The Tampa Bay Lightning looked to start their four game home stand off on the right foot Monday night. With just eight games left to play they needed every possible point to slide into the second wild card spot. Standing in their way were the always formidable Chicago Blackhawks coming off an embarrassing 7-0 loss to the Florida Panthers
While there is unfortunately no baseball being played during the winter months, we normally have the Hot Stove to keep us warm with endless rumors and huge contracts being handed out by teams who will inevitably regret it.

We all remember when Tony Romo gave that incredibly moving speech about how he was passing the torch to rookie quarterback Dak Prescott, after having previously been the team’s signal-caller since 2003. Romo said all the right things, and had fans feeling bad for him, and also having a lot of respect for Romo in the way he handled the situation.

In his second season with the San Antonio Spurs, 27-year old guard Jonathon ‘the Juice’ Simmons has carved a role for himself in the Spurs’ rotation, as he usually checks into games to give Kawhi Leonard a break, while he runs as the backup three with the Spurs’ second unit. On a nightly basis, Simmons is the Spurs’ 7 th playmaker with a usage percentage of 17.7% of the team’s possessions on offense.
Prior to his sophomore season with the Miami Marlins, Ichiro showed up to Spring Training wearing a shirt with (no doubt) his favorite player on the front. Yup, that’s a crude drawing of Ichiro on the front of the future Hall of Famer’s shirt. Fun, right
