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.

Cleveland Indians Advance to World Series: The Cleveland Indians last won a World Series in 1948 and last reached one in 1997. For game 5 of the ALCS this year, manager Terry Francona improbably asked Ryan Merritt to take the mound -- a rookie with one career start and 11 total innings pitched. He kept the Toronto Blue Jays scoreless through 4 1/3 innings, Francona handed the game to his formidable bullpen and the World Series opens in Title Town, Ohio, on Tuesday.

The rules are the same as this year's NFL Pick 'Em -- unlimited slam dunks.

For those who haven't played before, this is less of a time commitment than the NFL. There are usually 6 games a week, with a few as low as 4 or as high as 10, and they occur mostly from Tuesday to Thursday. The game week runs from Tuesday to Monday.

The game is running on a new web application I'm also using for the NFL. Scoring updates will be much faster.

Had trouble logging in on my phone. I haven't looked at scores, but if I'm too late for game 1 I understand.

Cleveland Indians Advance to World Series

A photographer told the story of last night's outcome in a bat flip.

I'm pretty sure he was killed after taking this, so props to him.

Cleveland Indians Advance to World Series

I try to like Cleveland, but seeing Chief Wahoo kills it. The team broke a commitment to phase out that odious symbol by using him on caps in these playoffs.

I thought Toronto would increase my bitterness by winning the ALCS. I figured they would rough up Cleveland's starters. What happened to the bats?

SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

SportsFilter is back online but I'm continuing to test things. Yesterday I accidentally rewrote 300,000 file permissions. The only way to fix it was to wipe the server and start over.

Fared well in the hurricane. The house was still there when I returned, something a lot of my neighbors couldn't say. Where was your flooded old home, Jags?

I didn't make picks last week after Thursday, dropping from third to fourth from last. I brought food poisoning home from the hurricane evacuation.

I'm thinking about locking everything this week. If I have a good week I can make up some lost ground. I'd be a broke degenerate gambler.

I didn't know the Toronto radio announcer won't say "Indians". Nice!

When I was in elementary school in the '70s, I had this pattern on a comforter, sheets and a lamp.
