Favicon

This post from J-Walk about his new favicon reminded me that a week or two ago, Jorn Barger from Robot Wisdom Weblog was nice enough to create a favicon for this blog which I downloaded and lost in a folder. (I have made idiocy into an art form). I just found it and put it on my site. A favicon is an icon associated with a website that you will see to the left of the url (it may take a few reloads to show itself). Jorn was the person who coined the term “weblog” and if not for his Robot Wisdom I probably wouldn’t have this hobby so I thank him twice.

Have you ever wondered what happened to your favorite ski area? Why did it close? What was the history behind it? Ever driven by a closed ski area and wondered what it was, its legacy?

NELSAP is here to answer your questions. Stories, pictures, and hard facts are used to describe the lost ski areas of New England and elsewhere. Since October of 1998 more than 600 areas have been listed on this site! Each state is listed on the menu bar on the left side of this webpage. Just click a state and you’ll be on your way to exploring some rather interesting history.

I guess Randy Moss wasn’t the dumbest person on that team after all.

Tice admits scalping Super Bowl tickets this season

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Tice acknowledged to NFL security investigators on Tuesday that he scalped part of his personal allotment of 12 tickets to last month’s Super Bowl, a violation of league rules that could result in him being fined or otherwise punished by NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue.

“I probably shouldn’t have sold my tickets,” Tice told SI.com on Thursday. “I made a mistake. I regret it. I’ll never do it again. I’m going to be in trouble. I’ll probably get slapped with a big fine.”

The revelation that Tice admitted scalping some of his own Super Bowl tickets comes two days after SI.com first reported that he is being investigated by the NFL for allegedly heading and profiting from a Super Bowl ticket-scalping operation within the Vikings organization.
