Training camps have been cancelled, the preseason has been cancelled, The Mindy Project may be cancelled. Head for the hills!

Before we hit the links, we're happy to announce that Mitch (http://twitter.com/Mitch_SBMedia) will be joining us as the new morning links guy. Following in the big steps of the Stanchion (who works for something called a "newspaper") and Jordan from last season, he'll make sure you don't miss any of the big news of the day plus whatever else he wants to share. Also relevant: he still hates Mark Messier. We're happy to give him a home.

On to what's new in the world.
