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 16: Go Mavericks Edition : This week's games are up for selection in the Pace Mannion NBA Pick 'Em. There are a whopping 10 national TV games on ESPN, TNT and ABC, starting with two tonight. None involve my Dallas Mavericks, a team that is "quickly climbing out of the Western Conference toilet and into the group of bad teams contending for the eight seed," observers Patrick Redford of Deadspin.

The Greatest Comeback in NFL History: "Only Tom Brady can outdo Tom Brady. Brady cemented his legacy as the greatest to ever play the game Sunday night in spectacular fashion, staging the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history to win his record fifth ring. Batted around like a tackling dummy through the first three quarters, Brady led the New England Patriots on four consecutive scoring drives to erase a 25-point deficit and beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in overtime." -- Nancy Armour, USA Today

Switch to Chicago over Cleveland by 4. No LeBron.

The Table Never Lies

As a Sheffield Wednesday fan I've been questioning the logic of having so many youth players. In four years I've yet to see one become a significant first team contributor (Liam Palmer would be an exception but that happened slightly before my time).

I like what Brentford is doing with a second-chance squad. When you see the players who fall off the map at the top two levels of English football, it seems like some of them could still be making a contribution. I've been amazed that Kevin Nolan didn't find another gig after West Ham dropped him in 2015 at age 32. He's now player-coaching in League Two.

The Mavericks lost two games this week to flex scheduling: Dallas/Minnesota was replaced with Boston/Toronto on Friday and Dallas/Miami with Indiana/Houston on Monday. There also was a flex to replace Toronto/New York with Milwaukee/Cleveland on the same day.

Ufez: Thanks for the offer to help on the NBA Pick 'Em. I've got that covered, but if you have time to do some or all of the Super Bowl prop bets that would help me finish that contest while I'm traveling. (If not I'll likely post it Friday.)

Thanks, everyone.

VHL is a tough prognosis. My two siblings and I had a 50 percent chance of getting it and none of us did, a 1-in-8 longshot that's so fortunate it is humbling. Other relatives weren't so lucky.

The Rangers winning the Series without dad will be bittersweet if it happens. But if Jon Daniels ever gets fired I'll be throwing the party he would have thrown, even though I like Daniels.

Dad got so fired up about Daniels I'd sometimes mention him just to see dad burst into flame. You could roast marshmallows on his rage..

My dad Roger Cadenhead died yesterday at 70 after a long battle with Von Hippel-Lindau syndrome. Mine was a childhood of baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Chevrolet, catching Texas Rangers games with him at Arlington Stadium in the 1970s. The memories are as good as the teams were bad.
