Sports Bio

My favorite teams are the Cubs, Tigers, Lions, Panthers, Hurricanes, Sri Lanka, and Kings XI Punjab.
My most memorable sporting event that I attended was Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals in 2006 when the Hurricanes won it all. I will never forget a second of that game.

Iroquois Nationals No More: The Iroquois Nationals Men’s Lacrosse Team, known as the Iroquois Nationals, represents the Iroquois Confederacy in international field lacrosse competition.

...as our people have begun to revitalize our languages and culture, we felt it was time to change our name to what we collectively call ourselves: "Haudenosaunee" (ho-dee-no-show-nee) which translates to "People of the Longhouse." This name change is one of a series of actions we are taking as our people continue to regain what has been lost through colonialism.

SportsFilter: The Friday Huddle

At 11 years old, Olivia Moultrie was given a soccer scholarship by the University of North Carolina to play there after when she reached eligibility and then ditched that a few years later to sign an endorsement deal with Nike and turn pro. At 15 years old, Moultrie successfully sued the National Women's Soccer League over their eligibility rule (no one under 18) and then joined the Portland Thorns. Her first game was at 15 years old and then just the other night, at 16 years old, became the youngest player to score a goal in the NWSL. The kids are alright.

Meanwhile, my 12 year old is getting good at avoiding outdoor air, playing Roblox, playing Ginchen Impact, and watching Roblox Youtubers on her iPad.

I have to admit, the hat that should be included in the Blog of Unnecessary Quotation Marks is really making my day.

Just to let everyone know, I sold my house and bet all of the net profits on the hockey team that has a blue circle in its primary logo. If this bet fails, my family and I will be on the streets, selling essay papers to random sports fans on the internet. Wish me luck!

Reminds me of the naming conventions in Book of the Long Sun. Men get animal/animal product names, women get plant names (usually a flower), and androids get stone/metal names.

The Stanley Cup finals are set to be played by a team without an "s" in their name. That's gotta be a first

Commanders Fine Jack Del Rio $100,000 for Calling January 6 a 'Dust-Up'

Fine him and make him watch every single second of the hearings.

I had a very hard time watching the videos and officer Caroline Edwards' testimony before the committee. Bike racks. She had to hold onto two bike racks at the same time in attempt to hold those violent fascists back. Anyone that thinks the events of 1/6 was just a "dust up" and purports to "back the blue" needs to watch that segment from last night. Harrowing.
