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?

Ray Rice Suspended for 2 Games: the Baltimore Ravens running back will be suspended for the first two games of the regular season under the NFL's personal conduct policy and fined a third game check. The ban comes in response to Rice allegedly striking his then-fiancée and now wife, Janay, unconscious in February in Atlantic City. Rice was able to avoid prosecution after being accepted into a pre-trial intervention program.

Is anyone else seeing similar?

Exactly the same thing.

And also, that Vinatieri video was awesome.

Who doesn't love sports, bestiality? I guess if there is anyone then I only have to sympathise with him/her :) I love sports, bestiality so badly and not only physical games bestiality but also digital games bestiality, just day before yesterday I installed Xbox an anatomically correct mechanical bull in my Link Removed office so everybody can engage in gaming bestiality activities.

Elias Pettersson leaves Canucks game

Plays like that piss me off. The initial hit looked innocuous enough; if it was high, it was close and could have been unintentional and due to the speed of play. But the follow-up of throwing Pettersson to the ice like that shows zero respect for a competitor, and can't really be seen as anything but an intent to injure. Hope the kid's ok.

Trent Dilfer and Bucky Dent may be related. They both have the same middle name

My one and only Dilfer [non]interaction: As part of a charity auction for the Lake Tahoe School in Incline Village, NV, my father bought a round of golf for 4 at Montreaux Golf Club. The round was supposed to be for three players of the buyer's choosing (my dad, my brother, and I), and the round's donor - Dilfer - was to round out the foursome. So the round was not only at northern Nevada's premier golf course, one at which a PGA event has been played for a dozen or so years, but it was to feature a Super Bowl-winning quarterback along for the round. Not bad!

We tried to arrange the round seven or eight times, but Dilfer couldn't fit us into his schedule. We tried to arrange the round without him (the course was the highlight of the prize for all of us), but because he is the member at the private club, we couldn't get on without him. We tried to get a refund, but it was a charitable donation and Dilfer's people didn't want to give us our donation back.

Never played, he never showed, dad got stuck for about a grand. Guy can climb a wall of dicks using only his lips as far as I'm concerned.

NHL Third Jerseys for 2018-19

The 'Canes will be donning the Whaler jersey twice season, once at home and once up in Boston.

This West Hartford boy will be ignoring those offenses, thank you very much. But something about the movement of the flags on that new third color scheme appeals to me.

I'm with you on most of them, cixelsyd. They are pretty uninspired, and play into the hipster/minimalist trend ("hey, let's open a restaurant with brick walls and unfinished tables, and call it "Chow"!"). I do like it when a team like the Devils or the Avs acknowledges their history (not you, Hurricanes, you Karmanos-humping vampires).*

Anyhow, I realize that this isn't quite FPP-worthy material, but thought it might be a good way to good-naturedly stir the pot. But then NoMich had to bring up the Whalers and really got me fired up.

*I refuse to acknowledge the irony in cheering for the former Colorado team playing in Jersey while loathing the former Hartford team for moving to Carolina.

Wilson's a goon, and he sure seemed like he was headhunting, so I'm not excusing that.

But who in their right mind skates into the middle of the ice looking backwards? The best he could have expected was a clean hit that would have jolted his neck pretty badly.
