SportsFilter: The Sunday 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.

RIP actor Bruno Ganz who played Hitler in the film Downfall, with the classic bunker scene that was the basis of many sports parodies such as this one.

After Don Cherry called the Hurricanes players "a bunch of jerks" for their post-game home wins, the organization have embraced that (look on the left side of the page) much like the Red Sox's "the idiots" name many years ago.

I love the celebrations because it's doing a lot to crush the culture of losing that had taken over the team for many years.

Speaking of embracing it. Can't wait to buy one

I wish I could host a travel / sports / nature show. I'd do a segment featuring Don Cherry and Ted Nugent playing water polo among fur seals in the waters off Cape Town. The more thrashing, the better.
