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.

Well, too late now, but Justin Verlander had been throwing a one-hit game through 7 and Bartolo "Freakin'" Colon was tossing a perfecto until the 8th.

Jesus and Muhammad are cool with each other. I'm sure that Muhammad wishes that Jesus would stop telling people he's God and that he came back to life, but, overall, they're cool. I can see Moses (in the style of al-Khidr) having to come between them everyone once in a while to tell them "knock it off, you clowns."

Nice. Reminds me of a Braves game in the early '80s when one of the few souls in Fulton County Stadium could be clearly heard yelling at the Braves' pitcher, "DON'T WORRY MOE, LARRY AND CURLY ARE RIGHT BEHIND YOU!"

My only sports related moment during my long weekend in eastern NC was driving through Hertford, Catfish Hunter's hometown. I feel kinda special right now.

(I highly suggest spending a few nights in historic Edenton, NC. The town has done an outstanding job of preserving many of the 18th century houses there.)

That's one thing that us Hurricanes fans have going for us: new majority owner. He's already showed Ron Francis the door and coach Peters better be next. As far as I'm concerned, everyone on Edwards Mill Road can be hauled off to the nearest hog lagoon.

Like Johansson said, eventually he ends someone's career.

Like Bertuzzi did? Remember how he got punished by profiting even more with new NHL contracts?

And what does the Cubs' Ian Happ do with the very first pitch of the season? And now, some dude has to go jump in a lake.
