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.

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)

NCAA Coaches, Adidas Executive Face Charges: Across three complaints, two broad schemes were alleged. One involved bribing four assistant coaches -- at Arizona, Auburn, Oklahoma State and Southern California, all programs in the so-called Power 5 conferences of college sports -- to persuade players to send business to certain financial advisers once they turned professional. The other involved efforts to secretly funnel money from Adidas to three players and their families in exchange for the players' commitments to play at two Adidas-sponsored college programs and to later sign sponsorship deals with the company once they turned pro.

A new and a more highly recognized coach to get swept up in this scandal is Louisville's Rick Pitino.

TIL: Sergei Samsonov is still involved in the NHL. He has been in Forwards Development with the Carolina Hurricanes the past four years. Now he's the director of the department. How did I not know this?! Also, he's still only 38.

The coolest part of Eastern NC? In about an hour's drive, you can go from Catfish Hunter's hometown (Hertford) to Buck Leonard's (Rocky Mount, which also happens to be the hometown of Thelonius Monk). I mean, there's some great ideas for memorials, right there.

I admonish the tech experts who are engaged in a FUD campaign against the push to HTTPS and making publishers think it isn't a good idea.

Yeah, it's been fairly shit from a neutral's perspective.

I mean, Boston won last night, but they shot only 36% from the floor. That's some fairly shit basketball, right there.

NFL to Punish Players Who Don't Stand During Anthem

So, the president of the USA had this to say about those that would take a knee during the playing of the national anthem:

"You have to stand proudly for the national anthem, or you shouldn't be playing, you shouldn't be there. Maybe you shouldn't be in the country"

Is this now a 1st amendment situation? You know, now that the figurehead of our government has said that you should be deported if you don't stand for the anthem?
