I just don’t get the NBA’s in-season tournament. πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ

    Since our radio station is an affiliate of the Texas Rangers is I get game highlights from the radio sent to my email every day. This includes the World Series. Normally I use a sound byte or two on my sports and then delete the email. This time, I downloaded every piece of audio and saved it.

    The Stanley Cup is the best trophy in sports! It’s not even debatable.

    Conference Finals in the NHL and NBA and we’ve got “sweep watch” going on in all four series. Both NBA series are 3-0 and the NHL are both 2-0.

    I’m hoping the Stars can carry their momentum from Thursday night into tonight’s game and win this series in six. Have to be prepared for everything Seattle will throw how them tonight, though.

    My Weekend Sports Observations for Oct. 19, 2021

    It’s been a while since I’ve done this, but here we are again. It’s time for my sports observations from this weekend: 1) I guess we should start calling Boston “Grand Slam City”. Holy cow. Three in two games against the Houston Astros in the ALCS. It’s already a record for the most hit in a playoff series. Am I being too greedy if I hope for more? 2) If we’re going to call Boston that, then what do we call Atlanta?

    Connor McGregor’s First Pitch last night at Wrigley Field has to be the worst first pitch ever thrown.

    If you build it, they will come!

    Growing up I loved the movie Field of Dreams. It remains one of my favorite sports movies. Well, this weekend in Dyersville, Iowa is going to be a real life Field of Dreams between the New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox. I cannot wait for this to happen. It was supposed to be played in 2020 but was pushed back due to the pandemic. Game 1 will be on Thursday night at 7pm est and can be seen on Fox.

    Weekend Sports Observations for Tuesday, January 12th

    Ok, it’s that time again. I waited until Tuesday this week because we had a National Championship game on Monday night (in case you were unaware). So here we go: More Nickelodean please! From my Twitter timeline on Sunday afternoon I’m pretty sure everyone on the planet watched the Nickelodean broadcast of the Saints/Bears game. The premise was great. The execution was phenomenal. I surely hope this is something the NFL continues in the future.

    Is This the Best You Can do ESPN?

    I cover sports and I am a huge sports fan. That being said, I am not a fan of ESPN. I don’t like what they’ve become. I don’t watch that channel unless there is a game on I want to see. I can’t tell you the last time I’ve watched Sportcenter. I did like some of their radio programs, though. I usually listen to The Ticket when I can pick it up, but occasionally I like listening to ESPN radio.

    My Weekend Sports Observations for Nov. 9, 2020

    We are past the halfway point of the NFL season. We have a new start date for the NBA and another legend gone. Here’s my sports observations for the weekend. In my heart of hearts, I know that I could never succeed on Jeopardy. However, when they decided to put a sports category up there, I was suckered into believing I could win it all. One of my favorite things about that show was the host, Alex Trebek.

    My Weekend Sports Observations for Oct. 26, 2020

    Hard to believe we are already at Monday. But, nonetheless, here we are. Monday again. And that can only mean one thing: it’s time to reflect on the sports weekend that was. How bad are the Cowboys? 25-3 to a football team with no name? What is that? People will try to blame the Dak Prescott injury but let’s be honest. This team was bad with Prescott in there. I saw this on twitter last night: In the last 20 games, the New York Jets and the Dallas Cowboys both have 7-13 records.

    My Weekend Sports Observations for Oct 12, 2020

    Sports. Oh how I love thee. Let me count the ways!! The SEC officials are terrible. I saw at least two calls that were completely blown calls. One of which, cost Arkansas the win over Auburn. That should not happen. Both defenses were terrible, but the shootout between Texas and Oklahoma was “must-see-TV.” Friday night lights is still special even in a pandemic. Who didn’t shed a sports tear when you saw Dak Prescott being carted off the field with tears in his eyes.

    Interesting Thoughts on the NFL and COVID-19

    This article in The Buffalo News is a great read regardless if you’re a Bills fan or not. Obviously, it is slanted from a Buffalo Bills perspective (since they are in Buffalo). However, their are some valid points being made in the article. Like this one: “According to NFL chief medical officer Dr. Allen Sills, in the nine weeks since the start of training camps, there have been a number of β€œisolated, new positive cases of Covid among players and other personnel across nearly two-thirds of NFL clubs and one outbreak among the Tennessee Titans.

    My Weekend Sports Observations for Oct 5, 2020

    Sports is a funny thing. It brings people together. It divides families. It causes much joy and sadness. With that being said, here are my sports observations from the weekend: Jimmy Butler is showing the world how talented he is. Makes you wonder why he’s played on so many different teams. I need a Football is for Dummies book to help me understand college football this year. How does Oklahoma lose to Kansas State and Iowa State on back-to-back weeks?

    Am I OK?

    I’ve had several people ask me if I’m ok this morning. This might seem like a normal question for most days. People seem to ask, “how are you?” quite a bit. This time, though, it was a little different. Football is my first love and probably always will be. Running a close second, though, is hockey. In particular the Dallas Stars. Ever since Dallas got a team in the early 90’s, I’ve been hooked.

    My Weekend Sports Observations for Sept 28, 2020

    It’s crazy how hockey is a game of inches. In double overtime, Anton Khudobin sticks out his pad and just barely touches the puck with the toe of his skate. This preserved the tie for the moment for the Dallas Stars. Corey Perry and Joe Pavelski were brought to the Stars for Saturday night. They have scored big playoff goals their whole career. Saturday night, they did it again as they scored all three goals for Dallas.

    Opening Night in the NFL and I'm Going to be Busy

    Normally, opening night in the NFL is like a holiday to me. I order pizza and wings. I lock myself in the other room and enjoy the game. I’ve been doing this for as long as they’ve had opening night on Thursday. That’s normal. We all know 2020 is anything but normal. As is the case for tonight. Instead of watching football I will be locked on to the Western Conference Finals of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

    A New Project

    I’ve been thinking about and planning a new project. I can’t get into much detail at the moment but I can say a little bit. I’ve always liked podcasting. I’ve tried several myself that didn’t really take off. I have theories on why that is but I’ll save them. I started microcasting earlier this year because I wanted to talk. Its been fun but I haven’t found the right groove yet.

    View from the broadcast booth tonight!

    Broadcasting outside tonight because they didn’t have room in the press box. Currently 104 degrees outside.

    Normally I’m trying to juggle the Stanley Cup Playoffs with high school softball and baseball playoffs. It’s throwing me off, now, that I’m juggling the playoffs with high school football and volleyball. Weird times I tell you.

    High School Sports in 2020

    (Photo by Bill Higgins) This past week High School volleyball started its season here in Texas. While players, coaches, parents and sports journalists (like myself) are excited to be back at the stadium, its important to know something. Sports in 2020 is going to look a lot different than it did in the past. We all should know this already. Our lives have been drastically changed to due the virus that shall not-be-named.

    All That Money

    So Patrick Mahomes hit the jackpot this week and all I could think about was how stupid Jerry Jones looks now. My podcast partner, Steven Johnston, has been saying for week that Jerry needed sign Dak Prescott before Mahomes signed a new deal. See, the problem isn’t whether or not you think Dak is as good as Mahomes. He’s not. There’s no arguement there. However, you don’t pay a quarterback what he’s worth usually.

    The World We Live In

    Yesterday I was talking to a sports fan. When I say a sports fan, this person has season tickets to Texas Longhorns football and lives 20 minutes from Oklahoma. He drives down there with his family every weekend to watch the games. This is someone who attends other, various games with his family throughout the year. He stopped me to ask me if we’re going to have sports this fall. Mainly he asked about the NFL.
