Last night I was watching Larry King Live on CNN (King had Bill Maher on and he's always fun to watch discussing politics) and something caught my eye. CNN ran an AP story about UFC 83 (featuring GSP-Serra 2) on the ticker at the bottom of the screen.

Now, my DVR was acting crazy last night and I didn't record the show so I didn't catch the entire text but it was definitely there (as I can confirm because I fast-forwarded and rewinded past that point a half-dozen times as the DVR went nuts on me.)

I don't believe I've ever seen CNN run MMA news on its ticker before. This is yet another indication of MMA's slow but sure progression into mainstream media.

Readers, correct me if I'm wrong on any of the above points...

Also, a football thought. It turns out Eli Manning really is unstoppable. I remember when I saw the first Citizen Eco-Drive commercial featuring Manning back in the fall, I almost doubled over laughing. Well, he proved me wrong the second half of the season and I'm very happy for him. His story is a fantastic one and he deserves all the accolades he's now receiving.
