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

Sam Allardyce: Ex-England boss says entrapment has won: Big Sam heads overseas after being filmed telling a couple of "Far East businessmen" how to get around third party ownership rules. Plus making fun of Roy Hodgson's speech impediment and Roy's assistant Gary Neville. Not sure which but one of those things got him fired after 67 days in charge? Sam says he was foolish but entrapped. Was this really a firing offense?

Baylor fires Art Briles over criminal coverups: Details are still a bit thin but apparently Coach Briles protected multiple players on his Baylor football team from sexual assault cases. Baylor President and Chancellor Ken Starr is now just Chancellor, athletic director Ian McCaw has been sanctioned and placed on probation but Briles' assistant coaches all remain in place, at least for now, including Kendall Briles. The details are nauseating so I'll leave them out of the post.

Premier League Fantasy 2015-16 final results: Congratulations to Red Loop, who easily outpaced Holden for this year's title. Sadly, it's another Europa League finish for myself while third and fourth went to the colorfully-named Tuscaloosa Dumplings and Lovren's Clown Shoes.

LA Rams Trade to Acquire 1st Pick in NFL Draft: The Los Angeles Rams have received the first overall pick in this year's NFL Draft in a trade with the Tennessee Titans, giving up a first round pick this year at No. 15; two second-round picks and a third round pick this year; and a first- and third-round pick in 2017. The Rams get the first pick and a fourth- and sixth-round pick this year. The move makes it appear likely the Rams will begin their return to Southern California with either Carson Wentz or Jared Goff as their quarterback. The trade could have been made out of concern the Cleveland Browns would take the Rams' preferred choice of quarterback at No. 2.

SportsFilter: The Friday Huddle

I found a Rebel Sports shop at lunch time but they were totally short on Glory gear. Seems odd since the season just started 10 days ago but the only thing in stock was a generic polo shirt. Lots of other club gear (Fremantle Dockers, English and Spanish soccer clubs). Didn't see an Australia test cricket jersey either, just Socceroos gear.

Will keep looking.

I can't believe not a single one of you picked the 49ers this week! I mean, you were all correct in picking the Bills although no one had the right margin (neener neener), but still!

I'm sorry but that blown field goal placement with 2:00 left by Chargers punter Kaster was just sad and captures about everything going wrong for the team so far this season.

Teddy Bridgewater Tears ACL, Will Miss Season

I wonder if its a matter of degree. Athlete takes hits of different types which individually have a small impact on the ligament and then there's the last hit that puts him or her over the line. That is, that tears the ligament. I know this is the case with lower back pain, everything is fine with the nerve compressed up to a certain amount and one day it gets compressed just abit more--boom, agony!

Raiders Stadium Backers To Las Vegas: Give Us $750 Million, Or Else

NFL franchise owners are by definition extremely rich, if not billionaires, and regardless of moral character shouldn't get fed at the public trough.

Liverpool vs. Derby County in the next round of the League Cup. Will the Reds do the thrashing or will the underdogs prey on our inconsistency to dump us out???
