Links and videos from recent happenings around the sporting world. If you come across good articles, videos, etc. – please pass them along, I’d love to take a look.
This is far and away the most tedious post I “write” every week and it’s starting to burn me out. This week is a little light on links – not sure if there haven’t been any or I just haven’t been paying attention. Anyway, we’ll see how this evolves – if you have any suggestions, don’t hesitate to leave them in the comments section!
