  6. ESPN has the story of Pekka Rinne's rise in fantasy value.
  7. Laura Astorian of Thrashing the Blues was in town last week for the Predators-Blues game and had a positive experience and said "this is what hockey is in the South. An identity, tie in to the city's culture, solid owners and management - all this lures a huge and passionate fanbase to Smashville." It was nice meeting her and for her understanding of what Smashville is all about.

It turns out that crowd behavior varies throughout the world. This is interesting stuff from the Economist.
