  1. How competitive are you when it comes to something you care about? It can be a game that you enjoy playing, trying to be the best in your class, pretty much anything competitive. Hmm I'd say I'm pretty competitive, but I'm not as hardcore about winning as much as some people I know. If I tried my best and put up a good fight but lost in the end, that's not too bad. I mainly hate losing at something when I know I could've won if I hadn't made some stupid mistake. So what about you guys?
  2. I've seen a noted lack of discussions for NASCAR and auto racing fans on here, so i'm starting one up just in time for the Daytona 500 next Sunday. We can talk about NASCAR, bur we can also talk about other forms, like Indy, F1, or any other you'd like to talk about.
  3. Do you play any sports? I do competitive swimming!
  4. I live in Kentucky, so my team has to be the Wildcats! I love watching them and we've been to so many games!
  5. With the Washington Nationals winning their first ever World Series Championship, that means that 24 out of the 30 teams have won at least one World Series title. Meaning that there are only 6 left who have not yet won their first championship. The Seattle Mariners, Milwaukee Brewers, Texas Rangers, San Diego Padres, Tampa Bay Rays, and Colorado Rockies. For the record: The Brewers' only appearance was in 1982. They came close by taking the Cardinals to a 7th game, but lost in the end. The Rockies' only appearance was in 2007, but were swept by the Red Sox. The Padres made 2 appearances, in 1984 and 1998. They lost to the Tigers in 5 in '84, and were swept by the Yankees in '98. The Rays' only appearance was in 2008. They lost to the Phillies in 5. The Rangers made 2 back to back appearances in 2010 and 2011. They lost to the Giants in 5 in '10. but came close in '11 by taking the Cardinals to a 7th game, but lost in the end. The Mariners have never made an appearance in the World Series. But I have this optimism for seeing all the teams win at least one championship some day. Which of these 6 teams do you think will be the next one to end their drought and finally have their first championship?
  6. The championship season kicked off yesterday with its first match and today it is our turn! The summer break has gone so quickly.. Today Brighton face Sheffield Wednesday at home. Very excited to see what we are made of this season! Who does your team have on the first day?
  7. I just got back from the pool. Did 20 laps with a mix of butterfly, breaststroke, backstroke, and freestyle. That's not much and I could only go for 30 minutes but I haven't really been super active in years due to my heart condition. Doc says exercise will strengthen it and so I went back to my favorite sport. Anyone else sharing the love for water? :3 ALSO! I know this is going to sound CRAZY but this anime influenced me back into the sport I really love and encouraged me. XD https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqYdp6rOBaI
  8. Just moments ago a statement was released that Los Angeles Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs has died this afternoon. Skaggs was only 27. Having pitched 96 games with a career record of 28-38 with a 4.41 ERA and 476 career strikeouts. Currently there’s no statement of how it happened, but tonight’s Angels game scheduled against the Texas Rangers has been postponed to tomorrow in his memory. He is survived by his wife Carli. This is a terrible loss for the MLB
  9. Racing is a hugely popular sport all over the world. As a result, there are tons of kinds too! We have GT Racing, V8 supercars, bike racing, Nascar, Indycar, Formula 1, even Go-Kart racing as well as many others. With such a wide variety, it makes me wonder what people tend to prefer, or perhaps certain people love a combination? Let's answer that! What are YOUR favorite types of racing? For me, it has to be GT racing and in second place, V8 Supercars. GT Racing is just soooo technical and I love seeing how the drivers handle the huge variety of courses all over the world. I also prefer GT racing in the Forza Motorsport series.
  10. The Toronto Raptors have won the Eastern Conference Final for the first time in franchise history, and will be taking on the defending champ Golden State Warriors! How do you think the series will play out? Post your prediction in the poll above.
  11. It's that time of year again. The Stanley Cup Finals. This year it's the Boston Bruins against the St. Louis Blues. Will the city of Boston have it's 3rd championship team within a full calendar year? Or will the St. Louis Blues win their first ever Stanley Cup Championship and become the 20th active franchise in the NHL to do so?
  12. Today the Baseball world mourns a terrible loss. Bill Buckner, who was the NL Batting champion in 1980 with the Chicago Cubs has passed away from struggling with Dementia. Buckner played 22 seasons in the big leagues. His best year was undoubtedly 1980 as mentioned earlier. Buckner accumulated 2715 hits, 174 home runs, and 1208 Runs Batted In. Spoilered here is the moment in Buckner’s career that he is most remembered for. A fair warning for Boston Red Sox fans, it may be too painful to watch.
