ESPN’s Craig Custance enlisted the help of 14 elite NHLers who came to the conclusion that Sidney Crosby (who else?) is the player best suited to build a franchise around.
Crosby received four of the 14 first-place ballots and finished with 19 points –11 more than the runner-up, Jonathan Toews.
Tuukka Rask led all goaltenders while Carey Price and Henrik Lundqvist also received first-place votes along with forwards John Tavares, Ryan Getzlaf, Nathan MacKinnon and Claude Giroux (who voted for himself).
As for Crosby, he didn’t fill out a full ballot, but did tab Jamie Benn as the ideal cornerstone for his franchise. —
Even better than Giroux voting for himself was his second-place pick: Sidney Crosby!

Northern Lights May Ignite in Mid-Atlantic, Central US Skies: Where to See Rare Show
Stargazers could be in for a rare display Sept. 12 as an Earth-directed solar flare ignites the northern lights, also known as the aurora borealis, in the United States. As a result of the flare’s direction and strength, the dazzling light display could reach as far south as Maryland in the east and down to Kansas farther west.

The last few updates of Tumblr Mobile (Android) have seen the app become so slow it isn’t actually usable. To get new/additional posts to load, I had to resort to trickery (going in and out of notifications brought back the “loading” bar at least) and a few games of mahjong to give it enough time to load.
Trying to post or reblog has been ridiculous. After hitting the “Post” button, I’d get a little message that Tumblr Mobile couldn’t upload my post but would try again later. Strangely, the post was already visible on my laptop and if I didn’t take extreme action on my tablet (clearing the app data and settings, then forcing the app to stop), Tumblr Mobile would upload the post over and over and over while continuing to claim it couldn’t upload and would try again later…
Today I uninstalled Tumblr Mobile (the version released 3 Sept 2014), downloaded an apk from June 2014 (via Android Drawer), and installed the old apk. 1000% Tumblr Mobile experience improvement! (aka “Tumblr Mobile actually works again”)
Be better, Tumblr Mobile. Be better.
