If you're like me, you've got a Terry Pegula hangover from overindulging on Pegula yesterday. But, much like an actual hangover, it was worth it at the time. If you haven't overdosed on Pegula yet, then you will, because we have so many Pegula links today that I dare you to read all of them. You know what, I double dare you! Don't make me double dog dare you - more after the break.

The New Era - Between the Pegs
A blog entry from Terry Pegula's daughter Jessie. I linked this solely because it's a really interesting look into the mind of a teenager whose father just bought a professional sports team, but I'm slightly uncomfortable linking to the blog of, well, a teenager whose father just bought a professional sports team. If you're going to interact with Jessie or other members of her family online, please read this helpful link from Amanda at 2:00 For Rouging. If too many people are uncomfortable with linking to the young Pegula girl's blog then it won't happen again - feel free to voice your opinion in the comments or an email.
