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.

Trade deadline daydreaming:

The Cowboys could either keep cranking out 4 turnovers a game with things the way they are, or they could crank out 4 turnovers a game with Jameis under center and move the ball downfield for scores when they weren't turning it over.

It's not like they don't have people to throw to.

I don't know if anyone else has an account at The Athletic, but someone suggested a modification to their "Awesome" article rating button and I built it.

I installed it, fatty, but I don't know what it does over there.

Click on the Awesome button at the bottom of an article. I need to build out the documentation in 0.2; I just wasn't sure if Google would publish it.

I assume it will get old at some point. Not so far.

Since it's Boston sports I already disabled it, but it's a fantastic idea that can work in all regions. I'm sure there are quotable quotes everywhere. You could even use the "Dunkies" lady that voted at Fenway

She apparently staged that, which is disappointing but yeah, all I did was base64 encode the audio I stripped from a YouTube video, so you do you. I could make it customizable I suppose.
