It's not just for hobbits anymore. The logic of green roofs is becoming more apparent. We can minimize our bills while maximizing the beauty of the urban landscape. And every day it's becoming a little easier to live in a house that just happens to have plants growing on it.

I'm not exactly sure where you all line up with me in terms of age (though I know you're all close), but NHL '94 pretty much defined my freshman year of college. Practically very free moment (including some when I should have been in class) was spent perfecting the one-timer (introduced in this version) against others on my floor. You couldn't walk through the hallway at any time, day or night, without hearing the unmistakable music or bone crushing hits. We were especially fond of pumping the audio through our louder-than-really-necessary stereos. I remember quite a few times being roused from my sleep sometime in the early morning hours and being told "dude, you're up... Roy just beat Soch to take the league lead!" Ahh, the memories.
Anyways, I digress. It turns out someone has done something really cool (to me at least) with the advent of the classic console emulators - they have formed online leagues - one for fans of the SNES version (huh?) and the other for the, obviously superior, Genesis version.
Signups for the fall are on now - not sure how hard it is to get into the league, but just reading about this makes me want to call up all my college buddies and form our own. Most of them are still drinking cases of Bud every weekend on a couch in their mom's basement anyways.
