It took several days of angst and confusion, but the Islanders announced Wednesday that fans with tickets to Saturday night's blizzard game could exchange them for another game.

You can follow the saga as it unfolded on Chris Botta's blog here.

My old college hoops beat confrere Dick (Hoops) Weiss breaks down the new power in Ivy League basketball here. When I was a student at said Ivy League basketball power they would schedule basketball games for 6 in hopes people on the way to the 8 o'clock hockey game would stop by.

If it weren't for the fact this blog has a strict policy against boring fantasy league stories, I'd tell you that when Elias changed a Kurt Warner TD pass to an Anquan Boldin TD run Wednesday, I went from a 3-point semifinal loss to my brother-in-law to a 1-point semifinal victory. As an agnostic, I continue seek evidence of a higher power. This helps.
