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.

University of Northern Colorado Assistant Coach to Purchase JNCO Jeans in the Future: A Northern Colorado football coach got angry during a game, broke a clipboard, chucked it into the crowd, and apparently hit a fan...because another fan was heckling him over "how small his pants were" So many things to pull from the incident: The coach? Max McCraffrey, offensive coordinator of Northern Colorado and brother of Panthers running back extraordinaire Christian McCaffrey. The object he threw? According to Northern Colorado's AD, it was a souvenir. The taunt that led to the throwing of the broken clipboard? Hey coach, maybe you should focus on how small your pants are, rather than breaking a clipboard. The play that led to the breaking of the clipboard? Panthers running back extraordinaire's other sibling, Dylan McCraffrey and Northern Colorado's QB, threw an interception. At the present, it is still unknown how many times the word "pants" is in the police report of the incident.

So, no one in the Cardinals camp couldn't be arsed to just paint another eye on the bird on their helmet before the game against the Rams?

Local Raleigh kid sang both the Canada and USA anthems before the Vancouver/Hurricanes game on Saturday afternoon. Poor kid forgets the words at the end of O Canada, but the crowd helps her finish. Nice moment that Rod Brind'Amour considered his favorite part of the day.

On the best part of the game: The win. Actually, you know what? Maybe it wasn't the best part, but you know what I really liked? During the national anthem, when the young girl had a little problem with the Canadian national anthem, the whole crowd helped her out and finished it. I was like, That's impressive.' Good job to the people that were here. I don't know if this gets out to them, but that set the tone for the day to me.

I finally got around to watching the final plays of yesterday's 49ers/Cowboys game and I have a question: why was the referee still on the other side of the field when Dak slid the play to its end? Like, if he would at least jogged to keep up with the play, he would've been able to spot the ball a lot earlier. Right?

One thing we're finding out with this weekend's NFL action, if the creature on your helmet is showing only a single eye, you're screwed. Sorry Cardinals, but it's not looking good for you against the Rams. I guess that makes the 49ers/Cowboys and Steelers/Chefs game anyone's, so those should actually be exciting to watch.

Three NFL Coaches Fired: Zimmer, Nagy, Fangio

Looks like Flores is out in Miami. The rumor mill has it that the only reason that the Dolphins fire Flores is because they already have his replacement in mind: Jim Harbaugh.

There's no way that Harbaugh stays in Ann Arbor. I'm sure he has dumptrucks of cash from different NFL teams lined up outside his house right now. I'm so old that I remember when he left the 49ers for a return to the college coaching ranks is because NFL players didn't put up with his BS, unlike college kids who really have no other choice, so he's a better fit for college football.

I knew that I had a good week so the 122 points didn't surprise me too much, but man, that was nothing compared to jagsnumberone's 158 points. That's gotta be a weekly record.
