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.

NBA Pick 'Em Week 19: Coach Yourself Edition: There are seven national NBA games on the tube this week, beginning with two tonight on TNT and ending with two on ABC and ESPN on Sunday. In the Pace Mannion, NoMich expands a first-place lead to 31 by scoring 28 while everyone else was 11 or worse. Howard_T keeps second at 453 and I move into third. Remember when evaluating Golden State that the team is no longer coached by Steve Kerr.

NBA Pick 'Em Week 18: Break Up Cleveland Edition: There's a light schedule of national NBA games this week ahead of All Star Weekend, with five games beginning with Cavs/Thunder on TNT tomorrow. The Pace Mannion NBA Pick 'Em has a new leader, NoMich, who is 8 ahead of Howard_T and 23 over former leader Ufez Jones. NoMich wins the week too with 36. Make your picks and watch out for the new-look Cavaliers.

Carlos Cordeiro Wins U.S. Soccer Election: The new president of U.S. Soccer is Carlos Cordeiro, who won a third-round vote over Kathy Carter Saturday in Orlando. He was Sunil Gulati's second-in-command so this is not exactly a sign of big changes after the U.S. men's crushing failure to make the World Cup.

Jason Kelce, Ladies and Gentlemen: No one has ever seen a Super Bowl parade speech like the one Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Jason Kelce gave today.

Isaiah Thomas Traded for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance: The Cleveland Cavaliers have traded Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye and a protected first-round pick in 2018 to the Los Angeles Lakers for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance. Thomas only played 15 games for the Cavs. The trade gives the Lakers $46.9 million in cap room. But wait, there's more: The Cavs traded Dwyane Wade to the Miami Heat for a protected second-round pick and acquired Rodney Hood and George Hill in a three-way deal with the Utah Jazz and Sacramento Kings, giving up Iman Shumpert and a 2020 second-round pick to the Kings and Jae Crowder and Derrick Rose from Cleveland to the Jazz.

Isaiah Thomas Traded for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance

I don't follow the inner dynamics at Cleveland. I figured that people are OK playing with him as long as they can handle not being treated like the top dog and don't mind an unofficial player-coach who is also an unofficial player-GM.

ESPN is saying that the move is great for L.A. because it means they can make a play for LeBron and Paul George in the off-season.

I am glad I ignored LeBron's advice and watched the Cavs on TV last night. What a game winner.

Me too.

If Dallas/Fort Worth counts, the four bigs plus TCU in football and basketball is possible.

UNT should have been invited to the SWC when Hayden Fry was the coach in the 1970s. In the alternate universe where that happens, it is possible.

SportsFilter 2016-17 NFL Playoff Pick 'Em Champion: tron7

Congrats, tron7!

The reason there are two prizes being awarded is because both tron7 and rumple picked themselves to win, getting either 5 or 0 more points as a result and thus either winning or losing.

I am sorry this was not posted last year. I had a good reason for being late -- I sadly lost my dad over Super Bowl weekend -- but never getting back to the contest was absurd.

The prize was supposed to be an NFL End Zone Rush T-shirt, but those are no longer being sold. A gift card is being substituted.

I sent you an email, tahoemoj. I believe we need to receive updates periodically on the life-changing experience that wearing these pants doubtlessly brings.

Super Bowl 0x34

No knock on the guy, but if he plays until he's 45, it's going to look terrible.

The Patriots are a great team, but they need a better run game to continue the dynasty. It can't all be on Brady's arm.

Super Bowl 0x34

Malcolm Butler's last-second benching is a bizarre move that will hang around Bill Belicheck's neck forever when this Super Bowl loss is discussed. He played 97.8% of the team's snaps this season and wasn't good enough to even put on the field tonight?
