What's in a Name? Part 2

This is a sequel to a recent post. If your name is Manning, you will have won the Super Bowl the last two years. We covered Peyton on this blog almost exactly a year ago. His brother, Eli, orchestrated the New York Giants' upset of the undefeated New England Patriots in last weekend's Super Bowl, 17-14. Tom wins! Coach Coughlin - NOT Tom Brady, who was sacked five times and hurried a dozen more by a bruising defense.

Beyond the Boards is a blog written by the Buffalo Sabres Website Manager, Brian Wheeler. He joined the Sabres prior to the 2003-04 season and has a recent post here about his early days on the job.
It's a funny read with a great punchline - pun intended:)

Another Brian Wheeler enters his tenth season as the radio play-by-play voice of the NBA's Portland Trail Blazers. Here is a recent article he wrote: In Honor of Brandon Roy, 7 Reasons Why the Trail Blazers Will Make the Playoffs. Derek Roy of the Sabres will be leading us into the playoffs it seems. He has 12 points in seven games since returning on January 18 from a shoulder injury. Tonight the Sabres beat Boston, 4-2, to move within 4 points of the Bruins and the eighth and final playoff spot. We meet them again Friday while tomorrow sees the Sabres at home against New Jersey (tied for fifth) - our first home game after seven straight on the road.
