3. Last Word: Groundhog Day's Long Shadow, Minority Percentage & The Value of Sports -

After the January into February weekend we had with its outbreak of spring fever, you might wonder if groundhogs are allowed to change their minds or if shadows that are the result of television lights count as a prediction on the winter’s length.
Or maybe it would be appropriate to have a weather map that includes the Groundhog Day immunity zones – areas where the long shadow of the groundhog does not venture.
Note to television meteorologists: This would in no way interfere with your right to declare large parts of your viewing areas as places of "potentially severe weather" far into the future. But you will need a different color for the Groundhog Immunity Zones.

4. Sports Community to Memphis: Acknowledge Our Value -

In sports, it is natural for some – maybe even many – to say what a player, coach, team or even a city can’t do. Memphis knows this well.

There were doubts about the viability of a Downtown minor-league baseball park. But 16 years after AutoZone Park opened at Third Street and Union Avenue, the ballpark is as beautiful as ever – thanks in part to some $6.5 million in upgrades following the team’s purchase by the parent St. Louis Cardinals.

5. Memphis Sports Leaders to Speak on Local Impact -

6. Last Word: The Big Fizzle, John Jay Hooker's Exit And "A Great Sports Town" -

Everybody talks about the weather but nobody does anything about it – isn’t that how the saying goes?
In our case, it might be better to say everybody talks about the television weather coverage but nobody does anything about it.
As we all know now, Memphis dodged the “blizzard” warning artfully and passive-aggressively teased by several television stations who shall go un-named here because they know who they are and you do too.
That’s because they spent much of the day of "the blizzard that wasn’t" whining about the reaction from viewers who complained about the hype and then the promos the stations ran the day of the big fizzle.
We didn’t get much in the way of snow in Memphis, but we got a couple of feet of hype.

7. The Week Ahead: Jan. 25, 2016 -

11. Last Word: Council Round-Up, One Beale's Third Tower and the Battle Over the ASD -

On a clear day, the song goes, you can see forever.
In Memphis though, it seems that no two politicians will see exactly the same thing or have precisely the same opinion.
On a somewhat sunny but not necessarily clear Tuesday in our fair city there was a lot to see.

12. Sports Execs Tackle Teams’ Economic Impact -

Football fans in Charlotte, N.C., have had a fun season watching the NFL’s Carolina Panthers reel in 15 wins, a near perfect season, and secure the top playoff seed in their conference.

And it could turn out to be quite the edge for the Panthers in their quest to reach the Super Bowl.

13. City Hall Shuffle Moves Into Christmas Eve With 8 Positions Cut -

Memphis-Mayor elect Jim Strickland announced on Christmas Eve that he will eliminate eight positions in the current administration, one of them vacant. And a ninth positon will become a part-time position.

14. Birmingham Offers More Than Bowl Game -

University of Memphis football fans will head to Birmingham, Ala., next week to celebrate a bowl game appearance that could see the team finish with 10 wins for a second straight season.

It’s been a historical run, and the Birmingham Bowl appearance will give the Tigers a rare chance to play against Auburn University. The game’s 11 a.m. kickoff makes it a plausible day trip, but then Birmingham has plenty to offer anyone thinking of spending a night or two.

47. Fairgrounds’ Future -

It’s hard to imagine that a 65,000-seat stadium could be overlooked.

The word is pronounced like the animal oxen, but Woolfolk – an Internet marketing strategist with Rocketfuel – decided to drop the ‘E.’ The result: a more search-friendly name for his shop Oxn and the completion of one of many steps on the road to opening behind Central BBQ in the South Main neighborhood, possibly by the end of this month.
