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.

Iowa is not just Caitlin Clark

South Carolina was too much today. It is fitting that a team this good got the largest spotlight in the sport's history. Their 38-0 is going to be remembered.

SportsFilter: The Sunday Huddle

Clay Travis and a bunch of other dopes think Mulkey is doing something new here.

Attacking the media ahead of the publication of a negative story is as old as the printing press. She dodged the Washington Post for two years and now wants to bitch because she got a dozen questions with two days to respond?

Looking forward to her date with accountability.

Kings by 5
Celtics by 8 (slam dunk)
Mavericks by 3

Going with a Mavericks upset over the Thunder even though Okie from Muscogee is still a banger.
