Twins notes: A safety bet and a long shot

Baseball has returned to us after its long slumber, and like most of you, I’ve spent the last six months doing the 21st century equivalent of “staring out the window and waiting for spring,” namely, refreshing baseball news sites all winter long until the paint started to wear off the F5 key on my keyboard. I’ve meditated over 40-man roster moves and lost sleep...

Opening Day link dump

Welcome back to baseball, everyone. It’s been a long winter. Real life issues have necessitated my absence from this space for a while, but I’m looking forward to getting back to regularly scheduled programming now that the season’s begun to get underway. But first, here’s a short and kind of random list of items from the offseason that I would have written about had...

FCSS: Formula for Success in March/April Madness

It is finally time for the Final Four. Today is the day. What happened to all of the upsets? All of the madness? What happened to the days of #1 seeds getting knocked off before the Final Four? Only 3 other times has three #1 seeds made the Final Four (1993, 1997, and 1999). It hasn’t happened in 16 years. 2008 was the only...

FCSS: Sweet Sixteen Roundup

 It has been a crazy couple of weeks in sports.  From the Cowboys signing Greg Hardy, to Stephen Gerrard making a 45 second appearance before getting a Red Card against Man U, to all of March Madness, to Kevin Durant being sidelined for the rest of the season. The NBA season is coming to a close, and Charlotte (my local team) is only 1.5...

FCSS: Prelude to March Madness

Basketball season regular season ends on Sunday.  What has surprised you about the season? Dad:  Small things like UK going undefeated all 30 games so far. Some teams not doing as well as predicted. Kentucky – undefeated. Have you seen either Virginia, Duke, or Wisconsin play? Those seem to be the favorites to have a chance to beat Kentucky. Dad:  Virigina would give Kentucky...

I’m currently in division 3 of against the computer and division 9 against humans. I held in division 3 my first go. I think I...

February 2015 Malmö FF Additions and Subtractions

“Tobias Sana 2012-10-10“. Licensed under CC BY 2.0. The Swedish transfer window doesn’t close until March 31, so there could still be tons of changes. In fact, I’m so unimpressed with the additions so far that I’m not doing predictions. Despite my apathetic mood toward the additions, the reality is that the transfer dealings are not that different than the last couple of years....
