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.

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.

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. Related Fun Big 10 Fact: no Big 10 football team has scored a single point in the college football playoff since Ohio State won the first CFB championship.

Ben Stokes nearly single-handedly took that game back, though. Helluva charge by him, but fell a bit short.

And Lasith Malinga! Man, how do you handle his bowling? Other than just praying to your god that he doesn't make you look too silly. Yorker, yorker, yorker, slow ball, wicket.

The Tampa Bay Expos? The Montreal Rays?

Well, the Montreal games will be played in Durham, NC until Montreal gets a baseball-only stadium built. The Tampa games will be played in Flin Flon until further notice. All season tickets will be honored for the games played in Reno.

I had a very pleasant sports night tonight. I got to see two storied minor league teams play: the Toledo Mud Hens v. the Durham Bulls on a very beautiful night. Then I got home in time to see the Raptors win their first title. Huzzah to sports!