  13. Well, the NRL season of 2019 is almost here. This is a thread to discuss not only the NRL and the 2019 NRL season but anything related to Rugby League. Even if you’re not familiar with it and want to know about it, this is the place for you. Everybody and everypony is welcome. Round 1 will start on the 14th of March with the Melbourne Storm taking on the Brisbane Broncos. https://www.nrl.com/draw/
  14. (I might step on some people with my opinion. But i don't write this to hurt anybody. In the end, it's just my opinion.) There have been a number of many people, who demonized the Rio olympics for being held in a country with corruption, a poor society and the infamous zika virus, to the point that they simply don't want to watch these olympics. First of all, i want to make clear, that this is not what i am here to talk about. I always tried to not bring in politics into international sports events, because in my opinion they shouldn't belong in there. The Olympics for me, is more then just a mere sports event. It is THE Sports Event. Athletes from all around the World, come to one place, to compete in a friendly competition. It dosen't matter where they come from. It dosen't matter what religion they are part of and it dosen't matter what political believes they have. All they care about is the sport and to give their best. I think especially in times like these, where everybody is paranoid about death and terrorism being behind every corner, it is a great sign of peace and trust, for these athletes from all different cultures, to be all living in one place for almost 3 weeks. Be it Americans and Russians, South Koreans and North Koreans, or even Israelis and Palestinians. Some might call it cheesy, but i am a firm believer in the olympic spirit. Olympians don't get alot of money for competing, compared to Football/Soccer, Tennis, or Golf Tournaments, which puts the focus on the sport and the glory even more and i think this is a good sign. As i am writing this, i am watching synchronized diving and i am amazed by these great athletes. And i continue to have lots of fun.
  15. A rather shocking turn of events as New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has decided to retire from the National Football League. He has been battling a lot of injuries in his career, earning three Super Bowl rings, ending his nine year career having played 115 games, gone for 7861 Yards, and scored 79 touchdowns. Gronkowski is only about 29. I understand injuries, but it's not like he had to do this. Obviously fans in Boston aren't gonna like the Patriots very much without him, and he has been in commercials such as the trailer for Mobile Strike. Having a career cut short by injuries doesn't sound fun at all.
  16. The results are in for the newest members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. There are four today. Firstly, five time World Series champion and all time leader in saves Mariano Rivera. By far one of the best closers of all time. Rivera became the first player to ever make it in with a unanimous "yes" vote. This was Rivera's first year on the ballot. Secondly, the late Roy Halladay, a pitching legend with two Cy Young awards and a perfect game who was tragically killed in a plane accident in late 2017, was voted in. This was his first year of eligibility. Thirdly, Pitcher Mike Mussina who played for the Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees and won seven Gold Gloves made the cut. Mussina had been on the ballot since 2014. Lastly, Mariners fans can finally take a breath. Edgar Martinez is finally in. The 5 time Silver Slugger was on his final year of eligibility. That's about it! Larry Walker is still alive, and will participate in his tenth and final year of eligibility, so hopefully he gets into the hall in 2020. Todd Helton could have received a hell of a lot more votes than he actually did, I'm disappointed. Andy Pettitte did not even get ten percent of the votes, which is fine. And as usual, Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens are not in, which is a good thing. Fred McGriff was also on the ballot for his last year of eligibility, but did not get in. Anypony have thoughts on today's election?
  17. Hello Everypony! This past weekend was pretty eventful for football fans. We saw some good plays, but we are down to eight teams left, and the four teams that clinched the first round byes now have their opponents confirmed. After an emotional Saturday Afternoon for the Houston Texans, Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts have advanced. They will be traveling to take on Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday January 12th at Arrowhead Stadium. Next up for fans in Dallas, the wait for Dak Prescott's first career playoff win is over. Having taken out the Seattle Seakawks, the Cowboys will take on Jared Goff and the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday January 12th at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Then of course, we have the Los Angeles Chargers, led by veteran Phillip Rivers, advancing with the win against the Baltimore Ravens. They will take on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium on Sunday January 13th. And finally, following a rather painful-to-watch missed field goal by Cody Parkey of the Chicago Bears, they could not make the comeback against Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles, who move on to face Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints at the Superdome on Sunday January 13th. Who do you think will win these match-ups?
