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.

NFL Pickem Week 3: Jaguar Juggernaut Edition: The NFL begins week 3 tonight with the Pittsburgh Steelers visiting the Cleveland Browns.

Keep it on the front page: Brett Favre is a creep

I changed the link to a different Beast story.

I can't believe the media isn't giving this wall-to-wall coverage.

SportsFilter: The Thursday Huddle

Amazon has a medical consultant the broadcast team can talk to about an injury like the one Tua suffered. Al Michaels cited him in discussing the disturbing hand and arm rigidity called fencing response.

The postgame show also devoted a long time -- perhaps 10 minutes -- to the issue of Tua's possible concussion last weekend and the question of whether he should have been playing Thursday.

I wasn't expecting that and assume the NFL will ensure that never happens again as part of a game broadcast.

Jimmy Kimmel Was Once Banned from Monday Night Football

Revisiting my comments on Howard Cosell from that 2007 thread, I'm struck by the contrast between an MNF broadcast team that played up animosity and disagreement -- Cosell and Don Meredith -- with today's team of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, whose on-air bromance has lasted 20 years.

We've reached the point in the CFL season when I have no idea how teams are playing because the NFL, fantasy football, survivor and DFS have consumed my every waking minute.

Daniel Jones is good enough to win but he has no receivers. And that Sterling Shepard injury last night looked like a season ender.

Taylor Twellman said in the post game of today's USMNT match against Japan that it was the final game on ESPN for the team, ending a 30-year run on ESPN/ABC. The USWNT has a few more this year but it's leaving the network as well.

Bryson DeChambeau's eyeball had an unpleasant encounter with a gallery rope at the latest LIV exhibition.

Another angle.
