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.

Bears 1936 Throwbacks Shine Light on NFL's Segregated Era: The Chicago Bears will be wearing 1936 throwback uniforms this Sunday as part of the team’s season-long centennial celebration. ... That means the black players currently on the Bears roster, including Hicks, Trevathan and Burton, will be the first African-Americans ever permitted to wear this uniform on the field.

Russian NHL Star Artemi Panarin Has Opinions: ...very strong opinions.

Artemi Panarin is one of the most dynamic hockey players in the world. Nicknamed Breadman (because of the similarity of his last name to the popular Panera Bread bakery chain) he also has a reputation of one of the most sincere, charismatic, likeable players in the NHL. Recently, Panarin has signed with the New York Rangers after refusing better deals from other teams. But earlier this week, Artemi did something truly unthinkable: he utterly trashed Russia’s president Vladimir Putin and his regime in an extremely candid interview with the Vsemu Golovin Youtube channel.

England win Cricket World Cup: This is a match that was all New Zealand behind their incredible bowling and ever better fielding, but England's bats did just enough to tie the match and force a super over where they put 15 runs. New Zealand chased it and it came down to needing 2 runs on the last ball. They literally fell just inches away from getting that many to win, but alas for them, they couldn't get it. Amazing match!

Passan: How a 19-year-old prospect is turning the MLB draft upside down: 19 year old prospect, Carter Stewart, has opted to begin his professional baseball career in Japan instead of making the long, hard slog through MLB's minor league system. Why? Seven million reasons why. It would be interesting if the professional Japanese baseball league were to loosen their rules on foreign players especially if the teams are willing to put up millions of dollars to top prospects around the world.

I vote for XTC's "Skylarking" on repeat. Maybe mix in some Dukes of Stratosphear if you need to change it up a bit.

Welp, we just got robbed of an aesthetic color match-up for Super Bowl 54. I was looking forward to a battle of the bold yellow/green vs red/white. /sigh

Luke Kuechly Retires from NFL at 28

I'm glad to see Panthers leadership treating his decision with respect, and I hope the fan base follows suit.

As with any fan base, you got your real assholes sounding off about how he needs to give the team just two more seasons and he's being selfish for not doing so or that this is all Cam's fault. But a clear majority of Panthers fans are sad but totally respect his decision to get out of the game before it kills him. Even the Hurricanes are saying their goodbye (picture is of him sounding the siren before a playoff game last year).

The storm deintensified as it approached the Raleigh area. It's what we call the Triangle Weatherdome. It stormed, but not like it did in Mississippi/Alabama. Still, we're in the winter season and we got a thunderstorm which means we should be getting snow within 10 days.