  18. Hello everypony! Seems as if the regular season in the National Football League has come to a close. We are down to twelve teams who all want to be this years Super Bowl Winner, but there can only be one. The Los Angeles Rams, New Orleans Saints, Kansas City Chiefs, and New England Patriots, all have the first round bye. Here's the current situation in the AFC. This Saturday, the AFC South champion Houston Texans (3rd Seed) will host the Indianapolis Colts (6th Seed) at Reliant Stadium in Houston at 4:35 PM Eastern Time. On Sunday, the AFC North champion Baltimore Ravens (4th Seed) will host the Los Angeles Chargers (5th Seed) at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore at 1:05 PM Eastern Time. The Chiefs will host the lowest winning seed on January 12th at Arrowhead Stadium, while the Patriots will host the highest winning seed on January 13th at Gillette Stadium. Now the NFC This Saturday, the NFC East Champion Dallas Cowboys (4th Seed) will host the Seattle Seahawks (5th Seed) at AT&T Stadium in Arlington at 8:15 PM Eastern Time. On Sunday the NFC North Champion Chicago Bears (3rd Seed) will host the Philadelphia Eagles (6th Seed) at Soldier Field in Chicago at 4:40 PM Eastern Time. The Saints will host the lowest winning seed on January 13th at the Superdome, while the Rams will host the highest winning seed on January 12th at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Who do you think will still be on their feet at the end of this round?
  19. Which two teams do you think will play in the 2019 Super Bowl?
  20. Inspired to make this thread from @Baby Dashie's here. Every offseason, the Baseball Writers' Association of America (BBWAA) votes for former players into the Hall of Fame. Starting in mid-November, the writers fill out a ballot presented to them by the Hall and can fill up to ten. Anyone who doesn't eclipse the 5% threshold falls off, but anyone who crosses 75% will get The Call and be elected into Cooperstown, where the celebration occurs every July. The writers have until December 31 to submit, and the announcement of inductees will be on January 22. Earlier this month, the Veterans Committee elected two former players: Harold Baines and Lee Smith. Now out of a possible 35 players on this year's ballot, only a select few will be elected. Here's the sample blank ballot, from this link: To make the ballot, the player must play at least ten seasons, not play five consecutive seasons following their last game, and be chosen by a committee to be approved. Like in Baby Dashie's thread, who do you think will make it? Also, if you had a ballot, who would you select (remember, only up to ten)? Two first-ballot shoo-ins: Halladay and Rivera. The former for being a major workhorse for about a decade (the last to pitch 260 regular-season innings) and one of th best pitchers in the game at the time. The ladder for being the all-time best reliever, period. At 70.4%, Edgar Martinez missed it by 20 votes, but with this being his tenth and final year on the ballot, he has an outside shot. Mussina was second-closest at 49. Follow Ryan Thibodaux's HoF Tracker for up-to-date public ballots. My hypothetical ballot ain't complete yet, but if I had one, it'd be as follows: Barry Bonds Roger Clemens Roy Halladay Andruw Jones (+1) Edgar Martinez Mike Mussina Mariano Rivera Scott Rolen Billy Wagner The tenth spot will be either Walker or McGriff, but because this year's McGriff's last, I'll likely pick him. Walker has one more year after this.
  21. Hello everypony. So seven months ago, the Philadelphia Eagles overcame the New England Patriots for their first Super Bowl title ever. On this coming Thursday, the National Football League returns as the defending champions kick off the season against the Atlanta Falcons. And this year, many teams who have yet to acquire their first championship, the Minnesota Vikings, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Carolina Panthers seem to be heading into the right direction. If you follow the NFL, which team is your favorite? Do you think your team has a shot at the Super Bowl in Atlanta this season?
