A late entry today after an issue with my cable modem last night caused me to have to take a trip over to my local Comcast office this morning to exchange it.  Have to get to work, but after doing some digging there are plenty of news stories to check out - so here's a quick list.

Yesterday's OTA's were open to the media, and the majority of headlines were discussing Wes Welker's participation with the team on Wednesday.
