Okay I will admit I am in complete shock over how the Detriot Lions have been doing. I mean this was a team that was NEVER on the radar and now all of a sudden they've turned the NFL Upsidedown. Things have gotten crazy in Pro-Football. All we need now is for Rod Serling to come in and do his Twilight Zone intro and things will be complete.

^ I think it's about time, myself.

Watching the Seahawks destroying the Bears; a little payback for the playoff defeat last year. ;D  The score just went up 31-17 with 12:39 left on the clock.

Okay folks here in thsi thread I'm introducing a new  aspect to make it more interesting. The EPIC FAIL award. The award given to the s[ports team, or athlete who has pulled what could be considered an epic fail.

And the first winner of this dreaded award is:   The Pittsburgh Steelers!

On the first play of their overtime game Tim Tebow QB for the Denver Broncos throws a pass 70 yards for the Broncos to get a touchdown, with not a Steeler in reach of the reciever. So to the Pittsburgh Steelers for letting your guard down and getting overconfident that you left yourselves wide open for a touchdown..THIS EPIC FAIL AWARD IS FOR YOU!!!!!!

So, the conference finals are determined, and one hell of a shocker is part of it!

The AFC title will feature the Baltimore Ravens playing on the road against the New England Patriots!  My pick: Baltimore 31-24

The NFC title will feature the surprising New York Giants in San Francisco against the 49ers!  My pick: San Francisco 27-21

Well, the Super Bowl matchup is set. And it's deja vu all over again, as Yogi Berra said. It's back to 2008 with the Patriots/Giants! Wowsers. I bet the Pats must be seeing blood after what the G-Men did to them then.

Oh, and while I may not be interested, I am pulling for the G-Men again.

On a more serious note, Joe Paterno, known for being the face of Penn State football for 47 years as its head coach (and who was forced after a TERRIBLE scandal involving one of his right-hand men) died Sunday morning at 85. May he RIP.

I, for one, was quite pissed with how the playoffs went this year.  However, all that matters now is the big game.  To be honest, I'm somewhat ambivalent on the subject...

Reasons why I would like to root for the Patriots:
1) I've liked the Pats since Super Bowl XXX against the Packers.
2) I was cheering for them in SB42; they lost, I got sick... :P
3) I do like the Pats; I've never really liked the Giants, especially after they lost to the Ravens.

Reasons why I would like to root for the Giants:
1) Eli Manning.  Though I'm not a huge fan of him, if he were to win two rings, it would make him look more successful than Peyton, who only deserved 2 of his MVP awards (in my opinion).
2) The Dallas Cowboys.  These two division rivals met in the final game of the entire season, with a Win Or Go Home atmosphere, situated to be 4th with a 9-7 record; not looking good, right?  Well, if the Giants win it all, that would be an extra sting to Tony Bore-mo and the Crap-boys.
3) ...not sure if I can come up with a third one.

I'm a little sad. :(

I was hoping the 49ers would get in. But oh well, The Super Bowl's sure to be a good game nonetheless and i plan on watching it with my stepfather. And I wonder what kind of crazy ideas for commercials they'll come up with this year.

I haven't really given much of a crap for the commercials lately; they've been getting more and more boring to me.  The only thing that I've heard so far is that there's a Go Daddy commercial, which is supposed to be the most risque one that they've ever had.  Didn't the NFL try to censor the Super Bowl as much as possible?  Why allow commercials like that if they're going to condemn Janet Jackson for having Justin Timberlake rip off her chestpiece during HIS song about stripping off the clothes of women?

Indeed and it was quite tense for a while, the sort of thing you'd expect in a Super Bowl game between two power house teams.

So, the WWE was in Portland this Monday, and I really, REALLY wanted to see it... but I couldn't go.

Here's the reason why I wanted to go SSSSSOOOOOOOOOO BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAADDD!!!

as well as

Yeah,... I'm rooting for the Rock.  If Cena wins, the WWE will forever lose a fan.

I definitely think The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) is  cool and I'd love to meet him someday or have him be a character is a piece of writing turned into a movie someday. But I must admit I'm a card carrying DX (Degeneration X) fan. They were wild crazy and out of control and they drove Mr. McMahon crazy with their shinnanigans.  I'll always cherish the memory of i think it was shortly after i turned 30 when they made an absolute fool of Mr. Mcmahon on RAW after he'd banished them from the building where RAW was taking place. I know WWE is keyfabe (Scripted or fake) but still it was so much fun. I guess that's the sadist in me talking. >:D

News items:

On June 8th, history was made. The Mariners used not one, not two, but SIX pitchers to throw a no-hitter! They beat the LA Dodgers 1-0, first no-hitter for the M's since 1993.

