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?

NFL Pick 'Em Week 7: J-E-T-S Edition

Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.

And intended as such, I assure you!

NFL Pick 'Em Week 7: J-E-T-S Edition

Whew! My "lock-em-all" approach in a week full of upsets didn't hurt me as badly as I thought it might! Still looking up at the pack though...and now for my picks and best Howard_T impression:

Kansas City by 3 (Is it just me, or have defenses figured out how to stop Mahomes and co.?)

Atlanta by 5 (When the completely resistible force comes up against an imminently movable object...)

Buffalo by 13 LOCK (the entire AFC East should be relegated, with one notable exception)

Jacksonville by 17 LOCK (continuing the Bengals pattern of close loss...blowout loss...close loss...blowout loss...close loss...enter Minshew and DJ Chark do do do do do DO)

Minnesota by 10 (good Purple D and timely bad calls will sink Detroit)

Green Bay by 8 (I dunno what to think about the Raiders this season..maybe Chucky's getting a bit of his mojo back?)

Houston by 14 (Will it be Houston's O or D that shows up Sunday? Doesn't matter)

N.Y. Giants by 3 (Jones/Barkley > Murray?)

San Francisco by 20 LOCK (all of the insufferable Niners fans here in Reno have laid dormant for the past 5 years or so...and now they're back)

L.A. Chargers by 3 (Tannehill gets the start, and will prove that 2 mediocre quarterbacks don't equal 1 viable starter)

New Orleans by 10 (the Saints D has people saying "Drew Brees...who dat?")

Baltimore by 4 (Carroll and Wilson are denied the sweep of the AFC North)

Philadelphia by 6 (Jerry Jones' pain is like sweet ambrosia to most casual NFL fans)

New England by 20 LOCK (Darnold returns to earth)

Opinion: LeBron James undermines values he's espoused in most disgraceful moment of career

I've always like LeBron, or at least I've wanted to like him. I'm not a basketball fan in any way, shape, or form, but I know enough about him to know that he is a transcendent, generational talent on the floor who virtually single-handedly brought an NBA championship to Cleveland a few years back. I saw him on SNL and thought he was somewhat self-deprecaing and endearing for a mega-talent. I even wrote off his "the decision" garbage on ESPN as just giving the people what they wanted.

But this is some bullshit. You're seriously crying about inconvenience and possible financial setbacks when there are people putting their lives on the line for their ideals? And in doing so, supporting the Chinese government's attempts to suppress free speech not only in Hong Kong, but worldwide? Make no mistake, the Chinese government is simply using its economic might--rather than military or police forces--to bend globally-minded organizations like the NBA to its will. But it's suppression of free speech all the same. LeBron is the one who needs to "educate himself" aboutwhat is going on, and not Morey.

Jay Gruden Out as Washington Coach

Soon to be hired as a "special adviser" to the Bengals. Kind of like Hugh Jackson's triumphant return to the Queen City.

I hereby protest my busted-lock pick from Thursday night's game. The game had been on for, like, 27 seconds when I made that pick.

In light of the Sam Darnold mono (among other) news, I would like to change my Monday night pick to Cleveland by 10.
