A few quick Friday evening items

  • New all-access broadband portal for UW athletics --
    For the cost of one season pass at $79.95, or a monthly pass of $9.95, fans can sign-in to see exclusive video content as well as listen online to their favorite Badger team. Live audio streams will include all home and away football, men’s basketball, women’s basketball, and men’s hockey games, and all the coaches radio shows with Bret Bielema, Bo Ryan, and Mike Eaves. These audio streams were formerly available online through a subscription on Yahoo!
    Wasn't there an announcement a while back that one of the Madison radio stations was going to stream the Badger Men's games for free?

    If not, it sure stinks to pay $9.95/mo for all sports when I could get hockey on yahoo for $4.95/mo. I have no interest in listening to football or basketball games.
  • Gotta love the title of Illegal Curve's "Afternoon Delight" post today -- Stepan Out -- as well as rusty's brief comment (in italics) on one of our favorite Badgers:
    A couple of real S’s from INCH, including Shane Sims and Derek Stepan. I saw Stepan a few times while he was a high schooler, and he never failed to impress.
