I never ever celebrate a player's injury, but I read the last clause of this sentence and my eyes rolled back in my head, cannons went off and an entire orchestra hit their crescendo:

With all of the talk about statistics running around I thought we could use a little grounding from the reigning king of East Nashville, Todd Snider, and his Statistician's Blues. Snider reminds us that 'They say 92 percent of everything you learned in school was just b*ll***t you'll never need'.

• MLB Stephen Tulloch
• DT Kevin Vickerson
• RB LenDale White
Estwick chats with Kenny Britt about CJ's potential record.
Great write-up on David 'Big Country' Stewart by his hometown area paper.
