Sports Bio

Current sports and entertainment memorablia/card shop owner and former sportswriter and freelance broadcaster still deeply and passionately in love with the Cardinals, Blues and the memory of $1 Pizza Pizza! days at the old Tiger Stadium.

Things I dig:
Joe Randa
taking third on a fly ball to right field
cut blocking
any and all jerseys (especially gamers)
my Wahoo McDaniel rookie card
putting the final word in a solid column

Things I diggeth not:
Any team associated with Chicago or New York
Sports Night
tennis racquets the size of Rhode Island
greens the speed of Kojak's head
Joe Morgan
Getting beat to a good post on SpoFi

I'm the proud father of a new ... blog! Why the hell not -- every else has one, and at least I know the difference between "your" and "you're". Visit me at From Hoosier To Hoser. Thanks!

The most amazing bowling story you'll ever read: Bill Fong is tied as the 15th-best competitive league bowler in Plano, Texas. One night in January two years ago, he almost achieved immortality. And then again, maybe he achieved it anyway.

Hmmm, how did Dan Bylsma get such a rocket start?

*checks notes*

hmm hmm Crosby ... hmm hmm Malkin ... hmm hmm Fleury

Not often a rookie coach gets to lead that kind of talent. Always heard nice things about him, though.

That's one of my very favourite trick plays, although I also love the Fumblerooski (played with Dean Steinkuhler's cousin, Fat Freddy) and the Rams' punt misdirection.

I was so glad when the Cards game ended. I just couldn't handle the suspense at the end.

And I don't know why, but the Dodgers going down in flames makes me ridiculously happy.

SportsFilter: The Saturday Huddle

I have recently become hooked on the videos of Jon Bois, who does "Chart Party" for SBNation on YouTube. I love these deep-dive, make-a-mountain-out-of-a-molehill takes. The linked video searches for the saddest punt of the 21st century. I think it succeeds.
