Here is some cool stuff, only some of which is tangentially related to American football. ;D
A replica of the greatest game ever, Mattel Handheld Electronic Football.
It’s also free for today only.
The more you know…
Speaking of tweeting and football, Bob Timmermann informs us,
Little known Super Bowl fact: Because New Orleans is playing in the game, the NFL rulebook will be replaced by the Napoleonic Code.
Yes, yes I am!
“Inside the Dodgers” asks the rhetorical yet vital question, “Are you ready for some baseball?”:
It’s the last official day of football season, so get it out of your system now and get ready to start watching America’s pastime.
Good gracious, yes!
The LA Kings have reached a franchise-record nine-game wins in a row and are going for 10 against crosstown rivals the Anaheim Ducks tomorrow. They’re currently in fourth place in the Western Conference.
Blaming the victims? ;)
Cyclists on busy roads a nuisance http://ow.ly/14NvT #bikenews
which prompted me to reply,

Slashdot mentions a blog post by a computer science student who sticks with a pen and paper instead of a laptop for note-taking during class, “My Classmates Are Taking Their Notes Digitally, But I Can’t Fathom How They Keep Up”
I noticed today that as I frantically scribbled to keep up with my philosophy professor’s lecture, there was an audible hum of typing in the classroom. It was the first time I noticed that I could count more students using netbooks than notebooks to take notes in class.
Call me old-fashioned, but I like to take notes with a pen and paper. As I’ve discussed previously, the act of writing helps cement the lecture material in my mind better than passive listening does, and studies have shown that it’s not just me.[...] Still, I know that my old-fashioned ways are quickly going out of style.
