Things I Was Thinking About While Waiting for the Hurricanes to Score a Goal…

Which they did and tied the game with three minutes to go in the third period before losing in overtime 2-1 on a power play goal by Buffalo. Now I have enjoyed watching the Hurricanes play but I still think hockey is more chaos and freaky ricochets of the puck. The most impressive part of [...]

Ignorance in Buffalo

The NHL Eastern Conference Finals have produced a fairly high level of animosity between Carolina Hurricanes fans and loyal followers of the Buffalo Sabres. The 850/620 Blog has hosted some heated discussions and the News and Observer’s Ned Barnett jumped into the fray when he received responses from Buffalo fans who say his columns re-printed [...]

The NBA Draft Lottery

So the NBA had their dog and pony show known as the Draft Lottery last night and the Toronto Raptors received the #1 pick. The worst team in the league, Portland, fell all the way to fourth. The Charlotte Bobcats, who have my allegiance because they are in NC and they also have two UNC [...]

Game. Set. Reasonable Doubt

The defense lawyers for the accused Duke lacrosse players filed motions to have the Durham DA Mike Nifong release all of the evidence he had to them in a discovery motion. Nifong turned over 1300 pages of evidence which the defense promptly leaked to the media. According to Fox News the evidence basically shreds any [...]

NCAA Tournament Bids

It’s May and the NCAA Tournament is still alive and well.

-Mike DeCourcy wrote an article coiniciding the ACC spring meetings in Florida. ACC officials are complaining loudly about the paltry four bids they got in the NCAA Tournament this year. DeCourcy basically argues they are wrong to complain and they got exactly what their [...]

Durham DA Spins Wheel, Indicts Third Player

At least that is the way it seems. The Durham County DA Mike Nifong got his third indictment in the Duke lacrosse rape case. The grand jury, who mind you, only hears evidence from the DA, indicted Duke senior co-captain David Evans on charges of rape, sexual assault, and kidnapping. Now based on what has [...]

Canes Win Series Despite Storms of Apocalyptic Proportions

I have been accused by certain members of my family of being a traitor for support the Carolina Hurricanes. My late father detested the Canes and their last Stanley Cup run in 2002 on the premise that hockey was a Yankee sport and had no business in the South. There is probably an argument to [...]

Ignoring the Facts

I honestly wonder how some people get thrust into certain positions where they are able to write missives read by the masses and are lauded as being a quality journalist. I get this feeling about once a week concerning CBS Sportsline’s Gregg Doyel but I also realize Doyel is a troll and rabble rouser of [...]

Duke Lacrosse Case: Witness Intimidation

I am not sure what kind of game the Durham DA Mike Nifong is playing but it is most certainly a dirty one. According to the News and Observer, the alibi witness for one of the players, a taxi driver has been arrested and charged with shoplifting in connection with the theft of five purses [...]

Random Thoughts

Barry Bonds agent has indicated the embattled slugger might be interested in returning for the 2007 season. Over at ESPN several executives needed to be treated for excessive excitment over the possibilities of another full season of breaking news stories, scandal exposes, nightly highlights of his accomplishments, and plenty of “Chasing Hank Aaron” updates throughout [...]

Carolina Hurricanes

OK, I will be honest. I really do not like hockey and I do not mean in some kind of blind and stupid dislike. I simply do not care for it. Hockey is not my cup of tea. I find watching a game tedious, the actions seems largely disorganized, and I do not undestand the [...]
