Sports Bio

I follow the teams from Dallas-Fort Worth because I grew up with them, but I've adopted the Jacksonville Jaguars, the only pro team my new hometown is ever likely to get. The most memorable sporting event I attended live was game 6 of the NBA Western Conference finals in 1988 at Reunion Arena -- Mavericks vs. Lakers -- when Mark Aguirre and his prodigious caboose received half the game MVP award, and the 17,007 fans in attendance received the other half. I also follow U.S. Soccer, Sheffield Wednesday and Orlando City SC because members of this site dragged me into the beautiful game for the first time since the Dallas Tornado folded.

Gregg Berhalter Fired After USMNT Copa Flop: Just two years before the United States is one of the hosts of the 2026 World Cup, the U.S. Men's National Team has invited Gregg Berhalter to succeed elsewhere. Despite a favorable group the U.S. did not make the knockout round as the Copa America host, making U.S. hopes for a quarterfinal or better finish in 2026 look bleak. Berhalter had a record of 44-17-13 and one long-ago domestic violence investigation.

CFL Pickem Week 6: Salute to Percy: The undefeated Montreal Alouettes host the 2-2 Toronto Argonauts tonight at Percival Molson Memorial Field. Percival Molson was a star athlete who won the 1897 Stanley Cup with the Montreal Victorias, set a long jump world record in 1900, was a four-sport athlete at McGill University and played football for the Montreal AAA Winged Wheelers in a predecessor to the CFL. After he died in World War I in France at age 36, Molson's will left $75,000 to complete the stadium. In our pickem, Ic23b has a 39-point lead over Jagsnumberone. Make your picks and if you drink, consider a Molson Golden. Percival's great-granddad founded the brewery.

NBA Playoff Pickem Champion: ic23b: The SportsFilter NBA Playoff Pickem champion is i23cb, who finished 23 points over Howard_T. Ic23b picked the Celtics to win game 1 and the series, Luka Doncic to score the most points per game and P.J. Washington to get the most fouls. Kudos! My fellow deflated Mavs fan Ufez Jones claims the coveted Costanza.

My picks:

Elks by 3

Going out on a limb for the Elks, who would have been singularly successful as the Elk.

Molson Golden was my beer in college. Now I drink IPAs and the occasional kettle sour. Lock 'em all!

Kyle Filipowski Drafted By Utah Jazz After His Brother Says He Was Groomed By Mormon Culture

I am not finding the idea of a 20-year-old dating a 27-year-old weird or suspicious. They began dating when he was 18.

Same for him cutting off his family. If my brother and mom kept calling my girlfriend a "groomer" I'd be pissed at them too.

CFL Pickem Week 4: Montreal is Rolling

My picks:

Lions by 10 (lock)
Argonauts by 3
Blue Bombers by 3
Redblacks by 7

Kristina Costabile is the only expert on CFL.ca picking the Argonauts to beat the Alouettes. Make that two experts: I'm going with the big offense over the big defense and some revenge for Toronto. I also like Winnipeg to finally get a W and Zach Collaros to get his first touchdown pass of 2024.

The greatest quarterback in New Orleans Breakers history comes back up north to play against the team he led to a 2022 Grey Cup victory. McLeod Bethel-Thompson will return home with the warm regards of the Toronto fans and the cold taste of defeat. Hamilton and Saskatchewan get an immediate rematch and the same outcome.

Giants Legend Willie Mays Dies at 93

Does anyone have memories of seeing Mays as a player at his games? My baseball memories begin in 1974 when the Texas Rangers had an infield of Mike Hargrove-Dave Nelson-Toby Harrah-Lenny Randle and Jeff Burroughs became the MVP. So I knew Mays as one of the greats of the game but never got to see him except in past highlights.

SportsFilter: The Friday Huddle

He's worth it because that's the going rate for your forever quarterback and will look like a discount soon enough.

Lawrence isn't a generational quarterback like Peyton Manning, but he's a really good one. I think he could have a career like Philip Rivers, though I hope he doesn't have the same lack of Super Bowls to show for it.

Lots of Grousing About Refs as Celtics Take 3-0 Finals Lead

The swim move Jaylen Brown put on Luka Doncic in the first half of game 1 should be hung in the Louvre.

I'm pretty sure Al Horford was playing when I was a Celtics fan in the 1970s because Dallas had no team. John Havlicek used to kick it out to him in the corner for those pointlessly long twos.
