  1. 2018 MLB Season

    Reports are circulating that Robinson Cano will be suspended 80 games for violations of MLB's PED policy.
  2. Players on your team you don't like

    Can't stand Josh Bailey with the Islanders. Outside of a contract year, he can't be bothered to give any kind of an effort on the ice. Adding Andrew Ladd for the same reason. Got a huge payday then forgot how to play hockey.
  3. My preferences are: 1. The west. 2. Tampa Bay 3. Washington With the caveat that if in OITGDNHL fashion Vegas wins it all the parade must be on the strip at night, be loaded with dancing girls and strippers, and be choreographed like a show.
  4. No, I'm not a Sharks fan. I'm an Islanders fan. One who hopes John Tavares stays put. However, to answer your question, I did expect them to beat Vegas because I thought that Vegas would be "hungover" from their sweep of LA, the Sharks being a more experienced playoff team, and Marc-Ander Fleury's propensity to have a number of bad games in the playoffs. While my third point did happen where Fleury gave up the number of goals I'd seen in the past, Vegas didn't come out in the second round with the hangover I expected. I didn't expect San Jose to beat Nashville or Winnipeg, but I did have a reasonable expectation they'd beat Vegas.
  5. Nothing says spring like a Sharks playoff exit. I hate to admit it but I'm enjoying Vegas' playoff run. It's the only thing keeping me watching and following the playoffs thanks to the ineptitude of my own team.

    It was just announced that Ichiro will be transitioning with immediate effect to a new position as special assistant to the chairman of the Mariners and is no longer on the 40 man roster.
  7. Tampa Bay Lightning Ban Bruins Gear In Some Sections

    I don't like the policy Tampa Bay is using, and I also despise the policies of teams such as Nashville that restrict ticket purchases to limited geographical areas. However, people need to remember the words "revocable license" which apply to tickets to sporting events, and I as a consumer can choose not to give the owners of franchises who choose to go this route my money.
  8. Wilson gets to cool his heels while he's suspended for the next three games.
  9. Where have all the goons gone? Back in my day, Wilson would have been run through the boards and his remains pounded into the ice by the likes of a Dave Schultz, Bob Probert, Tie Domi, Chris Simon or even a George Parros... Wilson and Marchand in the ECF would be a joy to watch.
  10. MLB changes 2018?

    Today I've realized the only jersey in the Padres set that I like is the camo...
  11. Amen! Those doucheballs are the only thing keeping me from the Vegas bandwagon. No one in sports is less deserving of anything good than those two morons, and that includes Garth Snow.
  12. Former Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson
  13. The Sharks playing about as disciplined a game as the Oakland Raiders.
  14. 2018 NFL Offseason

    I also want to add that I could have sworn it came out maybe in November or early December that Darnold was going to pull an Eli and not go to Cleveland if they picked him. Giants shouldn't have passed on Darnold, glad the Jets took him. Hopefully, they have the tools to develop him into what they envision.
