Well, I'd love to see the Lions get their first Super Bowl win.

Yes, I know (1) I'm dreaming, and (2) they won the NFL title a few times back in the stone age. :laughhard

In fact, related to that, I learned this week that Detroit is the ONLY city to win THREE major league championships in the same season (i.e. within 12 months of each other). The Lions, Tigers, and Red Wings all won in 1935.

Boston almost did it this season -- a Bruins win on Wednesday would have added to the Red Sox WS title last fall and the Patriots Super Bowl win in Feb.

ETA: TOTP :mrgreen:

Huuuuuuuge game in the cricket world cup tonight - India v Pakistan.

TV audience 1 billion.

That's a world cup - not the joke of the domestic baseball series the US calls a 'world series'. :).

I just saw a chart that indicates that baseball has never fully recovered from the 1994 strike.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Ser ... on_ratings

30 million people watched the 1995 World Series - the year after the strike. It's never reached that level again. In fact, only three times in the 21st Century has viewership exceeded *20* million -- 2001 (Dbacks vs. Yankees), 2004 (Red Sox vs. Cardinals), and 2016 (Cubs vs. Indians).

well you see aussie... that is a kindness on our part to not embarrass the rest of the world... do you really think there is anyone out there that could compete with us.... if so , then you'd better think again :fyi:

Oh by the way, and speaking of baseball, yesterday Michigan beat Texas Tech in the opening round of the College World Series, 5-3. "Hail to the victors valiant..." and :P to all you Texas folks :twisted:

yeah, i'd say michigan has been probably the biggest surprise of the tournament (at least fsu has their coach's situation going for them) .... loved seeing them knock off top seeded ucla at home....did my heart good :cloud9:

this is exactly why i love watching matches like the us open ... or the british open....or the masters

we're basically down to 3 players goinf into the last 4 holes...2 elite that have been there and one trying to get there...all of which are imploding due to the pressure , then recovering with some remarkable golf shots....

case in point, an elite justin rose with an excellent shot in the middle of the fairway on 13, with the leader trying to get there , gary woodland, in the deep rough with a bad angle to the hole... result, rose didn't get up and down from his bunker shot and shoots a bogie, while woodland hits a miraculous shot from the rough and with 2 putts gets his par ... i think i'm changing my support to the wannabe to get his first major

Watching US men's soccer team against Guyana in the CONCACAF Gold Cup. U.S. player just knocked the ball into the goal with his face. That's gotta hurt. But they'll take it.

Michigan needs one more win to become the first "northern" team to win the CWS since Ohio State in 1966.

At least that's what they said on the radio. But then I looked at the list of winners ... Oregon State isn't "northern"? :scratch: That school is at 44.5 degrees north latitude ... sounds northern to me.
