Every Friday I’ll post links to things I found interesting. It’s a new idea I call a “Link Dump.” Guaranteed you’ll find thousands of blogs start to do the same thing in the coming weeks and months. Just remember where you saw this idea first.

Brian Billick: Former Ravens Coach Tackles NFL Economics By Jeffrey A. Trachtenberg, Wall Stree Journal – Current Fox football analyst, Brian Billick, does an interview with the WSJ about the blah, blah, blah… But seriously, how pumped are you for football season? Thank God the media circus called, “The Trade Deadline” is over. Training Camp is in session and it’s time for some touchdowns, fumbles and “Jacked Up!” segments!

What Are Practice Jerseys Really Worth? By Darren Rovell, CNBC – I love the idea of teams selling their practice jerseys for advertising revenue. I think it’s a great idea. But teams of the four majors, I implore you, please don’t sell game jerseys. Please?

Baseball’s magic number: 100 By Tim Kurkjian – From the guy that has brought you some of my least favorite segments on ESPN comes an article about something Red Sox fans knew back in 2002. Way to write a timely piece.
