I don't really like my local teams (Ravens, Redskins) and/or they suck (Nationals, Redskins).  But I can agree with everyone here when they say "YANKEES SUCK" or "FUCK THE COWBOYS".

I don't mind rooting for the Steelers.  *hide*

OH, but I do love me college sports.  I will always support the Terps!  FEAR THE TURTLE!

Vancouver Canucks made it to the list at number 5 LOL
Quote
It’s remarkable how arrogant the fan base of a team with zero Stanley Cups, no Hall of Fame players, and two homoerotic Swedish twins that seem physically afraid of the playoffs can act. It’s literally mind-boggling! These days, when they’re not too busy demanding trades on local radio shows or reminiscing about that year they almost signed Wayne Gretzky, you can usually find Canucks fans preaching about how hosting Jarome Iginla and the Canadian Olympic team will finally establish their city as a genuine hockey town (sort of like how marrying Lamar Odom made Khloe Kardashian a real celebrity – legitimacy by association).

Next time you see a suspected pyramid schemer in the corner of a trendy wine bar sporting a $200 hair cut, $900 suit, and emanating a distinct air of scumbag from his Drakkar Noir-soaked pores - go ahead and ask him about Kevin Bieksa, because odds are he’s a Vancouver Canucks fan and doesn't want to cry himself to sleep again before throwing out obscene predictions about the Norris Trophy.



I see that Edmonton Oilers not on it since they dont even have a fanbase LOL

The darts announcer must have been desperate not to laugh when he had to shout, 5!! Fumbling with his darts, poor throws, maybe the guy was just nervous or as Colin Murray said afterwards, "You gotta know when to hold em, know when to fold em and know when to walk away from the bar" XD

ESPN's Jay Mariotti arrested by L.A. police
August 21, 2010 | 8:17 am

ESPN personalities and sports columnist Jay Mariotti was arrested overnight by Los Angeles police officers in the Pacific division.

He was booked on suspicion of a felony, but officials would not provide further details.

A source with knowledge of the case described it as a domestic disturbance charge involving his girlfriend. He was being held on $50,000 bail.

Mariotti is a well-known sports commentator who can be seen on the ESPN show "Around the Horn." He also writes for a sports website called Fanhouse.com. Known for his outspoken views, he used to write a sports column for the Denver Post and the Chicago Sun-Times.

Details of the arrest were not immediately available.

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP)

The Little League team from Japan ended the United States' five-year reign as World Series champions.

The team from Tokyo limited Waipahu, Hawaii, to four singles, and got a homer and three RBIs from Konan Tomori to take the Little League World Series title with a 4-1 victory Sunday.

For the first time since 2003, a team from Japan is flying home with the championship banner.

Hawaii, which had scored 29 runs over its previous three games, came up short at the plate against Tokyo.

Hawaii's only run came on an error off a sacrifice bunt in the fourth, but reliever Ichiro Ogasawara worked out of a second-and-third jam with a strikeout and a weak bouncer.

Ryusuke Ikeda got the win with after striking out five and allowing four hits over three innings, before Ogasawara pitched the final three, striking out three to get his third save.

Japan's players gravitated to the mound after the game to scoop up bags of dirt to take home as mementos, as family members watched proudly from the first-base stands.

After exchanging handshakes at the plate with Hawaii, Japan also got another souvenir — a banner that read ''2010 Little League World Series Champions.'' They finished the tournament a perfect 5-0.

Cheered on by Hawaii fans waving U.S. flags and tea leaves they've been carrying around for good luck, the Waipahu All-Stars put on a valiant effort on the mound and with the glove. Thirteen-year-old lefty starter Cody Maltezo, who hadn't pitched in roughly a month, held Japan to four hits over 5 2-3 innings, and Noah Shackles' fine stop of a hard bouncer at third likely saved two runs from scoring in the third.

But the players from the West region couldn't get the clutch hits that had propelled their unlikely run of four victories in four elimination games over four days into the Little League final.

So the All-Star team from Tokyo's Edogawa Minami Little League became the first international team to take the crown since Curacao in 2004. A team from Tokyo's Musashi-Fuchu league was the last winner from Japan, the previous year.

