Sports Bio

Brazilian soccername: Binhosa

Fan of:
- Liverpool FC
- USC Trojans (class of '83, except I had no class while in attendance)
- Original SJ Earthquakes, RIP
- Barcelona FC
- SJ Sharks
- 49ers
- NY Giants

Baseball seriously sucks, it's boring, they could shut down MLB tomorrow and I'd be happy especially since the channel that broadcasts the SF Giants games is a Fox affiliate and their games regularly screw up my viewing schedule.

I won the 2005 NFL Playoff Pool

If you watch enough Man Fire Food, you'll learn there is nothing wrong with Carolina 'que. And also be very, very hungry.

Chicago White Sox Hire Tony La Russa as Manager

My question is why at his age does La Russa want to manage again. Especially all the travel involved in MLB.

I was watching a lot of Australian rules footy the last few months -- cheers to Richmond for taking the trophy -- and am amazed more teams don't bring over kickers. Given how well the kick with players holding or running into them I'd think they could place kicks just about anywhere needed.

I know we try to stay away from politics here but this story is about basic human decency, and the lack thereof.

American leagues just do it wrong. They should all adopt the global football model, including promotion and relegation and changing the playoffs to a cup competition.

What's the minimum number of points an offense needs to score to blame a loss on the defense, and vice versa? Maybe it's just me but I wonder about this kind of thing ;)

NFL: Sure we were right to have a shortened preseason with no warm-up games. Sure we were.
