North Texas sports blues

Stars are becoming very inconsistent, Rangers are primed to tank, Mavs are currently tanking, and who knows what to expect from the Cowboys. Tough year to be a sports fan in the DFW area.
Plus, I hate the Rockets (NBA best record) and really like the Spurs also (may not make the playoffs for the 1st time in 20 years).
I do feel good for the Astros. but they beat my Dodgers to accomplish their goal. UGH!

I have never understood how the mavs have never been able to sign a star free agent. I think the boys will be a playoff team next year. They have some great talent. If they can avoid distractions they will be fine.

My favorite game of I've ever seen other than winning the Stanley Cup was New Year's Eve 1994. Stars versus Blackhawks. A fight broke out as the puck was dropped to start the game. Even the goalies got into it. That's when I became a fan. That is the best sport to watch live.

All started by the Philadelphia Flyers of the '70s.

Back to back Cup winners and the coach Fred Shero had one simple philosophy: "take the shortest distance to the puck and arrive in ill humor".

Yup.

Another famous Fred Shero quote before game 6 against the Boston Bruins of the Stanley Cup Finals.

"Win together today, walk together forever"

Hockey is the shit. You can put a pair of skates on an accountant or a poet, hand them a stick and they turn into animals.....outstanding!

The Stars are out. Very depressing. Mavs suck. Spurs are seemingly without Kawhi. Rangers are confirmed to suck (they're betting on being good in 2 years, when the new stadium is ready). Go Cowboys?

Us Detroit sports fans have it tough now too. It hasn't been this bad in decades. Of the 4 major teams the Lions are the closest to winning anything...let that sink in.

At least Michigan and MSU football/basketball have had their decent years.

I was nodding my head in agreement until the Michigan/MSU part. I think you at least go it flipped. Don't you mean Michigan basketball and MSU football?

No I just meant that both schools have had their fair share of success in both sports. MSU fell off in football last season and Michigan continues to underachieve, but still they have decent years.

Basketball is better for both as of late, although Izzo always loses to the big dogs.

I think Dantonio's days are numbered. Combo of sex assault and win/loss.