Through the week, Japan's fans clad in bright red hats and white T-shirts cheered the team with rhythmic clapping from the stands, at times to the melody of ''Popeye the Sailor Man,'' the muscle-bound cartoon character.

But pitching and defense were the forte of a squad with a team ERA of 1.92 entering Sunday.

Natsuki Mizumachi took a few steps to his right and dropped to his knees to rob Kahoea Akau of a hit to center in the fifth. Twelve-year-old second baseman Koutaro Kamikura followed that up with a nice stop to his right of a hard bouncer by Ty DeSa to save another hit.

The 12-year-old Tomori tacked on two insurance runs in the sixth with his opposite-field shot to right.

Chants of ''USA! USA!'' echoed through Lamade Stadium after Shackles reached on an error with one out in the sixth.

But Ogasawara got a strikeout for the second out, and Teruma Nagata happily jogged in from right when he caught the final out.

MELBOURNE, Sept. 25 (UPI) -- The finals of Australian Rules Football will be played again after the championship game ended in a tie.

For the first time since 1977 the Grand Finals of Australian Rules Football, or "footy" as it is called here, has ended in a tie. The two suburban Melbourne teams, Collingwood and St. Kilda, fought to a 68-68 tie.

Australian Football League rules require a second game to be played in a week's time to decide the champion.

St. Kilda has not won a national championship in 44 years, while Collingwood last won in 1990.

Unlike American Football, Australian Rules Football is played on a oval pitch with the teams playing continuously. The player may carry the oblong-shaped ball for a limited time before bouncing it on the ground, passing it to a teammate or kicking it between uprights for a goal. No protective padding is used and tackling is permitted. (http://www.upi.com/Sports_News/2010/09/25/Australian-Rules-Football-final-is-a-tie/UPI-34071285439664/)

I mean seriously, under "Laker News" we get Yahoo referring us to articles written by "freelance" schmucks by Associated Content (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news?slug=ac-7027852) (their version of Bleacher Report) that gets their fucking facts wrong "O'Neal won four titles with the Los Angeles Lakers" to Yahoo leading their news with "Blogger's View" makes me think just throw a suit on a retired player will give you more insight. How many Tim McCarvers will you get in this day and age. There's a reason why there are those who "blog" and those who work for major publications. :catglare:

Well something from the high school level:

The top-ranked Kahuku High football team lost its appeal yesterday to school administrators for using an ineligible player and will have to forfeit the season, it was announced yesterday by the Oahu Interscholastic Association.

As a result, Mililani won the OIA Red Conference title, and the two teams involved in tonight's third-place game between Leilehua and Waianae automatically advance to the state tournament playoff that begins next weekend.

The infraction was self-reported by Kahuku at an OIA sanctioning committee meeting on Thursday night that led to the forfeiture. The Red Raiders appealed the ruling yesterday but failed to sway the committee.

A statement released by the OIA said the league "unfortunately and regrettably must declare Kahuku High School ineligible to participate in any further varsity football games this season, and must forfeit all games in which it used an ineligible player."  (http://www.staradvertiser.com/news/hawaiinews/20101106_kahuku_forfeits.html)

Now, I actually have really strong feelings toward this (this isn't the school I graduated from) although digging into the background of this story, I feel bad for all the players who had to go through this and knowing this community very well, they are really strong and football is the bloodline.  I know many won't understand but for any high school sport that a community gets involved, it shows, usually, half a stadium is filled with their fans and last night, only couple thousand, big difference in the crowd, even though my high school team did win the championship last night, I did wish they would play without the ineligible player, and it won't be the same without this particular team in the state tournament, well just something that has been running through my mind since last night, and it shows that a community-driven team can show their pride in defeat

When the University of Oregon Men's Basketball Team opens up Pac-10 play in January, they'll do so inside a newly unveiled Matthew Knight Arena. The arena is named after the son of chief donor and Nike Chairman Phil Knight. Matthew tragically passed away at just 34 years of age after a scuba diving accident in 1994. To really take the new arena over the top, as we all know the University of Oregon loves to do, they enlisted the help of Nike Vice President for Design and Special Projects Tinker Hatfield to design the arena's new basketball floor.

With his design, Hatfield wanted to pay tribute to the tree covered region and the "Tall Firs," Oregon's original championship basketball team from 1939. The stencil graphics, which were completed by United Services in Idaho, represent the view from beneath a forest full of fir trees. It took over 2,500 man hours to complete the graphics on the court.

