MacMac has gone Cup crazy!  Time to take a break from draft fever and give you my Stanley Cup First Round predictions.

West

1. Anaheim vs. 4. Dallas

I like the explosiveness of the stars, but they don’t have anywhere near the depth to play with the Ducks.

Ducks in 5

Busted! I got your attention didn’t I?  What’s this DEE Bracketology? Well in simple terms it is a debriefing type article discussing the tournament (yes I did the DEE on purpose, for those grammar fanatics waiting to comment). I just wanted to do a simple approach to this fun phenomenon. I understand that people get burned out with all the analysis. Discussions after the tournament are done, heavily favored, on the final outcome of the tournament. I want to look at few things that happened during and spark a little more debate ;) Here are list of topics in a sort of award/list format. Open curtain…>

WhirlyHip Hip ooraaaa, I haven’t done one of these for a while. I like to look at various things in the soccer world. I go over hot topics, games, and anything soccer.

Colorado Rapids vs. Kansas City

Yes, I left the Sporting out of the name above because I’m a little bitter about the loss (3-2). I’m glad that MLS is back in action. Well this was a fun game to watch if you’re not a fan of either of the two teams. This was a bit nerve racking due to the fact that Kansas showed the Rapids players that playing to the final whistle gets results. The biggest take away from this game is that the Rapids are playing to be around at the end the game. After Wynn received a red card in the waning minutes of the game, the Rapids went “all right we’ll play for the tie.”

BelchSo NFL free agency is in full swing and now the wait for the draft. Players move and new excitement paves way for broken hearts and feel-good stories (particularly if you are a Broncos or Patriots fan). Oh, how America’s pastime has surely captured the masses. Hold on I’m getting this word from our producers… what’s that? Football isn’t America’s pastime? Then what…? Oh my goodness I almost forgot about baseball. Here we are weeks from OTA’s and I’ve forgotten all about baseball.

BelchIf you were a Tampa Bay Buccaneer’s fan in 2012, you probably had a hard time watching a home game, or six. Tampa’s low fan appearance rates forced an FCC rule into action that pushed the game out of television coverage. The FCC rule, implemented in 1975, stated that if a home game didn’t sell a certain percentage of tickets before the game then that game couldn’t be shown to local stations. The rule was brought into effect originally to increase profit at sport stadiums, but as a number of factors affect profits and the ability to view games, questioning the rule seems to be becoming more popular.

Are the Shockers for real? Wichita State can make a good run in the tournament but are they worthy of a number 1 seed? The key word is worthy. For weeks, the Shockers did their part in winning games but had to watch closely to other teams stumbling. Now that Wichita State is the last one standing at 31-0. Now comes the moment of truth, how will the committee members look at there body of work.

BelchThere is an underlying problem in youth sports; that the fast-paced, sometimes ferocious games played may result in brain injury. The prevention of brain injuries becomes a major issue in the face of behavior problems or cognitive issues later in life. Many believe that with a few more safety precautions and simple rule changes, the sports that children play could be a much safer environment. The textbook covers an area discussing the possibility of brain injuries affecting behavioral traits, and the team of researchers involved in this study was trying to find a way to prevent that from happening to youths.

DocAhhhh hear it is another golf season…..well actually the PGA season started like 1 month ago, but I live here in Colorado and technically we do not start our golf season until like March since we don’t get to play those fancy tropical courses that they do. I don’t sound bitter at all do I???

BelchA young man leaves Dodger Stadium and makes his way to a local bar after a baseball game between his team (the Dodgers) and a rival team (the Giants). When he gets close to the bar, the young man, Jonathan Denver, sees a group of rival fans across the street and a shouting match begins. “Let’s go Dodgers!” The chants come flying out from Jonathan and his friends. “Let’s go Giants!” The rival group of fans starts to chant back, escalating to a new level. As the levels of aggression increase to an intense level, the groups become close enough for a physical altercation, and the unspeakable happens. Denver is stabbed and is rushed to a hospital, where he later dies from his wounds. The behavior of those rival fans illustrates a behavior that is becoming more common, and I believe one of the reasons we see this extreme increase is the role models that sports has produced.
