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 Thursday Huddle

It's his roundabout way of saying "Blonde with the breadstick is hot!".

Oh, I caught the joke, but that doesn't make it sound any less like a Crispin Glover fever dream.

If one must be reincarnated as an inanimate object...

I feel like someone has the obligation to address the 800 lb, and apparently very stoned, gorilla in the room.

thankfully not chili-related

Being 2,000 miles removed from my beloved Skyline Chili, I am forced to make Cincy chili from scratch at home. Nowhere near as convenient as a jaunt to the corner Skalini's Spaghetti Palace (as the locals refer to it), but it does cut back on the streaking.

NFL Pick 'Em, Week 1: Win One for the Duke

in case you were wondering how I could be such a diehard Jags fan and live in Ohio

First of all, anyone who leaves Ohio and is smart enough to abandon any vestiges of Bengals and/or Browns fanhood cannot be faulted. Not even a little bit. I have lived on the west coast for 21 years now, but am too stubborn (dumb?) to abandon my allegiance to the Bengals after living in Cincinnati for 20 years. When I think of how much more pleasant my last two decades would have been if I had just jumped on the Niners, Seahawks, Chargers, or even Raiders (ok, just kidding) bandwagon.

But then after being smart enough to jump ship, you pick the Jags?! And stick with them, even with the Bengals reaching the pinnacle of almost being competitive?! If you're ever in Santa Barbara, I'll buy you a drink.

SportsFilter: The Friday Huddle

"Maybe there's not. Maybe it's just an unwritten rule. We saw it on film, that the Patriots do that. They shift and slide and do stuff on the goal line, knowing that it's an itchy trigger finger-type down there.

Because any Steelers fan knows that on the goal line, only one of two plays is permitted: Line up with 3 tight ends and run straight at the defense, or line up with 3 tight ends, fake the run straight at the defense and throw to the tight end. Anything else is cheating.

I hate the Pats as much as the next guy (but not as much as the Steelers!), but Jebus, Ben. A guy who made his living playing in a Todd Haley offense complaining about any sort of trickery is just silly.