In addition to the "Tall Firs," Hatfield wanted to salute long time supporter Pat Kilkenny and his family. Kilkenny also served as the school's Director of Athletics from 2007 to 2009. At the top of the floor is "Kilkenny" Floor text. In between are three graphics that tell you a story about the Kilkenny family. The first graphic on the left represents Morrow County and Heppner, Oregon, where Pat Kilkenny grew up. The middle graphic is a 70s style interlocked University of Oregon logo adorned with shamrocks, symbolic of Kilkenny's education and Irish heritage. The last graphic to the right represents the San Diego Sunset, where Kilkenny became an entrepreneur and still resides today.

Centered on the court is the Matthew Knight Arena logo, designed by Todd Van Horne. The logo is inspired by the innovation spirit of the University of Oregon and elements of Matthew Knight's life. The first source of inspiration came from the architecture of the arena itself. Also saluted is Phil Knight's affinity for Japanese symbolism, which explains why the logo is shaped like a Torii Gate. The Matt Knight logo in relation to the Oregon "O" represents the arch of the arena, as well as Matthew's famous smile.

Another intriguing element of the court's design is the "Deep in the Woods" text seen below the Matt Knight Arena logo. Not just a catchphrase, the "Deep in the Woods" text is meant to give visitors the sense that they're out of their element.

The court itself is Connor Sports Flooring Quicklock Portable. It is made of 6,944 square feet of Northern Hard Maple from a FSC Certified Forest. The floor consists of 225 interlocking panels that weigh approximately 45,000 pounds.

Take a look at a few photos of the new cutting-edge court below, as well as a video interview with Tinker Hatfield.

9 Rules For Watching Football With Guys

(http://img691.imageshack.us/img691/3638/a2b484daf94d31a24ae3fd1.jpg)

Thumbs down on the pink jersey, ladies, and pick your team wisely. One woman's guy friends give her some guidelines on the serious business of co-ed football viewing.

By Erin Meanley

The last time I watched football with a guy, he said I needed to do a better job of keeping track of who had the ball. So I decided to ask a few of my guy friends how a woman should act when she goes with a date to a football-watching party. Jason, Ross, Pete, and John all had a lot to say about this matter, so I'm glad I asked! The art of watching football is serious business, girls. Here are their tips for appropriate behavior on Game Day:

1. DON'T wear a pink jersey
"A jersey isn't necessary unless you are a true fan. If you're wearing a player's jersey, you should know a lot about that player. T-shirts with team logos or colors are fine. Do not put your own name on a jersey unless you are under the age of 10. Don't wear pink versions of jerseys, t-shirts, etc." —Pete, 29, Dallas

2. DO know your refreshment options
"Drink beer. Out of the bottle. Solo cups are acceptable. Out of the can, not as hot." —Ross, 31, Burbank, CA

"Really, the only acceptable drinks are beers, and the only acceptable beers are Coors, Miller, and Bud. Do NOT drink wine." —Pete

3. DO choose a side wisely
"Root for a team you actually like, not simply the one I happen to like. If you grew up in Philly but you are rooting for the Cowboys because I like them, I'll think you're not really interested in football and/or you're a traitor to your city." —Pete

"Root for whomever you like but not because their uniforms are cute. Have a favorite player or coach or something (but if it's because he's cute, keep that to yourself)."
—Ross

4. DO do your homework
"Before you show up, you should know who is playing, who are the quarterbacks for each team, what each team's record is (or just generally if they are good or bad this year), and if there are any big news stories involving players from either team. This really isn't hard, just read the preview article on espn.com before the game." —Pete

5. DO pay attention
"While watching the game, you should know what the score is, who has the ball, what quarter it is, etc. Most of this information should be somewhere on the screen at all times." —Pete

6. DO ask questions ... during commercials
"It's okay if you don't understand why a penalty was called or why the handsome quarterback man immediately threw the ball into the ground (to stop the clock), but ask at the commercial break. If you ask enough questions early on, by 4th quarter you should have a pretty good idea of what's going on and dudes will feel like they taught you something." —Ross

