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.

Eagles Trade Carson Wentz to Colts: Quarterback roulette continues in the NFL. The Philadelphia Eagles traded Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts for a 2021 third-round pick and 2022 conditional second-rounder that could become a first. The condition is whether Wentz plays at least 75 percent of the team's snaps (70 percent if Indy makes the playoffs). It'll be interesting to see how much time Wentz holds a clipboard instead of a football during games that aren't too close.

Tiger Woods suffers multiple leg injuries in single-car accident in Los Angeles

During CNN's late-night wall-to-wall coverage of this accident, John Berman and Bob Costas were trading gushing praise when Berman said Tiger's philandering scandal helped his standing with fans because it made him human.

Did it, though?

It wasn't relatable when a dozen women accused him of hooking up with them. The details of the affairs were cringe-inducing. I think the cavalcade of embarrassment estranged him from fans and only in recent years did his image recover from that.

Jeff Bezos Looking at Buying Washington Football Team

Jerry Jones isn't a front-office nightmare any more. But he's not particularly good either. He's had the Cowboys slightly above mediocrity for years, and every three years they're a preseason Super Bowl favorite. Which is something I guess.

Ruby appears to be a good dog. We got a kitten named Cryptid a month ago who comes running whenever I crack open a can of Jai Alai IPA.
