SportsFilter: The Wednesday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

Is there any chance that some of Jon Gruden's in-game comments on Monday Night Football are prerecorded?

I see Washington owner Dan Snyder and some members of the U.S. Congress are butting heads over the team name again. And Snyder is being a douche...again.

Five Ways to Survive Game 7

I am far less violent and unstable while watching hockey than I once was. Perhaps it's the cost of the viewing equipment that keeps the bottles, shoes, eating utensils, or whatever else is at hand from flying towards the flat panel. I mostly confine myself to fist pounding and screaming, and these reactions happen at points that are both favorable and unfavorable to my team. However, my cats now recognize the voices of the announcers on the NBC Sports broadcasts and cower terrified in a corner of the basement until the game is over.

I wanted the Red Wings to win, but after that disallowed goal, I can't feel too bad about Chicago winning in the end. My heart is still fill of (sports) hate for Hossa, though. Something about him just annoys me.

And before tonight's game the 5 remaining teams were the last 5 Cup winners...

It has been a rough year. Tigers were swept in the World Series, U-M football lost the Outback Bowl in the last minute, U-M basketball lost in the NCAA championship game, and now the Wings lose Game 7 at home. Ugh. Almost makes me appreciate the Lions never playing in any meaningful games.