The LA Kings have won the Stanley Cup, over the New Jersey Devils 4-2. First cup for them.

On a personal note- I may attend a Seahawks game! But which one? The 9/24 Monday Night tilt over the Packers, or the 10/14 battle of the Patriots? Hmm.....

Let me ask everypony out here: If Portland ever got an NFL team, what would it be called? In 1998, I thought it would be the Pokemon. But then again, it wouldn't fly IRL because of licensing issues. :D

^ On a slightly related topic, I took a Public Speaking class this past quarter.  As part of our exercising, we had to do a quick 1-minute speech on a random topic based off of a pre-submitted list of topics.  I had to once do one on ideas on how to make the NFL more popular while making the speech funny.  One of the ideas I said was to change the names of all of the mascots into various Pokemon; the Packers could become the Pikachus, etc., but I pointed out that since the NFL is anti-Seattle, the Seahawks would be forced to be the Psyducks.  ;D

Chances are that if Portland were to get an NFL team, it would be a team getting relocated.  Teams that I could see being "contenders" for relocating to Portland are: the Rams, the Browns, or the Jaguars.  Assuming that I am right, I would think that the Rams would keep their name, the Browns would probably stay the same...?, and the Jaguars would possibly change.  For the Jags, perhaps keeping the mascot something cat-related...?  The Portland Bobcats?  The Portland Cougars?  The Oregon Pumas?  The Portland Pumas?  The Oregon Bearcats?

IF there were a brand-spanking new team made for Portland, I'd take on the guess that it would be an AFC team.  Why?  Because the AFC West has two Californian teams, and Los Angeles would be more likely to get a new team, which would go to the NFC West, or they would get the Rams, which is already in that division.  Now, I could see one of the driving forces to getting a team in the Beaver State being Nike.  Therefore, I can see them wanting to play with: the Portland Ducks ( ::) ), going with another Disney animal in the Portland Dogs...? ( :-\ ), going with another bird in the Oregon Ospreys ( ;) ), or running (PUN!) with the Greek theme in the Portland Hydras, the Oregon Minotaurs, or (my favorite) the Portland Chthonics.

Swimming really doesn't have as much to talk about as baseball or football.  Personally, I only give a damn about it during the Olympics, and even then, it's not on the top of my priority list of sports to watch.  (They just show it a lot, along with Track & Field).

Well, the 2012 MLB All-Star Game is in the books, the National League will have home-field advantage in this year's World Series- thanks to three SF Giants' big hits in the 8-0 win. Their win streak stands at three now.

NFL Training Camp stars in less than a few weeks now..... who do y'all see taking the Lombardi trophy? My money is on the Ravens, again.

That All-Star game was a joke... did the AL even try to win?

Well, for me, it helps to analyze who I think will win the divisions, first:
NFC: Falcons, Giants, Packers, 49ers + Saints, Cowboys as wild cards
AFC: Texans, Patriots, Ravens, Raiders + Steelers (>:(), Dolphins as wild cards

Hmm... I'm gonna say... I think I'd agree with you on the Ravens, over the Falcons or Packers (kinda hard to say at this point, though)

This is true.  Heck, we could see Super Bowl XLVII come down between the Browns and the Lions!!!  (I won't hold my breath on that one, though...).

Time to update this thing.

As many of you know, as of Monday, July 23rd, 2012, Ichiro Suzuki, our stalwart for the Mariners outfield for 11 years, is no longer with the team. He was traded to the New York Yankess in exchange for two pitching prospects. He had a wonderful style at the plate that earned him a reputation as a hit machine for a decade; and many in the PNW loved his excellence in the outfield, and how Superman-esque he was for those feats. We'll miss ya, Ichiro. It was one hell of a ride.
---
My thoughts: I'll be frank. I kinda knew this day would come, it came as a very small surprise to me, however. I later found out shortly after the trade went down that he approved of it; more power to him, I guess. I really wish it was with some other team. The Dodgers I woulda appoved.

I'm quite pissed that he's now a Yankee.  I would have been fine with any other team.  On the bright side, he has a good chance at winning a World Series ring now.  Unfortunately, I now have a "reason" to root for the Yankees... :P (I was rooting for the Nationals...).

Is anypony watching the Olympics? Post your thoughts. I haven't been able to keep up- so many sports!

Oh, and the one Seahawks game I want to watch in person the most this year? The matchup against the Patriots on 10/14!

Unfortunately, no. My schedule keeps me asleep during much of the day, and when I'm not, like now, it's because I'm running around, like now. I do know that America and China are still pretty close in medal count, and last I heard Japan was 3rd.
