And away we go again with another batch of articles from such exotic locales as Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Athens and....Flagstaff.

By the way, PFN is going on the radio again. I'll be doing a radio hit on 1010 Sports Radio in Tampa Bay, FL today at 4:30 PM AZ time. There's an online stream if you want to take a listen.
