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.

Will a 'Super League' blow up global soccer? Here's what we know after bombshell announcement: The games would be played on weekday nights, essentially replacing the current Champions League, and allowing clubs to remain in their domestic leagues — the Premier League, Serie A, etc. But that, for several reasons, seems unfeasible. Commentary with some inside info.

NBA Pickem Week 20: Pittsburgh Pisces Edition

I saw it when it came out as well. The Mancelona Theater, they let anyone into any movie that they showed regardless of age. As a young lad, I saw Barbarella, Death Race 2000, The Fish that Saved Pittsburgh, Grizzly, The Rabbit Test, and many other movies that a 10, 11, 12 year kid shouldn't see without a parent; or at all.

Orioles Pitcher Retires 27 Batters But It Isn't a Perfect Game

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Means is the first pitcher to throw a non-perfect no-hitter with no walks, hit batters or errors.

Which is crazy to think that this is the first time since the game has been played at this level for well over a hundred years

Whatever you do, don't go to KFC. They done changed the recipe.

But apparently not in Canada? From what I've read, the Colonel sold his empire in the US but kept the rights for the rest of the world, so none of them changed their recipe. It's what I've read in one article, though, so who knows if that is the real story.

It was a good day insofar as that is concerned. However, all is not well in the Old North State. We are experiencing, nay, suffering through a calamity of chicken supreme tenders shortage! Is it time to panic yet?

Aaron Rodgers Wants Out of Green Bay

Pick a team that will most certainly earn a top 10 draft pick next year and more than a good QB away from having a lower draft pick and deal Aaron to them for picks

If you do the Twitter thing, do yourself a favor and follow Super 70s Sports. Here's a nice taste of their feed. I will note that they sometimes veer into toxic masculinity with some of their posts, but most of their feed is just funny shit like this.

LOL I did! But in the form of a hot shower. I should probably get a biscuit from Bojangles tomorrow morning just in case

So, the only real side effects that I experienced today was an onset of a dull headache and stiffness/soreness. I eventually took a few Advil and a looong hot shower and I was then right as rain.
