Earl is currently the only member of TSB who is in an actual Hall of Fame. Among his many amateur athletic accolades, he is in the Bowling Hall of Fame in St. Louis, Missouri for his multiple 300 games. He has also competed in an amateur golf tournament against Sergio Garcia, and played in the junior college national championships. Now that he's in the real world, he lives out his professional athletic fantasy through a men's house ice hockey team and Sunday morning tee times. Hit him up on twitter for his rants and "colorful" commentary on live games at @EarlTSB.


The Major League Baseball trading deadline has come and gone. Multiple players have shifted from team to team and this always puts added stress on the players who are on the “trading block”. Did that stress get to Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto? Maybe. Votto wasn’t exactly on the trading block, but his teammate Jay Bruce was.

Zack Hample has become semi-internet famous for two things.  Catching a ton of foul/home run balls at baseball games, and crying about how someone impeded his quest to get one. Well, tonight was not Zack’s night.  Not only did he miss out on one home run ball…he missed out on two.  PAINFULLY.

The best one was the first one. New York Yankees catcher Brian McCann hits a homer to the right field bleachers, and Hample is right there in perfect position. Read the rest of this entry »

While rededicating myself to the game of golf, I always wanted to listen to music while practicing. I’ve tried to feed my wired headphones through my shirt or over my back, but no matter what I do, the headphones either fall out or just annoy me to the point where I have to take them off.  With the help of eBay, I was able to get a free pair of Jabra Sport Coach Wireless Headphones into my ears and on the course for a review. I was very excited to do this and get some beats flowing while playing.  All opinions in this review are my own.

The New York Islanders have been playing from behind for almost their entire first round series against the Florida Panthers. One reason for that is because the Panthers have gotten off to fast starts in three of the first four games. Goals at 1:09, 4:32, 6:17, and 2:25 have put the Isles behind the 8-ball.

After taking back home ice advantage from the Panthers with an overtime win in game 3, the Isles came out with very little energy in game 4 and managed only a handful of uneventful shots on goal. Panthers defenseman Alex Petrovic’s shot from the slot midway through the third period sealed the game as it found the back of the net. The 2-1 win by the Panthers has sent the two teams back to Florida, ultimately making this now a best-of-three series.
