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.

Bears 1936 Throwbacks Shine Light on NFL's Segregated Era: The Chicago Bears will be wearing 1936 throwback uniforms this Sunday as part of the team’s season-long centennial celebration. ... That means the black players currently on the Bears roster, including Hicks, Trevathan and Burton, will be the first African-Americans ever permitted to wear this uniform on the field.

Russian NHL Star Artemi Panarin Has Opinions: ...very strong opinions.

Artemi Panarin is one of the most dynamic hockey players in the world. Nicknamed Breadman (because of the similarity of his last name to the popular Panera Bread bakery chain) he also has a reputation of one of the most sincere, charismatic, likeable players in the NHL. Recently, Panarin has signed with the New York Rangers after refusing better deals from other teams. But earlier this week, Artemi did something truly unthinkable: he utterly trashed Russia’s president Vladimir Putin and his regime in an extremely candid interview with the Vsemu Golovin Youtube channel.

England win Cricket World Cup: This is a match that was all New Zealand behind their incredible bowling and ever better fielding, but England's bats did just enough to tie the match and force a super over where they put 15 runs. New Zealand chased it and it came down to needing 2 runs on the last ball. They literally fell just inches away from getting that many to win, but alas for them, they couldn't get it. Amazing match!

Passan: How a 19-year-old prospect is turning the MLB draft upside down: 19 year old prospect, Carter Stewart, has opted to begin his professional baseball career in Japan instead of making the long, hard slog through MLB's minor league system. Why? Seven million reasons why. It would be interesting if the professional Japanese baseball league were to loosen their rules on foreign players especially if the teams are willing to put up millions of dollars to top prospects around the world.

As of right now, where would you rank Mike Trout in the all-time best baseball player list? First? Top five? Top ten? Top 25?

I've been obsessed with Jerry Jeff Walker lately. It's dawned on me that I've probably lived too much of my adult life as if I was in a JJW song. I like to think that our old-timers here not only saw him play live back in the '70s but also jammed with him on stage.

John Prine, I've got you in my sights.

Houston Astros accused of electronically stealing signs in 2017

I have a feeling that most of other teams' outrage is over the fact that the Astros were so damn blatant about it. Whistling really loudly? Beating the shit out of things in the dugout with a bat? I mean, at least try to keep your sign stealing a secret.

This explanation of a scene described in the article is probably the most damning example of the cheating.

Love me some Jomboy videos.

Was making predictions about the State/Clemson game with a neighbor yesterday and my initial bold take was: 62 - 10. We had a good laugh over the thought of State being able to put up that many points on Clemson's D. 10! Hilarious. I later revised that down to 3, but I should've stuck to my guns. I was close
