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.

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 Sunday Huddle

let's given Bolt a chance at a ceremonial first pitch to see.

And give him a crack at a national anthem, as well. US, Jamaica, or Radiohead - his choice.

Tim Tebow Wants to Play Baseball

Why not take a stab at it if he can get teams to give him a look?

Because he's just going to trip over his dick on a big stage again?

SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle

Sorry for the erroneous information yesterday.

Hate to break it to you, but your credibility is now irreparably out the window.

the league leader in RBI (Jay Bruce, NL) has been traded in the middle of the season (to the Mets, from the Reds)

If Bruce had put up similar numbers throughout his career with the Reds, he would have become the centerpiece of the organization. Instead, he bookended some strikeout-heavy mediocrity between two pretty great seasons. I look forward to seeing which batter is the real Jay Bruce. I suspect that this year is the anomaly, but we shall see. Also, he has come to be known as a defensive liability due to his poor positioning and ball tracking skills, but he has one hell of an arm from the outfield that is good for some spectacular put outs.

CFL Pick 'Em, Week Six

I am terribly proud to have followed up by momentous comeback week with a week of vacation in Maine, thereby purposefully avoiding the interwebs at all costs. I wear my week 6 goose egg as a badge of honor (sorry...honour), and look forward to redemption for week 7.

The NBA officially pulls the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte, NC

I would generally rather watch just about any sport in the world rather than basketball; it just doesn't appeal to me as a game. Yet, I suddenly find myself becoming a fan of the NBA.

And what grum, tommytrump, NoMich, and billsaysthis said.
