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.

LeBron Joins Los Angeles Lakers: LeBron James will never get beaten again in the NBA Finals by the Golden State Warriors. He's agreed to a four-year, $154 million deal with the Los Angeles Lakers. The lowercase-D decision was announced by a short tweet from his agency Klutch Sports. His move follows four years in Cleveland where he made four NBA Finals and won one championship and four years in Miami where he made four more and won two championships. The Lakers haven't made the playoffs at all for five years.

Yeah, we can't pick the third-place game. I was tempted to include it in the contest and award negative points for getting it right.

Harry Kane didn't hit the post against Croatia. It was a brilliant save.

It's hard to find an elite American athlete with virtually no social impact like Mike Trout (either positive or negative).

Trout feels like a Tim Duncan to me. A truly great player who is just not interesting at all outside the game. The weather nerdery is cool, though.

The Croatians accidentally rolled over a photographer in their goal celebration. He got fantastic shots.

England really became a mess in the middle. I thought they'd have more legs, but their shape and stamina let them down. Croatia was a deserving winner. I hope they can give France a real challenge.

SportsFilter: The Wednesday Huddle

LeSean McCoy allegedly sent someone on a home invasion to take jewelry he gave an ex-girlfriend when they were together.

O.J. Simpson served nine years in prison for robbing a memorabilia dealer at gunpoint to get items he felt were rightfully his. This allegation is more serious than that because the ex and another woman were both struck in the face with the gun.

I picked Johan Djourou to get a card when England played Sweden. This would have been an achievement for the ages, because he plays for Switzerland.

4. Pick a player in each game and get 2 points for each yellow card he receives or 5 points for a straight red card.at ended 2-1 is worth 3 points).
