NHL Playoff Pickem: Third Round

As usual, my Flames are out and I am out. Also, my picks suck. GL all

I dislike all the teams in the west, so am watching the Lightening-Rangers like it is the Cup final :)

Arizona Coyotes Are Moving to a 5,100-Seat Arena

Having lived between Alberta and Arizona for many years, there is a good collection of snowbirds that make that journey. Though, I cannot imagine many would switch allegiance from their northern childhood team to the Coyotes.

SportsFilter: The Sunday Huddle

Sometimes a team needs a guy on the edge of madness to win a title.
Edge of madness or willing to push team in odd, unexpected directions, which often looks like madness?
Some reason my mind when to the Chicago Bulls, where Rodman definitely filled that roll from 96-98. You could almost say Jordan filled that roll in the 91-93 championships. Not to the extreme of those listed above, but someone who did things the rest of the team did not always agree with. (Last Dance added some great insight into this.)

10 things we learned from F1's 2021 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix

I am a new-ish F1 fan and Sunday's race did not sit well with me. I enjoy the on-trace racing battles and the tire/pit strategy, both of which seemed missing from this race, or at least on the back burner.
I hope the last race is better. I do not have a dog in the fight. My preference, right now, would be someone other than Hamilton or Verstappen wins the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

My college soccer season is over, so I will be back regularly reading and commenting.

I have thought in past about getting a subscription to The Athletic and a twitter ad popped up for 12-months at $1 per month. If anyone is interested, you can see if the link still works.

Otherwise, I have a 30-day Guest Pass to share with 5 friends offer also.

Enjoy all

England Reaches First Final Since 1966

And then said: That's 19 tournaments without a final.

England has not qualified for every World Cup since 1966, missing 74, 78, and 94 in the US.
They also have not qualified for every Euro since 1966, missing 72, 76, 84, and 08.
I think the math then works out.

Three Power 5 schools have never won a national championship in a team sport.
That could change today.

SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

I can't remember which Euro game and am guessing it was Derek Rae, but...
An announcer was talking about some player's off-the-field good deeds and mentioned he had a meeting with a name I did not initially recognize. A second later, I figured he was talking about Barack Obama. I am not sure if he said his last name, it may have been just Barack.
I am still dumbfounded how you could mess that name up. I understand if you have no idea who the man is, but if you are trying to name drop...

Edmonton Ex-Eskimos Unveil New Name

According to Massey Ratings Mascot Search this is the first professional team with the name.
23 high schools use this mascot, including one a few miles from where I use to live and once refereed a basketball game.
