Sports Bio

I follow the teams from Dallas-Fort Worth because I grew up with them, but I've adopted the Jacksonville Jaguars, the only pro team my new hometown is ever likely to get. The most memorable sporting event I attended live was game 6 of the NBA Western Conference finals in 1988 at Reunion Arena -- Mavericks vs. Lakers -- when Mark Aguirre and his prodigious caboose received half the game MVP award, and the 17,007 fans in attendance received the other half.

Bucks Player Almost Shoots in Wrong Basket: I love the reactions of the announcers, coach Jason Kidd and courtside fans after Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders comes tantalizingly close to eternal sports infamy by driving with the ball to the wrong basket.

Giants Win World Series: The San Francisco Giants are World Series champions for the third time in five seasons after defying the odds for a road team in Game 7 and beating the Kansas City Royals 3-2 at Kauffman Stadium. Michael Morse gave the Giants that lead with a fourth-inning single and the San Francisco bullpen, most notably Madison Bumgarner, pitched 7 1/3 shutout innings to deliver another parade.

Denver Broncos Fan Disappears During Game: A 53-year-old man attending his first Denver Broncos game with his son and two friends disappeared during halftime and has been missing for four days. Paul Kitterman told his son Jarrod they'd meet up back at their seats when Jarrod went to the restrooms at halftime. Paul Kitterman never showed up and has been gone since. He had $50 in cash, no credit cards and no phone. "He's absolutely nowhere to be found," said friend Tia Bakke, who attended the game with him. "It's been the longest, [most] miserable three days of our lives."

Minor League Hockey Player Suffers Gruesome Cut from Skate: A minor league hockey game in Peoria, Illinois, came to a halt Saturday after a player fell on an opponent's skate and suffered a deep and potentially life threatening cut to his thigh. Trainers and players from both teams raced to help Huntsville Havoc center Justin Cseter, bringing towels and fashioning a tourniquet out of a broken hockey stick. Dave Eminian of the Peoria Journal-Star penned this memorable lead: "The Peoria Rivermen were gaining momentum, had just scored to build a 2-1 lead over the Huntsville Havoc on Saturday at Carver Arena. And then hockey gave way to horror."

PGA Exec Calls Ian Poulter 'Little School Girl': PGA of America President Ted Bishop, upset by criticism of past Ryder Cup captains Nick Faldo and Tom Watson by Ian Poulter in his new book, called Poulter a "lil girl" and "little school girl" in social media posts. Bishop wrote on a Facebook post that athletes with "lesser records or accomplishments in a sport never criticized the icons" and then said of Poulter, "Really? Sounds like a little school girl squealing during recess. C'mon man!" He later deleted the posts and apologized. Poulter's response: "Is being called a 'lil girl' meant to be derogatory or a put down That's pretty shocking and disappointing, especially coming from the leader of the PGA of America."

Tony Steward is healthy and finally getting his shot at Clemson as a senior after being the most highly recruited linebacker prospect in 2010. I met Steward when my son was a freshman at the same high school. He was a good kid who called me and other adults "sir" and had a reputation of looking out for bullied kids.

Giants Win World Series

... if people could root against a 19-0 Patriots season or any more success from the Sox simply out of spite/jealousy, I'm free to root against any other dynasties as well.

I rooted against the Patriots perfect season because they kept crushing my hopes, week after week, and it was a pretty thrilling run. If I had known they'd actually lose the Super Bowl I might have done things differently.

The Giants are one of the great modern dynasties now. Credit to them for that. I was worried for the Royals when Kung Fu Panda was so loose before his first at-bat that he winked at the camera.

I hated Yost's decision to sacrifice bunt Escobar in the fifth with Infante on first and no outs. I know that has been Royals baseball, but it gave Bumgarner a free out when he had just come in and wasn't in his groove yet.

Denver Broncos Fan Disappears During Game

Good news, but if this was something he did on his own, he has some 'splainin to do. A lot of police effort was expended in the search for him.

Dallas is going to wish it had that one back. The schedule gets tougher now, with the exception of the London game against Jacksonville.

There was a funny moment in West Ham's 2-1 shocker over Man City. Enner Valencia flew into the crowd after making the pass that led to the Hammers' first goal by Morgan Amalfitano. This was the Man City end, so Valencia was caught by their fans several rows deep. Amalfitano decided to hop the boards and join him, putting his hands on two of those fans to get his balance. This was not well-received by the fans.

In other news, is this really kick-it-long-and-pray West Ham?

DeMarco Murray Ties Jim Brown Record

If the Cowboys offensive line keeps playing like it is, the team will have success with Murray's backups too and can use them more.

A first round exit would be a nice finish for a team I expected to go no more than 4-12 this year.

Jarrod Dyson getting caught stealing last night raises a question: Can the player making a tag push the sliding runner off the bag? To me, it looks more like a push by Jonathan Schoop than an overslide by Dyson. I thought it was weird the TBS crew never even suggested that possibility.

J.J. Watt was unbelievable on the pick-6 last night. No defensive end should be able to run that fast.
