Gimme a "T"

Apart from weekends in which Brett Favre's Packers embarrass the Bears *cough Rex Grossman cough* in Chicago , the first weekend of the playoffs is my favorite of the year. All those wildcard games are good for the soul.

With four matchups in the offing, I was impressed by this post at the Cognitive Daily about how testosterone levels may account for virtually all of the home-field advantage typically enjoyed by sports teams. The study on which the post is based uses English Premier League players, whom we know are all crumpet-eating pansies, but still - when playing at home against a rival, the players were absolutely juiced on testosterone.
