TweetLooking at the irrationality will screw up the hockey season - because actors - each seemingly acting in self interest, are actually acting irrationale to assure some sort of suboptimal outcome and everyone ends up worse off. And, of course, we are the ones who get hurt the worst for the third time in something […]

Rapid Reaction, the playoffs, and…. http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/16/rapid-reaction-the-playoffs-and/ Mon, 16 Apr 2012 14:44:02 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/16/rapid-reaction-the-playoffs-and/

TweetHere's my rapid (well, rapid is perhaps questionable) reaction to the first couple of Blackhawks/Coyotes games. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Can we please not leaving the tying goal to under 20 seconds left in the game? I mean I am all for drama - but I seriously cannot handle much more of this. Holy shit I'm still stressed […]

Tweet At some point this weekend 80,000 Scousers , dressed in blue or red will sing that on the hallowed terraces of Wembley Stadium and for about 2 minutes the city of Liverpool will be united in celebration of being better than Manchester, for this weekend at least. Then for the remaining 90 minutes or […]

What hockey can teach soccer http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/08/what-hockey-can-teach-soccer/ Mon, 09 Apr 2012 01:57:35 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/08/what-hockey-can-teach-soccer/

Tweet Anyway, that's not even my point this evening. As I was at the Blackhawks game this week, I was thinking about some ways we might be able to improve it. I mean it's awesome, I get that, but there's always room from improvement (except yours truly, I've pretty much peaked it terms of my […]

Tourney Time – Rambler Style http://ballhyped.com/2012/03/12/tourney-time-rambler-style/ Tue, 13 Mar 2012 04:56:47 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/03/12/tourney-time-rambler-style/

TweetI have a well known position that I think the first weekend of March Madness should be a National holiday. There is very little in sports that is as exciting as that first weekend of the NCAA tournament, watching all those kids and just hoping for that one upset, that one magical run that goes […]

TweetSo my brother and I were talking about all the of the players the Blackhawks had let go over the years. It was just shitty ownership. So bad. Bad enough that by ESPN a couple of years ago Wirtz (the father) was voted the second worst owner is all of sports. Hell, he couldn't even […]

Do City need Tevez? http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/28/do-city-need-tevez/ Wed, 29 Feb 2012 04:10:29 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/28/do-city-need-tevez/

Tweet So Tevez is back training with City this week after finally having apologized for his behavior over the last four months following the refusal to come on against Bayern. He was sorry that he was treated like a dog. He won't let that happen again. But the fact remains that he scored 20 goals […]

TweetAfter a brutal two week stretch, the Hawks have finally started winning again. Huge game tonight against the hated Red Wings. Time to settle down with some beer, flip the game on, and start a minute by minute (with repeated and extended interruptions). It was a good win, just the kind we need to start […]

TweetHaving been a fan of the premier league for a couple of years, I've started to learn the personalities of the teams (not the fans, mind you, but rather how the team plays or the personality of the manager. As I was watching a very dull City v. Villa game this weekend it got me […]

Tweet There has to be some rules or guidelines when it comes to switching favorite teams. I mean you can't just go front running and like every team that's in the Super Bowl or something (unless you're 7, and let me tell you even that pisses me off a little bit), but are there situations […]

You’ll Never Walk Alone http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/07/youll-never-walk-alone/ Tue, 07 Feb 2012 12:37:24 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/07/youll-never-walk-alone/

TweetSo I don't have any personal tie to Liverpool, but reading over its history, its like the team is almost bipolar or something with insane highs and success (that'd probably be the mania part): 2005 Champions League final, all the first division titles in the 80s to Heysel, Hillsborough, and Hicks/Gillett (I mean I can't […]
