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.

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....
