Good morning Nova Nation! Chris is still “working very hard at real business things” in Vegas, so I’m back in the saddle for day two. Please don’t throw things at the sub, I’m doing my best up here! You all need to settle down! How do I reach these kids!?!?

Can you tell I was up way to late watching a sporting event last night? Truthfully, I’m not the biggest college football fan in the world. I think it’s ridiculous that it’s the only major sport that you can’t win your way into the playoffs, you have to be selected. No chance for human error/manipulation there! But that being said, the sport had a pretty great finish last night. Now just start the game an hour earlier.

But the best part about the college football national championship, is that it marks the beginning of the college basketball season for the not so die hard fans. Forget the fact that we’re already half way through the season, I’m just happy you showed up at all. The fact that Villanova is at the top of the polls when the sport gets a fresh set of eyes is just icing on the cake. NFL fans, we’ll see you in February.

And now, the “news”.
