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.

Packers Returner Ingeniously Exploits Out-of-Bounds Rule: In Sunday's game, Green Bay Packers kick returner Ty Montgomery made a sneaky use of an out-of-bounds rule, as former NFL director of officiating Mike Pereira explains. I don't think I've seen this done intentionally before.

Marlins Pitcher Jose Fernandez Dies in Boating Accident: Miami Marlins star pitcher Jose Fernandez died early Sunday in a boat crash off Miami Beach. He was 24. Fernandez, a former NL rookie of the year having his best season with 16 wins, was one of at least three people killed in the 3 a.m. accident involving a 30-foot boat. "They found a boat that was up against the jetties," Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Chief Todd Garofalo said. "They did do an initial search and they found three victims -- two on top of the water, one underneath the boat and they had unfortunately passed away."

SportsFilter's ESPN Fantasy Hockey Looking for Teams: Koharski's Donuts, this site's fantasy hockey league, is beginning its fourth season on ESPN in just a few weeks. It's a head-to-head league where teams face off each week in 10 rotisserie categories. A live draft is held the Sunday night before the season begins. A cash prize is awarded to the champion and the other three playoff teams. If you're interested in joining (or a returning owner), post here. Most owners are expected to return, but there should be at least 1-2 openings for new teams.

From Computer Game to Professional Football Analyst

This is great. I have a Football Manager-obsessed friend who keeps trying to pull me into the game.

The interviewer should have pressed him on the girlfriend issue, for his mom and dad's sake.

NFL Pick 'Em Week 4: Throw the Ball Jameis Edition

I'm not as committed to picking Jacksonville as you are, but I refuse to believe they're a team that will go 0-4, 0-5, 0-6, etc. I want the 9-win team I thought we were getting this year. If we fire a coach again and do any kind of tear down, it's too awful to contemplate.

Lots of carnage on blown locks.

The Jaguars/Colts game on Sunday starts at 9:30 a.m. Eastern because it's in London.

Sam Allardyce: Ex-England boss says entrapment has won

I love Big Sam, but I don't see how his job could've survived this scandal.

England has reached peak fail with this firing, though Allardyce leaves with the best winning record of a coach in the national team's history.

Marlins Pitcher Jose Fernandez Dies in Boating Accident

The Marlins played a mournful "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" as part of the Jose Fernandez tribute. I don't think I've heard that before.

Seeing Dee Gordon hit a home run and become overcome with emotion rounding the bases reminded me of losing a rec-league basketball teammate in his 20s a long time ago to a heart attack. Eight days later we decided to play instead of canceling another game, in his honor. We were still in shock and were quite terrible, but it helped.

RIP Arnold Palmer, 1929-2016

You beat me to this one. I gotta post my summary anyway for personal reasons:

Arnold Palmer, the favorite golfer of my late grandfather Glenn "Bill" Craker and millions of others he brought into a deep and abiding love of the sport, died Sunday at age 87. He won 62 PGA Tour titles, seven majors in seven years and had a career that spanned six decades. "What other people find in poetry, I find in the flight of a good drive," Palmer once said.

I think I'm headed to the World Golf Hall of Fame this week, which is by my good fortune close to where I live.

Cool. I'll give the returning owners a little while and then email you an invitation. Two owners retired after last season and the first season champ may want back in, so there should be at least one opening.

Marlins Pitcher Jose Fernandez Dies in Boating Accident

Absolutely tragic. He has to be one of the best players in baseball to be lost while in his prime.

He posted an Instagram photo five days ago indicating a baby is on the way.
