  1. Wait, you didn't expect the officiating in the playoffs to be good, did you? Bad officiating in the Stanley Cup Playoffs has basically become a tradition. In the last ten years or so, I've come to realize that regardless of what the NHL says at the beginning of the season in regards to their emphasis on some penalty, or that they the same call that is made in Game 1 of the regular season will be called the same in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. I now just do what I assume every other fan does and just do this: I did too. I saw the open net, open Golden Knight and was like oh boy, but when the Vegas players didn't start celebrating, I figured Holtby saved it some how and he did. I wasn't sure at first with Tuch, because I thought he was just relieved that he had tied the game.

    2018 NCAA Tournament Bracket Wallpaper

    The Round of 64 is now complete. History was made on Friday March 16, 2018 with the first ever 16 seed defeating a 1 seed: UMBC Retrievers defeating Overall Number One Seed, Virginia, 74-54. Bracket Wallpaper has bee updated. Enjoy!!

    College Basketball 2017-18: Road to the Alamo

    Sorry, fell into a trance where this UMBC team beat Virginia. Thankfully that trance is over and I'm back in real...wait what just happened? I actually watched the entire second half and UMBC never looked scared, intimidated and Virginia looked confused, frustrated and cold until about the 10 minute mark of the second half. Of couse everytime UMBC got up by 12-14, I'd look down at the game clock on my screen and I swear it was going in slow motion. Congrats to UMBC, in the 5-6 years I've been doing bracket wallpaper, I know eventually a 16 seed would beat a 1, little did I know it would be the overall number one. Also in case anyone isn't aware - the first 16 seed upsets a 1 seed on the 16th of March, how did I not see this coming?
  5. Well it's that time of year again, where there is basketball madness in March and my Bracket Wallpaper. I was happy with the majority of last year's design, but did change a few things, including a new font. Not sure if it's an upgrade or downgrade from last year's font -which is still in use for the Regional Sites. 3/16: Round of 64 complete. 3/21: Round of 32 Bracket Available. With other adjustments, I didn't see what I felt was enough room for the First Four by itself, so I just put the matchups in their respective sections of the brackets and will just add the winners after Tuesday/Wednesday.

    Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    For those that want to know how Marleau was welcomed back in San Jose, here's the tribute video and reception: https://www.nhl.com/video/sharks-celebrate-marleaus-return/t-290937600/c-54052403 Sharks won the game 3-2.

    2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    The local ESPN Radio (probably a national show) said the following about an hour before the game: "We expect a 1-1 game tonight, which means it's probably going to be a 11-12 game" We're getting close to that (one team even has 11). FYI: No it wasn't Tony Romo that predicted it.

    2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    Thanks. That's what I figured. I also thought I saw Any Reid half down the sideline complaining to the refs after the play and thought he was asking about that rule.

    2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    Apparently KC's Defense can't stop athletic freight trains masking themselves as Tight Ends/Wide Receivers, not that I could either. That's just one of many reasons I'm not playing in the NFL. (if I was I'd be a Kicker - boot the ball through the uprights, kick the ball off, go get a snack...). I do have a question for anyone that is or wants to pretend to be an NFL rules expert: On the Offensive PI where Crabtree caught the ball, the clock was running because of the review - why was there no ten second run off because of an offensive penalty. I'm assuming it's because of the review where it went from a running clock to a stopped clock there was a ten second run off. Which would make sense if the clock started on the snap, but the official seemed to indicate that the clock would start of the ready for play, and that's what I saw happen, which would in turn show me it's a running clock. Anyway, just curious as the ends of games in NCAA and NFL tend to get crazy confusing.

    2017-18 NCAA Football Thread

    hmm, Florida throws the ball deep...wins the game. Honestly, after that clock gaff by the Gators, I though we were headed for OT and a Vols win. I know McElwain's is basically a mesh of elements of three or four offensive styles, with window-dressing/deception being the foundation, but it's quite apparent it's not really working SEC, at least not consistently. Gators are relying too much on their defense. Yes, they are good, but when they're on the field for 3/4 of the game they're eventually going to get tired and burned. Florida needs to pick an offensive style. In my opinion, the athletes are built for the spread. I think McElwain should let the offense loose, he has athletes (Cleveland, Powell, and if/when Calloway returns) to succeed in this offense. He doesn't have the players or schemes to run the current style of offense. Franks is young and a freshman but he has an arm on him, let him throw the ball.

