Here is a random collection of late afternoon reading material:
First, my column on Mark Sanchez' shoulder.
Second, USA Today's Mike McCarthy with a clarification from ESPN's Jeannine Edwards: Ron Franklin called her "Sweet Baby," not "Sweet Cakes."
Third, a farewell column from long-time Washington Post scribe Len Shapiro, Syosset High Class of '64, who among many other duties handled the sports media beat with flair and wisdom.
Fourth, an excellent look at the PSL market after Year One of NMS by John Brennan.
Fifth, the warmth-delayed, prime-time version of the Winter Classic averaged 4.5 million viewers, the most for a regular-season NHL game since a Flyers-Rangers tilt in '75.
