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 most surprising story of the season has to be Russell Wilson turning the Denver Broncos into a smoking crater while his former and current teammates don't wait for Festivus to air their grievances.

Does anyone remember NFL roster packets from the 1970s that were like this but the cards were landscape orientation and you could put two teams in the sleeves and see the lineups when they played each other?

CFL Pickem Grey Cup Edition

My picks:

Argonauts by 7 (lock)
Grey Cup MVP: McLeod Bethel-Thompson
Top rusher: Brady Oliveira
Top receiver: DaVaris Daniels
Tiebreaker: 48

I'm more shaky about Zach Collaros' ankle than the CFL pundits. But even if he can move on it I'd probably pick the Double Blue.

Can't believe the Cowboys blew that two-touchdown lead in Lambeau. Don't see them turning things around in Minnesota.
