Sports Bio

Most memorable sports event I've ever attended? Well, I guess the first one I actually have fuzzy memories of is my dad taking me to see the Jets in, hmmm, maybe '76 at the dawn of the Richard Todd-era. Yes, in Shea Stadium, thank you very much.

Teams, in no particular order: Mets, Yankees, Giants, Jets, Devils, Capitals, DC United. I used to follow the Islanders and Les Habitans too, but have fallen off that wagon lately. And I HATE the Rangers!!!!

Bob Murphy passes on to a greater place.: Talk of a true Iron Man...broadcasting games for the Mets since the NL returned to NYC in '62, up through the end of the 2003 season. Quite sad he did not get to enjoy far more of his retirement. I don't think I overstate the case by saying that true baseball fans everywhere will miss him.

F1's most famous privateer passes on.: Rob Walker, probably my favorite Road & Track writer (next to Peter Egan), and the most successful private-entry Formula One owner ever, passed away yesterday. (Better article on also available.) For those of us who follow F1, a great bit of history -- and underdog success -- has now been lost to us.

The drought's over!: USA wins silver & bronze in the 4-man bobsled. Maybe NASCAR is good for something after all.

Fantasy NFL 2004

ooh, I am SO in on this. Of course, with my luck I'll get Kurt Warner and Ricky Williams if I can't make it on draft day...

Toll Gate High Wins Rhode Island High School Hockey Title

Petey, how many of those years were you on the team, 15 or 20? ;-))) LOL. I wish!! I think in that culture, you pretty much have to be in it from when you're like 6-7 years old. Everyone that I knew on the team was in it for at least that long. I moved to that area when I was already 12 years old, so I missed out on a lot of the soccer/swimming/football/baseball thing. Lacrosse was my thing though since that was getting big when I was in high school.

Toll Gate High Wins Rhode Island High School Hockey Title

Not too bad. 'Course my high school won like 40+ straight county boys swimming titles...

Pretty sad because I happened to be going to George Washington (ok, grad school, but it still counts) when Jarvis was here, GW got to the Sweet 16, and Dare was having a pretty big impact to get 'em there. When he decided to go out for the draft, it definitely was too soon though - definitely needed another year or two under his belt. I really hate hearing these stories - I'm about a month away from 35 and, even though I don't have (as far as I know) have any unknown heart abnormalities, these stories of otherwise-healthy 30-year-olds dying really scares the shit out of me.

Mr. Sanders, meet Mr. Douglas. Buster, this is Corrie.

I saw this fight Saturday night. Man, did Sanders kick Wladimir's ass. Personally I'd make the following points: First, Klitschko looked like he went into the ring cold, probably expecting that this would be a total cakewalk. Second, I would bet that this was the first time that Klitschko faced a southpaw. And third, obviously, Klitschko lookes pretty tentative (much like Ruiz last week), whereas Sanders was pretty aggressive. It'll be interesting, to me, to see where Sanders goes after this. There's not many -- if any -- southpaws in the heavyweight mix, and considering some of the power shots he landed on Klitschko, he's an interesting dark horse in the division.

NASCAR Walmart Cup?

Ah, but back when Elliott won the bonus in '85 (then the Winston Million), it was structured differently -- I believe you had to win Daytona, Talladega, and I think the World 600 to get the cash. Sad that I know this, I like Formula 1 much more than NASCAR.

This is a stellar article

I'm surprised that his KIDS didn't break the baseball bat over HIS head.

Personally, I like Deadskunks, since that's the way they play lately...but then I'm a Giants fan, so what do I know?

Well, personally I think the Bengals would be good for at least 4 wins next year, if only based on Lewis' defensive smarts. If I was Marv, I'd be trying to grab as much draft power as possible -- probably the only way that they'll get college players that are half decent.

posted by PeteyStock at 04:43 PM on January 15, 2003

coach the Bengals? Marvin Lewis already got hired for that. Interesting to see how long he lasts there! Any speculation on who gets the job now? Ray Rhodes? Dennis Green?

The FIA has radically changed

Personally I think this A Very Good Thing. Of course, with Prost and Arrows both going under this past year (apparently Arrows is being liquidated as we speak), it seems too little too late, but I think for the long term this may help a lot. I really do wish though that some consideration is brought again to telling engine manufacturers that they must be able to make customer engines widely available (say, enough to supply a factory team plus 2-3 others). I mean, BMW makes engines but only to Williams; why should Jordan and Minardi, for instance, not be able to buy customer engines from BMW? This is why IRL has an advantage thanks to the engine lease policies they have.

Voting results here, btw.

Eddie Murray and Gary Carter

About damn time Carter got in. They don't make 'em like him much anymore. Corpse, agreement here on Sandberg and Trammell. It'll be interesting to see what the voters think of Alomar when he becomes eligible, what with loogies and everything...

SAILING: Louis Vuitton action heats up ... in the wrong way.

Yeesh, that is absolutely ridiculous. I could see the heinous possiblities for something like this in soccer...but YACHTING?!?!? I don't mean for that to besmirch "the beautiful game," but considering the history of soccer hooliganism...
