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?

SportsFilter: The Friday Huddle

This Bengal fan is very impressed by Burrow so far. Gotta speed up a few of those reads a bit (having a proper line would help, too), but he sure seems to make the right choice most of the time, and executes once he has made his decision.

NFL Pickem Week 2: Chiefs Are Still Good Edition

My picks:

Bears by 3
Cowboys by 6
Packers by 17
Titans by 9 (lock)
Vikings by 13 (lock)

Eagles by 4
Steelers by 7

Missed last night's game (for which I would have scored 0 points). Alas. Just going to keep riding that "lock against the Jags" wave--it's been very effective so far.

Over Two Minutes of MLB Players Cursing in Empty Stadiums

These players cocksuckers need to watch Deadwood.

Fernando Tatis Jr.'s grand slam draws ire of manager Jayce Tingler, Texas Rangers

Anything that gets these players beefing with each other is entertaining

I kinda hate the "unwritten rules"--but I can get behind this take.

Yeah. Just yanking your chain when I saw the score. I can totally appreciate his priorities in heading out; family has to trump everything, even the playoffs. I'm glad to see the Bruins stood behind his decision so graciously.

I gotta give MacEwan some respect on that hit, too. He got smoked, but it was a clean hit and he knew it. You can see that he looked up at the hitter and acknowledged it--kind of a "good hit" nod with a little smirk. He might have even said something, as Beaulieu says something that looks like a response to him.

Damn I love hockey.

Deadspin have had a noticeable decline in content quality as those venues sold out to other media companies

That's kind of the point--when Deadspin went corporate and the vulture capital overlords demanded that they stick to sports, they jumped ship en masse. The decline was a function of all writers leaving, rather than just the sell-out.

To me, Deadspin's writing staff is a known and appreciated commodity that has been sorely missed since they shut it down. I'm excited for the new project.

For those of us who won't get past the Globe and Mail paywall: Climate Pledge Arena.

Sounds like a hell of a concept. I hope they pull it off with flying colors!

Explosive and shocking allegations against junior hockey in newly filed lawsuit

What the fuck? I mean, there's hazing--picking on the young kids in a almost good-natured way. In and of itself, it's a stupid, but not necessarily damaging, thing. I think I mentioned before, when I played varsity hockey as a freshman, the 3 freshmen on the team were expected to supply the seniors with tape. A low-grade form of bullying, to be sure, but I'm by no means scarred from it.

This is so far beyond the pale that I don't even know how to respond.

No idea what compelled me to read this story, but...damn. I missed this one completely back in '10. I remember Christy Martin when she was relevant, but I had no idea this was what happened to her.

Joey freakin' Votto going yard with this column

Votto is one of the few things that has made it less embarrassing to be a Reds fan for several years now. This is no exception.

Holden--without clicking on your hyperlink (which I'm about to do), I vividly recall boasts of a "paradigm shift" coming from those revolutionary training techniques.

Now to check my answers...

[on edit] Hot damn, that's the good shit! Send that madness straight into my veins!
