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!

Has anyone read this book yet? Sounds very interesting.

The Booster: How Ed Martin, The Fab Five and the Ballers from the hood Exposed the Hypocrisy of a Billion-Dollar Industry - Carl Martin

"Martin, the son of former Michigan booster Ed Martin, shares his unique perspective on the The Fab Five, one of the most famous and complex groups college basketball has ever seen. The book explores the big business machine of college basketball, the NCAA, exploitation and amateur sports in general.

But it also provides insight into Ed Martin's relationship with the Michigan basketball program that really can't be found anywhere else."

If sports are going to happen and there is contact between players, then a mask or a full face shield has to be utilized. This bubble scenario is nothing but a pipedream so full precautions have to be utilized.

I brought the idea of hockey players using a full face shield helmet like the youngsters use, but I guess the peripheral vision is heavily skewed with those things, making NHL players more vulnerable to getting trucked from the side by a dude they couldn't see coming because of the skewed vision. If that's the case, then they shouldn't be playing the games because you cannot 100% guarantee that the bubble won't be compromised at some point during the season. Same goes for football. Especially football.

I remember someone around here suggesting the name change to the Red Tails, which would be perfect. That name now has support from at least one Washington football player.

That's an apples to oranges comparison. Unless "Canuck" is a racial slur

Apparently his contract max is $7.5 million. That is a complete no-brainer for the Pats as he will be hitting that value in no time at all. Damn, I'm going to miss him not being in a Panthers uni .
