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.

USA Shocks Pakistan in T20 World Cup: The magnitude of Thursday’s victory cannot be understated. Cricket is far from a mainstream sport in the US, while Pakistan possesses significant cricketing pedigree. As expected, this loss is not going down well with the proud cricket fans of Pakistan. I'm sure that everyone's favorite disappointed Pakistani cricket fan is feeling exactly how he did back in 2019.

Also, that Draisaitl elbow to Barkov's head should have ol' Leon sitting for a few games, but since this is the NHL, he'll probably just get an "attaboy" from the Department of Player Safety.

How much begging, pleading, and bribing is NBC doing with the women's basketball selection committee right now?

Never in a million years would I see this Edmonton team get limited to 7 paltry shots on goal through two periods of play.

I gotta be honest, I'm not very wild about any of them except for maybe the soccer sounding name of Utah HC. I would've gone with the Utah Parks in honor of all of their national parks. Or something to do with bees or beehives.

On the other hand, Florida has a very heavy forecheck that is ready to pin that Edmonton D corps down. I don't know. I keep swinging between the teams. Maybe default to the world class goalie vs the one that is not?

And speaking of the NBA, I can't believe that we have to wait almost a full week to the start of the Finals.

Vancouver is further away, but since you added climate as a variable, then yes, Edmonton and Miami are the most different in that respect.

MLB incorporates Negro Leagues statistics

I'm hearing some minor bitching from some folks about this move, saying, "those Negro Leaguers may have been good, but they never played against no MLB players!" Well friend, the MLB players never had to play against the likes of Josh Gibson, Cool Papa Bell, Buck Leonard, or Satchel Paige (in his prime).

Barring two historic collapses, it looks like we may be headed for a SpoFi civil war with the NBA.
