Sports Bio

Most memorable sporting event was when my 11 year old daughter won the state championships in gymnastics (level 6).

Can't get enough of the University of Hawai'i. "June would throw."

Lookin' for a reason to root for DA Raiders!!!

Steelers Take Down Colts

I'm not sure, I could be wrong, but it seems that Coach Dungy has trouble with the BIG games. Can't recall him winning the BIG games even at T.B. That missed field goal was a TERRIBLE miss. Waaaaaaaay right. Very uncharacteristic for a home field kicker to miss one that badly. Don't understand why Edgerrin wasn't involved more in the last few minutes, even as a safety valve. With the Steelers sending bodies, Edge would've had a lot of real estate before first contact. Manning could've moved the pocket to give himself more options, especially with a couple of time outs left. Can't blame it on the O-line, should've known that the Steelers would play aggressive; that's how they play. So many things contributed to that implosion in the final 2 minutes, but let's not forget that Indy was losing to a team that knows how to bring it in the post season.

Doctor: Palmer knee injury 'potentially career-ending'

It was pretty badly damaged -- shredded is the better term Worst damn thing I heard all season, next to Coach Dungy's loss. Gotta feel for Carson, his family, his teammates, the fans. Hope he finds the strength to rehab. In the fantasy league I played in this season, I chose Palmer as the MVP (over Alexander) because he was taking Cincy to a new level. I believe that next season the AFC North Division will be the toughest division to play in. Three teams from that division will see the post season (sorry Ravens). It would be great to see the Bengals continue to challenge Pittsburgh for dominance (don't take Cleveland lightly though). Cincy will not be able to accomplish this without Palmer. Rudy J might give the Bengals ball control, Carson gives the Bengals BALLS (big cast-iron balls!!!).

Hall of Fame Finalists

Those years when John Madden coached the Raiders were the reasons I'm a Raiders fan. It was bombs away everyday! Madden used to coach all the rejects that never fit on other teams (Alzado, Toomay, Matuzak), and party animals like Ken Stabler. Only Madden could start a wide receiver, covered with "stick 'em", who ran routes that took all day, and drank a bottle of Maalox before every game (Fred Biletnikoff, Superbowl MVP). Those were some fun games in those Madden years. Would be tough to be on the panel that decides who goes in - there are many deserving finalists. Reggie White (no brainer) Harry Carson (senior vote) Art Monk (iron-man vote) Derrick Thomas (sorry to say, but Derrick gets the sympathy vote,) Troy Aikman (I got the rings vote)

Iverson ... Greatest little man ever?

The thing about giving someone - anyone - the monicker of "greatest" usually brings on some baaaaad Karma. A.I. is truly an acceptional athlete. Hope he doesn't end up an also-ran like Stockton did after giving all he had for the game. Here's a question: What one or two players would A.I. need on his team to win the hardware? Sorry, 'nother thread, 'nother time.

Lendale White leaving USC

Lendale has absolutely nothing more to prove at the collegiate level other than the completion of his studies. With his awesome play during the post season, his football stock has risen tremendiously. He has to take advantage of that. Hopefully, some role model with appeal to him to make sure he completes his studies (at his own pace/time if need be) and secure a degree. It will be THAT degree that makes him a role model to his own children, if he fathers any. Good luck Lendale, don't forget where you came from.

The top ten Dennis Rodman moments

He may not appear to be, but Dennis Rodman is actually quite clever. He got some rings, marketed himself quite well (even if much of it was negative publicity), became a household name, and he made a lot of money. He might come off as some kind of lunatic with narcissistic tendencies, but he's made more money than I think I ever will - not that money is the goal of my life. Many of us try to find ways and schemes to gain some extra cash, Rodman found a way for himself. I really loved watching Rodman in the young years, when he had absolutely no expectations from the game. He played it the way it was meant to be played - with fun and enthusiasum. Does success change everything? You betcha!!!

Where does your misery rank?

1) Having to witness the borderline, unsportsmanlike conduct of these modern-day prima donnas who put the "me" in team, knowing that no professional sport is immune from these a-holes. And then listening to the "poor me" justifications that permeates from the gaps between their ears. 2) Finally acquiring those long-awaited season tickets in the loges right on the fifty, and the only win the team could manage is the right to draft first.

Marcus Vick's downward spiral continues...

Even with all the physical attributes Vick and Clarrett possess, they both found it necessary to brandish weapons. There's something very methodical and premeditated about that. Smacks of something deep and sinister. Not the "bullying" kind of crime, more like the "malicious intent" kind of crime. Can't even think that playing football would be a goal for either of these two wayward sons (but I know it is). Priority should be learning how to make positive contributions to society once again. Take note moms and dads . . . these are our children, we need to try and love them the way we love our other sons - the Vince Youngs and the Reggie Bush's. It's truly a sad thing to hear this kind of news regarding such young people.

NFL 2006 Pick-Em Playoffs SportsFilter Lounge Day 2

When a person looks at the stat sheet then gets a feeling and . . . ah, feelings aren't facts. I concede the argument. I can't wait till the players take the field. Denver's gonna put on a good show.

NFL 2006 Pick-Em Playoffs SportsFilter Lounge Day 2

I'm trying to leave that game where Denver beat New England out of the argument. However, in the conference: Denver 10-2 New England 7-5 Not trying to take anything away from the champs, but time marches on . . .

NFL 2006 Pick-Em Playoffs SportsFilter Lounge Day 2

Running Backs = Push Kicking = Push No way. Check your stat sheet again. Elam is tied for the NFL record with a 60 yarder. Got ten kicks from outside the 40, including a 50 yarder. . . the guy has distance - Mile High adds another 5-10 yards. Denver's runningback tandem is good for almost 2000 yards. Corey Dillion and ANYBODY else (lets take Patrick Pass) is good for LESS THAN 1000 yards. Now, they're going into a house that only allows 85 rush yards so the pass is gonna be the key where Brady definitely has an edge over Plummer. By the way doesn't Shanahan own a few rings himself? That may make the coaching edge a push also. Um, Dr. John, LLB, you guys getting all of this "empty rhetoric"?

NFL 2006 Pick-Em Playoffs SportsFilter Lounge Day 2

gotta some up with some tangible arguments Denver's got the one of the best legs in the league with Elam. Plummer's havin' one of his best seaons ever with an offense that's designed for a QB to "manage" and not gamble. Running tandem is solid enough to have almost both backs in the thousand yard club. Defense line stops the run pretty well. Mike Shanahan's a damn good coach in his own right. Home field advantage throws in the emotional edge. Want more?
