Each morning, Monday through Friday, I'll hook you up with reading material to skim through as you slug down coffee and slack off at the start of your workday -- that way I'll have an excuse to do the same at the start of mine.

You said it:
"This is a great sports town and I think people are starved to watch a winner; a team folks feel they can pull for.

I think that was reflected in the size of the viewing crowd around town." -- reader johnthebodiless2000 gives his take on why Baltimore had the best ratings in the U.S. during the Women's World Cup final
