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. 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 funny thing is, we have no idea who will be good and who will be terrible. Except whoever Christian Hackenberg is playing for. We'll know that they will be terrible.
