I think I should have 26 points right now. 21 for the three games that I got right and a +5 for the interception guess that I got right.

New Carolina Hurricanes majority owner (61% stake), Thomas Dundon to be formally introduced at noon eastern today.

Nice win in DC for the new owner last night. Dundon was in attendance for the Clemson/NC State game last night. Nice win for the woofies last night as well.

For the folks that paid attention to his QB Camp over the years, did he seem to be able to spot good quarterbacks? Or what?

Another "what could've been" season for NC State. They started the season with an extremely disappointing loss to South Carolina and they could've beaten Clemson. I'm not suggesting that they could've been in the final four, but they could've played in a bigger bowl game. Oh well. Maybe next year? That is, if they have someone to replace Ryan Finley at QB.

We love our Roku. For the longest time, we subscribed only to Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and had an Amazon Prime membership. We recently broke down and upped our Hulu subscription to the live TV version. It's cable TV lite and, honestly, worth the $40 that we spend on it. It's got all that we need: Food TV, TCM, and a good sports package (plus a lot of other cable networks).

You can still use the other channels that you install onto your Roku. For instance, we can watch ESPN live through Hulu, or I can get out of Hulu, go into the ESPN channel and watch all of their live events and replay of previous events. Since ESPN does not air cricket games on any of their channels here in the US, I can load up their channel on the Roku and watch any live crickets matches that they are showing there. These days, it's usually just New Zealand international matches and English county play. I'm still trying to convince myself to subscribe to Willow TV for all of the other cricket events.

We tried the DirecTV Now cable package, but it's offerings (especially for sports) weren't as good as Hulu's. It's cheaper by $5 a month, but not as good. The weirdest thing about DirecTV Now is that it does offer FS1 and FS2, but there is no way to log into the Fox Sport channel that is outside of DirecTV Now. As a result, I was not able to watch my Hurricanes games. I am able to log into the Fox Sports channel outside of Hulu so I am able to watch my Canes games by virtue of being a Hulu live tv subscriber.

In conclusion, the Roku is a land of contrast. Thank you.

RIP Dick Enberg, one of the all time great sportscasters. Here's a great story by him of Norm Cash bringing a table leg to bat during Nolan Ryan's second no-hitter.

His sportscasting career spanned 60+ years. He covered just about everything: football, baseball, tennis, horse racing, golf, Olympics.

I loved hearing him and Merlin Olsen call NFL games on TV. (The other great announcing team was Pat Summerall and John Madden.)

Supreme Court to hear N.J. sports betting arguments Monday

To rcade's point: the state of North Carolina outlawed electronic poker machines, electronic bingo machines, all of that type of stuff that was so pervasive in the more rural areas of the state. Gas stations, bars, you name it, they had those electronic gaming machines in a corner of the building. The state outlawed them and made a thorough sweep across the state, confiscating those machines. Well, guess what the state just started up. Electronic keno machines! And they'll probably end up in the same places that those poker and bingo machines lived. HA! Great googly moogly
