Sports Bio

My favorite teams are the Cubs, Tigers, Lions, Panthers, Hurricanes, Sri Lanka, and Kings XI Punjab.
My most memorable sporting event that I attended was Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals in 2006 when the Hurricanes won it all. I will never forget a second of that game.

Meanwhile, Sports Illustrated speculates how the NBA/WNBA and their players gain from this deal.

Steelers Minority Owner Set to Buy Carolina Panthers: The Carolina Panthers are going to have a new owner in the coming days/weeks, as CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported on Friday. David Tepper, a billionaire hedge-fund manager and a Steelers minority owner, is set to purchase the team. The price is set at $2.2 billion, which is less than the $3 billion price tag that present owner Jerry Richardson wanted on the NFL franchise. It is, however, significantly more than the last NFL franchise purchase of $1.1 billion, which was the sale of the Buffalo Bills back in 2014. The sale is pending a vote among the present NFL franchise owners, which is probably a mere formality. (Warning: autoplaying videos in the provided links)

Altuve Ruled Out on Fan Interference in ALCS Game 4

If you look at one of the replays, seems his glove hit the fan's hand before the ball hit the glove, so I think he may have been impeded in getting his glove as far over to his left as he needed to in order to make the catch.

I watched the replay on a bigger screen and I see what you're saying.

Also, doesn't the rule state that the ball has to be on the field side of the wall for it to be fan interference?

Altuve Ruled Out on Fan Interference in ALCS Game 4

OK, just now seeing this play for the first time and, boy, did Boston ever get a gift there. Had nobody been there, the ball would've bounced off the side of the mitt and it would've been a home run. Crazy call

I see you! Wicked awesome!

If anyone else wants to see Howard in his native setting, use this link instead and follow his directions. The white hat and the stunning wife made it easy to find our man.

Even though I've never been in that arena, those should be great seats. When I could still afford season tickets to Hurricanes games, we were in section 324, which in my opinion, was the best section in the house. Center ice, up just high enough to see the entire rink without any neck craning at all. Our seats were right under the TV/radio announcers' booths.

Howard! I watched some of the Phila v. Boston game last night and looked for you in the stands. I looked for the 100+ year old dude in a Ford F-550, but didn't see anything matching that. Did you go to the game?

Pickup Trucks = Character according to Tripp Tracy

For the love of Pete, how does this guy still have a job? I was hoping with Karmanos no longer being around that the org would finally show Tracy the door, but nope, he's still around, giving us dime store deep thoughts like this every game. He's like a low rent Thomas Friedman (but still just as "insightful"). And now I got to hear this dude on the radio as well since they are just doing a simulcast nowadays.
