Sports Bio

Born and raised in Minnesota, so I am a Vikings/Timberwolves/Twins/Wild fan. But I also live in Colorado, so I am a Broncos/Nuggets/Avalanche/Rockies fan.

Love all sports, but my passions lie with Football and Golf and Hockey.

James Oyebola's life support to be switched off.

It's stories such as the last three that make the Mike Vick and Pacman stories so much more frustrating. Here we have a young girl killed by a softball, a great college coach dying way too young, and a boxer shot and killed by two idiots because he asked them to not smoke. This has been a very depressing few weeks for sports news and discussions. I am to the point where I don't want to read sports, listen to talk radio or tv. Godspeed to the little girl, the coach and the boxer. '

Chris Simon cheap shot

Simon has always been a dirty player. He pushes the dirty "envelope" everytime his is on the ice. One year minimum, and if I were Hollweg, I would file charges. I love hockey, I like the fights, but this is just play ridiculous.

Who's the Daddy?

What inspiration. I cried. I know that there are many wonderful stories in this world, I only wish we could hear about more of them, instead of all the crap that goes on in this world. My sincerest thanks JJ for the article. Peace to all of you.

Tiger Does It Again!

Accepted, but the key there is the word "contention". When there is an actual battle for the win, people are interested. But when Tiger is running away from the field......

Tiger Does It Again!

Food for thought. I love Tiger as a person, he is a phenom to say the least. But, is he good for golf? I have heard many comments on the course that they loose interest in watching golf because the results are a foregone conclusion. They have more interest in watching when Tiger isn't playing. I personally enjoy watching Tiger sometimes, and other times it gets boring watching the same guy win over and over. It is not unlike when Jack was so dominating and so many people hated him for beating their favorite players like Arnie, Lee and Gary. Also, when it comes to stating who is the best golfer ever, how do you really compare Tiger against Jack or Arnie. It's like comparing apples to oranges. Different generations of equipment, courses, etc. make it almost impossible to compare them. I realize that Tiger is one of the greatest golfers I have ever watched. He can hit shots no one else would even attempt. But I am just saying... Open for discussion.

Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez!

Black Hand - nice story. I was stationed at the Naval Reserve headquarters in New Orleans from 1982-1986. The first year there, I won season tickets to the Saints in a welfare and recreation raffle the base had. It was GREAT. The people of New Orleans now how to party, and they do so every Sunday of football season at the Dome. Back then, they didn't really care if they won or not, they just came to party. Now, after Katrina, and with the Saints playing so well, they still party, but they are partying WITH the Saints. Like you said, you just can't hate the Saints. I will be pulling for them this weekend (and hopefully again in the SuperBowl).

Favre angry that NFL turns its back on Robinson

I agree with Favre. If it were not for the image problem they already had, I think the Vikings would have loved to have kept Robinson. This man needs help, he needs friends and he needs support. The NFL needs to get of their collective asses and do something to help these guys.

New NBA Rules

I love this rule. I wish the NFL would do the same for all the whining WR's always begging for a flag when they miss a pass. Just shut up and play ball.

The Mick's 10 biggest taters

Back in the day when the Twins played out doors, they used to have an advertisement on the top of the scoreboard in right field. On TOP of the scoreboard they had this tree, which was an advertisement for a bank. Reggie Jackson came up to bat, and smacked the snot of out it. Not only did he hit the tree on top of the scoreboard, but the ball was still on the way UP when it hit the tree. It would have been way out into the parking lot if not for that tree.

Commentary on Zidane's gesture by Dany Laferrière

I admit to being one of those who could not understand Zidane's actions when it happened, but after reading this piece, I think I now understand. I think Zidane now sleeps better at night, knowing he ended his career on his terms. Excellent post, thank you.

Man says he's tired of being mistaken for MJ.

1. The dude looks nothing like Michael other than he is bald. 2. He's an idiot. 3. He's still an idiot.
