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.

Las Vegas Oakland Raiders of San Francisco: Oakland Raiders to play 2019 season at San Francisco Giants' Oracle Park. So, let me get this straight: if the Oakland Raiders and the San Francisco 49ers played a game in San Francisco, Oakland would be the home team? Also, the stadium in Las Vegas will feature a dirt infield, right? I mean, it just wouldn't be a Raiders home game without a dirt infield.

Urban Meyer to Retire: Ohio State coach Urban Meyer plans to step down and will coach his final game in the Rose Bowl, sources told Yahoo Sports. A myriad of factors contributed to Meyer’s decision, but sources say foremost among them was his happiness with the state of the Ohio State program he inherited seven years ago. Meyer, 54, will be replaced by Ryan Day, the 39-year-old offensive coordinator who served as Ohio State’s interim coach earlier this season.

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)

SportsFilter: The Wednesday Huddle

Vlad Jr getting the call up on Friday. MLB about to get 23% more fun

SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle

So you're OK with a pissed off player skating around, mocking other players, committing penalties on those other players, and mocking the on ice officials. He got called on a penalty and he lost his mind.

And the no-goal call wasn't blown. It was upheld by the video review team up in Toronto.

Listen, I have no problem with the Scott Stevens's of the NHL. Sure, some of his big hits were considered borderline dirty, but that is the playoffs for you; push at the edges of what is acceptable. And I say that as a fan of a team that got run roughshod by him in the 2001 playoffs. But what Ovechkin did last night at the end of the game was dumb. He let those other guys get in his kitchen and he couldn't handle it.

But that's not all that he did. Towards the end of the game, he was all sticks and elbows at the Hurricanes players and finally got called on a hooking play. He was also taunting Hamilton/the Hurricanes bench by do a chicken flapping its wings at them. Then he taunted the officials and yelled a bunch a shit at them after getting called for a penalty. I'm not sure how you swallow your whistle after all of that.

I haven't seen many 'true winners' commit obvious penalties after a game is clearly lost, and when called for one of the penalties they proceed to openly mock the officials.

Jeez. Ovechkin doesn't handle a loss very well, does he?

/sad trombone

That's what I figured. I took a look at his stats this year and, well, he should be called up soon. He's going to be fun to watch

What are the chances that Vlad Jr is still with Buffalo in late July? That's the only time that Buffalo plays in Durham.

Alex Ovechkin Knocks Out Chippy Opponent in Fight

Here's the thing that people either don't care about or are completely overlooking: the wind seemed to have been taken out of Washington's sails after that fight. Sure, they continued to play dirty, but they got completely dominated in all other aspects of that game. I mean, they had one single solitary shot on goal in the 2nd period.

...last year at this time, the renewal rate for [Carolina Hurricanes] season tickets was 72 percent. This year, they're currently at 91 percent. The new plans sold year over year has been an increase of 262 percent.

Hmm. It's almost as if there is a correlation between winning and fans in the seats.

I hate that Svech got suckered into that fight, but I have nothing but respect for that 19 year old kid scoring goals and standing up for himself in the playoffs. And fuck Orpik and his dirty ass play. But hey, 5-0 tonight and I'll be there in the ESA for Thursday night's tilt.
