Sports Bio

From my name you can tell I'm a diehard Jaguars fan. Original season ticket holder, even though, I no longer live in Jacksonville. Also, life long Reds fan. I, also, follow the Dayton Flyers, Georgia Bulldogs, and the New York Islanders (various reasons for each, and good stories which we'll save for another time).

Greg Norman: LIV and Let LIV

When I first read this, I thought, man that must have been taken out of context. The more and more I look at it, I can't figure out how it could have been, as there is no context that would make his statement appropriate.

I didn't see where I could pick the Islanders to win it all. Oh that's right, nevermind/lol. Guess I won't be watching every second of a series then (Just wait until next year, LGI!!!)

Sunday is my better half's birthday. So, I am fixing a Chuck Roast dinner, with red potatoes and carrots, homemade biscuits, fresh strawberries, a homemade pound cake, and a nice bottle of Cabernet (for her, not me on the wine). I'll be drinking some St. Bernardus ABT 12 and Christmas Ale, that I've been saving since Christmas, when it looked like Cincy might be able to do something in the playoffs this year. We've been invited to a bunch of parties (living just north of Cincy), but not this year with her birthday falling on the same day. Instead, we'll eat around 5:30 then settle in to watch the game together. Who Dey. (Yes, I'm a diehard Jaguars fan, having lived there when the franchise came into existence, but I grew up in Bengal territory and live here now. I cheer for them whenever they aren't playing the Jags/lol).

David Ortiz First Ballot Hall of Famer

I think what Clemens and Bonds did is far worse than what Rose did as far as for the Hall of Fame. Hear me out on this. First, I know because he is banned from MLB, Rose is not eligible, therefore, can not be voted on. But what Rose did, was after his playing career. If he had chosen another profession, say, TV analyst, instead, he would be in the Hall of Fame right now. He would be going in as a player, not as a manager. His exclusion has nothing to do with his playing career. But Bonds and Clemens, on the other hand, were still players during their transgressions. Both would have been Hall of Famers without their use of steroids. They were two of the best to ever play, before they made a deal with the devil. But, they couldn't help themselves in their strive towards being known as the best. They cheated. Plain and simple. Doesn't matter how many others were cheating. If you get a multiple speeding tickets, you're not getting a safe driving discount from your insurance provider, regardless, if everyone else is speeding. You're still speeding. And they cheated. I played Division 1 baseball and was drafted in the June 84 amateur draft, what Bonds, Clemens, and the like did to my beloved game pisses me off beyond any comprehension. Yes, there's the argument that cheating (spitballs, greenies, sign stealing, pine tar, etc) have always been a part of America's pasttime, but this goes way, way past that. They ruined the record books. They ruined the game for many years. They ruined the image of baseball. They did not "save" baseball. If they ever get into the Hall of Fame, I would consider never watching another game. It's that big of a deal to me. And don't get me started on Bud Selig and his turning a blind eye. Sorry, for the rant, but this is something that hits me and many of my friends, personally.

NFL Playoff Pickem Round 2: Hand the Ref the Ball Edition

My picks:

Bengals by 3
Packers by 7 (lock)
Buccaneers by 4
Bills by 3
Passer: Josh Allen
Rusher: Jones (Green Bay)
Receiver: Chase (Bengals)
Player with interception: Douglas (Green Bay)

It's not a prop, but my "bold" prediction this week is that Henry gains less than 100 yards (He'll be effective just not over 100). I think he splits carries first off, and the time off (and coming off injury) will keep him from being 100 percent. Plus, I think the gals try to make Tannehill beat them by stacking the box. He might end up with something like 18 carries for 80 yards but it won't be 32 carries for 217 yards type of day. Just my two cents which isn't worth a nickel, so there's that. lol
