While I patiently wait for Brett Favre to finish his decades-long plan to humiliate Dan Marino and then collapse into a pile of dust (which will then be packaged in microgram reliquaries for the Green Bay faithful), here are some sports links.
Alyssa Milano has a baseball blog. Yes, it's really her. I'm about a Koufax One, unlike certain readers here -- you know who you are, and it's not just Noel -- but wow. She's really into baseball.
La Loca pointed me to the recent New York Times Magazine article on expertise, myelin, and Russian sports training for kids. In return, I gave her a link to a Los Angeles Times article on plyometrics and the bizarre subculture of teaching yuppies to dunk a basketball. I'm going to add another about the Polgr sisters and chess.
And since both the Psychology Today article and the NYT Magazine article mention Ericsson's research at Florida State, I'm throwing in a link to a Cambridge handbook he co-edited and to a partial CV, for my own future reference.
