Talking Points: TGIF Edition

Lady Vol love: Florida never had a chance.  Way to go out on your own court, gals!

Tribute:

  • GVX leaves RTT out of its daily link dump - probably an indicator of how much even they miss Joel.
  • GVX also has the interesting conundrum of link-dumping to a link-dump.  (Registration required for that one, but the lead-in sentence is sufficient to get the idea.)  It's kind of like looking at a mirror in a mirror, and seeing the "tunnel to infinity".
  • Truzenzuzex (Tru, for short) at A Sea of Blue has some interesting words about Lofton coming to UT and the impact it's had on the players in Kentucky.  Worth a read, even if you hate, hate, hate Kentucky.  Tru runs a fantastic site and keeps it respectful.
  • The Lexington Herald-Leader effectively labels Bruce Pearl as a copycat of Pitino.  (Compliment?  You tell us.)
  • England beat France last Saturday in Rugby Union.  You know, just in case you missed it.
  • Why a Rugby link?  I've found this little gem of a site from the Professional Football Researchers Association, and have enjoyed learning a lot about the origins of American football.  Amazing stuff, and a lot of the game's idiosyncrasies make a lot more sense when their origins are explained.  Learn why there are 7 men on theline of scrimmage.  Learn how the modern game owes its start to Teddy Roosevelt.
Speaking of Joel, where is our dear, beloved lawyer, anyhow?

Hope you're having fun on your trip, buddy!
