    2018 FIFA World Cup

    One of the Finnish news sites I go to daily had a big headline that said basically "F*** Sweden" Not even in the tournament and still hating on a team that is. An Austrian website talked about how Germany has already proven they can't win in winter in Russia, now they've shown they can't win in summer either. Two teams not in the World Cup (Finland and Austria) still talking smack about their rivals who did make it.

    Coyotes Bring Back the Kachina as New Third Uniform

    Is there such thing as a good 1970's leisure suit?

    Touchdown Celebration Appreciation

    Desmond Howard had been striking that pose all season, in the Rose Bowl, Mario Bailey chose to copy it. Howard later whined "he can come over to my house and see it if he wants." Bailey replied "OK, I'll do that and I'll bring my national champions ring so he can see what that looks like"

    Powder Blue Across MLB Today For Dad

    What's funny is my dad has always hated powder blue.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Who is he supposed to root for, or should he not watch at all?
  6. The only one who comes to mind is Kevin Durant with Golden State.

    What if the MLB had promotion and relegation?

    Would minor league teams that shared their parent club names (Iowa Cubs, for example) have to change their names, or only when they get promoted to the same level (Iowa Cubs and Chicago Cubs), or just live with it?

    When the CFL Expands....

    Where would they play? It may be make believe, but some semblance of reality is nice here and there.

    Your least favorite team color combination.

    All my life, I've never heard of purple and gold being easter colors. Given the amount of purple and gold in my closet right now, I know what I'm wearing next Easter. Which is actually my niece's birthday, so I might wear something different, depends on the type of party she has.

    Choking / Cursed Franchises

    Isn't naming them the Brooklyn Nets like calling them the Arlington Cowboys or Santa Clara 49ers?
  11. I am a Penguins fan, I do not care for Sidney Crosby, but I'm glad he's on the team. I am a SF Giants fan, I never liked Barry Bonds, but I was glad he was helping my team win. What players are on your favorite team, but you really don't like other than he helps your team?Though the Mariners are not my team, I still like them, and never liked Ken Griffey Jr., though I saw his minor league debut in Bellingham and began my dislike of him there.
  12. Personal preference: 1. Winnipeg (Laine) 2. Vegas (Fleury) 3. Tampa Bay 4. Washington (always disliked them and my friend is a big Ovechkin fan who likes to rub it in)

    Lost Sports Logos?

    So why Baltimore Browns? An expansion team taking the same name as an existing team? Surprised we didn't have Carolina Colts or Jacksonville Jets then. No matter how "official" they try to claim it, I know what happened.

    Corporate Sponsorship Examples

    When I worked for the Alaska (then Anchorage) Aces, the players had individual sponsors listed on the back under their number. Most were car dealerships, fencing companies, construction companies or stuff like that, but there was an argument every year about who would get to be "Mr. Prime Beef".

    Failed Franchise Expansion & Relocations

    Again, I don't know if this counts, but my program from the 1983 MLB All-Star Game in Comiskey had a 2 page ad spread touting the possibilities should MLB ever expand to Vancouver. I went to a Mariners exhibition game in Vancouver a couple years later and the people of Vancouver were hoping to use it as a convincing point should MLB expand.
