If if looks like a sport, smells like a sport....

Most wrestling related post are about steroids and the behavior brought on by their use and this is a topic that affects the sporting world at large. On the other hand the out comes are predetermined and therefore negate its legitimacy in the eyes of many. I say we just have it now rather than debating the "is it/isn't it" thing when another wrestling post is put up here. SpoFi frowns on the is it/isn't discussion but I feel this topic warrants it.

Why do you support who you do?

I am a quasi-homer. In baseball I like the Yankees and in basketball I love the Knicks. I am new to the football and since I bartend every sunday I am forced to watch the games. Since I have to be emotionally involved to dig sports I have to have a team. From this point forward I will be a San Diego Chargers fan. When it comes to hockey I am a die-hard Philadelphia Flyers fan. I chose the Fly guys because of their reputation of being a rough and tumble team. Plus orange is my favorite color.

NHL Trade Deadline Aftermath Thread:

The Crystalball Huet trade is a huge shock to me, it seemes like he was the future of the Canadians. Nice move by Dallas, picking up Richards and not giving up too much. Just because he was having an off year and his upcoming free agency they were able to get a sweet deal.

Homer Jersey Swap?

Dude, I am really sorry, I was just trying to name the worst Jersey ever (I can't believe anyone would want this) I have an un-named away (blue, yeah I go old school, bring back home whites!) Fish Sticks knock off Jersey but not a Kirk Muller, an away (red) Montreal (33 Roy) replica and an away (blue) Quebec replica with Sakic on it. Both replicas have stitched names and numbers and are otherwise indistinguishable from an authentic except for the lack of fight strap. Everything else is my Flyers gear and you will have to pry that out of my cold dead hands. I am only interested in hockey jerseys, I like defunct Canadian teams (Jets, Quebec, old Vancouver logo), The Flames (Lanny jersey? anyone?) or anything with a goaltender. The Lindross Jersey sounds tempting Bo, but I hate the son of a bitch so much now I could never wear, let alone look at that jersey. I wouldn't mind a Celtic Football or Liverpool jersey if anyone has one and is willing to trade. I am sorry if my poor attempt at humor got anyone's hopes up. Chico you must be as blind as Ann Frank if you like the Gordon's Fishstick jersey.

See the part about undersexed males in my post. That means you (THX) can be interested. ZING! dude, uh, I think you made my point... And what point is that? If it is "nobody cares about Jessica Simpson's vagina" then I don't see that as your point. Remember you are the one who just posted yet another comment about her nether region. Nobody here is buying that as an excuse for Romo's poor play in a football game that happened over a week ago. If you want talk like that check out some of the yahoo or ESPN boards.

Calling All Rookies

[4 digit post yahoo noobish vet] Some of my favorite things are talking hockey with real (and fucking hysterical) life Canadians and some very knowledgeable Michiganders. Seriously the hockey threads are a testament to sheer awesomeness. This site also opened me up to soccer so now at my job (where I am the only white boy and everyone else is either Dominican or El Salvadorian) I can keep and make somewhat intelligent comments on the game. I have to thank a few American and lots of European and Aussie soccer fans for making those threads and the World Cup Campfire so fun. Without that I would still be clueless when it comes to real football. Going into the baseball threads is like going to school(grum is the dean of hockey school) , some of the cats on this site know mad shite about baseball. It could be stats, history, trivia, whatever we got it all. Lastly I will site the more "off beat" stuff. Where else can you find bowling, amputee track and field, ice dancing, skiing (llb is the resident sky instructor) boxing, MMA, pro wrestling, and some sports I have never even heard of. Its not all sunshine and kittens though. The NFL threads seem to be a breeding ground for douchebaggery. I am giving the sport an honest second chance before I give it up totally and seeing the kind of fan it attracts here is yet another deterrent for me to fully embrace the game. Don't get me wrong I love the pick 'ems though, especially when I go 4 for 4 and shame all the knowledgeable NFL fans. I also wouldn't mind seeing more Lacrosse threads. Of course I could stop being lazy and post some articles. I would really like to see a space for just talking shop about sports. Weather it be sports we play/coach or just theory (for example rugby union vs rugby league or is 1-3-1 a better neutral zone scheme than the 1-2-2) There really isn't going to be an article out there about this so maybe it could be a function of the locker room? All in all this site is fucking awesome. Best sports site on the web as far as I am concerned. The admins are great, even though gary and I have butted heads and I don't hear from kirk enough. There is so much right with this site that it really sucks when a couple of the wrongs bring down the enjoyment level for so many people. Sorry for the long post. NUFF SAYD!

Presented without comment,

Also, the fact that both Crafty's and SE's departures come after big homerrific spats While I won't pretend to speak for either of them I think Crafty anf SE left for different reasons. Crafty just didn't seem to be enjoying himself anymore. I think SE had a problem with some of what was being said in thread about this particular topic. Drug addiction and family is a pretty rough topic and having people with little or no expirence with something like that shouting "clean up or leave" was pretty infurating for me. I hope I am not coming across as over sensetive, but I really feel for the Reid family. When SE said Andy Reid is dealing with two of his children who are addicts. If anyone has dealt with that, let them step forward. Otherwise shut the fuck up I tried 3 time to respond to that post and just couldn't do it. For once I had something to say that wasn't a bad joke and felt like I couldn't post it because of the judgemental tone of the thread. I have enough family and friends who have more of a right to tell me what a scum bag I am (luckily they don't) because of addiction and the fucked up shit it makes you do, than someone on a sports website who I have never met. For all I know SE could have had a similar problem or at the very least been related to or known someone with a similar problem. Maybe he was just disgusted by the way the Reid family's problems were being summed up with the bullshit tough love approach. We'll never know now, the douche is gone. I really like this place, the banter is great, some of the threads are off the beaten path. I also gain some insight into sports I had early gave up on (Ufez and his NBA enthusiasm brought me back to the Knickerbockers) and all my online friends across the pond have enabled me to at least follow a soccer match and appreciate some of the more subtle aspects of the game. For me this place has been a mind opening expierence and I hope it will stick around a bit longer.

NBA Prediction Thread

Boston, Phoenix, Mavs. Need i say more? How about San Antonio, you know the team won the NBA championship last season. The NBA isn't a league that is so easy to predict anymore. Granted San Anton won it all last year, but how many people saw the Cav's in the finals, or Golden State coming out of the first round. After the magic run of Maimi two years ago the NBA has lured me back in for more shattered dreams and broken hearts.

Baseball and Philosophy: Thinking Outside the Batter's Box by Eric Bronson. Excellent choice, oh Crafty one. It is one of the few non-Tom Clancy books (the real one not that ruddy faced cherub that did NY recently) I could get him to read. When it comes to non-sports book I would higly recommend anything by Chuck Klosterman. He writes some stuff about basketball but most of it is about the rock and/or roll music. Killing Yourself to live was a winner.
