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 Friday Huddle

I'm reading that sentence over and over again. I can't tell whether it is high-grade literary spam or just bot-generated gibberish.

And everyone knows that the Wolf Boy is none other than the man himself, Mark Oliver Everett.

Even coming from a Sharks fan, I love watching McDavid play hockey. Maybe he doesn't have the passer's sixth sense that Crosby has, but his combination of speed, strength, and hands is just incredible.

MLB Execs Consider Wild 9th-Inning Batting Rule

That's the stupidest fucking suggestion I've heard since about 5:30 yesterday afternoon. Now, if the trailing team had the option to send its best hitter out against the leading team's best pitcher--not to play baseball but to engage in a winner-take-all dance-off--with the stipulation that the leading team gets to select the musical/dance genre and the trailing team gets to pick the specific song, you'd have me investing in the MLB package on an annual basis.

Brother, if you're heading to the North American National Disgrace Field Office, when you get there, you'll find that there's a damn hell of a long line in front of you.

And several of those ahead of you in line would relish the opportunity to trade national disgraces. Oh, how I pine for the days of failing to medal in certain events topping the list of our disgrace.

Even though it worked out in favor of the good old USA yesterday, I completely agree with you. Reducing a flowing, team-oriented game to a circus act sucks, especially when a gold medal is on the line between two bitter rivals.

Jason Kelce, Ladies and Gentlemen

I knew that Travis was outspoken/flamboyant, but I had no idea that his brother made him like like a shrinking violet in comparison! Kelce has a great career in the WWE waiting for him upon retirement if he wants it.

His outfit also led me to learn about Philly's annual mummer's parade, which looks like a hell of a good time.

The Film the NFL doesn't want you to see

I get the whole "experimental/conceptual" film style as a hook, but I found it very difficult to watch more than about 2 minutes of Concussion Protocol. While it was somewhat effective in that it highlights the after-effects of the collision prior to showing the impact itself, it just kinda gave me a headache (no pun intended) after a while to watch too much reverse film. Then again, I'm not sure that one needs to watch the film in its entirety to understand the danger involved in head injuries.

Either way, thanks for the link, rumple.

I sent you an email, tahoemoj

I got nothin'. But I believe I joined SpoFi 2 or 3 email addresses ago, back in the sbcglobal.net days. I checked that account, which is now largely a spam repository, and saw nothing that might be from you. I'm going to send a current email through the 'contact us' link and see what happens.

we need to receive updates periodically on the life-changing experience that wearing these pants doubtlessly brings

Photographic evidence must be shown that you actually wore those pants

You bet your ass those will be worn. Going to Europe for 3 weeks this summer, and I see myself on multiple occasions being the "Ugly American" just to let the zubaz see the world. Also looking for an orange bow tie so that I might replace my normal tuxedo pants at my next formal event.

Thanks for running the show, rcade. Email with zubaz delivery instructions to come soon.

Boston Sports Host Insults Brady's 5-Year-Old Kid

On the one hand, what kind of shitheel calls a 5-year old child a "pissant" on the radio? Especially when that child is the child of a revered local sports hero who makes weekly appearances on your radio station?

On the other hand, it's Boston sports radio, so *yawn*
