I actually enjoy going to Red Bull stadium. Haven't been there this season.

8th place out of 10 makes playoffs? This is why playoffs are such horseshit.

Nope, Serbia and Jamaica didn't make the WC.
Avatar 6:10pm Danne D:

Hull City lost to Arsenal this weekend - oddly this result actually sorta enhances the chances that Hull City will make the Europa League.

Arsenal plays Hull City (go Tigers!) for the FA Cup on 5/17. The winner gets a spot in the Europa League (the 2nd-tier European contest to the Champions League). However, if Arsenal finishes high enough in the Premier League, they'll get a Champions League spot and Hull City would get the Europa League spot even if they lose the FA Cup Final.

Customer service in Canada would be VERY polite.
Avatar 6:23pm Danne D:

Sorry I am from New Jersey. When they got sold they took every possible New Jersey reference away from this team as fast as possible. 7 years of a team in lame duck status - that's even longer than the Expos I think.

All cover for a guy's real estate project pulling on heartstrings for a team who's fanbase has mostly shuffled off this mortal coil 50+ years ago in another sport.

I am free agent as an NBA fan - if the Raptors didn't have the goofy logo they'd be a stronger candidate.
Avatar 6:23pm Danne D:

@Studio B Ben - if you want to upset a random person call directory assistance in Montreal and ask for an English speaking operator :)

Better still, Quebec City! It's always more deeply French, and remember that it's full of "garbage people" rednecks too!

In equestrian news, the Fighting Gamecocks lost the national championship match to the Georgia Bulldogs in a tiebreaker at the Extraco Events Center in Waco, Texas this past Saturday.

@glenn: But, they certainly won't be *happy* to get you an English operator :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm SeanG:

whatever happened to Clint Mathis??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Sounds like a rather "Dandy" NY baseball mascot... ;)
Avatar 6:33pm Danne D:

@Matt - Montreal is plenty fine for such things. I also did this (accidentally) about 20 years ago when I was inquiring about getting Habs tickets.

Funniest thing in Canada is old town Quebec. It's nice but really like an amusement park. There's a gate and a bleak mall across the road
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Matt from Springfield:

I'm going to Los New Orleans in a couple weeks! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Ken From Hyde Park:

In Quebec City, I was amused by the changing of the guard ceremony when they led the goat around on a leash.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Matt from Springfield:

I'll take that suggestion Danne -- though, not when ordering Montreal bagels or smoked meat..
Avatar 6:37pm Danne D:

For Bronwyn this should clear this up:

The Utah Jazz used to be the New Orleans Jazz
The Jazz were eventually replaced by the Hornets who moved from Charlotte - recently the Hornets changed their name to the Pelicans.
The Bobcats eventually were started as an expansion team to replace the Hornets in Charlotte. Since the Hornets name is now available, the Bobcats will change their name to the Hornets next season.

None of this has anything to do with the Tennesee Titans.
Avatar 6:37pm northguineahills:

Well, next season, the Bobcats will be renamed the Hornets.
Avatar 6:38pm Danne D:

Michael Jordan owns the Bobcats, right? I can't root for them then.
Avatar 6:38pm northguineahills:

Danne put it better then I. ...and let's not get into the Minneapolis Lakers.
  6:39pm KP:

How's the Jazz scene in Utah
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Matt from Springfield:

@KP: Outta sight, Daddy-o!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm Carmichael:

Danne D, adopt the Golden State Warriors. They kick the Lakers'asses every time they play. That should be incentive enough.
Avatar 6:43pm Danne D:

Now the Sacramento Kings - that's a different case - they nearly moved to Seattle to presumably become the new Sonics (or SuperSonics) but then the NBA didn't approve the move. Previously they were the Kansas City Kings and for a brief time they actually were divided between Kansas City and Omaha (as the Kansas City-Omaha Kings). Before that they were the Cincinnati Royals (with Oscar Robertson) and I guess when they moved to Kansas City using the Royals name was frowned upon by the baseball team of the same name. Before they were in Cincinnati, they were the Rochester Royals which was a name change from Rochester Pros which in turn was a name change from the Rochester Eber Seagrams and originally the Rochester Seagrams. Believe it or not the organization that is now the Sacramento Kings was founded in 1923(!)
Avatar 6:44pm Danne D:

@Carmichael the problem with adopting the Warriors is they are moving to San Francisco and abandoning an adoring fan base in hardscrabble Oakland. Can't do it.
Avatar 6:46pm northguineahills:

Cool, thanks Danne. It's been quite a while since I've read a sports almanac. (I used to religiously before my teen years.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Matt from Springfield:

"NBA History" D!
  6:46pm KP:

Hey I have a lot of stadium pix on phone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Matt from Springfield:

The 76ers were originally in Syracuse NY (Nationals), where I was born. Heard about the Rochester Royals, didn't know about all those Seagrams names though!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Various other relocated NBA teams - L.A. Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies, Golden State Warriors, Detroit Pistons. There may be others.
Avatar 6:47pm northguineahills:

Whittier College is the poets.
  6:48pm Robert:

I was bugged when the Denver Rockets changed their name to Nuggets after the Houston Rockets got started, but I gotta admit Nuggets was a better name.

Remember the Toronto Northmen? Before the season started they became the Memphis Southmen, but the locals preferred the name Grizzlies.

Then there were the Baltimore CFL Colts, who were obliged to call themselves officially the Stallions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Carmichael:

It will take the Kings 10,000 years to recover from the Maloof era. They cannot shed the sad sack support employees who don't seem to give 2 shits.

Best team name I ever heard was phoned in to Dennis Miller for a team in London, England: the London Ontarios.
Avatar 6:53pm northguineahills:

That's beautifully hilarious, Danne!
  6:53pm andy in brooklyn:

oh yeah....recent times article about soccer(particularly english premier league) is now the de rigeur sports conversation topic amongst the literary set. any comment?
Avatar 6:54pm Danne D:

Denver and Houston could've been like the Rough Riders and Roughriders of the NBA :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm Carmichael:

Race Car driving is not a sport. There's no ball, puck or bat. And there's no goal posts.
Avatar 6:54pm northguineahills:

Thanks, reading it now, andy.
Avatar 6:56pm northguineahills:

I remember as a kid in the 80s getting last week's The Times (London) at the library just to get soccer scores, b/c it was non-existent in the US media.
Avatar 6:56pm Danne D:

The difference b/w F1 and IndyCar is that in Formula 1 there's like zero passing.

In IndyCar there may or may not be passing as nobody watches.
  6:57pm Robert:

But race car driving does have gloves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: That photo would make a good Twitter/profile picture :)
Avatar 6:57pm Danne D:

actually the Bahrain F1 race was pretty good :)
I'm rooting for Hulkenberg on the Force India team - they are underdogs :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Ken From Hyde Park:

There should be a sport with a ball and roller skates and motorcycles. It should be called rollerball.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm SeanG:

Avatar 6:58pm Danne D:

The F1 races are shown live on NBC Sports Network - this past weekend it was on at 2:30 am :)

Have a good night everyone :)

Was just kidding about IndyCar btw ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Carmichael:

Good point, Robert. Old joke from the 90s era SF Giants fans: What do the Giants and Michael Jackson have in common? They bothe wear a glove for no apparent reason.
