Elvis Andrus is walking up to Baby Shark.

I am on the side of it being awesome, at least for now :)

Asking for a friend, does SportsFilter usually have a NCAA bracket challenge or two (men and women)? I cannot remember.

Nine years ago!

NINE! Random thoughts

  • As USA fan it was one of those moments where I uttered a 4-letter word, shut the TV off, got up from my chair, and went on with my life. Happy for Canada, but couldn't watch the celebration.
  • As a Flames fan, I miss watching Iginla play
  • The Norway broadcaster did not say a word until the goal was scored. Interesting how different cultures portrayed the moment.
  • I can only recall seeing Al Michael's call of the 'Miracle on Ice'. Be interesting to see other calls of the finish.

When the ballot came out, I had a discussion with a Yankees fan whom wasn't sure Mariano Rivera was a first ballot HOF candidate. :P

Mariano Rivera performance on the field got him in the HOF. The fact he was friendly to writers and is not linked with any performance enhancing rumors probably got him the 100% vote. It probably was tougher for voters to NOT vote for him than to vote for him.

I was probably still smarting over the stupidity of the "Tuck Rule".

What's that old saying? If can beat them, join them. Right?

Good for Jalen. I am not qualified to know if he can play on Sundays, but going to OU gives him a better chance than staying at 'Bama.

Depends on what FPP stands for.

FPP is an acronym for Front Page Post, maybe?

The Panthers lost in most Lions way: poor coaching and poor execution

I wandered into a local chain sports bar around the end of the game for a beer and bite to eat at the 2 minute warning in this game. As I watched, the conversation in my head went roughly like this.

  • Wow, I did not think Carolina was this bad.

  • Nope, they are 6-3 (before the loss).

  • Wow, I did not think Detroit was this good.

  • Nope, they are 3-6 (before the win).

  • What the hell happened the other 58 minutes of this game?.

@rcade if you'd be interested in getting a team together to collaborate I'd be happy to pitch in

Depending on the timing, I'd be interested in helping. My strength is backend Java, but have worked with Bootstrap and know what Node is :)

30 years and a day ago, I watched this game on a TV screen that was smaller than my current computer monitor

I haven't done Fantasy Hockey for years, but might be interested.
Draft is listed as 7PM. What timezone is that?

Serie B: Officials deny Italian second tier has been suspended amid legal row

A Italian soccer podcast I listen to talked about how many think Serie A and Serie B have too many teams and the bankruptcy may get both leagues down to a better size. The lawsuits is probably putting a damper on this though.

but my guess is because Galatasaray beat Rangers head to head, 5-4 on aggregate.

Isn't it 3-2 on aggregate for Gala over Rangers? (3-2 at home and 0-0 on the road.)

You are correct. I must have snuck one of the 2-2 results into their tie.

I can't remember what the tie-breaker would have been, but my guess is because Galatasaray beat Rangers head to head, 5-4 on aggregate.
