* Dino Ciccarelli and Cammi Granato—a woman!—were among those elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame yesterday. At least everyone agrees that the committee did a terrible job. [NHL/Toronto Star/Puck Daddy/ESPN]


* Tiger Woods and his lady problem have cost management agency IMG $4.6 million in lost fees. Guess they'll only have four penis-shaped ice sculptures at the Christmas party this year. Feel free to donate to the telethon anyway. [CNBC]

* A New Zealand high school gave breathalyzer tests to the spectators at a recent rugby match against their arch rivals. In other news, New Zealand high school rugby matches no longer have spectators. [NZ Hearld]

* The Wall Street Journal has an interesting look at the Lancaster JetHawks, a minor league team that averages more home runs per season than the rest of their league combined. It might have something to do with the 40 m.p.h. sustained winds that can be found at nearly every single home game. Yeah, pitching for them kind of blows. [WSJ]
