Alexa Rank 59,754

I just noticed the Alexa website ranking for talk-sports.net jumped 30k to 59,754. Quite a jump. I was really surprised. Turns out that Alexa changed the way they do the rankings to better reflect real user surfing behavior.

Way Off The Mark

TSN's Off The Record show is the worst sports talk show ever. I'll watch pretty much anything sports all-day, but TSN has turned sports into an Oprah-like talk show. I have to taste my own vomit when I accidently watch it for 5 seconds. Who the hell watches that crap?

The NHL Cover Up?

As Talk-Sports has grown rapidly over the last few months, more and more links were being posted by NHL fans on the NHL fan forum websites. Today, I noticed that many of the links were deleted. It appears that many NHL fan forums run by the league are now removing all links to Talk-Sports.net.

Update: A moderator provided a reason why he was deleting the links; they violated their terms as my website had foul language. I reviewed their terms and couldn't find anything about linking to sites that had foul language. I responded to the moderator and also mentioned that the language on my site is no different than other forums on google.com and yahoo.com. Their response was to delete all the posts on this subject, including their own. Wow! They are spooked.

Bryan Murray is an Idiot

So, Ottawa GM Bryan Murray thinks the hit by Mark Bell on Daniel Alfredsson was dirty. Last year, he laughed at the thought that the exact same hit by Chris Neil on Chris Drury was not. Watch these two exactly similar hits. When it happens to his team, it's clean, but when it's against his team, it's dirty.

Ranking Continue to Drop

Talk-Sports.net Alexa ranks continue to drop. World-wide week rank is now 77,229. Canada is 8,533 and U.S. 20,804. I expect the U.S. ranking to drop below 20,000 in the next few days.

Buiness Cards

I ordered some business card today. I created them online at Business Depot and ordered 250 for $20. I'm stupid not to have done this before.
