Jags, you lucked into the birth of my daughter
Thank you DrJohn for taking all the time it takes to run this.
Now do you think we can take, oh let's say, six of my points and move them to the NFL pick 'em?lol.
My only disappointment is that a official CFL football wasn't the prize/lol

This is a week I wish I could have multiple locks/lol. And as a Jaguar fan, I haven't stopped laughing yet at the fact that Mularkey is the coach now for Tennessee and Gabbert is starting in San Fran. 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.

Not that it makes a big difference, but I had another point (I had the margin as 3 for the Toronto-BC game).

You had Philly by 13 and they lost by 11.
Sorry, I thought that meant the points would be 11 to 15 then, my bad.
I should have, like, 20 more points. You missed some shit here and there, man.
I wish I could blame it someone else, other than my bad picking/lol. (If only I hadn't twice missed my lock, ... if only/lol)

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)

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)

Rcade--I hope so too/lol. This week, it's both. I really do think we'll win this week but, I have to admit, that I can not pick against them, regardless of the opponent, and whether I think they will win or not. In Bortles we trust.

I was at the Reds-Cubs game Sunday, and Russell lost a bat that day as well. The bat ended up about 5 rows back of the Cubs dugout down the 3rd base line. Maybe, he should try some stickum. Luckily, in Cincy, no one was hurt.

Ok, I get that New England would have won, regardless of how much air was in the footballs, but that misses the point. If you were speeding down a street and then you got stopped at a red light, you couldn't tell the police officer that it didn't matter that you were speeding since you would arrive at your destination at the same time because of the red light. (the speeding had no effect on the eventual outcome). You were still speeding. In this case, the Patriots, if it is proven to be so, were still cheating, even if it didn't determine the final outcome.

Yeah, can't pick against my team/lol, even if I'm pretty sure they're going to lose. At least, there's no money involved.

First off, it's the name that lost it's trademark today, not the logo. So Flea market vendors will not be able to sell items with their logo, only with the name. Also, the name is still registered, it's just not trademarked anymore. (Basically, you'll see the little circle with an R in it, instead of a "TM" after the name now). I don't think this will cost the Washington franchise very much money at all in the end (as far as marketing and merchandise). Basically, someone could use the Redskin name (since it's no longer trademarked) but since they couldn't use the logo and the name is still registered it would have to appear they are promoting someone other than the NFL team that currently resides in Washington, D.C.
I really like an idea that I heard on Olbermann (who I usually don't agree with on too many "political type of things"). He suggested that they keep the logos, the uniforms, etc. but change the name to the Washington Americans. The more I thought about it, the more I liked it. What a perfect way to honor the Native American (instead of pretending that you're honoring them with an abusive slur).

I know this was about a single player, but to show the difference between greatness and bottom feeders, if a team goes 4-3 every week they'll finish with 92-93 wins and probably make the playoffs. If that same team goes 3-4 each week they'll lose 92-93 games and get their manager fired, etc. It's amazing to think that the difference is that minimal that one game out of every seven makes that big of a difference.
posted by jagsnumberone at 04:15 AM on March 18
I think this is actually a plan for Washington to highlight Cousins to make him available for a trade. There are a lot of teams that will be looking for a good young quarterback, and Washington needs draft picks.

I think there are several problems with the thesis. First off, you can't group all African-Americans as being descended from slaves, it's just not true. To say, that someone who has descended from slaves "may" have came from a gene pool that was more athletic is not out of the question. You could have been white and descended from slavery (Greek and Roman time frames, for instance). The theory should be that if you descended from slavery you have a higher chance of having "athletic" type genes in your make-up. It doesn't mean you will have, and doesn't mean if you didn't come from a slavery descendence that you will not have "athletic" type of genes. It's like if you have family members that have had cancer, you may be more dispositioned to have cancer as well. It doesn't mean you will get cancer and it doesn't mean only those who have family members who have had cancer will get it. It just a higher probability that's all. If these same people hadn't been slaves but rather workers in their villages, their descendents would still be at a higher probability of having the athletic gene, just like athletes kids have a better chance of being athletic (since many of the slaves were taken because of their strength).

I'm saddened by this news as I look at two of his masterpieces that hang on my wall in my office. He had a very unique style that really brought the casual sports fan into the "art" world, much like Andy Warhol did for a generation.

The Dayton Dutch Lions had a similar game here against the Columbus Crew. They were badly outshot yet beat their MLS opponent 2-1 to move on to the next round. Not sure if this speaks poorly of the MLS or that these teams may not be taking this tournament as seriously as the lower tier teams.

And what's with the Jaguar car script - a bit too close for copyright comfort
When Jacksonville first received the franchise the original logo looked a lot like the Jaguar motor logo, and they were sued by Jaguar. They changed their uniforms and logo prior to their first season because of this (they had about year and half from the time they were selected to have a franchise and their first game). You can see the original helmet here

"Potvin sucks"/lol. Even if he did, which he didn't, Bossy, Trottier, Gilles, Nystrom, Goring, the Sutter brothers, Smith, etc knew how to win a few cups. I like when Denis said, " I thought they were saying Potvin Cups, and I held up four fingers"--Classic!! Now if Tavares and the boys could just get us back into the playoffs sometime this century...
