Nice hops, rook.
Is it just my not-very-well-informed perception that there is a loooot of excellent young talent in baseball right now? Or is there really a loooot of excellent young talent in baseball right now?

Absolutely disagree. Stephen Curry *has* to be the MVP of the series. To say otherwise would run counter to my SpoFi Pick 'Em prediction that he would win the MVP. Nuff said!!1!

Former NC State basketball player (and hero of the 1983 championship) is mightily impressed with the amphibious pitcher.

Charlotte, NC is in a thin zone through the western piedmont area that gets no Baltimore, Atlanta or Cincinnati games. Cincinnati? WTF? And the last time I subscribed to MLB.tv, Baltimore and Washington games were blacked out. I wonder if that still holds and if so, if Charlotte gets no Washington games either.

It seems some of you are missing the Largest Margin of Victory in a Single Game category.
Thanks for doing this, ufez. There was a period there where I was so busy with work that the only reason I got onto a computer was to do work and not do fun things like badly guess sporting events.

Had that been cricket, all that contact after the two dot balls would've been a bunch of singles and maybe a few boundaries before the six. All in three overs. Not bad.

Nice nail biter in the IPL today. Kings XI needed 100+ runs with only 50 some odd balls to go against Rajasthan and took the match in the super over. I haven't had much of a chance to watch any IPL games yet this season, so this was a fun way to start.

That Cuban Pretzel Dog reminds of the Carolina Que Dog that I had a Durham Bulls game. It's a foot long hot dog smothered in chopped barbecue and slaw. It was really good, but half through the damn thing, I thought I was going to die.
The Carolina Hurricanes and/or the stadium in which they play has a vendor in the concourse that has a really good chopped 'cue sandwich.

Well, there's the advantage of viewing the game in much higher resolutions than what watchcric can offer. Also, replay. I'm waiting for the SL/SA match to be over then I'm going to fire it up and watch it while at work today.

On my way of getting State and Carolina together in the Finals, I accidentally got an all ACC Final Four. I keep forgetting that Notre Dame is in the ACC now.

I love watching rugby. It's all calvinball to me but still fun to watch. It feels like a backyard football game among friends where new moves keep getting added to the game and stick around only if nobody objects. My favorite is the inbound pass that features a guy getting lifted 15 feet in the air by his teammates.

Is anyone picking a winner against your rooting interest?
To be honest, I'm not all that interested in this year's Game. Seattle won it last year and I'm just flat out sick of seeing the Patriots on my TV, but I'll peep in here and there just to see how well my picks turn out. However, when The Great British Baking Show is on at 8:00 tonight, you bet your life I'll be tuned in.

It's a shame that Brodeur's career ends the same way as other NHL HOFers like Salming and Modano, clinging to one more season of play wearing an unfamiliar jersey.

Having grown up in Florida, I hate it when they frickin' name a storm in January. Hurricane season ends in late November. And it's even worse when they dip into Roman mythology. Winter Storm Juno? Really? Let's have a real live woman's name. OK, or man's name. I'll bet there are darned few babies in the South that have been named Camille since 1969.
The naming of blizzards is coming from the Weather Channel. The National Weather service has nothing to do with the namings and refuses to acknowledge them. Rest easy, my friend.
Oh, and I do have a friend named Camille because of the legendary hurricane, but funnily enough, she's from North Dakota. However, I know her from down here in North Carolina.

I can't believe that Mr. Lynch got off so lightly by the NFL. Shit, I can't even believe that security didn't apprehend him and toss him in jail. And how the eff did he get to the Boston area so quickly after the NFC Championship game?
