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?

Maybe the random Twitter folks intended to say that Herbert would play, but completely trip over his dick? Do you think that's what they meant to say?

SportsFilter: The Thursday Huddle

Enjoying the mental picture of Howard and the Beav rocking out at a hip-hop show. In my mind, you fellas look like Don Ameche and Jack Lemmon, but with sagged jeans, oversized Celtics jerseys and Pats snap backs turned sideways.

Margaret Court: Serena Never Admired Me

Would she seriously have said "We were taught to honor our opponent. We respected one another" to a white tennis player?

With the understanding that your question was rhetorical, the answer is a loud "hell no."

And it's funny, you normally hear this form of racism directed at black athletes who are particularly flamboyant or have "too much fun" playing a game for a lot of money. I've always considered Serena to be all business and fairly taciturn in her approach. I know her dad alienated some people at the start of the sisters' careers by [correctly] predicting greatness for them both, but he soon let their playing do the talking. I know she had a high-profile meltdown at the French a few years back, but is generally reserved and respectful to the competition and is well-respected by her peers. So her thinly-veiled racist criticism isn't even particularly based in fact.

Police open investigations into 2003 and 2018 Canadian world junior teams

This story isn't getting much traction here in the States, but it sure seems to be gaining a head of steam in Canada. As a hockey fan, I always want to believe that hockey players are above the fray compared to other athletes when it comes to bullshit like sexual assault. I have no idea why, when the reality is that elite hockey players are no less entitled than elite athletes in other sports.

Also, as a Devils fan, I'm discouraged that Mikey McLeod (beyond being a huge reach in the draft) has been implicated in the 2018 event and has yet to break his silence on the matter. I would hope that he gets sent packing if these allegations can be substantiated, and it sure sounds like they will be.
