Sports Bio

Brazilian soccername: Binhosa

Fan of:
- Liverpool FC
- USC Trojans (class of '83, except I had no class while in attendance)
- Original SJ Earthquakes, RIP
- Barcelona FC
- SJ Sharks
- 49ers
- NY Giants

Baseball seriously sucks, it's boring, they could shut down MLB tomorrow and I'd be happy especially since the channel that broadcasts the SF Giants games is a Fox affiliate and their games regularly screw up my viewing schedule.

I won the 2005 NFL Playoff Pool

These Browns are more disappointing under Freddie Kitchens than with Hue Jackson's failed run: The team is 2-6 after losing to a depleted Broncos team after preseason forecasts that had them making a playoff run. And then Browns' Whitehead released after 'unacceptable' Twitter rant.

SportsFilter: The Thursday Huddle

I know players want to play but why would Foles give up so much money? Unless he has such self-confidence that he expects to opt out after an All Pro season and make even more, maybe?

SportsFilter: The Thursday Huddle

We were on Oahu a couple of months ago (hey @ufez!) and of course visited Pearl Harbor. While there we toured the docked sub from WWII and let me tell you I have no idea how anyone even my 5'8" height could manage in these tight spaces.

I watched The English Game ( on Netflix last weekend, very interesting short series from Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey) about the turning point in football when payers started getting paid.

Los Angeles Rams Release Todd Gurley

If Gurley's contract had $45M guaranteed, how does the team save money by cutting him? If they can cut him then it's not guaranteed.
