A couple of things to pass along before the (long) weekend ...

The International Workshop on Modern Sports in Asia: Cultural Perspectives invites research submissions. The workshop will be help April 29-30 at the Asia Research Institute in Singapore. The deadline for submission is February 22. For more information you can go here or contact Dr. Younghan Cho of the Asia Research Institute,

Also, the following comes from Katherine Lavelle at Northern Iowa--

I'm looking to put together a panel on fallen sports figures in the media for this November's NCA. I would like to focus on the past couple of months (Tiger, Mark McGwire, some of the collegiate coaches like Leech who were forced out). I am writing a paper about Gilbert Arenas. If you would like to submit a 75 word abstract to me by February 5th if you are interested, I would be happy to put together the rationale. Please email all abstracts to:
