Sports Bio

I was in Atlanta in 1991 and had the good fortune to be able to attend game 3 of the 1991 World Series between the Braves and the Twins. The atmosphere was electric in Atlanta after so many losing seasons. Every game from the end of the regular season, to the division and league championship series went down to the wire. The World Series proved to be more of the same. Our seats were, without a doubt, THE WORST SEATS IN THE HOUSE (very top row, right field, back against the stadium wall, behind the big screen), But I WAS IN THE HOUSE! Nevertheless, I felt like a kid again. Atlanta-Fulton County stadium was packed, the chop was in full swing, Ted Turner was asleep, and the Braves were victorious (in that game, anyway). A moment to be cherished for a lifetime.

Raymond van Barneveld comes up with a 9-darter

We used to play darts quite frequently at a little pub in Cascais, Portugal. When the darts championship was on, the place was packed and all eyes were on the TV every time someone put the first 2 darts in the trip 20. The camera then zooms in to a close up for the final shot. When the throw was successful, everyone calls along with the announcers booming voice... ONNNE-HUNNNNDRED AND AYYYYYYTY! It really is incredible how they take what is a somewhat mundane bar game, put it on TV, and keep you on the edge of your seat. Phil "The Power" Taylor is "da bomb". Here's his website www.philthepower.com

Happy 25th, USFL!

I remember a young fella who started his professional football career with the Memphis Showboats. The young man was handed a fat contract and did what any young man might do. He went shopping. There was a salesman in a clothing store who got into a bit of trouble for taking advantage of the young guy with the newly acquired bankroll. He sold him (among other things I'm sure) something like $400 worth of socks. That young man was future Hall-of-famer Reggie White. The thing to do at the games was to bring a pair of socks to wave and help cheer on the defense.

Here's another thought: They say this is becase it's violating the broadcast agreements... Last time I checked... "broadcast agreements" don't equal "laws"... just my $0.02 worth.
