Sports Bio

Fan of pro teams from Cincinnati, vividly remember the cold bowl against Fouts' Chargers, and hope I live to see some glory soon. Still haven't gotten over the Whale leaving Hartford. Jumped squarely onto the NJ Devils bandwagon at that point, but just love all things hockey.

NHL Third Jerseys for 2018-19: Several teams unveiled new third jerseys for the upcoming NHL season. The Avs tip a cap to the old time Rockies, Flyers go two-tone (no word on the return of the Cooperall pants), the Devils bring back the Green and Red, and at the risk of offering an opinion on a FPP, the 'Canes win.

So...About that Serena Cartoon: It sure feels like this is something that would have been discussed at length a few years back on SpoFi. What does the hive mind here think? Is it racist as hell, a cultural phenomenon, or a bit of both?

SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

As much as I like hating the Patriots, this one seems like an unintentional error.

Looking back at my comment, one might reasonably conclude that I believed that the Pats were [again] intentionally cheating and [again] got caught. This Bengals fan does not actually think that is true. If you have to cheat to beat this year's crop of cast-offs, has-beens, and never-will-bes, you have no business winning the Super Bowl every other year for a decade or two.

I just think that with all of the accusations in the past--many of which were much more than just smoke--the Pats should probably be more aware of the optics of what they do as an organization. Knowing that there will be constant suspicions and accusations of cheating, why would they do anything that might raise additional concerns?

Sure has been a whole lotta nothings involving the Pats under Belichick. Lots of smoke, but never any fire.

No, I was not at the game.

Of course not; that's silly. You were home watching it on your iPad, right?

NFL Pick 'Em Week 11: Miami 2-Game Winning Streak Edition

Howard--I'm the son of an old F-100 pilot. One of his dear friends from high school and the USAF, a man I grew up around, was a Wild Weasel. As we walked onto the grounds of Stead Air Base outside of Reno one day, we came upon an F-105 displayed outside the gate. Ed said, kind of offhand, "hey, I flew that plane." I asked, "oh, you flew the F-105?," to which he replied, "yeah, but I mean I flew that specific plane." Turns out it was his old mount that had been put out to stud. Anyhow...

He told a kid to slide. Then he got sued.

From Howard's [very insightful] comment on the [wrong] thread: One cannot tell from the story, but the player probably had enough experience to know how to slide.

According to the lawsuit, this kid had major league aspirations. That being the case, we should reasonably be able to assume that he understood all of the rudimentary skills to playing the game: throwing, catching, hitting, running bases, and sliding. I was taught how and when to slide at the earliest stages of my baseball playing days, and I sure as hell never had big-league aspirations, or even the ability to play varsity high school ball. I understand that at his level, the game is faster and coaches are forced to think quicker, but come on.

Houston Astros accused of electronically stealing signs in 2017

Waiting for a televangelist to claim that Verlander's World Series losses are God's revenge for the sins of the sign stealers.

I'm a devout atheist, but fuck it. I'll go on record saying that. I mean, I might use the word "karma" in place of "God", but tomato/tomaato.

Kevin Harlan's Cat Call

Kinda shocked that flags weren't thrown for taunting. The cat paused on the 2 to admire his work, hung out in the end zone for a looooonnnngggg time, and was clearly looking for a Salvation Army kettle to dive into. Harlan's call was great. Collinsworth would have called him a showboat and told him to act like he'd been there before.
