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.

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-fiancÚe 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.

NHL Re-Alignment:: The NHL announced the new alignment today, with two conferences of two divisions each. The Detroit Red Wings will now play in the Eastern Conference in the Atlantic Division, and the Winnipeg Jets will be in the Western Conference in the Central Division. Let the natural rivalries (Tampa-Toronto?) begin to take shape!

Is there a racially motivated quarterback controversy brewing in Washington?: Skip Bayless thinks so. Bayless claims that it is human nature for white fans to cheer for white athletes; therefore, fellow rookie Kirk Cousins will be the fans' choice over #2 overall pick Robert Griffin for the starting job.

SportsFilter: The Thursday Huddle

Adam "Pacman" Jones all the way.

In re: yesterday's footage of the airport fight. Even when he's (apparently) in the right, Jones is the human physical embodiment of a shouted "WORLDSTAR!!!"

is there an NFL player that is still active (or recently retired) that has been HOF level great but absolutely boring in every other way?

Geno Atkins comes to mind, but I'm guessing you were looking for a higher profile player than a defensive tackle.

Toronto Maple Leafs sign John Tavares for seven years, $77 million

I'm going to have to agree with grum on that one. I've never heard anything negative about Mathews or a fragile ego, and I think he'll absolutely feast on the additional space he is afforded by having Tavares on the squad. Assuming the Leafs keep Mathews with Nylander, maybe sliding Marleau up to the top line with him, opposing teams are going to have to deal with a Tavares-Hyman-? "Second Line" that most teams would kill to have. I think this makes the Leafs pretty scary for the foreseeable future, especially if they can get a couple of top-tier D pairings to emerge.

Hmm. I can see what Ottawa gets out of that shipment, and I can see what Florida gained, but it looks like San Jose just got rid of Boedker, a valuable role player, in return for a prospect and some picks. Although the tweet from Travis Yost was corect that the Sharks got more for Hoffman than the Sens did. Is there anything I should know about Cody Donaghy?

It's gorgeous, but is it a "stadium"? I don't see any seats.

A huge posse of Canadian revelers would come down here and burn down the White House. Again.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

NHL Playoff Pick 'Em Champion Wins on Tiebreaker

Wow, who knew that bonus point for Ovechkin last round would save me from the ignominy (inverse glory?) of the Costanza? Nice work on keeping it close with the winners, grum, and congratulations on the Costanza. It's nice to see it return to Canada.

Rcade, thanks for the effort, and nice work ic23b and cixelsyd. Display that puck proudly with Brass Bonanza playing at volume 11 on a loop in the background.

Collarred! The Curious Case of Colangelo's Accounts

As one who has little to no interest in basketball at all, I normally skip right over any FPP having to do with it. Something told me that this might be more than just your everyday, ordinary hoops piece. Holy shit, that was (a) just hysterical*; and (b) some pretty good detective work by the reporter. I love that he only tipped his hand as to two of the accounts while monitoring the other three for activity/closure. I might just have to start following the 76ers, solely for Colangelo-related updates!

*I suppose some context about the players and teams involved might add some depth to the piece, but as a stand-alone article, it is entertaining as hell to an outsider.
