SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

I guess people know who the guy is today and that must have been his goal in life. Should have given more than 2 minutes thought to coming up with a meaningful message if he planned on changing lyrics so the entire audience wonder if the dude was stoned or something ... wtf.

Tim Duncan announces retirement

NBA : NHL :: Tim Duncan : Niklas Lidstrom

Like that.

How about NFL : Charles Woodson ?

Aside from the fact he's an incredible athlete, Woodson also does his job at the highest level playing wherever doing whatever is asked of him, wins, and makes everyone around him better.

Tim Duncan announces retirement

Slower, shorter, and less athletic than pretty much anyone he was matched up against yet dominated because he was so fundamentally sound. His presence made everyone around him better. He could score 12 points and be the key player on the court ... but he would never accept the credit for it. Signed team friendly contracts to enable his team to remain competitive.

Looks like a pretty deliberate motion in that link. Pretty stupid as well. Best tender on the planet well positioned to make the stop off of a corner header versus a free kick in penalty .. wrong choice.

what they hell would you jump in the air like that?

With you on that. Fundamentally something that players have already had drilled into them by the time they reach the age of 13. Terrible positioning by the defender. Don't ever expect to see that kind of lapse from a world class player.

At the same time you also don't expect a world class official to make a call that dictates the outcome of a contest unless completely warranted.

What a call to make in a Euro semi-final.

Kevin Durant signs with Golden State

The NBA will never let that happen.

Why Montreal would trade PK just boggles my mind.

Montreal gets one of the top 5 D in the world for PK who may be in the top 15 depending on the direction of the team. Defensively Suban is a liability and doesn't fit Montreal's game. Nashville is moving towards more offense and Suban fits the scheme. Overall if Weber's game stays near or at the same level it is at for the next 4 years Nashville got hosed.

Smart move by the Bolts

Smart move by Stamkos as well. Stays with a team that pushed the Penguins this year in his absence and has a good shot next year. Gets paid in US dollars to live in Tampa and pays next to nothing in taxes. Hard to believe some "experts" figured he was a done deal to the Leafs.

Wait, those "experts" were all Toronto based media.

Hall should be a nice top line winger

Hall was a good player in a bad situation. Talk was he was the 1 untouchable in Edmonton and that Nugent-Hopkins and Eberley were available all last season. Of the 3 Edmonton traded away the best player by a long shot.

The 12th Annual chicobangs Memorial SpoFi CFL Pick 'Em

Canadian footballs ... ARE AMERICAN?

Pigs up here have very thick hair, and therefore large pores, to cope with the cold in winter eh. Use of their skin would produce an end product with significant and unacceptable fluctuations in air pressure.