"Guys like to teach you about the game, so ask him to explain how the rules work. Learn to watch the game the way he sees it. It might not make too much sense at first, but your understanding will grow as more pieces of the game are revealed." —Jason, 30, Phoenix

7. DO respect the sport
"Do not criticize. If the rules don't make sense at first, don't give the 'that's dumb' response. The rules are there for a reason, and the decisions made by the coaches and players usually happen based off the rules. It is important to be open to learning the rules, and being dismissive is a turn-off." —Jason

8. DO ease up on the trivia, Cliff Claven
"Unless you're watching figure skating, never try to upstage a guy with sports trivia knowledge. I had a friend with a girlfriend that would constantly spew out stats like, 'Did you see so-and-so? They passed for 300 yards last week!' It was annoying — girls shouldn't try too hard to be one of the guys. Just show interest, cheer when appropriate, and it never hurts to offer to go get beers." —John, 30, San Diego

9. DO show or feign interest
"If you become bored during a game … FAKE IT! There's nothing more annoying to me than when a girl pulls out her BlackBerry and starts checking Facebook." —John


"The best way to make yourself more attractive to a guy while watching football with guys is to appear to be a legitimate fan. You're not watching the game just to meet guys, or because your friend dragged you there, but because you like football and know something about the game. Basically, be comfortable and look like you're enjoying yourself and the game." —Pete

Homeless man is the king of fantasy football

Three million people competed at fantasy football on ESPN.com this year. One man managed to rise above all of them, and he did it despite not having a computer. Or a place to live.

For the sake of comparison, I finished under .500 in a league of 12 people, and I spend all day with my face buried in NFL news, stats and highlights.

Obviously, Nathan Harrington, 33, of Salem, Mass., knows something I don't. Harrington ended up homeless after needing back surgery, going on medical leave from his job, and being forced to leave his home because it was condemned.

And still, he was better than over 3 million people at fantasy football.

He used computers at his father's nursing home, his mother's house, and the library. He knocked on neighbors' doors and asked if he could use their computers.

If you're wondering about specifics, Harrington drafted Arian Foster and picked up Brandon Lloyd as a free agent. He made trades for Adrian Peterson and Dwayne Bowe.

Oddly, Tony Romo(notes) was his quarterback, but when Romo went down with a season-ending injury,
Harrington had to make due with a string of borderline fantasy quarterbacks. He clinched the top spot behind Tim Tebow's surprising Week 17 performance against the Chargers. From The Salem News:

"My fantasy football was the one thing that kind of seemed to be going right at the time," Harrington said. "There was a lot to be upset about, but the one thing that was steady and heading in a positive direction was the fantasy football. So I thought I might as well stick with it and ride it out. Thank God I did."

For his unbelievable performance, Harrington won a $3,500 Best Buy gift card, which he's selling to his mother for $2,500 cash.

His mom jobs him :lol: prolly told him with the time he spent on fantasy, shoulda went and got a job! medical leave pfffft just making excuses.

This is an interesting article, the top sports no surprise but hockey? really?

While Gap Narrows, Professional Football Retains Lead over Baseball as Favorite Sport
January 20, 2011 | PR Newswire Association LLC

NEW YORK, Jan. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- It's the eternal debate among sports fans – football or baseball? Most die-hard sports fans will always say both, but, if forced to choose, football wins yet again. Three in ten Americans who follow at least one sport (31%) say professional football is their favorite sport while 17% say baseball. This is a narrowing of the gap from last year when over one-third (35%) of sports fans said professional football was their favorite sport and 16% said it was baseball.

These are some of the results of The Harris Poll of 2,331 adults surveyed online between December 6 and 13, 2010 by Harris Interactive.

Looking at how other sports fared, just over one in ten sports fans (12%) say college football is their favorite sport while 7% say it is auto racing, 6% say men's professional basketball, 5% say hockey, and 4% each say men's soccer and men's college basketball. Most other sports are favorites for 2% or less of sports fans. Two sports however, women's professional basketball and women's college basketball, are not favorites for any sports fan.

There are some fluctuations in favorites over time. Since this question was first asked in 1985, professional football has gone up 7 points from 24% of sports fans saying it was their favorite sport then to 31% saying so now. Baseball, on the other hand, has gone down 6 points from 23% in 1985 to 17% today.

