Sports Bio

Anyone that's read my posts knows I'm a diehard Detroit homer. The most memorable sporting event I've attended was game 4 of the 1997 Stanley Cup Finals. I had already been very lucky scoring playoff tickets that year, seeing game 1 of round one vs. St. Louis, the triple-OT game in Detroit vs. Anaheim, and watching the Wings paste Colorado 6-0 on home ice. But to see my life-long dream of my Detroit Red Wings finally put an end to the 42-year curse was better than any other moment in my sports life...and yes, I cried like a five-year-old girl with a skinned knee when Stevie Y. finally got to hoist the Cup...

SportsFilter: The Wednesday Huddle

grum, if I'm reading that right, it's at least partially impossible. Seattle can't get exactly 1 win against Houston, and Houston get only 2 wins against the Angels.

Packers Returner Ingeniously Exploits Out-of-Bounds Rule

Saw this live. Kudos to Montgomery for the heads up play and knowledge of the rules. That said, any rule that makes it possible for a player to consciously force a penalty on the other team like that is a bad rule.

There's an easy way to keep guys from showboating home runs...don't give them up. If pitchers can fist pump and hoot and holler after strikeouts without repercussions, there's no reason why a batter can't watch the ball he just crushed...and the fact that AL pitchers don't bat makes them throwing at guys for stuff like this the ultimate in cowardice. Make your teammates take the brunt of your hurt feelings...chicken shit...

SportsFilter: The Sunday Huddle

Thanks, both of you. I've had a lot of free time on my hands lately, and one of the things I fill the time with on occasion is sports highlights on YouTube. I noticed this a while back, but it never occurred to me to bring it up here until you posted those videos...

grum, I've asked this different places, and nobody seems to know the definite answer. Why do balls hit in Rogers Centre sound so different than other parks? Is it acoustics? Different microphones? The Canadian exchange rate on sound waves?
