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.

NFL Pickem Week 3: Pay Dak Prescott Edition

Take a look now, Rumple. There was a problem with duplicate entries being saved for you. I've rerun the week's scoring calculator.

Monday night gets the best game of the week. I feel like Baltimore wants this one more and Opera Man will decide it with a 54-yarder.

NHL Playoff Pickem: Stanley Cup Finals

My picks:

Stars in 7
Top goals: Joe Pavelski
Top goalie (save %): Anton Khudobin
Team winning game 1: Stars
Team giving up 0 goals: Lightning
Top assists: Miro Heiskanen
Conn Smythe: Miro Heiskanen
Tiebreaker: 23

If this was a normal year I'd be getting tickets to at least one of the games in Tampa to see my Dallas Stars. But if it was normal would the Stars be playing this final? Dallas is thriving in the bubble. Never underestimate how hard a team will play to avoid the Texas heat in August and September.

Buckle Up Baby, the widely memed two-year-old Pittsburgh Penguins fan, is still mad for hockey six years later and even played a game during intermission at a Pens game this season.

I didn't see any miscues Sunday because I only watched the Jaguars.

Haven't seen Neymar in a while. I miss his 1080-degree flops when another player's sleeve lightly brushes the hairs on his arm.

The NHL Playoff Pickem is updated with the Dallas Stars' five-game victory over the Vegas Golden Knights to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Geneparmesan leads with 127 over Cixelsyd with 118. Being Dallas homers hasn't helped Ufez and I make a serious challenge to the leaders.

NBA Playoff Pickem: Make Your Conference Finals Picks

I thought that by the conference finals the NBA would stop doing this for competitive fairness reasons. It risks having one conference champion getting significantly more rest time than the other.
