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.

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.

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)

The Great Heist: How Fox Paid for and Changed Football Forever

I never hated that Fox Box. I thought it was great when I would flip over to a game just to see a score and I never really felt that it got in the way of my view of the game

SportsFilter: The Thursday Huddle

In an effort to call owlhouse back to the fold (seriously, I hope he's alright), I give you an amazing runout from last night's day 1 action between India and Australia.

It was an eventful day 1 as one of the Australian's had a catch that was so great, it made ESPN's top plays of the day. When I went to bed last night around midnight, I think India had only 2 runs for 8 outs (extreme exaggeration that reflects how terrible India was batting) and I wake up to India with 250 runs for 8 outs.
