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.

NFL Coach Buddy Ryan Dies: Buddy Ryan, the former NFL coach and coordinator who was as famous for being cantankerous as for building defenses, has died. He was 82. Ryan got his first coaching job with the New York Jets in 1968. As defensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears he created the 46 Defense that was key in the team's 1985 Super Bowl-winning season. He went on to coach the Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals. "People ask all the time, 'Why didn't you guys win another Super Bowl?'" Bears player Steve McMichael said. "Well, Buddy Ryan went to Philadelphia. Period." Ryan also fathered two NFL coaches, Rex and Rob.

Is there a logic to when CFL games are on an ESPN channel and when they're only on ESPN3? I want my RedBlackTV.

Euro 2016 Pick 'Em Champion: Bender

Congratulations to Bender, the only player who predicted a Portugal victory. That pick had to be looking grim when Ronaldo went out early.

Points were hard to come by in the final. Pepe robbed many of yellow card glory.

Did people like the smaller point increases in the Euro, the larger ones in the Copa, or no point increases at all for picking winners from round to round?

Some players have picked 4 yellow card players instead of 3. I will ignore the fourth pick, so if you want to change your list please do so forthwith post haste.

Euro 2016 Pick 'Em: Final

That graphic looks like 32 total shots and 13 on goal/target. So we're agreed that the metric is on target shots?

Correct.

Clarification: If a player draws two yellow cards in the match, will they get 35 points (5+5+25), or just 30 points (5+25).

35.

First CFL tie in 7 years. I believe that should trigger Oprah rules: You get a point, you get a point, you get a point!

The extra day of rest and home-field advantage should balance out.

I'm on a roll lately. A pity I have to make more picks. The contest should stop now and declare a victor.
