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.

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.

I bet I could pull off the coveted double Costanza.

I'm all for the "drop the low week" idea.

You can leave off the final 2 steps of that chain, NoMich. Clemson is #1. Therefore, I, as a MAC alum, am outraged that Central Michigan is not going to get its shot at the playoff.

I don't know about you, but I hit all of the links. I am now girthier and more virile, am able to make her scream every time, and own several properties in the northeast of Namibia. Unfortunately, I fear that my existing wife will be displeased by the arrival of her Thai sister wife. Dangers of the interwebz, I suppose.
