SportsFilter: The Saturday 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.

I have recently become hooked on the videos of Jon Bois, who does "Chart Party" for SBNation on YouTube. I love these deep-dive, make-a-mountain-out-of-a-molehill takes. The linked video searches for the saddest punt of the 21st century. I think it succeeds.

This Jomboy Media video about the Reds/Pirates fight was damn funny. Have yet to dig into his other videos, though

Jon Bois is probably the best sports storyteller on the internet.

Every single one of his crazy videos that he's made have been amazing.

Even when it's pretend sports, it's so very entertaining.

Looks like Bill Belichick has gone dumpster diving again and has signed the aforementioned Mr. Brown to a one year contract for 15 million. If his attitude adjusts sufficiently, the Patriots will put a formidable set of receivers on the field.

The Queen of Queens!

From reddit: "A woman born in the 2000s has won a Grand Slam tennis before any man born in the 1990s."
