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?

Luke Kuechly Retires from NFL at 28

Smart choice. Concussions (at last 1) in three consecutive seasons must have been brutal on his cognitive function. I'm glad to see Panthers leadership treating his decision with respect, and I hope the fan base follows suit.

I cleverly locked only one game each week. New Orleans over Minnesota in week one, and Baltimore over Tennessee this week. I really know how to pick my moments.

Tennessee Sends Patriots Out of Playoffs in First Round

I suspected that the Pats AFC East schedule had artificially inflated their record and defensive stats. I'm also thrilled to have them gone early; I, like so many, suffer from extreme Pats fatigue.

That said, if this is the end of the dynasty, what an incredible fucking run it was. In a league designed for parity, they have been at the top for a long-ass time.

OK. So far, so good. How about New Orleans by 13 and a lock; Seattle by 7.

Mrs. Moj has been admiring my fancy Zubaz trousers since I won them in 16. She needs some of her very own for more formal occasions.

SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

Crawford was the coach who sent Bertuzzi out to sucker punch pick a fight with Moore, which Moore refused, leading Bertuzzi to inexcusably sucker punch him.

The difference is important, and I'm not sure you can pin Bertuzzi's actions on Crawford. Moore fought with (and arguably cheap-shotted) Matt Cook a Canucks player during a fight-filled game.* Crawford, whether you agree with such retribution or not, sent Bertuzzi onto the ice to try to even the score through another fight. The much bigger Bertuzzi attempted to goad Moore into a fight, which Moore wisely refused. Bertuzzi then chased him down the ice and punched him in the back of the head and landed on him.

*We should all thank Moore for kicking Cook's ass, but that's beside the point.

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.
