Baseball Hall of Fame adds "The Kid" and the catcher in 2016.

the Gooch (his high school moniker),

Wasn't there a football player in the 80s from Moeller who was nicknamed the Gooch, as well? I think he ended up going to Notre Dame. It was right after the Francisco brothers (Hiawatha and DaJuan, I think). I'm pretty sure it was during the Faust era.

NFL Pick 'Em Contest Winner: Grum@work

Congrats Grum. Job well done.

This may be more popular than I realize, but it always seemed odd to me. The only thing I like about it is that Jagsnumberone can always pick the Jags while still trying to get a point when they're all-but-certain to be walloped

Wished we had used it this year, would have meant a lot more points for me (It seemed at least once a week I would have the spread exactly correct but the wrong team/lol)

Also, the Jags will win a lot more games next year, so I'll miss less games (fingers crossed on this one/lol)

This is a week I wish I could have multiple locks/lol.

Did these teams not see what happened in Jax when these two were there? Next, Gene Smith will be hired as GM by some foolish team.

You had Philly by 13 and they lost by 11.

The NHL Season Begins Anew!

The Columbus Blue Jackets make the playoffs this year (but lose in the first round in a hard fought series).

Ovechkin and Crosby will not win a Cup and both will be blamed for their team's lack of winning one, though both will be in conversation for the Hart.

"My" New York Islanders will make it out of the first round of the playoffs, but their fanbase will still be bitter about the move to Brooklyn and the horrible seating arrangement at the Barclays.

Bettman will do something to solidify, once again, why he is considered (and rightfully so) the worst commissioner in all of North American sports.

Las Vegas will be announced as a expansion franchise, Quebec will have to wait (will Seattle get it instead?) to find out their fate until next offseason. (Personally, I think, it will come down to if any current franchises end up moving--like the Coyotes, because some owners want to see more travel balance for the teams out west)

The playoffs will score some of the highest TV ratings of the last 5 years but the Finals will flop in the ratings department.

Buffalo will not have the worst record in the league this year (but maybe second or third worst)

I will win the fantasy hockey league.

Nashville will be the "in" pick to win it all before the playoffs begin, but will fall short.

The Rangers will not win a playoff series.

After taking the Ducks to a classic seven game series, the Sharks go on to beat the Bruins in six to hoist the cup.

These are my bold predictions for this year. (if you are near Vegas, go ahead and put money "against" all of these and you'll finish ahead/lol)

NFL Pick 'Em, Week 1: Win One for the Duke

Tahoemoj, I probably should tell you that I live just outside of Cincy (grew up here and was/is a Bengals fan), so maybe I'm part of a curse/lol.

(Just FYI-- I grew up in Ohio, went to college in Florida (Jacksonville University then post grad at Univ. North Fla.) stayed in Jax for 18 years-original season ticket holder for the Jags, then moved back to Ohio (family still lives here and job related), in case you were wondering how I could be such a diehard Jags fan and live in Ohio)
