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.

Team USA wins gold over Canada in the IIHF Women's World Championship: Hilary Knight scored at 10:17 of overtime to give the Americans a 3-2 win against Canada in the championship game in front of a sold-out crowd at USA Hockey Arena. "Wait, what?! I thought they were going to go on strike?" An agreement was struck just a day before the tournament started. "But how did the deal get done?" Good question, and here's your answer.

Cubs Give Steve Bartman a World Series Ring

Good for the Cubs for doing this and excellent for Bartman for receiving it and it making him happy.

Being a man of science, rcade will most assuredly choose Crystal Palace as the right and proper 11 to root for.

We hate the Brighton and Millwall scum,
We are South London's number one

See? Science!

My ear to the ground updates* on the local professional sporting franchises in Raleigh:

- the deal to sell the Hurricanes has been signed by both sides and is merely awaiting the okilly dokilly from the NHL.

- Steve Malik, the guy that owns North Carolina Football Club (NCFC) threw a big meet 'n greet for the head honchos of the MLS last week and presented his downtown stadium plan. By all reports, it was a smashing success as lots of people showed, got drunk, and got rowdy. I know a few people that went and they had lots of fun and were generally impressed by the whole thing and are excited to get an MLS team in town. NOT SO FAST, MY FRIENDS! I don't think the stadium plan has even gone through a preliminary process by the city/state/whoever needs to sign off on such things. Also, a *downtown* stadium? I don't see how the downtown area can handle game night traffic. It can barely handle the traffic that is has now. The main issue being the awful state of public transportation in the city. It's just a bus system that is, at best, a complete joke, and at worst, an actual disservice to the communities that could benefit from a good public transportation system. But I digress, and it may not even be an issue since the present version of NCFC can't draw even 5000 fans per game. Compare that to FC Cincinnati (that is also looking to upgrade to the MLS) who draw almost 20,000 per game.

* - no proof on anything here, just my opinion with updates from friends that have connections to the power base in the city.

The bid for an MLS team in Raleigh escalated with the reveal of a stadium plan. (The Raleigh News & Observer tempts Betteridge's Law of Headlines here)

Well, obviously, as a rookie in the bigs, I would have to go with John Fogerty's Centerfield or his other big hit, Who Let the Dogs Out, but as my jersey sales went up, I go ease into Ornette's magnum opus by using a short clip starting at 55", but as I got better and better at the plate and became a bigger and bigger star, I would eventually insist on the playing the entire song before before stepping into the batter's box.

I have finally found my walk up song. I would be a .500 hitter, no question.

University Rochester football player kidnapped and tortured for 40 hours

This story gave me nightmares last night. Those poor guys, I don't know how one can come back from that.

This is like if the guy that made Saw remade a Hitchcock film.
