Champions League Reactions: Semifinals, Part 2

Let me get the scores out of the way, because I want to depart from the usual formula.   Real Madrid 2-2 Bayern Munich (4-3 agg.) Ulreich messed up, and Bayern’s front three couldn’t finish. Real had no business moving on, but they’re in the final. Good for them. Roma 4-2 Liverpool (6-7 agg.) Liverpool...

The Case for Morocco to Host the 2026 World Cup

As amazing as the Super Bowl, NCAA Tournament – Women’s if we’re being real –  and Winter Olympics were, the greatest sporting event of the year is still two months away.

NBA Playoffs First Round Reactions and Look-Aheads

The first round of the 2018 NBA playoffs was much more exciting than last year’s. Lower seeds pulled off upsets, multiple series went to 6+ games, and DID LEBRON LOSE? No, just like I said. It took a lot of injuries and mishaps for the playoffs to become as chaotic as they seem to be...

Pups in the Park: A Tradition Unlike Any Other

Champions League Reactions: Semifinals, Leg 1

It’s that time of the year. In arguably the biggest week in European football, four teams play in four games to see who will meet in the Champions League final. Granted, there’s quite a bit of red on display this year, but without further ado, let’s see how the matches went. Liverpool 5-2 Roma Liverpool:...

The Real Homework Your Team Should Be Doing on the NFL Draft QB Class

Four names have dominated the conversation around the pigskin puzzle that is the 2018 NFL Draft. And if you’re a fan of one of the cellar-dwelling franchises that holds an early selection, it’s almost impossible not to have a general understanding of the players who could possibly be the individuals to bring your team back....

On Sunday, Carlos Vela was on one of his long, mazy runs in the 74th minute against the Seattle Sounders, creating both danger for his team as well as relief from the pressure that the Sounders mounted in the second half.

Found nestled deep in Parker Houston’s computer, this ancient artifact holds him, Cam Smith, and Umar Asif accountable for their horrible takes on the NBA All-Star Game. They redraft the players for the game, talk All-Star selections’ place in evaluating historical players, and remember how great T.Y. Hilton is at dodgeball. http://media.blubrry.com/voicepodcastnetwork/p/georgetownvoice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/NBAALLSTAR-22018-9.22-PM.m4aPodcast: Play in new…

Last Thursday, the trade deadline sent the NBA into a frenzy.
