Steroids in Sports

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
The tragedy involving the deaths of Chris Benoit and his family has been making a lot of news headlines. The 24 hour news services couldn't get enough of it in the days immediately after the murders and the recent findings that Benoit had steroids in his system (among other substances) at the time of his death is sure to push this story further into the living rooms of Ame...
- [b]The greatest name in the history of trading cards is making a comeback after 73 years. Collectors everywhere will applaud the return of the legendary and revered Sportkings brand![/b] [img]http://www.hockeyheadquarters.com/images/hockey-cards/sportkings/return.jpg[/img] The original Sport Kings Gum series was released by the Goudey Gum Company in 1933 and 193...
Much is being made of Nashvilles support levels for the Predators coming from various levels of government. Some might be suggesting that Nashvillians don't truly support their team if they don't want to see tax dollars spent on it. Of course, it should be remembered that CANADIANS didn't want to see their tax dollars going to fund hockey teams either. In this blog I ...

Fan Blog for all sports.

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
This blog's story takes place last night at the Buffalo Bills pre-season game against the Atlanta Falcons. As I arrived at the stadium with my friend Shell, I see a few Vick jerseys walking into the area and I start to think to myself that this can get ugly after people get more beer into them. As we get to our seats, we notice that there are 2 Vick wearing Jersey guys ...

Toronto and Kubina.....

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Whats the issue really. I'm not exactly writing a blog on this one. But I want your thoughts on why Toronto wants to dump this guy so bad. Me personaly cap space, but who knows it could be just because they want more depth upfront. Of course I see no purpose to trading Kubina if all the Leafs plan on doing is signing Tony Salmaleinen. Which personally I'm excited about ...

First Blog - Why Hockey?

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Hey all, thanks for checkin out my first blog. My topic of interest today is "Why Hockey?": What is it about sports that makes people become so passionate. More specifically, what is it about hockey that brings together so many people while uniting around one team, and divides so many others while competing against another? What makes hockey so much different from o...

Of 9/11 and Sports

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Of 9/11 and Sports This day needs no explanation. I was still in middle school with nary a clue what had transpired that beautiful Tuesday morning. Just short of 9 AM, history notes regarding the attack on Pearl Harbor were put on hold as I was forced to turn the page and begin filling my notebook with images of a tragic part of history that was simultaneously being wri...
I, like many, would like to see hockey return to ESPN. It provides the widest exposure of sports programming in the US. With that said, ESPN also provides the widest exposure of what I consider to be the biggest problem with sports programming today: the epidemic of sportscasting "personalities" overshadowing the events they present. The seeds of this issue can be tr...
This will be my 3rd attempt to post this blog???? Maybe I am a complete incompetent boob, but it shouldn't be this hard. Anyway, before everyone gets all hyped up and lights their posse torches, please let me say that I have accepted this fact and am completely at ease about it. In many respects, I am very happy about it. There are a lot of positives to having a limite...

According to Yahoo Sports box scores Steve Downie had an assist on Brieres game winning goal Thursday, I told you the kid is good. Blue Jackets 4 Ducks 0, huh? Flyers vs Oilers tonight, weird how after players are traded they seem to play against each other very quickly it happens all the time,I’m thinking 5-2 Flyers. Marion Jones on roids? Thats a shocker. She ...
Before everyone gets all hyped up and lights their posse torches, please let me say that I have accepted this fact and am completely at ease about it. In many respects, I am very happy about it. There are a lot of positives to having a limited, rabid, knowledgeable, fan base. Less bandwagoneers to fling on/off depending on the team's record. The downside is that we have le...
I went in to last night excited to watch my Habs take on the Leafs and hopefully bring home a victory, which they happily did. As I do not get RDS in my cable package, I hoped and assumed that since this was Habs/Leafs, the game would obviously be aired nationally. Is there really any other game in Canada quite as big as when these two age-old rivals square off? Well, appa...
Let me start out by saying that I'm American. I'm not one of those who acts like every other country is crap and that the American way is the only way. Nonetheless, I am an American and I am proud of it. I have lived in Columbus, Ohio for my entire life. The city is very much a part of me, and I love it dearly (no matter how obsessed it is about Ohio State Football). I wou...

Gosh, it gets tedious to read the hockey reports in the [i]Sporting News[/i]. The title of a current epistle is [i]Ovechkin falling flat in playoff debut.[/i] Are we watching the same games? Are we reading the same stat sheets? Do the Flyers get no credit for executing well? Frankly, this type of reportage is more an indictment of the flawed mentality prevailing in ...
As a hockey fan in America, I sometimes find myself in a situation which I'm sure some of you have faced before as well. When talking sports with someone, you may happen to mention that your favorite sport is hockey, and in response you receive nothing but a blank stare. It's almost as if the other person is silently answering, "No, seriously, what sport?" It is indeed fru...
I know that he's put in his time. 14 years at a paper in Peterborough, 16 years at the hockeynews and now with Rogers Sportsnet's and the fan590 on Hockeycentral, but really, c'mon. The Leafs have played 2 pre-season games. 2. They've been in camp for all of a week. They've barely had a second to take in the city, let alone the media throng that is you and Howard. ...
It is starting to get to be that time of year again. As the leaves start to change colour and fall from the trees some may look at it as autumn, while I on the other hand look at it as the beginning of another hockey season.