  22. It can be from ANY type of motorsport. My faves would have to the Ford FGX Falcon V8 Supercar, the modern Ford GT that races at Le Mans and the Bentley Continental GT3
  23. Before I start I want it to be known that while there were a few others threads like this one, I decided to make a new as those were quite old and lacked the "why" factor that I am gunning for here. To start I never really considered myself a hardcore sports fan, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy some sports AND that I had some teams that I followed. Over the years I mainly considered myself a racing fan, but grew to like the more traditional team and individual sports out there. That said, what I want to know is this: Over the entire spectrum of sports from team sports like football, individual sports like archery, and even teams from various auto-racing series; which teams do you consider your favorite, and WHY do you consider them your favorite? Are they your hometown team? If not was there something that attracted them to you like a specific performance, a specific athlete, or something deeper? To start off I'll give my main favorite teams, as well as a few runner-ups. Pittsburgh Penguins (NHL) - The funny thing here is that the Penguins were not the first team that I followed in the NHL. When I decided to look into the sport it was the Montreal Canadiens that got me in, and the Anaheim Ducks that allowed me to experience what it was like for a team to win the Stanley Cup. However, being in the eastern US is was difficult to attempt to follow the Ducks' regular season so I was beginning to tune out. However, due to the region I live in I was able to catch a few Pittsburgh Penguins games, and they eventually caught my heart. I followed them to the Stanley Cup finals; which they lost to the Detroit Red Wings. However the team won me over enough that I followed their regular season and celebrated when they exacted revenge on the Red Wings to win the Cup. As such, you could say it was a dash of geography and genuine love for a team that I watched fall into despair, only to climb the mountain and reach the proverbial peak. Amazing stuff. Baltimore Orioles (MLB) - This one is a tad tricky to explain. It hasn't even been a year ago that I followed baseball, and even though logic told me to follow the Pirates due to my love for the Penguins, I was actually more interested in following another team, and it was that team that taught me to appreciate and enjoy the game of baseball. While the Orioles aren't the most successful of teams, nor the most popular, they have a lot of heart to them, and when it comes to cities, Baltimore is one that I can say my heart resides in. It was the very first BIG city I ever set foot in back in 1997, it hosted my favorite sport of IndyCar (and American Le Mans) on the streets of the Inner Harbor, and, of course, the first ever convention I ever attended was there last year. As such I have a certain connection to that city and as much as I enjoy the Ravens, it was the Orioles that really won me over, and I just want to support them as much as possible. McLaren Honda (Formula 1) - This one was a little tricky for a few reasons; amongst them being a lack of interest in F1 until mid-last year, Mclaren's ongoing struggles since 2014, and the fact that the American Haas F1 competes with some limited success. That said McLaren was a team I started paying serious attention to as a favorite team back when the driver lineup consisted of Juan Pablo Montoya and Kimi Raikkonen; of which the former was my favorite driver at the time. They were fun to follow, though they were inconsistent due to either crashes or mechanical failures. In the end my interest in F1 faded, but returned last year. I still looked for a team and while McLaren was still my de-facto fav, it wasn't until the VERY recent announcement of Fernando Alonso attempting this year's Indy 500 with McLaren backing, as well as rumors of McLaren's possible participation in IndyCar full time in the future. Just the sheer thought of McLaren in both F1 and IndyCar has me giddy, and brings a new found respect and passion for them, and I hope they overcome their current troubles to climb the top of the podium once again. Oh yeah; they also have a basketball team. x3 FC Bayern Munich (Bundesliga, UEFA) - Just because I cheer for the most successful team in German football makes me a glory-hunter; eh? Well, no, that's not why I chose this team over all others; including any from the English league, as well as the Spanish giants in Madrid and Barcelona. No; Bayern attracted for a few reason. For starters, I caught the 2010 UEFA Champions League between Inter Milan and Bayern on broadcast TV, and even though Bayern lost, their style of play caught me, and I wanted to see more of them. While my access to German football is a tad lacking, I followed the best I could and found a team that not only had success, they also had a smart business sense. Whereas many other European teams spent themselves into debt, I appreciated Bayern's attempts to stay strong financially as such. Yeah, it's a silly reason, but it's an approach I appreciate. That said, I would be lying if I didn't enjoy that success; the highest of which came in 2013 at the UEFA Champion's League final against Dortmund in Wembley, and BOY was it a dramatic game, and one that I will NEVER forget. Like with the Penguins, Bayern's ability to come back from a stinging Finals loss against Chelsea the previous year to ascend new heights was amazing. Of course they have struggled in Europe recently, but I still love to follow them. Andretti Autosport (IndyCar, GRC, Formula E) - This one will be the most difficult to explain as I can't really pin down any one reason why I follow them with passion. They are owned and ran by IndyCar legend Michael Andretti, have some great drivers like Hunter-Reay in their stable, and have expanded to Global Rallycross and Formula E in recent years, but it's hard for me to really say what attracted me to them. However, that said, even if I can't explain it I can still say they have been a fun team to follow. They won the Indianapolis 500 last year, and will have Alonso in one of their cars this year with McLaren, so that is a plus. In the end maybe it's a combination of all of these factors. Whatever the case I can say that out of all IndyCar teams, this is only one that holds my heart to this day. Honorable Mentions: Baltimore Ravens, New York City FC, Flying Lizard Motorsports, Corvette Racing Favorite Sports with no favorite team: MotoGP, World Rally, Cricket So; anyone else?
  24. It's that time again. The Fall Classic. Who are you going for?
