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.

The NFL Network is counterprogramming the Bengals/Bills game with last year's 49ers/Cowboys wild card game. What fan would choose that?

As I watch this Eagles-Giants blowout, I'm appreciating that the Jaguars had only two losses this season by more than one score. They almost always kept things interesting in the fourth quarter.

Past seasons in Jacksonville not so much.

NFL Playoff Pickem Week 2: Divisional Round

Hey rcade, it looks like the individual stat winners aren't tallying properly; everyone shows the winning choices and not their own picks/points from last week.

I think I fixed all the things I broke last night. The scores were always accurate. I just botched the presentation.

I watched it and I still can't believe it. There's no way a quarterback can play that badly and that well in separate halves of the same game. Trevor Lawrence might be a Jedi.
