Staccato 5/26/2013

-More conference realignment! The Elon Phoenix are headed to the CAA; rumors, currently unfounded, had Albany headed there as well, which would've put a dent in the conferences of both my alma mater and my employer.
-The next two Super Bowls on the table have been awarded. Super Bowl L will be headed to the brand new Levi's Stadium in San(ta Clara) Francisco, while LI will be in Houston.
-PAAWWWLL Finebaum, the longtime Birmingham radio host with his microphone on the passionate pulse of SEC and especially state of Alabama football, is headed to the SEC Network. It makes perfect sense, actually.
-The Troopers have new uniforms. And by new, I mean old.
-Everett Golson is gone from Notre Dame. This should worry Irish faithful, but as EDSBS' Spencer Hall put it:

As a USF alum, I have not-so-fond memories of losing to said ficus.
-And finally, yours truly will head to Buffalo Wild Wings tomorrow afternoon for the men's lacrosse championship game. While Syracuse may be college lacrosse's evil empire, the team on the other sideline is Duke so... Go Orange. Apparently someone was watching the women's championship from B-Dubs, as it took UNC three overtimes to best the Terrapins.

Finally, because it's Memorial Day weekend, two quick notes:
-Chances are good that on this and some of this summer's other patriotic holidays, you'll want to display a flag. If you do so, please do it properly.
-Certainly thank a veteran or an active duty serviceperson tomorrow and every day. But remember, Memorial Day is to honor those who gave the "last full measure of devotion" and died in service to this country.
