    I have never seen the Stanley Cup champs getting a title belt (that's not from the WWE) to go along with the Stanley Cup.  I have no idea if this was something Tampa Bay made up, which would be pretty presumptuous of them, or this was something the NHL made up.

    You’ll never see contraction in US pro sports. Realistically, there’s not enough top-tier talent to support more than around 26 teams in each, and for football and baseball there’s really only 26 or 28 suitable markets, but contraction will never ever ever happen. 

    Bingo.  You'll see more situations like the Expos, Coyotes, and Hornicans where the league will serve as a caretaker owner until they can sell to a local group or one that'll relocate.

    I would like to have my account deleted. I will no longer be following "pro sports" and wish to have my account erased. Thank you.

    NBA's going to resume.  Not sure if the LA teams will participate.

    The NBA’s players voted to continue the playoffs inside the Disney bubble, a day after a Milwaukee Bucks-led protest brought the league to a temporary, screeching halt, sources tell The Athletic.

    In a Thursday meeting at the Coronado Springs resort, the players agreed to resume play, though Thursday’s three playoff games would be postponed.

     

    On Wednesday night, the Lakers and Clippers voted to end the playoffs, while the other bubble teams voted to continue. All of this centers around anger and frustration over the shooting death of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man who was gunned down by police in Kenosha, Wisc.

     

    The two LA teams are on board with resuming, including LeBron James, who was a driving force behind the Lakers’ original vote.

     

    The players do want to find better ways to push their message of racial justice, stretching beyond protesting during the national anthem and wearing “Black Lives Matter t-shirts.”

     

    The mood on campus Wednesday night after the first players’ meeting was relaxed, loose even, as people from all professions (players coaches, media, doctors, referees, etc.) unwound with beverages of their choice well into the morning hours. The reason was obvious — there would be no work on Thursday, no playoff games or practices.

    Sounds like both LA teams are going to boycott remainder of season.  

    I'm hearing the final decision will be based on the outcome of the Board of Governors' meeting tomorrow on what action ownership will take to help the players fight for justice while isolated in the bubble.

    4.  Detroit Tigers:  This is so frustrating.  I'd probably have the Tigers cap be 2, arguably even 1 if the logo was bigger.  Just a hair.  Use the space!  Get swole!  Let me see every flourish and marking of the old english letter, don't make it the size of a pretzel bite!  "Here you go, son!  Enjoy your Detroit Tigers cap!"  "Oh boy, Pop!  I can't wait to see the logo!"

    (I apologize to the ghost of Ty Cobb for using a gif featuring a non-white, but if it's any consolation, Ty, he was born in Detroit)

    And yet they had it right in 2018.

    Yep that's it - SyPhi.  Wonder whatever happened to him.

    I remember that he got a job and left here because after staring at a computer screen all day he had no desire to keep doing so when he got home.
