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.

Dodgers Beat Giants in Deciding Game 5

First of all, the call was difficult to make. You are 100 feet away, trying to determine the position of a moving object, and you have only a few milliseconds to do it.

To me, this is the issue. Why should a team's season come down to a decision affected by these variables? Just don't make the call if it's this dang borderline.

Dodgers Beat Giants in Deciding Game 5

Didn't watch the game, so the video is the first that I'm seeing of the swing, and wow, terrible call by the first base ump. That was borderline, at best, and in a situation like that, you gotta give a tiny bit of leeway. What an awful way to have your season end.

Raiders Fire Gruden Over Bigoted Emails

If Gruden wants to coach college ball, there's probably a program that's willing to hire him. Bobby Petrino is still hanging in there, going from job to job.

I don't know. Was Petrino seen as a racist asshole? I don't see players wanting to commit to a Gruden-led program

SportsFilter: The Thursday Huddle

Dodgers and Giants will meet in the MLB playoffs for the first time in the modern era. Seems inconceivable until you remember how nearly impossible it was to make the post season in the MLB until recent times.

SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

Please let this go on and on for the rest of the football season. Anything to distract me from how terrible the Lions are and how the Panthers have lost their best players to injury. But alas, I'm afraid that because winning cures all ills, the Jaguars are going to cease to be a joke. After all, the Coach Meyer just said that from watching game video, he can see a marked improvement with the team's play from week 1 to week 4. He was referring to *game* video, right? ZIIIIING!! /sigh the Lions suck

SportsFilter: The Friday Huddle

So, the Panthers dominate a lowly Houston Texans team last night, but in doing so lose Christian McCaffrey to a hamstring strain and lost this year's eighth overall pick, Jaycee Horn, to multiple broken bones in his right foot.

Pulling the hammy whilst running, I can believe, but broken bones in a foot from running? It looks like he kinda stubs his foot while running weirdly, but that's crazy that he broke bones doing that.

May have to go drown my football sorrows with some spicy fried chicken at lunch today.

NFL Pickem Week 3: Cardiac Cardinals Edition

Well gosh dang it, if only the Packers had weasled just a single point more, I would've had a perfect lock game as well. I blame the Lions.

Thanks to tahoe winning these pick 'ems seemingly so often, I wouldn't be able to pick him out of a lineup unless the cops had everyone turn their backs to us. "Oh yeah, that's him, right there. I've seen that back side in the pick 'ems way too often."

Amazing run there. I think that all 11 defenders got on a hand on him at some time during it.

One question: why do networks cut to the opposing team's QB after a team scores a touchdown? Don't understand it. Never did. Never will.