Who likes football and baseball… and who really doesn't

When it comes to the top sports, different groups are more likely to cite them as favorites. African Americans (45%), Baby Boomers (aged 46-64) (37%), and Easterners (34%) are more likely to say professional football is their favorite sport while Echo Boomers (aged 18-33) (23%), Hispanics (26%), and Midwesterners (26%) are less likely to do so. When it comes to baseball, Matures (those 65 and older) (21%), Hispanics (20%), and those with a high school or less education (20%) are more likely to cite it as their favorite sport.  African Americans (6%), those with some college education (12%) and Echo Boomers (13%) are least likely to say baseball is their favorite.

So What?

While football may be the favorite sport, there is a decline in popularity from last year. And, with the possibility looming of a player's lockout after this season ends, will fans stay loyal? In 1987 there was a strike and the popularity of the sport didn't suffer any lasting damage. And all the major sports have been hit by labor disagreements over the past two decades, including the canceling of the World Series in 1994 and the Stanley Cup in 2005. What if there was no Super Bowl in 2012? Football will most likely survive, but that one day event is so different than both the hockey and baseball championships. Could you imagine no Super Bowl commercials?

Who would be the 5 you would place in your city's Hall of Fame?

I live in Hawaii so there wouldn't be a really long list of candidates.

That said, the topic would do GANGBUSTERS on talk radio, teevee, newspapers, etc.

1. Duke Kahanamoku

Then again Honolulu by the constitution is huge in comparison to any other city in the world :P

1. Duke
2. Wally Yonamine
3. Dave Shoji
4. Patsy Mink (It may not be popular but why not)
5. Kevin Asano (no one else can say they won the Silver in a sport not dominated by a European country)

I came upon this video of Antonio Reina in a series training session and wow. I'm impressed for so many things, first that he's relatively young (he was barely 20 when he won the 800 m World Cup!  :shocked ) second, that even at 30 when he can't get faster anymore he's still able to do series of 300m at less than 13" per 100m  :shocked :shocked  and with a fuckin' blister in his foot  :shocked :shocked :shocked :shocked :shocked

Judoka Uchishiba sentenced to prison

TOKYO (AP)

Two-time Olympic judo champion Masato Uchishiba was sentenced Friday to five years in prison for raping a female member of a university judo club in 2011.

 In handing down his ruling, judge Tomonao Onizawa said the court ''cannot trust at all'' claims by Uchishiba that he had consensual sex with the student, Kyodo news agency reported.

Uchishiba, 34, who gold in the 66-kilogram class at the Athens and Beijing Olympics, is expected to appeal.

The judge said the woman's accusation of sexual assault while she was asleep was credible given that she could not stand up on her own after drinking too much alcohol at a restaurant. Prosecutors accused Uchishiba of intoxicating the student in order to take advantage of her inability to resist.

Uchishiba was arrested in December 2011 over the rape allegation and barred from all judo activities by the All Japan Judo Federation in January 2012.

The ruling is the latest in a series of embarrassing incidents to hit judo.

On Thursday, Japan's women's judo coach Ryuji Sonoda resigned over accusations he physically abused female judoka at a training camp before the London Olympics.

Japan failed to win a gold medal in men's judo at London. The only gold for the nation that invented the sport was won by Kaori Matsumoto in the women's 57-kilogram division.

Jay Onrait and Dan O’Toole are leaving TSN for Fox Sports
Sean Fitz-Gerald | 13/05/03 | Last Updated: 13/05/03 8:35 PM ET

Jay Onrait and Dan O’Toole are leaving Canadian television.

A year after the Wall Street Journal praised their efforts to “reinvigorate the genre” of sports highlight shows, the popular TSN anchors on Friday announced they are leaving for work in the United States. It has been reported they are leaving for Fox Sports.

Interview requests to TSN, as well as to the anchors, were not immediately answered.

“The moment I was paired with Dan on SportsCentre, I knew we had the chance to do something Canadians would really love,” Onrait said in a release distributed by TSN on Friday afternoon. “For the last decade we have received more love from our viewers than we could have ever imagined – and for this, we are eternally grateful.”

Onrait and O’Toole have inspired a legion of tributes on YouTube.

