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?

NHL Playoff Pickem: Conference Finals

If we're voting, I see no problem with either of you getting your picks in at 0-0 of the 1st period. But I'm a bit of a jackass, and rcade may have realized that at some point in the last 18 years, so my vote is of limited utility.

NHL Playoff Pickem: Second Round

I like Tahoe's picks to win the remaining game 7's.

Welp, sorry about the Leafs. Thought they had the horsepower to get past the B's, but I didn't expect Mitch Marner to forget to leave the bus for game 7. Kid was all but invisible.

SportsFilter: The Friday Huddle

I need help with that one, Beav. Uranus' moons are named after Shakespearean characters, I know. But my google machine tells me that the new moon has not been named yet.

NFL Playoff Pickem: Conference Championship Round

I missed the deadline. For the record I would have picked the Lions and Ravens, and locked them both. Please keep that in mind as the coveted Costanza is awarded.

Hockey Canada scandal, explained: Five members of 2018 World Juniors team facing charges of sexual assault

I can't believe how little attention this story has gotten in the States. Although the names of the five players have not been released and they have not been formally charged, the following 5 players who were on the 2018 Canadian World Juniors Team have been given indefinite leaves of absence from their respective NHL teams: (1) Carter Hart (PHI); (2) Michael McLeod (NJ); (3) Cal Foote (NJ); (4) Dillon Dube (CAL); (5) Alex Formenton (Swiss league). So even though the London PD has not identified the players, it's clear who is involved, even if the specific capacity of each is not.

This story is disgusting. I'm relying on an article from the Athletic in 2022 for my knowledge. In a nutshell, one player took an extremely intoxicated woman back to the team hotel and had sex with her. When they had finished, seven additional men entered the room and performed various sexual acts on the woman that need not be described in detail. Suffice it to say they were degrading, and the woman felt threatened enough to believe she could not leave. After the alleged sexual assault, she was told to bathe and recorded two separate messages on cell phones - one at 3:30 am and one at 4:40 am - saying that she was then sober and had consented to the sex.

Why do I care? Because I'm a Devils fan and I'm disgusted. I'm disgusted by McCleod, who I get the sense was one of the ring leaders, if not John Doe #1 who brought the inebriated woman back to the hotel and then invited his buddies to join him. I'm disgusted by the Devils organization bringing Cal Foote in this offseason with knowledge of the allegations of his involvement. Most of all I'm disgusted with myself. When the story first broke and I heard that McLeod was likely involved, I wanted him gone NOW. The story then cooled off and I sort of forgot about it. Meanwhile, McLeod has become an extremely important player on the Devils and a guy whose game I really admire. In short, I became a big Mikey McLeod fan. Now it's pretty clear that he's at the center of a horrifying, degrading, sexual assault of a drunk young woman, and I feel like a dumbfuck for forgetting about the allegations. If this all turns out to be true, and I sincerely expect that it is regardless of prosecution, I want McLeod and Foote gone forever.

Pat McAfee: MLK Day Reminds Me I Was Cancelled

Man, I really liked McAfee when he first started making guest appearances on the old Deadspin - maybe 10 years ago. He would usually sub in for a Drew Magary column and would add some quality content. I remember him as being pretty outspoken in a positive and insightful way. Like Aaron Rogers and many others (looking at you, Joe Rogan), he meandered too far down the bro science path and began believing a lot of the red pill bullshit that leads the simple-minded to get caught up in the science-denying, YouTube "researching" wave.
