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.

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.

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.

SportsFilter: The Wednesday Huddle

ESPN was saying that Saban was okay with Sark leaving, that the one game was enough to see their styles didn't mesh.

SportsFilter: The Saturday Huddle

My favorite SB memory was 1980. I was a freshman at Carnegie-Mellon in Pittsburgh and my girlfriend was a freshman just down the road at Pitt, a local girl so we went to her folks' house to root for the Steelers' fourth. After the win things got a little messy downtown and we were on the other side of the city from school so I had no choice but to sleep over. LOL guest room LOL

Speaking of which, how does one edit his profile? I didn't see an edit link on that page.

Thanks @rcade! Life wouldn't be quite as good without my mostly daily dose of SpoFi.

Out of curiosity, do any other SpoFites live in the Portland area? We got burned out on Silicon Valley and moved up this month.

The Worst Time to Lose a Scholarship Offer

On the one hand, the UConn coach comes off like a dick; on the other, he only keeps his job by winning. Further, neither he nor the college (for him) given time to respond before this was published and since this was hardly a breaking news story I'm sure another day wouldn't have impacted the paper.

So, anybody watch that college football game last night? I think it was Clemson defeating Arkansas, or maybe Alabama.

I'll go with Grum on Leicester City and sentimentally add Liverpool reaching two cup finals.
