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!

DEVO is an art rock band from Akron, OH that started out in the early 1970s and is still an ongoing project. They relied heavily on humorous social satire, electronic instruments like synths and electronic drums, and were a huge influence on all new wave and alternative rock bands that came after them. They scored some minor hits in the late 1970s and early 1980s and even reaching the top 10(?) on the charts with a song named Whip It. That song's video was played night and day on MTV.

The name is short for de-evolution which is a concept that says that we human beings have reached the apex of our social evolutionary process and we have begun the process of social de-evolution. The murders of several Kent State students by the National Guard served to put an exclamation point on that concept for the band.

It was eight years ago today that DEVO threw out the first pitch at a Tampa : Bay Rays game. That was the moment that the universe peaked.

So, their game plan is to dare the other team to win? "We ain't doing anything. The field's all yours. WE DARE YOU TO WIN!" And the other team just melts under the power of that heat?

How?! Haven't they released 75% of their team? How did they win today's game? And don't get me started on the stupid Lions.
