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.

Russian NHL Star Artemi Panarin Has Opinions: ...very strong opinions.

Artemi Panarin is one of the most dynamic hockey players in the world. Nicknamed Breadman (because of the similarity of his last name to the popular Panera Bread bakery chain) he also has a reputation of one of the most sincere, charismatic, likeable players in the NHL. Recently, Panarin has signed with the New York Rangers after refusing better deals from other teams. But earlier this week, Artemi did something truly unthinkable: he utterly trashed Russia’s president Vladimir Putin and his regime in an extremely candid interview with the Vsemu Golovin Youtube channel.

England win Cricket World Cup: This is a match that was all New Zealand behind their incredible bowling and ever better fielding, but England's bats did just enough to tie the match and force a super over where they put 15 runs. New Zealand chased it and it came down to needing 2 runs on the last ball. They literally fell just inches away from getting that many to win, but alas for them, they couldn't get it. Amazing match!

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.

Dear rcade,
Should I have received more points for the Mavs and Clippers wins last week since I locked them? Or was I too far off on my point spreads?

Richard Sherman weighs in on the Tim Ryan situation in San Francisco (from The Athletic which requires a subscription*):

News of the suspension came long after Wednesday's practice ended. On Thursday, players were quick to defend Ryan, with Sherman saying there was merit to what Ryan said " the 49ers indeed lost sight of the ball in Baltimore.

"I understand how it can be taken under a certain context and be offensive to some, but if you're saying, Hey, this is a brown ball. They're wearing dark colors and he has a brown arm' " honestly, sometimes we were having trouble seeing (the ball) on film," Sherman said.

"(Jackson's) making the play fake and sometimes he's swinging his arm really fast and you're like, "OK, does he have the ball on that play?' Then you look up and (running back Mark) Ingram's running it," Sherman continued. "So it was technically a valid point. ... But you can always phrase things better, you can always phrase things and not say his black skin.' But I've had a relationship with him since I got here. And he's never been anything but a great guy and a professional and a guy who takes his job seriously. So it's unfortunate that that's what it came to."

Ryan issued a statement on Wednesday apologizing for his word choice and also spent time at the team hotel apologizing to players.

Two insults happened in Charlotte today:
1) Ol' Riverboat Ron got sent down the river.
2) OC Norv Turner was named the interim head coach, right? Nope.

Charlotte is about to get an MLS franchise, though. That's actually pretty neat.

A reference marker that's not as much a measure of how old I am as it is of how slow progress can be: the Virginia team was finally integrated just two years before I got there.

I don't know dude. Considering that you got there in 1892, I'd say that UVA was way ahead of their time. Hey-oh!
