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.

Florida Fires Dan Mullen: Dan Mullen is out as head coach of the Florida Gators after losing 9 of his final 15 games. He was set to begin another five-year deal at the beginning of 2022 -- a deal reached this year -- but will instead have only the solace of a $12 million buyout. Florida lost to Missouri in overtime Saturday 24-23 after getting the ball at their 29 with 1:04 seconds left in a tie game and making no attempt to get into field goal position, keeping it on the ground in a 3-and-out.

NBA Pickem Week 5: Happy Birthday Bol Bol Edition: There are six national NBA games this week spanning Tuesday to Friday. Tonight Golden State plays Brooklyn and Philadelphia plays Utah on TNT. Our contest has a new leader who is too modest to name himself but spectacularly won the week with 39 points. Make your picks and put on your shoes more quickly.

NFL Pickem Week 10: That Wasn't Taunting Edition: Week 10 of the NFL season kicks off Thursday night with the Baltimore Ravens vacationing at the Miami Dolphins. Our contest continues to be led by the sagacious Tahoemoj but I have managed to pull to 30 back. We collectively scored -95 on the Bills/Jaguars game with the steadfast Jagsnumberone as the only one in the win column. Make your picks and feel free to trash talk the opposition for all the NFL players who can't.

SportsFilter: The Saturday Huddle

UTSA is the first ranked opponent to come to Denton since Tulsa in 1982.

It will of course be a resounding Mean Green victory. I am so confident I might not even watch or check the score afterward.

NFL Pickem Week 11: Cam Newton is Back Edition

RCade I had the titans by three they won by 2, isnt that an 8 point victory?

The formula is winning margin times 0.3 rounded down, so a game has to be won by at least 4 to award points for close guesses.

Picking the Jaguars to lose to the Niners without locking it feels like progress in Jacksonville.

I will be double-checking after work to make sure the Lions-Steelers tie is scored correctly. I think it's supposed to be 0 points for everybody who didn't lock a winner, which would be a -10 deduction.

The Craziest Sports Story of 2021 Is FC Sheriff

This is incredible and at times a bit disturbing. I kept waiting to be told it was another Sid Finch tale.

I may need to brush up on my intensive Spanish tutelage from college in 1991 so I can watch El Chiringuito, a soccer TV show from Spain that's described as "telenovela-style."
