Note: Things might get dicey around PurpleReign land for the next few days - I have two major projects cooking at my "other" job [the computer company that pays many of the bills] and may not update the sports news as quickly as I'd like. Please bear with me - we're all doing better than my two clients who had fires in their offices recently and now need new computer systems.
