Sports Bio

I follow the teams from Dallas-Fort Worth because I grew up with them, but I've adopted the Jacksonville Jaguars, the only pro team my new hometown is ever likely to get. The most memorable sporting event I attended live was game 6 of the NBA Western Conference finals in 1988 at Reunion Arena -- Mavericks vs. Lakers -- when Mark Aguirre and his prodigious caboose received half the game MVP award, and the 17,007 fans in attendance received the other half.

Andrew McCutchen Re-Enacts Dodgers-Giants Brawl: The Dodgers and Giants brawled Tuesday night because catcher Nick Hundley didn't like batter Yasiel Puig engaging in introspective self-criticism after he fouled a pitch and Puig didn't like Hundley not liking it. Andrew McCutchen arrived late to the fracas from the outfield. He explains why in this re-enactment.

How to Watch European Soccer on TV: Kevin Draper of the New York Times runs down how to gorge on as much European soccer as possible this season, which would cost around $750 a year because of the cable and streaming packages required. The story has an interesting tidbit: Soccer is fourth in a poll of Americans' favorite sport to watch -- and it's catching baseball.

Join SportsFilter's Fantasy Premier League: If you have created a team in the Fantasy Premier League this year, use the link to add it to SportsFilter's league. Scoring began with week one, but you can still jump in at week two like I'm doing (a tragic circumstance I blame on Comfort Inn and Suites).

SportsFilter NFL Pick 'Em Week 2: Undefeated Browns Edition

What happens if you pick a team to win and lock it, and the game is a tie? Is it zero points (neither a win nor a loss)?

A tie results in 0 points for everybody, no matter the team picked or whether it was locked.

The other problems are bugs. I must have broken something when I added code for ties. I'll fix them today.

Should tennis players awarded a point or a game from a referee's punishment of their opponent be allowed to decline that advantage?

I think once a team uses a franchise tag on a player, anything that player does in the future to get paid is fair.

Running backs have an incredibly short opportunity to get the big contract. Maurice Jones-Drew never did and he was practically the entire Jaguars franchise for several years.

Bell deserves a giant deal.

The pick is ignored for scoring purposes and you can pick it again when it is rescheduled.

CFL Pick 'Em Week Twelve

More from Reever for Dr. J:

WEEK 12

Montreal @ Ottawa (Friday, August 31)
The Als are coming off their first home win of the season and look to build some hard-to-come-by momentum in the nation's capital against a tops-in-the-East Redblacks team.

Winnipeg @ Saskatchewan (Sunday, September 2)
Winnipeg showed signs of weakness last week in Calgary, and a resurgent Rider team playing at home is never a good place to regain your footing.

Edmonton @ Calgary (Sunday, September 2)
Edmonton lost a tough one in Hamilton in Week 11, and Calgary is a good football club. Maybe don't bet the farm on the Eskimos this week?

Toronto @ Hamilton (Monday, September 3)
Toronto signed one of the most explosive receivers in the CFL this week in Duron Carter who could make his Argo debut against the Cats this week. Is it enough to pull out a win in hostile territory?

Good luck!

Cigar City Brewing in Tampa makes some great beers, including the best Florida IPA Jai Alai. When you open a can it smells like newly mowed lawn. Delicious.

A small place in Jacksonville Beach, Green Room Brewing, has a yearly special release called Quetzalcoatl that may be the state's best beer. It's a an imperial red ale made with chocolate, cassava root, serrano and pablano peppers that drops the hammer at 11% ABV.

The biggest reason for low bicycle usage here is the crazy high number of fatalities. This is the most dangerous state for bicyclists.

I love Jon Miller calling baseball. When I used to gorge on MLB Audio I sometimes listened to Giants games just for him.

I just found out that in 1978 when Miller was 26, he was hired by Texas to replace the great Dick Risenhoover who was terminally ill. The Rangers lost Miller a season later to Boston.

I was an every-night listener to Rangers games on WBAP back then at age 11. Miller imprinted himself on my brain even as I forgot he ever called the team.
