The Best of the Rest is my effort to summarize all the travel/miles & points stories that interested me on a daily basis but didn’t have time to write about in length. Culled from over 100 blogs/authors I follow, some are passed along without comment, while I add my analysis to others. This is your shortcut to find out what’s going on in the travel world without having to read dozens of travel blogs to get all the best info.
Sports Illustrated dedicates a part of each issue to what they call “Breakout Perfomers”, athletes and sports personalities that were “Hot” or “Not” in the preceding week. This week, they cited an NBA point guard named Jeremy Lin and his impending move to the Los Angeles Lakers by chronicling his past few years in the league: New York to LA with a two-year layover in Houston. Sounds like your typical United itinerary.
