Sports Bio

Fan of pro teams from Cincinnati, vividly remember the cold bowl against Fouts' Chargers, and hope I live to see some glory soon.

Still haven't gotten over the Whale leaving Hartford. Jumped squarely onto the NJ Devils bandwagon at that point, but just love all things hockey.

Ray Rice Suspended for 2 Games: the Baltimore Ravens running back will be suspended for the first two games of the regular season under the NFL's personal conduct policy and fined a third game check. The ban comes in response to Rice allegedly striking his then-fiancée and now wife, Janay, unconscious in February in Atlantic City. Rice was able to avoid prosecution after being accepted into a pre-trial intervention program.

NHL Re-Alignment:: The NHL announced the new alignment today, with two conferences of two divisions each. The Detroit Red Wings will now play in the Eastern Conference in the Atlantic Division, and the Winnipeg Jets will be in the Western Conference in the Central Division. Let the natural rivalries (Tampa-Toronto?) begin to take shape!

Is there a racially motivated quarterback controversy brewing in Washington?: Skip Bayless thinks so. Bayless claims that it is human nature for white fans to cheer for white athletes; therefore, fellow rookie Kirk Cousins will be the fans' choice over #2 overall pick Robert Griffin for the starting job.

SportsFilter: The Sunday Huddle

the two towns could not be more different.

Sorry, prof. I'm not sure what you think you know about Montana, but those of us from the central coast of California can assure you that Montana is not what you think.

It is completely homogenous, and its citizens are all virtual exact replicas of each other - rugged, scruffy, outdoorsy types who all carry fly rods at all times. I'm also about 98% certain that it is one great big valley, surrounded by stunning mountain scenery in every direction that is always somehow on the horizon. You clearly do not watch enough movies about Montana.

Congrats to Roger Goodell on his victory.

C'mon. The officiating this season has been piss poor all the way around. I agree that some bad calls went against the Pats last night (and as the fatma noted, they got some in their favor, as well), but to conclude that there was some Goodell-instigated conspiracy at play is pretty silly.

Was anyone able to nail this week's LOCK for the NFL scores?

I haven't looked yet, but I picked the Bengals. And there's no way in hell that they lost to the Texans last night, right? RIGHT?

Colts Out of Luck as QB Suffers Lacerated Kidney

You just know that Luck looks longingly to the east down I-74 toward Cincinnati, ruefully gazing at the offensive line, running backs, and receivers surrounding Andy Dalton Then he coughs up a little bit of blood, lies back in his bed and presses the morphine button with the goal of dreaming happy dreams that don't involve 300 lb men running after him unmolested.

CFL Pick 'Em, Final Standings

Jags, you lucked into the birth of my daughter, which prevented me from making my final week picks. I have no doubt that I would have put up a 20 point week and snatched victory from you when you believed it assured. Nonetheless, well, played fellow rookie.

DJE, I appreciate your effort putting this together, even if you changed my name in the process.

Basically, "Yeah, it's offensive. ... So?"

Well, at least it's less disingenuous than their previous "honor" bullshit.
