When success is subjective

I’ve always been a fan of sports. Not just sports, I guess you could say that I’m a fan of competition. I love some of the craziness you can find on ESPN 2 late at night, and I really wish that ESPN 8, ‘The Ocho’, was a real thing. I’m the kind of guy who…

8150 days: A Los Angeles Kings fan tale

After purchasing some concert tickets from a broker/buddy he asks me, “Hey, I have an extra pair of tickets for tonight’s Kings game, do you want ’em?” I had never been to a Kings game before, but wasn’t about to turn down free tickets. My wife Chris and I went to the game and watched…

Visiting enemy territory

It was the day before Mother’s Day and my wife and I were sitting on the couch watching the Ranger’s game on TV. Playoff hockey is always great, but this year is even better than usual because the L. A. Kings had beat their first two opponents and had advanced to play the Phoenix Coyotes…

2012 NHL Hockey Playoff Predictions

Last year I posted my 2011 NHL Hockey Playoff Predictions, and I ended up going 7-1 in the first round. I came up with Vancouver playing Boston in the finals, but my finals prediction ended up failing. Still, a pretty good showing. With the playoffs getting set to start on Wednesday, it’s time to give…

For a while there were something like 8 teams separated by less than 10 points. Completely nerve-wracking as a fan. But also, completely awesome! With…

Las Vegas Bowl

I still have never been to a pro football game, but yesterday I did go to my second ever college game. The first game I ever went to was Michigan Vs USC in the Rose Bowl. I think the year was 1979, but I’m not sure. Last night was the Las Vegas Bowl at Sam…

Are you ready for some football?

Before I get started, Todd, I apologize. I promise not to write too many more times about football. Today was the first Sunday of the regular football season. I spent the morning at the office finishing up a project. Once the football games started, I found myself checking scores and checking out how my fantasy…

Fantasy Football newbie

I’ve never been much of a football fan. But just about everybody I know is a big time football nut. So it makes it tough to hang around the water cooler when you don’t know a field goal from a 2 point conversion. OK, I’m not a complete dumbass, I know the rules and scoring…
