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?

Babe Ruth's Letter to Mistress Auctioned for $200K

I really appreciate where this thread went. I also am embarrassed for laughing so hard at "can of corn"

Peyton Manning Will Host Revival of 1950s Game Show

Howard, we shared a minor (although my course of study probably involved inhaling much more marijuana smoke than yours).

I think Peyton can be low-key charming when placed in the right situation. A 90% scripted show where he can riff with college students much smarter than himself for the other 10% just might work. I wish him luck.

NHL Dumps Referee After Open-Mic Admission of Bias

Man, I'd sure love to hear the real reason he wanted to get a penalty called on Nashville early. I can think of a ton of possible reasons ranging from shady as hell (e.g. wanting to get Detroit an early PPG to change the tone of the game) to pretty innocuous (e.g. wanted to send a message that he would call a tight game).

That said, Dude! You're on a hot mic! Maybe it's best to keep ypour thought process internal.

Drew Brees Retires from NFL

Bad non-call, but there's been similar that have resulted in teams winning the Superbowl.

And without that bad call, we would have been deprived of the single most boring Super Bowl in the history of the game...possibly the most boring football game ever played outside of the Ivy Leagues at the turn of the last century. Who wants to watch Brees, Thomas, and Kamara when you can watch...[I can't name a Ram].

NHL, ESPN reach seven-year U.S. broadcast deal

At the gym this morning ... looks like ESPN is already reinforcing its commitment to the NHL. On SportsCenter they actually bumped up their NHL coverage from 27 seconds to 34! I mean, it was wedged in between 6 minutes of analysis of what Luka Doncic had for lunch last Thursday and an interview with Jerry Jones' housekeeper's nephew. But still...

Yep. Tends to add a smidgen of credibility to the crackpots' who accuse the NFL of being as scripted as pro rasslin'.

NFL Playoff Pickem: Super Bowl 0x37 Edition

I'd like to correct my score please. I should have received -10 points for my atrocious performance last round. If you give me a break by just calling it a zero, I'll never learn anything.

Philip Rivers Retires After 17 Seasons

I like to think it's karmic payoff for drafting Ryan Leaf.

Bengals fan here. Karma still owes us a fuckton for David Klingler and Akili Smith. Are you saying that Burrow is the real deal, and we are due for a line of success?

New Mets GM Fired for Sending Dick Pic to Reporter

My phone and I agree on one thing: we would much rather be sent a photo of a penis than Grayson Allen.

Sir, I'll implore you not to sully the good name of Dick Grayson, aka Robin, aka Boy Wonder, aka Nightwing, defender of justice and paragon of virtue by conflating him with Grayson Allen, scourge of Tobacco Road and serial elbower and flopper.

New Mets GM Fired for Sending Dick Pic to Reporter

Man, I just will never understand the "dick pic" phenomenon. I was a crotchety old Gen-Xer when I went back to law school at 38. The things my female millennial friends would show me on their phones were mind blowing. The story was always the same--they'd go out for a couple drinks, meet a seemingly nice guy, chat for a while, maybe dance for a couple of songs. He'd ask for their number, and they'd oblige with the expectation of being asked out on a future date. They'd start getting dick pics soon thereafter - sometimes in the cab on the way home. The dick pic would sometimes be a precursor to an invitation to go out, almost like the dude was offering it up as "full disclosure of who you'd be dating."

Of course, now that I'm 50 and a partner at a high-profile law firm, I do get a kick out of texting dick pics to my wife. Usually I send her a pic of Nixon or Chaney, but sometimes I throw in a Van Dyke or Grayson.
