Afternoon Links

  • If you are tired of reading through endless stuff about Michael Vick to try and get the details and implications right, you should probably just read Michael Wilbon's article in the Washington Post. It's the best peice I've seen so far on the issue. Plus, you get the following quote from lawyer David Cornwell.
    "But is it 'keeping it real' to put a $100 million business at risk?"
    If only Chappelle were around to do a Michael Vick skit.
  • If you are into these types of things, here are some NFL position rankings via CBS. Not too disagreeable - Troy is a little low, where's Casey Hampton, and I'm finally glad somewhat brought up Faneca's poor pass blocking.
  • Scroll down a little bit to see the picture and stats that the ThePensBlog dug up for the 1996 Pens team. Amazing stats, and maybe an even better picture.
  • This is old, but it is one of my favorite pieces of sports writing ever: David Foster Wallace conceptualizes Roger Federer. If you appreciate athletic greatness and have an eye for superb writing, this is a must-read.
  • The fellas at BlogNGold have some great burning questions about the upcoming Steelers season.

Man, these are the times I miss Chappelle most. This woulda been right up his alley!
