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....

This is a column written for the Georgetown Voice. It can be found on their website here. Opening Day is a day of rebirth. The promise of a fresh season resting just beyond the tossing of the first pitch is enough to wipe away the past season’s disappointments. It is another opportunity for the victors…

The 2010 South Africa World Cup featured excellent and dominant teams such as Spain, the Netherlands, Germany, and Uruguay… and teams like North Korea. The small Asian nation was in the World Cup for the first time since 1966 and, truthfully, was considered a bit of joke. At the same time there was a kind…

Borowitz Repor: Pacers Lose Appeal

By:

Before the season started in the fall, I had gleefully pronounced that I thought the Indiana Pacers would win the NBA title. This prediction was what you would call a “sexy pick,” since Indiana would be as close to a starless championship team as the league has ever seen. Yet from an outside perspective, Indiana…

Let’s not kid ourselves. After #Sochiproblems, the annexation of Crimea, and concerns over the feasibility of Qatar 2022, a critical light will fall on Russia 2018 at some point. After Brazil 2014 finishes, and FIFA finally pulls its head out of Qatar’s ass, the soccer world will remember the Eastern European middle child and pounce…

Since the beginning of the Robert Griffin III era, I’d contended that a big time receiver would make the difference between the Redskins being a good team and a great team. Well, those aren’t really the options anymore. The Redskins are, frankly, awful. The team finished their last campaign with a 3-13 record, good enough…

After a career year with the Philadelphia Eagles, star wide receiver DeSean Jackson has unofficially become the first player to see the negative effect Aaron Hernandez has left on the NFL. Jackson was recently cut by the Eagles and has now signed with the division rival Redskins despite the fact that he seems to perfectly…

Just one year after winning the National League East Division in 2012, the Washington Nationals fell out of contention for a first place finish by a large margin last year. The entrance of Bryce Harper and his Rookie of the Year season in 2012 brought with it a glimmer of hope for Nats fans that…

On Christmas Day in 1997, Orlando Hernandez, a thirty-two year old Cuban baseball star, boarded a small boat and set sail for the United States. Hernandez, often known simply by his nickname “El Duque,” was a man seeking greener pastures; a year earlier, he had been banned from Cuban baseball amidst allegations that he had…

I don’t know about you, but for me, the name ‘Wilt Chamberlain’ has a mythical, god-like aura attached to it. With superhuman size, superhuman strength, and superhuman personality, Wilt’s lived a life that we will probably never be able to understand. He was Goliath, the freak of nature who absolutely dominated anyone who dared to…

In May of 2013, something revolutionary happened. Jason Collins, a fairly well known NBA center at the time, publicly “came out” and became the first openly homosexual professional athlete. Collins was strongly praised for his bravery and became an instant icon. While he was met with some criticism, the widespread acceptance and admiration that was…
