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.

Fantasy Premier League Week 2: Everybody Grab Erling Edition: The Fantasy Premier League week 2 deadline is early morning Saturday. Over 1 million players picked up Erling Haaland after his two-goal performance against West Ham in week 1, with 800,000 likely dropping Harry Kane to afford the move. I couldn't abandon you, Harry.

CFL Pickem Week 10: Gentille Alouette Edition: The CFL returns Thursday night with the undefeated Winnipeg Blue Bombers hosting the two-win Montreal Alouettes. They're going to pluck them like a lark. The CFL Pickem is led again by me, 3 over Cixelsyd and five over Scooby10672. Picking the Argos was enough to make the difference. Make your picks.

CFL Pickem Week 9: Big Tim is Watching You Edition: Week 9 of the CFL season begins Thursday night with Winnipeg at Montreal. In our pickem I have disturbing news that has just come in: Cixelsyd has overtaken me for first place on the strength of not locking Toronto over Ottawa. Make your picks and watch this weekend's CFL as closely as Tim Hortons watches its customers.

Vin Scully, Forever the Voice of the Dodgers, Dies: Vin Scully, who died Tuesday at age 94, had a career as a baseball announcer for which the term legendary hardly does justice. He joined the Dodgers broadcast booth in 1950 when they were still in Brooklyn and stepped away from the mic 67 seasons later. Not bad for a kid from The Bronx who grew up rooting for the Dodgers' cross-town rival New York Giants. "It may sound corny,” Sandy Koufax once said, “but I enjoyed listening to Vin call a game almost more than playing in them.”

As I watch CFL games I often return to a question I'm too far continentally south to answer: Is Tim Hortons coffee any good?

Dallas Cowboys Worth More Than Any Team on Earth

Jones is bad at producing a champion but he's exceptionally good at making money. And the NFL has barely begun to capitalize on legal sports betting.

When Jones bought the team I thought he was small time. I didn't see him turning the Cowboys into this much money even as the team continues a quarter century away from the Super Bowl.

CFL Pickem Week 8: 10,000 Rushing Yards Edition

I went to change it and it wouldn't let me, so I just wrote an "oh well" in the comments

If the software isn't letting you make a change, post a comment here. As long as the gametime hasn't begun, I'll make the change manually.

I haven't encountered the code not letting a pick be made. They should be open until the stated time on the pickem form.

Rogers, can you confirm my point total from last week is correct, please?

Fixed. Your point total increased from 20 to 30 without the blown lock.

The Toronto/Saskatchewan game Sunday was fun. Next time I have the opportunity to watch a game in full it'll be accompanied by some Canadian beer.

LIV Golfer Invites Sky Sports Reporter to Self-Fornicate

I know pro golfers are hard up for money -- the poor millionaires -- but playing 54 holes with no cut is just lame. Feels more like an exhibition than an actual competitor to the PGA Tour.

I hope to see as little of these golfers as possible.
