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.

Al Kaline, Detroit Tigers legend, dies at age 85: Even though I grew up many hours north of Detroit, our town's Little League teams would make an annual pilgrimage down south to see a Tigers game. I remember one of my brothers catching an Al Kaline foul ball. He eventually got it autographed when some of the Tigers players/ex-players made it up our way for an autographing session one winter.

Rest In Power, Mr. Tiger.

Everything to know about the Korea Baseball Organization, which hopes to start season by early May: If there is good news for seamheads, it's that another league will attempt to resume play over the coming weeks. The Korea Baseball Organization, described in the past as delivering the "wildest, most outlandish" version of the sport, is hoping to kick off its season in late April or early May.

Oh please, oh please, some sporting network here in the USA pick this up. I need my baseball, any baseball!

Matt Patricia is gone, and so is the GM who ran Jim Caldwell out of town to give Patricia the job.

I have a feeling that Coach Bieniemy would rather opt for his senior year in KC than leave early for Detroit. Remember when Jerry Richardson had his bizarre Al Davis like press conference and, like, a day later, Andrew Luck was all "nah, I'll stay at Stanford for my senior year."?

How 'bout that gutsy backup QB making his Oregon State debut?

Matt Patricia is gone, and so is the GM who ran Jim Caldwell out of town to give Patricia the job.

And this was the very moment that both of them lost their job.

The end of last night's Oregon/Oregon State game was a real nailbiter.

From today's Athletic:

[The Lions] are now 13-28-1 under Patricia, the 27th-best record in the league during that span. The Lions were 36-28 under predecessor Jim Caldwell, the 12th-best mark from 2014-17.

I think today may have been the last straw no matter how things shake out on Thursday. Should never have hired that dude in the first place. How much of that tire and car money will get thrown at Jim Harbaugh in a month from now?

Well, the Lions getting shut out by a team without their two best players seems to be keeping the natural order of the NFL in line, so I'm all good. /sigh Why did the Lions fire Jim Caldwell again?

I blame Bill Laimbeer for Jordan's decisions. He wants his own Laimbeer so badly that he is compelled to keep trying them. Adam Morrison, Frank the Tank Kaminsky, and now Hayward.

As for the money, the only way that a market like Charlotte is going to attract a name player is to overspend, and this franchise needs a name player. There is just no excitement for the Hornets right now outside of the Uptown area of Charlotte. Hell, not the NBA gives a shit about them. Do an internet search for 'where do the Hornets play?' and see that the first return is this page.

After drafting Ball and overpaying for Hayward, I have to admit that I am intrigued enough to watch their games now.

Looks like Gordon Hayward will be spending all of his restaurant time at Mert's in Charlotte for the next couple of years.
