Voice of the 'Fan

General discussion on sports and assorted other matters.

  1. An Angel without wings

    This was posted first on one of my personal blogs off-site earlier this morning. Edited because the photo that was included didn't transmit in transition:
    ================================================== =======
    Memphis Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins shredded the officials after Memphis lost to Minnesota on Saturday, calling the NBA zebras "inconsistent" and "arrogant".

    Jenkins has never met baseball umpire Angel Hernandez.

  2. Here we go again---the card hoarders are back

    Topps 2022 series 1 just went live less than a week ago. I waited until today to take a run up to Walmart to see about scoring some packs or a blaster box.

    Turns out that was a mistake. Nothing was left. Only a few 2021 factory sets, priced at $60 each, were available, plus some WNBA and Nascar merch that went live earlier in the winter.

    A clerk told me the shipments arrive in the morning, and, apparently, the card hoarding pseudo-investors of 2020 are back, lying in ...

  3. How a Hall of Fame career falls apart---again

    I wrote this on one of my personal blogs earlier:
    ======================================
    Mention the name "Touchdown" Eddie Brown to fans of the Albany Firebirds in the 90's, and you hear a lot of praise. Brown and the 'Birds left town after winning the 1999 ArenaBowl, but to many, Brown remained an area legend.

  4. From champ to chump in one easy lesson

    With apologies to Capital One's ad campaign, Dave Roberts had the easiest decision in the history of decisions. And he whiffed.

    After Max Scherzer declared himself out of Game 6 of the NLCS vs. Atlanta due to a tired, or, dead arm, due to being used in relief in this postseason, Roberts, seeking to deliver a 2nd World Series to the Los Angeles Dodgers, had just activated David Price, who'd been left off the NLCS roster, after Joe Kelly, his game 5 starter/opener, was forced out by ...

  5. A laser pointer can be hazardous to a ballplayer's health, but some fans don't get it

    In July 2009, all of America saw some Philadelphia Phillies fan shine a red laser pointer in the faces of St. Louis' Skip Schumaker and Julio Lugo. The umpires tried to find the perp, but the Philadelphia faithful protected one of their own, allowing him to escape.

    12 years later, another red light disrupted a game between Boston and the Yankees. What was not clear was whether or not the perp in this case was caught.

    Last night, some drunken moron shined his light on ...
