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.

That would explain the longevity in office. But not the legs.

Groans. Too soon (?)

Three conference champions and Ohio State walk into a stadium...

This Buckeyes fan is cautiously optimistic about our chances. Not a bad little "rebuilding" year after putting 3/4 of last year's roster into the NFL.

Although I do think the Bucks are the better team top-to-bottom, I'm not going to look past Clemson. Anybody who looks past Deshaun Watson is setting themselves up for some heartache, and Swinney will have his squad ready to play.

I'm in the camp that predicts that Washington will get its ass handed to it, but would love to see them give 'Bama a run for its money. Maybe the SEC was grossly overrated this year (but then again, maybe it wasn't). And nobody really gave "Bama a scare at all this year. Will the PAC-12 representative try to play some defense in the bowl game?

Saban is a hell of a coach who always puts a top-notch product on the field. But so is Urban Meyer. Maybe (if they meet) 'Bama's team-wide experience wins out this year; but hopefully OSU's experience where is counts-at QB-can be a difference maker.

NHL's Newest Team: The Vegas Golden Knights

David Copperfield is in charge of resurfacing the ice.

What are you, stuck in the 90's?!?! The Golden Knights will not be using ice, but will play while being levitated approximately 3 inches off of the ground by Krisssssss Angel (*mindfreak). Opposing teams must supply their own mindfreak, wizard, shaman, sorcerer, witch, or similar levitation expert.

NHL's Newest Team: The Vegas Golden Knights

As a Nevadan, I welcome our first big league professional sports franchise. It will be hard for me to embrace the Golden Knights over the San Jose Sharks as my "local" team, as San Jose is considerably closer to Reno than Vegas is, but I will certainly be pulling for them in a secondary way, and hope they do well.

I can't imagine them ever standing out the way a classic logo does over time.

Seconded. However, the colors are interesting, and I eagerly await a jersey design. I fear it will be very minor league-esque, but hope to be pleasantly surprised.

Was it a safety, rather than a two-point conversion the other direction? If so, why?

CFL Pick 'Em, Final Standings

Congrats to rcade on the positive prognostication! Or was it merely good guesswork? Either way, well done sir.

I feel pretty good about my T3, considering I failed to make picks on two separate occasions.

And thanks, Dr. J, for again kindling my interest in football north of the border!
