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.

Cubs Give Steve Bartman a World Series Ring: The Chicago Cubs gave a World Series ring today to Steve Bartman. "While no gesture can fully lift the public burden he has endured for more than a decade, we felt it was important Steve knows he has been and continues to be fully embraced by this organization. After all he has sacrificed, we are proud to recognize Steve Bartman with this gift today," owner Tom Ricketts said. Bartman responded with gratitude and said, "I am relieved and hopeful that the saga of the 2003 foul ball incident surrounding my family and me is finally over."

Ezekiel Elliott suspended by NFL

I wish the NFL would defer to the authorities on criminal allegations and not take action until a charge is filed. Nobody trusts Goodell to get something like this right or impose punishments equitably.

CFL Pick 'Em, Week Seven

This week, we come dangerously close to using math.

And I come dangerously close to using meth. My picks are terrible.

SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

I wonder what it means for MLS if lower-tier clubs in the U.S. start to be profitable because they can snap up young talent and make big bucks on player transfers.

It seems like it could be good for USMNT. More money in more teams means more American talent being developed.

Cubs Give Steve Bartman a World Series Ring

I love Bartman for his continued refusal to seek publicity or money off his infamy. Even in this great move by the Cubs, all we get is a statement.

Terrific rundown, Grum. As a Rangers fan I feel like buy-high, sell-low has always been a weapon in our arsenal.

Headline on CNN today: "NFLer retires before playing game with new team."

When I saw it, I laughed and told myself, "It's going to be the Jaguars. It's going to be the Jaguars."

It is.

How can you not love this franchise?

SportsFilter: The Wednesday Huddle

I've been thinking about adopting a new team in the Premiership next season after three seasons watching West Ham. Things were looking good for Everton with the Wayne Rooney signing, but they keep losing the players I liked. Ross Barkley is now part of the exodus.

I get an exact 17-point spread and fall further behind. Canada why hast thou forsaken me, eh?

DEMPSEY STRIKE TIES ALL-TIME MNT GOALS RECORD, CAPS USA'S 2-0 GOLD CUP SEMIFINAL WIN VS. COSTA RICA

The U.S. played well, but Tim Howard once again saved our bacon. Costa Rica played well enough to get a draw.

Landon Donovan's smile after Clint Dempsey tied his record was a nice moment. That kick was a work of art.

Joe Hart to West Ham on a season-long loan. Glad to see him back in England.

Roger Federer Wins 8th Wimbledon Championship

LeBron has been in the NBA Finals for seven straight years. It's an incredible feat.

Roger Federer Wins 8th Wimbledon Championship

Speaking from experience, I think Cilic's second set problem looked like a panic attack. He was moving like he wanted to be anywhere but in his own body. Your pulse races, you hyperventilate and your extremities get numb as you enter fight-or-flight mode.

If that's what happened, it's nothing short of amazing he was able to keep playing.
