    MSN for email check, then here, depending on what's going on in Pats nation.

    I definitely avoid sports talk websites if we are coming off a terrible week, because the (over)reactions often only serve to depress me.;)

    Sportsline MLB Transactions
    Boston.com Extra Bases Blog
    Boston.com Reiss Blog
    Pro Football Talk
    KFFL NFL News
    Sportsline NFL Transactions

    (I save PatsFans for last, as it takes the longest to surf...)

    Homepage is the BBC sports site, which is rubbish on football (although it does cover it, somewhat surprisingly, with great regularity) but is very good on rugby and cricket.

    After checking how badly England is doing at rugby and cricket I go:

    Patsfans
    Reiss

    and then in no particular order

    Sportsline
    ESPN
    Profootballtalk
    CNNSI
    NFL.com

    Ok, there are times NEM when you truly make me smile, and never more than when your meds kick in and you get into the whole self-depreciation thing! Thanks for my morning laugh!

    First thing in the morning:
    1. trisomy21online.com (Down syndrome message board-for those who don't know my middle son has Ds)
    2. a political forum*
    3. greasecar.com*
    4. mercedesshop.com*
    5. jeepforum.com*
    6. binderbulletin.org (International Light Truck site)*
    7+. a couple of work/industry related sites*
    Finally. Here (except day after a game-then becomes the first stop)
    *No. 2-7 only take about 10 minutes total combined.

    On/Off during the rest of the day:
    1. Here (spend the most time here, even if only reading)
    2. t21 site

    Interesting that no one has fessed up to any porn sites in their top websites! ;)

    Regardless, as far as sports/patriots sites, this is really my first stop - the Patsfans Message board.

    The quality of posters and members here is, in my opinion, a cut above other message boards, and if one has limited time, one can pretty much count on looking at the front message board page, seeing references to any relevant news as well as links in the messages to the stories themselves.

    It's a very nice, helpful and informative service that everyone here provides, and I expect I'm not alone in using it as a resource.

    Hopefully Ian's advertisers recognize this as well.

    At work I go in the same sequence every day:

    1.) boston.com for Reiss (My quickest Pats update)

    2.) profootballtalk.com (My quickest NFL update)

    3.) patsfans.com (My first messageboard visit)

    4.) Go to first total waste of time Department meeting for the day at 7:00am and then go back to my desk and do some actual work.

    After work, at home:

    Same sequence but messageboard time may now extend to hours (or to the limit of wife's patience) and can bounce to Patriots.com to look at latest Pats videos.

    (For those who might not know it yet, when the Patriots moved the "Patriots Video News" stuff to Comcast a lot of people were PO'd but I do know that the Lori Baranski "Patriots News" videos that they replaced PVN with on the Pats website are exactly the same videos that are being shown on the Comcast Patriots Video News. All that happens is that Baranski gives a leadin for Brian Lowe who then narrates the new video same as he always did. The videos are on the Pats website first usually and then the same videos show up on the Comcast site the next day but without the Baranski leadin). So the Patriot's "sell out" of PVN stuff to Comcast was not as horrible as everyone initially thought.
