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.

College football officials considering these rule changes to shorten games, limit 'exposures' for athletes: A convergence of issues has compelled the game's stakeholders to consider more seriously limiting "exposures," the number of plays per game that athletes are on the field. The intent is not necessarily to shorten game lengths but rather protect players' health.

I want to say that it's going to be South Carolina vs the field, but I don't know. There's quite a few really strong teams out there this year.

A local perspective of South Carolina's chances this year.

Would You Bet on a WWE Match?

You can bet on the Oscars in some places and those results are known before the event as well. Rasslin, however, does provide for lots of real prop bet opportunities during any given match. Like, how many top ropes, people's elbows, if the ref will get knocked out, etc.

Great Britain's uniform in the World Baseball Classic is a real classic. They really just should've grabbed the cricket team's test unis for this.

Report: Bears Trading No. 1 Pick to Panthers

Never ever forget that of all of the QBs to come out of Ohio State is Tom Tupa, the punter.

Ugh, unfinished sentence. Make that:

Never ever forget that of all of the QBs to come out of Ohio State, Tom Tupa found the most success in the NFL, as a punter.

Report: Bears Trading No. 1 Pick to Panthers

Oh, and who the heck is this new QB going to throw to in Charlotte? Fitterer traded their, by far, best wide receiver as a part of that package.

Report: Bears Trading No. 1 Pick to Panthers

If the Panthers do not guess correctly on the right, franchise changing player for that first overall, the Bears are going to get some very high draft picks next year. GM Ryan Poles did a great job in getting GM Scott Fitterer to make a desperation move like this. Obviously, Fitterer has a guy in mind to pick with that #1 spot. Who could it be? My guess is that it's CJ Stroud. Never ever forget that of all of the QBs to come out of Ohio State is Tom Tupa, the punter.

Looks like T-Mobile is bringing back their free offer this year. That means that if you are a T-Mobile customer, you will have all the free baseball (black out rules apply, of course) and MLS soccer this year. Looks like it may be time to switch.
