Sports Bio

Fan of pro teams from Cincinnati, vividly remember the cold bowl against Fouts' Chargers, and hope I live to see some glory soon. Still haven't gotten over the Whale leaving Hartford. Jumped squarely onto the NJ Devils bandwagon at that point, but just love all things hockey.

NHL Third Jerseys for 2018-19: Several teams unveiled new third jerseys for the upcoming NHL season. The Avs tip a cap to the old time Rockies, Flyers go two-tone (no word on the return of the Cooperall pants), the Devils bring back the Green and Red, and at the risk of offering an opinion on a FPP, the 'Canes win.

So...About that Serena Cartoon: It sure feels like this is something that would have been discussed at length a few years back on SpoFi. What does the hive mind here think? Is it racist as hell, a cultural phenomenon, or a bit of both?

NFL Pickem Champion: Truthhurts

Holding the top spot for 2/3 of the season is quite impressive.

But [gestures around at contestants] is it? Is it really?

Kidding aside, well done truthhurts. And another huge thank you to rcade for putting the pick em together.

SportsFilter: The Friday Huddle

With last night's thumping of the Blue Jackets...

So you don't even have to beat an NHL team anymore for the victory to count toward your totals? -EITHER a very uneducated fan or someone taking a shot at the Jackets (screw you, Gaudreau).

I had a kid do that in my beer league a few weeks back. I was forechecking him when he blew a tire; ref's arm went up immediately. The kid went right over to the ref to tell him that he had fallen of his own volition, and that I just happened to be forechecking him at the time. Of course, I had to buy the kid (22) a post-game beer. Class move.

New details about alleged Hockey Canada group sexual assault

Ah, crap, I had forgotten all about this story. I only say "ah, crap" as a Devils fan, because all rumblings indicate that Mikey MacLeod is at or near the center of it.

I do not say "ah crap" for any other reason, nor do I want this story to go away before the young woman gets the justice and closure she deserves, so that she can begin healing. And if a player who happens to play for my favorite team had anything to do with inflicting that kind of pain on a young woman, then fuck him with the rest of them.

That's me! No need to look back at yesterday's huddle--just take my word for it! Saw that one coming a mile away!

Yankees, Aaron Judge Agree To Nine-Year Deal

I think the most shocking part of this contract is how unsurprising it is. Judge was always going to get paid, it was just a matter of by whom. Makes a lot of sense for him to stay put in the biggest market.

But I would expect him to start being more visible in ad campaigns. Am I missing him somehow?
