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.

MLB reclassifies Negro Leagues as major league: MLB said Wednesday that it was "correcting a longtime oversight in the game's history" by elevating the Negro Leagues on the centennial of their founding. The Negro Leagues consisted of seven leagues, and MLB will include records from those circuits between 1920 and 1948. The Undefeated's Clinton Yates, isn't so thrilled with this plan.

Shattered ankle, two fractures in his legs with one of them being compound. Another report saying that both fractures were compound with one in each leg. Man, for his sake, I really hope that he went into a deep state of shock to not feel those breaks.

Jeff Bezos Looking at Buying Washington Football Team

OK beavy, you got me convinced. Did you hear the recent story of the Lions petitioning the league to move over to the NFC East? It got rejected on the joint statement of the East teams' owners: "Even *we* have standards!"

Jeff Bezos Looking at Buying Washington Football Team

The latest valuation of this particular team is ~$3.5 billion. That's chump change to Bezos. Why doesn't he just offer up $5 billion in couch cushion change and be done with it?

A sports radio guy's hot take right now, probably:

I can't believe that Tebow just up and quit on his team like that. After all of the resources that the Mets spent on his development and this is how he repays them? Just quits?! And how many legitimate prospects did he replace in all that time? The Mets could be serious World Series contenders right now if it weren't for Tim Tebow just showing up and posing for the cameras!
