Merry Christmas OT-ers. Read a story a while back about a reporter with a crypto-ethnic surname who found out he was really a black dude who just looked white. Interesting read if you don't mind the TL;DR-ishness.

Appreciate the help. I'm just over for the holidays and will be coming back mid Jan, so it sounds like the VPN and possibly some of the streaming sites might be good. People I'm staying with have the Sky Sports package that shows the NFL games, imagine the playoffs would be included in that, no? ...

I'll be in England for a couple of weeks in the midst of bowl season and NFL playoffs. Does the WatchESPN app work over there or do you have to find alternative methods to watch CF? Also what's the best UK TV channels / streaming sites for NFL?
Thanks in advance....

Since 1 and 2 are paramount in the old BCS system, that's pretty significant. It'll be interesting to see the same comparison after the CCGs are over.
For now, even though it's close, I think the playoff committee has it right. No one except Noles fan thinks FSU should be #2....

That Confederations Cup in South Africa was the zenith for US Soccer as far as the quality of play goes. We played lights out, and probably should have beaten Brazil and won it.
