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.

Arizona Coyotes Are Moving to a 5,100-Seat Arena: The Arizona Coyotes are moving next season to a not-yet-finished arena at Arizona State University that will seat 5,100 fans. During the three years it will be there, the team will compensate by charging fans much higher prices. The team hopes to get an arena deal in Tempe after Glendale commissioned a study that found the arena would generate more economic benefit if NHL hockey wasn't played there.

Greg Norman: LIV and Let LIV

Mickelson and Norman have really done a great job of making their new league the loveable upstart.

It is quite a feat to have their enormous career incomes and still want to sell their principles to the Saudis.

Arizona Coyotes Are Moving to a 5,100-Seat Arena

I don't understand why the NHL values a team here so much. Atlanta only got 12 years before losing its team. Arizona has been around for 26 and is still a mess.

I have fixed the Stars/Flames series and player picks.

When you always pick the Stars you don't care who their opponent is.

Go Stars!

NBA Playoff Pickem: Conference Semifinals Edition

Going by the metric, anyone picking any of the top three scorers (Jokic, Butler, or Tatum) or top three rebounders (Valancunias, Giannis, or Jokic/Gobert [tied for third]) should get the five bonus points, no?

Oops. I thought it was top 1. It's now fixed.

Ufez: The current standings for me are correct. I only hit on the 130-points prop.

NBA Playoff Pickem: Conference Semifinals Edition

Just now saw that Boston vs Milwaukee game had already started. I didn't know that before my pick. Your Call.

The deadline to pick Celtics/Bucks and Warriors/Grizzlies isn't until Tuesday, so it's OK to factor game 1 into your thinking before you pick.

My picks won't post, can I email you screenshots?

I had the wrong deadline time on the Submit button. It's fixed now.

On any contest, if someone can't submit picks due to a bug, feel free to email them to me as a screenshot or text.

Jonas Valanciunas pulling down 14 boards a game wasn't what I expected in round 1. It didn't hurt that the Lithuanian Lightning got 25 in game one against the Suns.

I was in the car all day Saturday helping my son move out of a dorm, so I couldn't start this round with at least 24 hours' notice.

Bucks/Celtics and Warriors/Grizzlies can be picked until the game twos on Tuesday.

Star-Crossed Nets Bounced from Playoffs in Four Games

If a star player is throwing their weight around all the time I'd rather have them admit they are co-managing the franchise than to scapegoat the owner and GM when things go badly.

So kudos for that, at least.

I wonder how many stars will decide it's more fun to not manage their franchises.
