Sports Bio

Brazilian soccername: Binhosa

Fan of:
- Liverpool FC
- USC Trojans (class of '83, except I had no class while in attendance)
- Original SJ Earthquakes, RIP
- Barcelona FC
- SJ Sharks
- 49ers
- NY Giants

Baseball seriously sucks, it's boring, they could shut down MLB tomorrow and I'd be happy especially since the channel that broadcasts the SF Giants games is a Fox affiliate and their games regularly screw up my viewing schedule.

I won the 2005 NFL Playoff Pool

Arsene Wenger: Arsenal 'mentally collapsed' against Bayern Munich: Bayern Munich 5-1 Arsenal. Can Wenger keep his job this Summer when by his own admission his team are losing and dropping points due to mental errors and poor preparation, or will another Top 4 finish make him think "if I put in on more year we will take the big prize?"

How the Chicago Bears became NFL's most untroubled losers: This season will be the ninth of the last 10 in which the Bears have missed the playoffs. And yet there seems little urgency to correct matters.

NFL team owners approve Raiders' move to Vegas

As ESPN late night Sports Center talker said last night, cixelsyd, the NFL is a business and as a business there was no way they were leaving $750M of government money on the table. Raiders were the lowest grossing team in the league, taking in about 40-45% of what the Cowboys did and Vegas is much more likely to get the bottom line closer to Dallas.

Hereís Why the US Womenís National Hockey Team Is Going on Strike

Hockey is on the decline, commercially, and if US Hockey were smart not only would they pay the women a reasonable wage, they'd promote the heck out of it. Look how well that's worked for women's soccer (though of course TPTB in the sport are also not paying the women what they should).

Saw that this morning, struck me as very odd tone and poor journalism. Not something I'd expect from his past pieces nor the Guardian.

The Guardian on NHL relocation: Which NHL teams are moving? A guide to hockey's latest relocation rumors. Who knew? Despite all the constant rumors and discontent, the NHL is actually as stable as any of the USAian/Canadian major leagues.
