to retire, I say let him. After all, he was pretty successful with his fried chicken franchise, so I'm sure he's not complaining. BTW, what's with all the mistaken identity going on here? ;-)

A Tale of Two Seasons

Roberts said it best in the second post: "Edmonton played like they wanted the Cup. The Wings played like they didn't care." While the refs were atrocious for most of the series, that goes both ways. The fact is, every game was close, but one team found a way to win more often. That's not lucky - that's doing what it takes to win in the playoffs. One team did what it took to win; one team didn't.
