Skillnaden ar drinkability

For the cartophiles out there (i.e., all of us): Map of Popular Super Bowl words used on Twitter. It's interactive, too. (Anyone who did not enjoy Conan's Bud Light promo has comedy problems).

Also from the Times, an old piece from David Foster Wallace on Roger Federer. The interesting thing about the piece is that he goes on all these tangents within the article (that's ostensibly a feature on Federer), most of which only loosely concern Federer, but he somehow manages to make them seem relevant. Plus, the footnotes (which is something for which his work has been criticized) are actually a plus for something like this.

(The Wallace piece was from their monthly Play sports magazine...kind of like their better version of Sports Illustrated after SI went down the tubes. Anyone know if they're still publishing it?)

I heard Play is kaput. But it was good. Did you ever read that big feature on the plight of field goal kickers?

I think you linked to that once on here...it was fantastic, though.

Great story. I read every word and really got involved in the shot-by-shot writing.

I think that's why the footnotes worked so well...you could go back to them if the shot-by-shot descriptions were too important to break away from.
