We are a little shaken up by the fact that Stu's Hunt Down on Brent Novoselsky was only revealed to us AFTER we referenced the obscure Vikings tight end in an earlier post today. Stu was already working on The Hunt Down at the time. So two men independently thought of Brent Novoselksy today. "Layers upon layers," as Stu noted. By the way, the accompanying picture is of Nirvana bass player Krist Novoselic, whom we always get confused with Brent Novoselsky. Stu?

. I don’t, but I do remember that game because they broke into it to let the audience know that Billy Martin had died
Programming note, by the way: We'll have a morning post tomorrow, but we're taking the rest of the day off for a big North Dakota getaway. Plan your final Friday in July accordingly.
