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...

MLB Cracking Down… Harder

MLB Commissioner Bud Selig made a decision back in 2004 that he would take a stand against the use of performance-enhancing drugs in a big way by testing players for illegal substances and levying suspensions on those who had been caught. Back then, the penalty for a first-time offender was a ten day suspension, which…

Today’s media would probably describe a player like Oscar Robertson as arrogant, selfish, undiplomatic, and at times an outright dick. In truth, this account of the man we remember today as ‘The Big O” isn’t necessarily wrong. Oscar was brash, abrasive, rude, and downright frightening. Despite his immense talent, he was a nightmare to play…

This is a column written for the Georgetown Voice. It can be found on their website here. While many of my fellow Georgetowners escaped to tropical paradises in the Caribbean for spring break, dropping serious coin on beachside resorts and fruity alcoholic drinks, I flew out to the aesthetically bland Phoenix, Arizona. Far from any…

Manziel, Bridgewater, Watkins, Clowney. These are the names that come to mind when thinking about this year’s NFL draft. These players have been in front of the ESPN cameras for almost the past two years due to their professional potential and even more so for their actions off the field. It is often the case,…

The novel thing about movies

By:

For about as long as there have been movies, people have been making books into movies. The urge makes sense, as many of humanity’s greatest stories had already been written down by the time motion pictures had emerged. Even today’s bestsellers, like The Hunger Games trilogy or Gone Girl, are being adapted into films. Because…

Halftime is extremely excited to get off of the European continent and review a team with a little more spice. Colombia’s footballing stock has risen over the past few years with the advent of players like Jackson Martinez, James Rodriguez, Fredy Guarín, and of course Monaco frontman Radamel Falcao. Colombia placed into a relatively even…

First, many Switched at Birth fans finally got what they have been waiting for since the first season: the reuniting of “Bemmett”, the relationship between main characters, Bay and Emmett.

Today, it is impossible to read an article about sports and avoid having a bunch of numbers thrown in your face. In the last ten years, the way that sports is analyzed and reported has completely transformed. In a business that used to be centered on great stories, it is interesting that data analysis has…

Featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger, one of the most prominent action movie stars of all time, Sabotage follows the time-honored plot of money being stolen and people being killed. But, with a movie like this, the plot is not what people go to see. What matters is a high body count and lots of gunfire, and on…

Odds are, your bracket has fallen apart.  Maybe you had Duke in the Final Four.  Maybe you had Wichita St. proving all of its critics wrong and winning it all.  Maybe, you had a perfect first day bracket until New Mexico St. had to go ruin an incredible comeback in the night’s final matchup and…
