I'm too lazy to make a banner that shows I beat all y'alls asses in the World Baseball Classis pick 'em game. And I beat the m-effin crap out of that m-effin Baseball Prospectus

I'm the co-champion! In yer face SpoFi!

Raiders Stadium Backers To Las Vegas: Give Us $750 Million, Or Else: ... Rich old baby Mark Davis, truly evil plutocrat Sheldon Adelson, and Las Vegasís scummy sheen have all combined to create one of the most abhorrent cast of characters weíve ever seen attached to a stadium financing project. If anyone can finally convince American sports fans and politicians that publicly funded stadiums are a massive scam, itís these goons.

The Indian Premier League returns tomorrow, April 8th.: Like cherry blossoms in Japan every spring, the arrival of IPL is eagerly awaited by many. The colours are more garish, the scene anything but peaceful. Administrators are averse to halting the cricketing treadmill and so, this year, the IPL starts just six days after the World T20. The players might want rest, but they cannot afford to ask for time off because millions are at stake. And so IPL 9 begins on Saturday in Mumbai.

March Madness 2016: Printable NCAA tournament bracket: Well, actually, the printable version of the bracket is here. The ACC has two #1 seeds this year, Carolina (who won the ACC tournament for the first time since 2008) and Virginia (who lost to Carolina in the ACC championship game). The other two #1s are Oregon and Kansas. I set up a bracket group here. Group name: SportsFilter. Password: 1SpoFi!

Cleveland Indians Advance to World Series

Well, good for the Cleveland baseball club. If the Cubs somehow Cubs up their post-season, I'll be rooting for the Cleveland Citizens of the First Nations.

Me last night:
Wife goes upstairs
I tune in the Hurricanes game just in time to see Edmonton go up 3-0.
I switched over to the Cubs game just in time to see the Dodgers go up 4-0.
I go upstairs mumbling how sports is dumb and only dumb people like sports.

Nice autodraft. Both of the goalies it picked for me are in the IR. HA!

Do you see any team Australia test cricket jerseys for sale?

No, the white test jersey. Like this. I just love their national flag and it's right on the jersey. Although, I gotta say, this ODI jersey looks pretty good.

My must-have jersey right now is a Sri Lanka test jersey.

Thanks grum!

'm 5'11", 170lbs, and my shoulders are a bit broader than expected for my size. I wear a "L" Jays jersey from 5 years ago quite comfortably, but if I was just a LITTLE bit taller or broader, it might be considered "restricting". I wear a t-shirt underneath it (for comfort) and have no problems.

That's what tells me to go with the size that I should probably go with. I'm a tiny bit shorter and a kinda bit bigger around, so I'll go with the XL especially since I'll be wearing a t-shirt under the jersey.

I have my eye on this.

Question for you team jersey wearers:
I'm thinking of getting a Cubs jersey and want to know about sizing. If you wear an XL or L or M or whatever size t-shirt, would you get the same size jersey? Are they comparable sizes or are baseball jerseys larger than t-shirts? For example, is a size L baseball jersey the same as an L sized t-shirt or XL sized t-shirt?
I know it seems like a weird question, but before I spend a fair amount of coinage on something like this, I need to know about the sizing. Thanks!

Has there been a draft yet? The season starts today. I suppose, though, that it really doesn't matter when our draft is compared to when the season starts.

I love this feeling: Opening day of a sporting season and my team is still technically in the hunt for the championship trophy.

I guess you would just use a stencil style font for that project.

I...don't know what font that is.
