I'm not sure if you would call this a last minute or last second touchdown, but the play actually last slightly more than 1 minute.
Yesterday, talk-sports.net got very sluggish and sometimes even non-responsive. This was do to the amount of traffic on the Web application. That's a nice problem. It means were growing and we need more resources. I moved things around a bit and things seem to have stabilized. Now, I'm considering what to do next so that this doesn't happen again. I checked the value of Talk-Sports on dnScoop and it's currently valued at $43,248. I think it's worth a lot more, because dnScoop picked up a PageRank of 0 instead of 4. Further, Alexa ranked Talk-Sports 121,398 last week and once you crack the top 100,000, your value should skyrocket. I'd like to sell it for $100,000 to somebody that can give it better server resources.
Bobby Orr scored possibly the two greatest goals in NHL history. Many remember the Superman goal where he flew thru the air as he won the Stanley Cup, but his greatest goal is the elbow pass. On the play, Bobby Orr, lying on his back, passes the puck from his elbow to his stick, then hits Johny Bucyk with a blind pass on the tape, in the slot for an easy goal. This is the best video I've found of the play. From the 20 to 30 second mark, the play is shown in blown up slow motion. Please sit down Ovechkin.
Here's a preview of the Sidney Crosby special on Versus tomorrow night.

Here's the Jordin Tootoo hit on Daniel Winnick and the retaliation of Craig Weller.
I love reader what people are writing about the Steve Downie situation. Total bandwagon jumping. I have to wonder if some of these guys have even seen the hit. MG Franklin of Canada.com writes "Senators' centre Dean McAmmond suffered a concussion after being hit from behind and into the glass by Steve Downie of the Flyers." From behind? Into the glass? Canada.com is a major publisher here in Canada. I reponded in Franklin's comments that it wasn't from behind or into the glass. He chose not to publish my comment. Others, including the NHL seem to be claiming the hit was late, yet it occured less than 1 second after McAmmond passed the puck. What happened to two steambolts (2 seconds)?
A couple great lines in this video.
"...starting in June, when the Royals get mathematically eliminated."
...and mail it in, just like the Royals do, every year after the all-star break."
