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.

Basebrawl Includes Actual Punches in Mariners-Angels: There was a barn burner of a brawl today in the Mariners-Angels game. Jesse Winker of the Marines was hit by a pitch, didn't like what he was hearing from the Angels bench and dove into the team throwing punches.

Iroquois Nationals No More

I didn't know Iroquois was derogatory and thought it was a cool sounding word. Haudenosaunee is pretty good on that front too. Glad they're using the name change to educate the public.

Basebrawl Includes Actual Punches in Mariners-Angels

Archie Bradley is described as "Heavily bearded Bradley" by an unnamed AP reporter in the linked story. Is this intended to suggest that the beard was so weighty it threw off his balance?

Basebrawl Includes Actual Punches in Mariners-Angels

My favorite part of a basebrawl is when the old veterans pick a dance partner on the other team and hold each other so neither one has to fight.

No kidding. I'd throw a few haymakers myself unless one of you held me back.

One of the three 0-2 teams is going to win this week so I'm hoping it is Hamilton.

SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

I am losing faith in the Celtics. They should be the better team but somehow the Warriors always have an answer for them. Even Curry missing all his threes wasn't enough last night.

Apologies for sending out two broken emails about the final round of the NHL pickem before the correct email. I need to improve that code.
