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.

Al Kaline, Detroit Tigers legend, dies at age 85: Even though I grew up many hours north of Detroit, our town's Little League teams would make an annual pilgrimage down south to see a Tigers game. I remember one of my brothers catching an Al Kaline foul ball. He eventually got it autographed when some of the Tigers players/ex-players made it up our way for an autographing session one winter.

Rest In Power, Mr. Tiger.

Everything to know about the Korea Baseball Organization, which hopes to start season by early May: If there is good news for seamheads, it's that another league will attempt to resume play over the coming weeks. The Korea Baseball Organization, described in the past as delivering the "wildest, most outlandish" version of the sport, is hoping to kick off its season in late April or early May.

Oh please, oh please, some sporting network here in the USA pick this up. I need my baseball, any baseball!

Blockbuster Trade between the Dodgers and Red Sox (and the Twins): Dodgers Acquire Mookie Betts, David Price in Deal With Red Sox. It's the trade of the century! Or, maybe not?

Al Kaline, Detroit Tigers legend, dies at age 85

Howard: we always sat along side first base. We got to see Mark Fidrych pitch one year. That was something that got us kids all sorts of jazzed up for the game. I remember that being a very loooooong ride to Detroit.

Record-Breaking NFL Kicker Tom Dempsey Dies

Of course it would be against the Lions. /sigh

' <<< that's a football flying through the air after being kicked

Tom Dempsey was one of the first sports names that I learned because of his record and his physical makeup. I was sad when his record was broken. I mean, good for Matt Prater and all since that seems like an impossible distance, but one of my first sports memories got busted on that day a few years ago.

That's pretty good. I don't hear sneakers squeaking on the floor, though.

Oof. Did the old Garden have A/C? Honest question. The very first place that I ever lived in that had AC wasn't until I moved down here to Raleigh when I was 29 years old.

Hey! That's neat. I've never seen that before.

Trivia Question:

What is the highest amount of goals scored in the NHL in a season that matches that player's jersey number? (no subscribers to The Athletic are allowed to answer this question)

Well shit. John Prine has been diagnosed with Covid-19. This from his official Twitter account.

And here's Jason Isbell covering Prine's Hello in There. The pollen is really bad in this room right now. /sniff

That's really cool, beaver. Good on you, brother.

Even if someone sneezes/coughs in your food while they prepare it, you won't catch the coronavirus? I mean, cool, but my mind is blown over that one. Thanks for sharing that link

Clean those groceries as soon as you get home with them! I just did this with a buttload of groceries and it wasn't too much of a pain in the ass. And yes, I even cleaned the produce.

While I was at the store, the wife cleaned the kitchen and did the clean/dirty divide for me.

Plus, it was nice to hear that pleasant Michigan brogue again. I get homesick, no matter where in Michigan the person is from. The farther north you get, the more pronounced the accent, but hearing just a little one is good enough for me. Sometimes I listen to interviews with Iggy just to hear that fine accent

Harlem Globetrotters' legend Curly Neal dies at age 77

Mike Greenberg's short, but nice commemoration of Curly Neal.

Also, I remember them coming to perform even in my tiny little Northern Michigan village back in the '70s. So much fun