It is a question that you face very often. It is often posed to you by a frustrated mother, wife and/or girlfriend, and sometime even by yourself. And while this question is often asked in rhetorical fashion and meant only yo ridicule your obsession, it is valid and must be pondered. The following blog is an investigation of the counter-intuitive relationship between fan a...
I wish I could tell you what a real fan is and what it means to be a fan to your team. I mean, I know what it is like to pull for a team or root for them. But as a fan, you certainly have the right to boo a team. But how far are you aloud to go? I mean, I have seriously heard people insult the player’s intelligence and his upbringing. I am just as bad as the others. I am...
The Toronto Maple Leafs continue on their waddling days of January which has been the teams worst month statistically since the lockout, if the team is to succeed in its quest to make the playoffs again then they need to come to grips with one of the coldest months of the year in Canada. The team is 1-5-0 so far this month and continue to struggle in their penalty kill and...
There is going to be major reshuffling on the back end of the Canucks this year... with a long term deal in place for the Sedins... Kesler... Burrows... Edler... Ballard... and of course Luongo - the time is now for the Nucks to correct the insufficient defensive corps. Picture the players who will remain: Ballard - Edler - Ehrhoff ... of course Bieksa and Salo are gone...
I really think the only thing I can contribute to a blog site such as this is some insight into the world of NHL bettors. Throughout the week, I'll post a quick blog if I see some nice Sportsbook lines or opportunities for a Pro-Line parlay. Please, feel free to leave your picks in the comments section and I'd love to know people's thoughts on the games I've chosen...
Brassards agent rips Arniel for leaving him in the locker room as a healthy scratch again, saying Arniel is making Brassard the scapegoat for the teams wretched start. Well...... Rumors have it columbus is trying to trade Brassard. Two ways to fascilitate this, one, play them and feature their skills to prespective bidders. Two, sit them and hope that absence makes...
I understand the frustration fans are having with the way the season which began with so much promise is starting to get away from them, it begs the question, should the sabres trade Ryan Miller? And if so, to whom and for what? It is a soft goalie market, I dont think you could get close to market value, but what does this Sabres team need to right the ship?
You guys both suck. Fuck you.
It’s almost comical to read the comments that inevitably follow online articles reporting on the NHL Lockout, especially those that are the, “That’s it! I’m done! I’ll never follow the NHL again!” variety. The funny part is when you read another article 3 days later, there’s the same person, with the same comment. And then, a week later, the same comment from...
First time for this, so be gentle A month away from the start of the season and I couldn't be more excited. A full season of games, an outdoor game every other weekend and 3am Olympic Hockey! Only one thing troubles me and it is the same thing every year. Drum roll please.... Extended drum roll.... ESPN's continued neglect of anything Hockey. From 35 second ga...

[b]By Casey Gagnon, Phoenix Sports Hub E-Mail: CaseyPSH at yahoo dot com Twitter: @CaseyPSH PhoenixSportsHub.Blogspot.com[/b] The Phoenix Coyotes needed players to step up Tuesday night in Denver to fill voids in the lineup. Forward Antoine Vermette and goaltender Thomas Greiss received the message loud and clear. Both played as solid a game one could ask for, an...
Secondary scoring has been the staple amid the Flyers recent two game winning streak. That mixed in with two putrid opponents have allowed this lackluster Flyers team to outscore their opposition by the count of 9-2 to start their 4 game homestand. This may be just what the doctor ordered for a team that has had tremendous trouble scoring of late. Outside of Claude Giroux ...
Hope everyone has had a wonderful, safe, and happy holidays. Taking time from unwrapping presents and being bombarded by questions from your relatives to check up on what the Flyers are up to. Heading into the holiday break the Flyers are on the heels of a 3 game winning streak that has seen them beginning to gain some momentum as we come close to the midpoint of the seaso...
Flyers storm into the Music City tonight for an 8pm puck drop after the three day holiday break. This will be the 4th of a season long 8 game road trip in which they started out nicely with a 3 game winning steak. This also marks the first meeting with former bench boss Peter Laviolette since becoming the head coach of the Predators last summer. Lavy's return will remind F...
Another break in the schedule proves to be a costly one for the Flyers when they have gotten on a roll a few times this season. Entering the Christmas break having won three straight and enjoying a 6-1-3 stretch where they gained points in 9 of 10 games all came to a screeching halt in Nashville on Saturday night. Lavy's first game against his former team showed Flyers man...
KIMMOOOOOOO!! Nothing made me more happier on Monday night than watching Kimmo graciously lift the cup over his head in absolute euphoria. The thing he's been working for his entire life which had eluded him up until now is finally his. He can finally call himself a champion. After a wonderful career in which he was a 5 time all-star (probably would have been a 6th if ther...
