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.

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.

On my want list: - Irish hurling

My across-the-street neighbor is an avid hurler and hurling fan who hails from the perennial powerhouse of Kilkenny. We arise at 5:00 am every year (and begin drinking Guinness at 5:15) to watch the national finals, which Kilkenny pretty much always win.

After a decade of this viewing ritual, I was presented with my vey own Kilkenny jersey last St. Patrick's.

Really wanted to pick the Chargers tonight, but I completely chickened out like the wimp that I am. Well, it's not over yet and these are the 16 Chargers...

NFL Pick 'Em Week 5: Touchdown John Kuhn Edition

I have a category 4 hurricane that's a more pressing concern.

Pssht. Pussy. In all seriousness, do stay safe. This one seems like a nasty one, and I think our diversion takes a back seat.

RIP Arnold Palmer, 1929-2016

Maybe he can teach God to hit a 1-iron when he arrives at the pearly gates. Rest in Peace, Arnie.

I'm a little surprised that there hasn't been an ocean of "SEE BRADY WAS NEVER THAT GOOD" think pieces

It's almost like the "they hate us" narrative that Boston fans have embraced so firmly was largely fictitious. I'll be damned!