Great Kid - True Sportsmanship during Middle School Wrestling Event (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsMADf6EuB0#ws)

Justin Kievit, Middle School Wrestler, Lets Boy With Cerebral Palsy Win Match
By Dominique Mosbergen  |  Posted: 12/04/2012 12:58 pm EST Updated: 12/05/2012 4:26 pm EST

A video that exhibits the "true sportsmanship" of a 12-year-old boy and his plucky wrestling opponent has gone viral on Facebook.

The clip, which features seventh grade wrestlers Justin Kievit and Jared Stevens, has racked up more than 87,000 shares since Justin's dad posted it on Facebook less than a week ago.

97 Rock Online explains:
Quote
Over the weekend a young wrestler from a Middle School in Tennessee did something that a lot of kids his age would not think about doing. He intentionally lost a match, but unintentionally won the hearts of anyone that watches his actions in the video.

“I think a lot of people are scared to put kids like me on the mat, but they don’t need to be,” Jared, a boy with cerebral palsy," told Franklin Home Page on Monday. His match with Justin had been his first.

Jared's father told the Tennesean that though his son has the physical capacity of a 6-month-old, his intellectual ability is close to his age level. Socially, his dad adds, Jared "hits it out of the park."

“Jared just likes to do stuff like everybody else," he told the Franklin Home Page. "There's a limit to what he can do, but something like wrestling, he can do that as much as he can do. He just enjoys being out there participating. He doesn't mind trying anything."

Clay Mayes, Jared's wrestling coach, said that the 13-year-old practices with his school's wrestling team every day.

When Jared expressed that he wanted to participate in a wrestling match, Mayes said he called his friend Randy Stevens (no relation), a coach at another middle school.

“It wasn’t about weight class,” Mayes told the Tennessean. “I told him to point me toward the kid who has the kindest heart.”

And that's how Justin Kievit got involved. In the clip, Justin can be seen shaking hands with Jared, before helping his opponent put an arm around him -- "pinning" him and therefore, winning.

“The first time he met Jared was when he shook hands with him before the match. So it really was spontaneous. They just picked this kid. If you watch the video, he just did an amazing job. There's not many adults comfortable putting hands on a disabled kid, much less another [7th grader],” Jared's dad said of his son's wrestling opponent.

Many people who have watched the video said that they were deeply touched by both the sportsmanship and bravery shown by the two young boys.

"Love it!! Love the spirit of both boys!!! Both my boys wrestle now... Can't wait to share this with them and their team," one Facebook user wrote.

"This has truly warmed my heart... thanks for sharing, what a wonderful act of kindness," another said.

Now I understand that when you're a player, when you're in the midst of a game, you don't always have time to actually turn around to look at the clock (to see how much time is left).  Unfortunately for these basketball players, the fans of the team that they were visiting understood that too.

So a writer from The Oklahoman wrote a piece to the city of Seattle (http://newsok.com/hey-seattle-can-we-all-just-get-along-now/article/3926268/?page=2) calling a truce due to the Seahawks being good and the Thunder being good as well.

I've personally made my piece with Sonicsgate, but just because the Seahawks are successful and the city has rallied behind them doesn't take away how the Sonics left Seattle.

I also see the tongue-in-cheek tone in the piece, but that's cold comfort to me who loves basketball. Oklahoma should love the Thunder, cause I would if they were still the Sonics, but it's still bittersweet to watch Kevin Durant get better and better. But, I'm okay with bittersweet, stuff like this just makes things straight bitter.

Korean Baseball Team Creates Robot Fans to Sit in Stands
By: Mike Cardillo | July 25, 2014

The Hanwha Eagles, a Korean professional baseball team, has created robot fans to digitally cheer up on the home team at its stadium in the city of Daejeon. No, this isn’t some sort of in-joke from Twitter between me and Stephen Douglas. Nope, by all accounts its a real thing and its happening.

Apparently fans can get their faces superimposed over the robots or send messages for the robots to display, which should provide a very significant boost for the Eagles’ players.

As a fan of soccer, I kinda feel sorry for American sports fans e.g. of NFL, MLB, NBA:

1)They don't have periods of crazy, crazy player transfers; are drafts from colleges/universities just as exciting?

2)American sports lack fans like these (except maybe for 1 or 2 MLS football clubs):
