Puppy Bowl and Kitty Bowl are really cute, though. They are. :)

We're changing cable networks next week, and one of the fancy shmancy extra stations you can get, if you order it, is Willow, a cricket channel. Oh, boy! It probably isn't in our station lineup, but it would be cool if it were.

TERRIBLE play call at the end--in fact, possibly the worst play call ever in Super Bowl history--but I give Pete Carroll credit for having the class to take the blame for that call. That was one helluva circus catch made by Jermaine Kearse to set up that play call, though. For the sheer concentration and athleticism necessary to make that catch in that situation, it was every bit as spectacular as David Tyree's helmet catch that helped the Giants beat unbeaten New England in Super Bowl XLII.

The 2001 AFC divisional playoff game where the Patriots won due to a bad call will always be, in my butthurt Raiders fan opinion, the worst call in football history. But I suppose that wasn't a Super Bowl call, although we deserved to go into it instead of the Patriots.

I'm just glad that baseball season is closer now.
...Or it's just possible he's a mouthy young man on an internet forum.
In the infinite wisdom of God, James can be all three.

Don't root for loosing teams. The Seattle Sounders have 13 championships, four of which are U.S. Open Cup titles and come in 1st in Western Conference and Overall 1st in the league.

It rains more in NY and Florida than it does here in WA. It's a myth about the weather. What isn't a myth is our bad sports teams. However, the Sounders are the best and we are proud of them.

Bad sports teams? The Pacific Northwest has the Seattle Seahawks, who have played in each of the last two Super Bowls--I'm not going to let you get away with calling them a bad sports team just because they lost their attempt to repeat as Super Bowl champions. The PNW has the Portland Trail Blazers, who, despite their recent struggles, are still one of the best teams in the NBA. We have the Portland Thorns, who recently won the national championship in professional women's soccer. The PNW may have their bad sports teams, but they have plenty of good ones, as well.

However, the Sounders are the best and we are proud of them.
You can have your Sounders. GO TIMBERS! ;D

A few dumb things about pro football:

1. The cheesy uniforms

2. The required leggings that the NFL mandates. (Half naked cheerleaders doing strip teases on the sidelines is somehow considered professional, but football players with their calves exposed is somehow not. Can't figure that one out.)

3. Domed stadiums in cities where it rarely gets below 50 degrees. That Arizona weather can be brutal in the fall. And such horrible scenery too. Better build a dome to protect the players and fans from such a horrible environment.

4. The two minute warning. Let's arbitrarily stop the flow of the game at its climax so that we can warn the teams that there are only two minutes left. It's not like they can just look up at the scoreboard clock and find out how much time remains. In fact, I wonder why they don't periodically stop the game to apprise the teams of the score. That would make about as much sense as the two minute warning.

It's quite subjective of course. Part of what I find goofy about the NFL uniforms is the socks/leggings that I mentioned. Also the jerseys having to be tucked in. I just like the college style uniforms a lot better. But as far as NFL uniforms go, I guess I think the Cowboys, the Steelers, and the 49's have decent uniforms. I like simplicity. Less is more.

One of the key players on the great Portland Trail Blazer teams that played in the NBA Finals in 1990 and 1992, small forward Jerome Kersey, is reported to have died today in Portland. He was only 52 and even spoke at one of the local high schools the day before with teammates Terry Porter and Brian Grant. He leaves behind a widow and four daughters. Not only was Jerome a great athlete, but he was also one of the best loved Blazers both past and present for his friendly demeanor and his service to the community.

May the memory of the servant of God Jerome be eternal! :'(

Sadly, youre probably right. It is Atlanta, after all. Our teams (usually) dont have any trouble making the playoffs, but dont expect us to hang around very long.

Not liking this. :'( One of the best players on my home town Blazers (NBA) team, Wesley Matthews, is out for the rest of the season after blowing out an Achilles tendon.
