* A reader emails: "Ironic Tiger ads may be played out at this point, but I was in hawaii last week and saw this in the bathroom in a bar in oahu, pretty damn funny."

* As Canada concedes that they will not "own the podium" this year, Martin Brodeur is benched in favor of Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo. No pressure, buddy. [USA Today]
