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.

NCAA Coaches, Adidas Executive Face Charges: Across three complaints, two broad schemes were alleged. One involved bribing four assistant coaches -- at Arizona, Auburn, Oklahoma State and Southern California, all programs in the so-called Power 5 conferences of college sports -- to persuade players to send business to certain financial advisers once they turned professional. The other involved efforts to secretly funnel money from Adidas to three players and their families in exchange for the players' commitments to play at two Adidas-sponsored college programs and to later sign sponsorship deals with the company once they turned pro.

A new and a more highly recognized coach to get swept up in this scandal is Louisville's Rick Pitino.

NFL Pick 'Em Week 11: Jerry Jones is Detrimental Edition

5) Drew Pearson's NFL Draft speech

Listen, I hate the Cowboys as much as anyone, but that speech was amazing. The only thing that could've made it better was if he declared, "...with the 60th pick in the second round the Dallas Cowboys select wide receiver from Tulsa, ME!" and then jumped into the sea of Eagles fans

SportsFilter: The Friday Huddle

Chancellor Lee Adams will celebrate his 18th birthday on Thursday, November 16, 2017. Chancellor Lee is the son of former Carolina Panthers wide receiver Rae Carruth who is imprisoned for masterminding the murder of Chancellor Lee's mother Cherica Adams. Chancellor Lee was born prematurely and has cerebral palsy and permanent brain damage due to his traumatic birth.

This has my emotions running at full steam on many different levels right now. But the most important part of this story is Chancellor turning 18 years old.

Yeah, opel70 caught my meaning.

Looking through the myriad of NFL rules on when a play is declared dead, I don't see anything about "giving up on the play." The closest thing that comes to it is when the player with the ball slides feet first as if he's sliding into second base. Then the play is dead without needing to be touched by an opposing player.

And going back to what opel70 mentioned, this is completely on the defensive player for not merely reaching down with a single finger and touching Mr Hilton.
