My first ever NBA game was unforgettable — not only because the home team Los Angeles Clippers won in dramatic fashion (120-116 in OT), but it was an experience I shared with my Dad, a man who has taken me to more Buffalo Bills/Sabres/etc. games than I can count (when I lived back east, he used to have season tickets). Add to it the fact that he attended Buffalo Braves games in the ’70s (who eventually moved to San Diego and became the Clippers, later relocating to LA) and hasn’t attended an NBA game since, I could not think of a better way to commence this Holiday break!

GO CLIPPERS!! (I now own a hat)

Thank you hockey gods for putting to sleep the goal-review guys in Toronto! They clearly missed this San Jose Sharks OT goal tonight, allowing the Buffalo Sabres to win their 3rd game of the season in a shootout, 5-4.

However — THIS DOES NOT MAKE US EVEN!

So a whole lot of this is going down right now:

NOPE

These are the rankings in the CFFL, my fantasy football pay league — my team is Nope. I definitely wasn’t expecting this kind of start. We’ll see how long it lasts, but I’m of the philosophy to live in the now — and right now my team is fuckin’ awesome!

Here are my team’s stats through the first two weeks in the CFFL:

team2

team1

Oh, and I have Michael Turner on my bench because I strongly believe by week 6 he’ll be starting for someone. Depending on how Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling work out, it may even be my Atlanta Falcons.

I also play in two other leagues, but I’m 0-2 and 1-1. If I win in both this week, you may read about it here.

Wrote a fun piece on DC Comics’ New 52 “Red Hood and the Outlaws” character, Roy Harper being a Los Angeles Kings fan based on his hat’s logo. Kenneth Rocafort, the artist who designed the logo, even weighed in with his thoughts!

“DC’s Roy Harper: Los Angeles Kings Fan?” — Click to read full article

“DC Comics’ Roy Harper confronted his past and old mentor Green Arrow in ‘Red Hood and the Outlaws Annual’ #1, and this Saturday, Darryl Sutter, the head coach of the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings is facing something out of his own history as well — his former team the Chicago Blackhawks, who the Kings face in the Western Conference Finals of the Stanley Cup playoffs, a club he played left wing for from 1979-1987, then later commenced his coaching career with from 1992-1995.

On the surface, Roy Harper and the Los Angeles Kings don’t have any direct correlation, but upon closer examination something becomes obvious — the arrow slinging outlaw of the DC Universe is an LA Kings fan.

Since DC launched its New 52 continuity, Harper is often seen wearing a baseball cap with an ambiguous logo, but in certain images it strongly resembles a LA Kings logo, granted one that has been retired towards the end of this post-lockout NHL season. Check the evidence provided below!”
