One positive thing seems to have come out of the September 19th plane crash that killed four people and seriously injured DJ AM and Travis Barker. Barker’s old friends and fellow Blink 182 members Mark Hoppus and Tom Delonge have reconnected since the tragedy. Hoppus commented on the situation on his blog:
” ‘Does this mean a Blink-182 reunion?’ The answer is none of us know. We haven’t talked about it at all. Right now it’s just good for the three of us to see one another, reconnect and let the past be the past. The events of the past two months supersede everything that happened before. Life is too short.”

On Sunday the Arizona Cardinals attempted something that had not been successfully pulled off since 1968 – a free kick field goal. Players, fans, coaches, and even the refs seemed to be confused about the specifics as it was occurring. Although rare, the free kick can be a useful way to parlay a bad punt into three fast points.
A team may attempt a free kick after fielding a ball on a fair catch (even if the clock runs out during the kicking play). The kicker may not use a tee, and the defense must stay back ten yards from the line of scrimmage. Cards kicker Neil Rackers failed in his attempt, and the New York Giants finished the first half with a 17-12 lead (in a game they would ultimately win.

USA Today Sports Weekly recently released a list ranking all MLB franchises by a number of criteria (including on-field performance and front office business). The Boston Red Sox secured the top spot; thanks in part to five postseason trips in the past two years, two World Series titles, one rookie of the year and multiple Cy Young Award candidates, a healthy mix of high profile veterans and successful home-grown rookies, and maintaining and improving Fenway Park.
