Good morning everyone. Looking over today's links, the one that jumped out for me was the news that former San Francisco 49er Charles Haley made it to the finalist stage in the Hall of Fame voting. That's great, and it's good to see, but the big issue is this: it's his sixth-consecutive year. It's absolutely ridiculous that Haley hasn't made it into the Hall of Fame just yet.
If he does make it, I'll be happy for him, happy for the system and happy in general, but it's still insulting that he hasn't made it in. Then again, I do find a lot of the things around the actual selection process of the various Hall of Fames in sports to be kind of crummy and counter-intuitive. Whatever the case, I'll be rooting for Haley, as usual.
Super late Golden Nuggets today, so we're going to jump right into your links. Enjoy, ya'll.
