Sports Bio

My favorite teams are the Cubs, Tigers, Lions, Panthers, Hurricanes, Sri Lanka, and Kings XI Punjab.
My most memorable sporting event that I attended was Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals in 2006 when the Hurricanes won it all. I will never forget a second of that game.

How deep does the rivalry run between your favorite team vs your team's archenemy? If you're a Michigan fan and Ohio State delivers a crushing loss to your side in football, do you hold a mock funeral for your team? In Pakistan, if they get hammered by India, you betcha they hold a funeral for their team.

I think LeBron deserves *some* credit. He didn't lose Curry until after Curry reappeared.

Rock Climber Scales El Capitan with No Gear

Good for him? I'm glad he made it without harm because all I could think about was the poor schmucks at the base of El Capitan who would have experienced a horror show if he had not been successful. Or the poor park rangers that would have had to clean up what was left of his body had he not been successful. I say this out of personal experience of seeing/hearing some poor tortured soul throw himself from high atop a high rise in Illinois one Christmas season a long time ago. It took a very long time to get that sound of the impact out of my head.

The 35th America's Cup

...and how mind bendingly fast those foiling cats go.

The guys calling the action on NCBSN were talking about g forces that the sailors were experiencing in their turns.

I was so shocked because the last time I payed attention to the America's Cup was when the boats looked liked boats.

If you're in the US of A and have cable/satellite TV, you can watch the races on the NBC Sport channel.

Although, if you're going to grant a franchise to Duluth, you may as well give it to Thunder Bay since they are in Canada. Has Thunder Bay ever had a CFL team?

I'm not a doctor or a pharmacologist or a scientician of any stripe, but Tiger looks high as hell on opioids in his latest mugshot. Makes sense given the string of back surgeries he's gone through over the past few years. To hell with golf for the time being, here's hoping he gets the help he obviously needs.

Legendary Sportswriter Frank Deford Dies

Yep, late period crankiness aside, I always looked forward to his NPR segments and loved running into a piece by him online.

And, boy, The National, what a great publication that was.
