The Worst Fan Behavior in America

The brawls that broke out during the 49rs-Raiders preseason game last week got me thinking about the worst cases of sports behavior by American sports fans.

A couple of notes about this list. First, I only counted cases that happened in the United States or had a United States team involved.  So things like the attack on Monica Seles and the Heysel Stadium Disaster were not included in this list.  Second, if an athlete played a major role in the altercation (other than innocent victim) then I didn't include them.  Sorry, Piston's fans.

Let's Go Racin'

With the end of the baseball season coming fast and furious and football just around the corner, I thought I would take the time to remind everyone that the NASCAR "Chase to the Checkered Flag" was about to begin. You say you don't care????????????? Well, That's the problem. The biggest news out of NASCAR has been Danica Patrick. I think Patrick is great for the sport of racing, but what does that say about the foundation of the sport when it's centered around the GoDaddy Girl. I think it's up to the JDaddyDu Army to fix NASCAR!

The Most Over-Hyped Players in the NFL

Here we go football fans. Another season is upon us and I thought I should warn you all about believing everything you read. The only thing you can really count on is what you read here at JDaddy, we will never (well almost never steer you wrong).

My list of Over Hyped players includes some of my favorites. It does not mean these are not good players, just that "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!". TV color commentators are usually at fault here, but old JDaddy will bring the Millens, Theismans and even old "Jaws" back to Earth.

University of Miami Scandal

The University of Miami scandal that broke this week on Yahoo! Sports is the latest in a rough stretch for major college football programs.  Recently we've had the Reggie Bush/O.J. Mayo scandal at USC and Tattoo-parlor-gate at Ohio State.  But the violations in those two cases pale in comparison to what has been going on at The U. 

A lot of people have been comparing the the Miami allegations with what went on at SMU during the 1980s which resulted in SMU receiving the death-penalty and not playing football for 2 years.  I went and compared the two cases to see if the Miami case warranted the same level of punishment as SMU.

Frost High School - Playing With The Polar Bears

I have decided that through our BLOG, I am going to come clean............. I spent the first 15 years of my life wanting to "Play With The Polar Bears". You might wonder why a kid from Central Texas would grow up with a dream like this and, quite frankly, I would not blame you.

Corpus Christi Seafood - Blackbeard's

If I can veer off of the sports page for just a bit....

Went to Blackbeard's in Corpus Christi this evening and had a great time.  They had the best fried calamari I've ever eaten.  We also got gator bites which were wonderful.  Even the three-year olds liked the alligator.

I do not think anyone was disappointed with their entrees.  The crab cakes, blackened tilapia, and everything else was great.  We had one person who is not a fan of seafood so she got a chicken fried steak.  The verdict was that the steak was terrific. 

The kid's menu was full of choices as well.

I'm now convinced that Blackbeard's has some of the best Corpus Christi seafood.  The food, the reasonable prices, and the family friendliness (at least at 5 o'clock pm) will make this place a destination in the future.

Finally, a shout out to our waiter, Louie.  Great job Louie!  Even if you are a fan of the Astros and (shudder) the Philadelphia Eagles.

With the start of Texas high school football practice this week we bring you some thoughts on the game in the state as well as some cheerleading facts you might not know.  I can't believe JDaddy didn't work in Lyla Garrity somewhere.
