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?

Rest in Peace, Cedric Benson. Although his NFL career didn't pan out as many anticipated it would, he sure played some great ball while he was with the Bengals.

that clip NoMich

Seconded. That move he puts on the Saints DB's early on in the clip was a complete ankle breaker.

Robot umps now!

That was one hell of an explanation Howard, thanks for the effort! And remember a few weeks back when I kicked dirt on your shoes? I'm sorry about that. Keep up the good work.

Reds' Amir Garrett Fights Entire Pirates Team

The bad blood between these two teams has been great this year. Certainly, the two are mired in an epic race for ...[checks standings]...last place in the NL Central?

I still stand by my hard-assed umpire decision that Marisnick's hit was intentional

...and I stand by my decision to kick dirt on your umping shoes. I mean, you gotta be kidding me. Whaddya got, walleye vision!?

I'm not sure if that supports my theory that his hit on Lucroy was unintentional or undermines it. My perception is that it supports it--he injured the other team's catcher on a play that was dangerous, even if unintentional, and now he's sucking it up and taking his medicine. That said, I get the impression that Marisnick now believes his debt to be settled, and any further escalation by the Angels will cause an uproar.

Jake Marisnick Clobbers Jonathan Lucroy at Home

My conclusion as an umpire would be that Marisnick deliberately collided with Lucroy.

And although I disagree with you, in no way do I think that conclusion is unreasonable. It all happens way too fast for anyone (except Marisnick) to be 100% certain.

Kicking dirt on your cleats anyway.

Jake Marisnick Clobbers Jonathan Lucroy at Home

Man, that was brutal. It sure looks like Marisnick was trying to avoid him and just guessed wrong. Running full speed, you get one chance to make a move; he made his and it ended badly for everyone. For me, any doubt is erased when he immediately jumps up to check on Lucroy's well-being and is clearly distressed by what happened.

BIRGing and CORFing

Still waiting for the acronym for whatever it is that fans from Cincinnati experience--which is pre-game pessimism, followed by early game resignation, followed by mid-game cautious hope, followed by late mid game elation, followed by end of game crushing defeatism.

I'll donate a cup of my spit every week during baseball and football season to this study. although the only difference between pre- and post-game will be the spiked level of alcohol and bitterness (at my parents for raising me in Cincinnati).

St. Louis Blues Win First Stanley Cup

I don't know how to embed a gif in a post (I think someone tried to teach me a few years back, but I'm ...simple).


Watching Marchand make that "ole!" play and then skate to the bench for a horrible change warms the cockles of my heart.

Fan Who Shoved Raptors Player is a Warriors Owner

I, for one, am shocked SHOCKED I TELL YOU to see a Silicon Valley venture capitalist/tech bro behaving in such an entitled manner.

And although the "shove" was closer to a "nudge," I understand the whole "you purposefully make contact with a player, you're out" policy. There really isn't room for discretion there.

How much of this is due to the somewhat lopsided pairings in the early rounds of the playoffs. 1 vs 8 and 2 vs 7 might be considered mismatches.

I certainly think that parity comes into play in this instance, as well. An 8 vs. 1 matchup in the NBA is virtually a predetermined outcome. In the NHL, not so much.

Do the Pirates have anyone in an announcing booth who isn't a full of shit curmudgeon?
