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)

Andrew McCutchen Re-Enacts Dodgers-Giants Brawl

A) Is this another one of old timey baseball's unwritten rules? That you are not allowed to be upset with yourself for wanting that pitch back?

2) McCutchen's video is hilarious. Especially comparing an outfielder's arrival time to a brawl with that of a kid's late arrival at a fun birthday party.

How to Watch European Soccer on TV

We subscribe to Hulu Live TV and that includes NBC Sports Channel, CBS Sports Channel, FS1, and all of the ESPN channels. It also includes the local Fox Sports channels for my Hurricanes games. If you're an NBA fan, it also includes TNT. That and ESPN/ABC will get you a lot of NBA games. I suppose my local Fox Sports channel shows all of the Hornets games if I was so inclined to watch that dreck.

Aside: whoah! my break tags are getting waaaaay out of hand! I think the site keeps adding more with each view of the thread.

Hope me, administrator!

Wait. I may have fixed it.

Not trying to lead the conversation in a specific direction here, but I want to ask: if betters can now bet on *anything* in-game through a app on a mobile device, doesn't this open up avenues for spot fixing?

I really Gibby as a color analyst for Tigers baseball. He, of all people, has a very calming voice.
