Blog Expo-Fest-O-Rama: Help a Bald Brother Out

• Okay, so it’s not sports-related, but we rather insist.  (And thanks to RIDING WITH RICKY.)

• We’d be more concerned about the Dolphins unwittingly giving up their secrets to the Jets, but… come ON.  They’re the Dolphins.  Here’s the secret: they’re mammals but they live in the water.  Freaky, right?  And people pay to slip on a wetsuit and pet that.  Double freaky, right?  (Maybe we wouldn’t feel that way if we were INSIDE THE DOLPHINS.)

Brian Billick will now blog.  We hope he finds some way to bring his snarky and condescending attitude smoothly to the genteel world of web logging, as represented by the ladies and gentlemen of DEUCE OF DAVENPORT.  Tea time!

• RINGS (which we will miss once Beijing returns to its previous pariah status) wants you to know that Americans can indeed watch the Paralympics if, you know, you like squinting a lot.

• ERIC MUSSELMAN’S BASKETBALL NOTEBOOK (which is totally awesome; we can’t lie) teaches us how former New York Rangers GM Neil Smith negotiates successfully in four simple steps.  We learn more about business from this former NBA head coach than from any pulp book of the week.

Ralph Friedgen is one of the last of an endangered species?  Nonsense; slightly overrated coaches with one strong recruiting class are plentiful.  Oh, THE GRAND NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS meant fat coaches.