    2017 NHL Offseason

    We'll see how it works out for Marleau. It's not surprising that he decided to move on. It's just surprising that he chose an eastern team. Though I'm glad he stayed away from LA/Ana and yes, of course, I wanted him to retire a Shark, that's still possible, but at the same time it's a business and he's never been a free agent before, so it was probably exciting. Sad to see him go, but hope he succeeds in Toronto, just no Sharks-Maple Leafs Stanley Cup Finals until he retires, please. (yes, I did just utter that sentence. Yes I know, I laughed too, kind of...) I know it's been reported by multiple sources, but until the Sharks announce it via their website and/or Twitter, I'm still not convinced Thornton has signed and still could decide to go anywhere, say Toronto. I know they were one of many teams inquiring about him. I still believe he wants to play with Marleau, but Thornton was pretty adamant about (more than Patty) not wanting to leave San Jose. Of course, the Sharks could just be waiting for Marleau to decide/sign with Toronto before announcing the return of Thornton, which is reports of Thornton signing in San Jose are true, that this is probably what's happening.

    2017 NHL Offseason

    Not many know the dollar amount being offered but the consensus seems to be $5M/yr. for 2 years and $4M for 3 years. Both for Thornton and Marleau. However, I've not heard of the Sharks offering 3 years, yet...

    2017 NHL Offseason

    Yeah, I would say many of us fans know that it's probably the right move to move on. I know it's not the right mindset for the possible/potential success (now and future) of the team. I kind of want the Sharks to keep them, just to keep the two away from LA and Anaheim. I don't want Marleau to leave a little more than I don't want Jumbo to leave. At the same time, I want the two win a Stanley Cup before their careers are over. FTF reports that Marleau has a 2yr deal on the table, and the Sharks had a one year deal for Thornton but moved up their offer to Thornton to 2yrs. With Thornton wanting to play with Marleau it seems likely that they will either push for that third year and walk or accept the two-year deal and see what happens. Guess it depends on how much Thornton and Marleau want that third year, stay in San Jose, play together. Good thing I'm not a GM, I'm so indecisive.

    2017 NHL Offseason

    Rumors swirling: Thornton waiting to see if Marleau resigns Sharks. If he does, Thornton resigning is likely. If Marleau signing with a new team might be on condition of signing Thornton too. Pending both like the $ amount and term/year length. http://www.csnbayarea.com/sharks/thornton-marleau-inching-closer-leaving-sharks https://www.nhl.com/news/joe-thornton-patrick-marleau-free-agency-upcoming/c-290224280 Given the Sharks other talented, younger players and the contracts of other veterans due up in a year or two, I would be surprised if the can give Thornton and Marleau what each is asking for, both in terms of dollar amount and contract length, and if it's truly the right move for the franchise. Yeah, I want them back, but just not sure how realistic it is. Word also is that the package deal of sorts is Thornton initiated the request, and it sounds like it's for any team interested in him (Interested in Me? Sign Marleau too or no deal). If they truly are a package deal, I think that means no Kings, no Ducks. I just don't either having the cap space to sign both, nor the interest in both.

    San Jose Sharks Adidas concept

    So a few years ago when the Sharks were hosting a Stadium Series game against the Kings, I came up with a concept of what they might wear. Many people said it should be used as the full-time set. However, others said that the colors meshed too much and it bogged down the design. So, with Adidas set to unveil the uniforms tomorrow, I thought I'd throw my design in what I would hope the Sharks would do. Granted, I'm not expecting much. I'd be pleasantly surprised if there was something even close to this. Shoulder patches were left blank as I didn't know which one they were going to go with. I just saw that reveal in the teaser trailer this afternoon. So the orange could be removed, but I might actually be getting used to the orange...oh my, what is happening!
