The New York Times is hosting a "hang out" on Wednesday at noon Eastern on Google Plus. Judy Battista and I will be talking draft and answering questions via webcams. If you have Google Plus, and a camera, you can join us. If not, you can follow along at the Fifth Down blog at the Times.
I would love to see you guys, so come on out!

Remembering Buddy and the Bounty Bowls. It is amazing how we hear the same rhetoric 23 years later.

I have been writing a lot of "list gags" for the New York Times lately, and as usual I have been forgetting to link some of them here. In this Tim Tebow feature, I was given strict limits about the number or religious references. A challenge! Anyway, scroll through the Fifth Down history and you will also find a timeline of the Peyton Manning free agent saga.
