NHL reason is young but there are some players off to slow starts. Curious question. Any one, two or three stand out as really slow getting out of the gate this years.
Write-in candidates accepted but below are a few examples I found that have been somewhat surprising thus far.
Players by goals / assists / +/-
Sid 5 / 8 / -12
Kane 5 / 9 / 0
Brett Burns 0 / 7 / -8
Jack Eichel 4 / 10 / -4
Patrik Laine 7 / 2 / -1...Read Full Post »

This quickie stuff is fun. More efficient too. And all the NFL deserves. Invite Kappy for a conference? That's like the Czar making Leon Trotsky his press secretary. The lesson? Never save anything on your cell phone? The irony? Kappy (or his lawyer) says no? This is football?

For years I thought of Vin Scully only as the announcer for the NBA team I disliked most, and Mark Cuban as a flamboyant jerk. I may have to think about that.
You've probably read something by now about Scully vocally abandoning the NFL and Cuban's comments regarding NFL/NBA 'slavery' drivel. Here's hoping about 100 other owners start drawing lines. One thing you probably haven't seen is this blithering screed against them in the NYDN:

With New England on a bye it seemed play quality leaguewide dipped to about 50% of the norm, which wasn't good to start with. No Pitt didn't help. Heck, no Bears didn't help. Teams that actually showed up won with disturbing frequency. A number of games seemed to feature two teams that didn't show up. But it's not like it wasn't informative, even if much of it was hard to watch for long. An awful lot of receivers dropped an awful lot of easy passes. With gloves. Uncovered. Makes y...Read Full Post »

Things are obviously going pretty well for Verlander right now. World Series win, marriage to a woman who isn't exactly dog meat in the looks department.
But here's why it's hats off to him.
When he agreed to the Houston trade, he had 3 x 28 mil left on his contract with a 4th year vesting option at 22 mil if he finished in the top 5 in Cy Young voting in 2019.
With the trade coming near the end of the season, Houston was on the hook for roughly 5.5 mil of the 28 in...

I want to talk about LSU-Alabama of course, but I also wanted to talk about a couple of other things first.
Really briefly, I’ve made previous reference to my dislike for politics seeping into sports. Accordingly, I won’t go into details about any one issue. I feel that since a certain point of view is being pushed by much of the sports media, I should at least recommend someone who says mostly corr...Read Full Post »

Fredericksburg Texas is a quaint, charming little town nestled in the bosom of a region known locally as the Texas Hill Country. It lies approximately seventy-five miles northwest of San Antonio, and about 25 miles from my home town. With a population of just over 11,000 people, Fredericksburg is widely known for its antique shops, museums, wineries, and its unique German heritage. For some of us it is also known as the birthplace and home town of Roger Metzger.
