    Don't feed into this

    Way to try to make a quick buck off of SportsCenter's flavor of the day. It should be illegal to do this.

    Compilation of pretty good news stories

    This "book" was a quickly assembled grouping of what feels like a bunch of independent news article. They each had some value but an integrated well- edited book this is not. It was thrown together to get a slice the Lin pie.
