Punt the Pigskin: Why We Should Stop Watching Football

Football season is coming. And with that, I am here to bring you the most important analysis you need before the NFL season even begins: you should stop watching football. Furthermore, the NFL and the sport of tackle football should be abolished in America. This take has been a long time coming for me. For...

Andres Iniesta: El Ilusionista, la Leyenda

To the casual soccer fan, the name Andres Iniesta will be forever associated with Spanish dominance because of two touches. The first wasn’t great, as instead of bringing down Cesc Fabregas’ pass, he popped it up, but the second was sublime, volleying past Dutch goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg. He crowned Spain as world champions with his...

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. In June, 32 nations will face off in the World Cup for the title of the greatest international soccer team. The World Cup offers...

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

Ahhh, baseball: This lovely country’s greatest achievement. Some people like the Yankees, while others like the Red Sox. All things aside, though, we can all agree on one thing: Baseball goes best with a dog. How do you like your dog? Some like it with ketchup and onions. Some like it with mustard and kraut....

The Ballad of Southampton

The Ballad of Southampton

By:
10/10/2014

The shadows of giants loom large over St. Mary’s Stadium. A founding member of the Premier League in 1992, Southampton is the only team south of London currently in the English top flight. The Saints have never dominated the English game like some of their counterparts. Other than a 1976 FA Cup Victory and a…

And then there Were Four

And then there Were Four

By:
10/09/2014

In my defense, I did at least correctly predict the AL Wild Card Game, which is about as well as any professional sports writers have predicted these playoffs have done. I’ll jump right into the absurdity: Kansas City sweeps Anaheim Nobody saw this coming. Well, technically, of the 26 paid experts ESPN had predict the…

The Strain on Aces

The Strain on Aces

By:

Kershaw, Scherzer, Verlander, Price, Shields, Lester, Bumgarner, Strasburg.  These are some of the biggest names in baseball.  But something separates these guys from a Cabrera or a Trout.  Sure, they’re pitchers, but they’re more than that.  They’re aces.  When October rolls along, aces take on an entirely new role.  They go from pitching once every…

Raising the Specter of Corruption in Serie A

Raising the Specter of Corruption in Serie A

By:
10/08/2014

I am writing this because I am bitter. I am bitter about a league that has been diminished by corruption.  I am bitter about the blatant disparity with which teams in Serie A are treated, specifically the exceptional favoritism shown to Juventus.  There is a reason they are not-so-affectionately referred to as ‘Rubentus’ (rubare meaning…

The Chaos of Week 6 in College Football

The Chaos of Week 6 in College Football

By:
10/08/2014

The sixth week of the college football season contained all the marks of excitement, including marquee matchups featuring top teams, a successful Hail Mary pass, record-setting shootouts, and upsets. Lots of upsets. The #2, #3, and #4 teams all lost, as did 11 of the top 20 teams, making week six one of the most…

Rooting for L.A.’s Other Basketball Team

Rooting for L.A.’s Other Basketball Team

By:
10/07/2014

Because I am likely one of the only Los Angeles Clippers fans you’ll ever know in your lifetime, I’ll be the first to admit it-being a Clippers fan can be pretty miserable. L.A. loves its basketball, but the city has been a Lakers town since the organization relocated from Minneapolis in 1960. In every street…

The NFL Thermostat: Week 5

The NFL Thermostat: Week 5

By:
10/07/2014

HOT 1. New York Giants Offensive Rookies This comes in part from my own bias for my hometown team, as several rookies have helped contribute to their team’s success this year.  But on Sunday the Giants rookies were especially good, leading to a comeback victory. Running Back Andre Williams took over for an injured Rashad…

A Game Worth Watching: The NBA Preseason

A Game Worth Watching: The NBA Preseason

By:
10/06/2014

June 16th, 2014 marked one of the saddest days of the calendar year. Suffering and despair came over our souls as we went from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows. Women and children were crying while the fathers tried to hold it together for the sake of their family.  The NBA offseason…

NBA Preview: Pacific Division

NBA Preview: Pacific Division

By:
10/06/2014

In a conference full of remarkable talent and promise, the Pacific Division offers a peculiar mix of potential and weakness. Los Angeles Clippers At the top of the Pacific are the Los Angeles Clippers, a team whose biggest acquisition came off the court. The unmitigated disaster of the Donald Sterling debacle left the organization in…

Another week. Another set of Champions League matches. With Week 3 play wrapping up, we are now a third of the way through the group stages. Here’s a look back at some this week’s big matches. PSG 3, Barcelona 2 Barcelona traveled to Paris to play out a wonderfully exciting five-goal shootout. PSG were missing…
