Champions League Reactions: Matchday 6

So the group stages are in the books, and I really can’t tell if there’s anybody who actually wants to win this competition. Yes, some big clubs that stumbled had already won their group, but not all of them did, and even some that managed to pull it out in the end were on the...

Here is a quick summary of how all 31 teams of the NHL are faring...

Champions League Reactions: Matchday 5

Group A Club Atlético de Madrid: We need to stop sleeping on Thomas Partey because he’s good. He may not have scored, but his volley really was something else. Also, Ángel Correa–don’t do him like that. Jemerson has a family. Borussia Dortmund: Christian Pulisic and Marco Reus both should’ve scored. They’ll advance, but if they...

A New Purple Reign in Baltimore

The Baltimore Ravens do not make significant changes in personnel very often, but it seems they are on the verge of something new. While we are used to seeing the calm, cool, and collected quarterback Joe Flacco on the field for the Ravens, it seems his days are limited. With first round pick Lamar Jackson...

Should NFL Teams Consider Running the Triple Option?

Each Sunday at 1, I settle in with my lunch and an illegal Reddit stream to watch my beloved Buffalo Bills in action. Around 2 I snap my laptop shut and lament the incredible fall from grace Western New York’s finest football team has experienced since making the NFL playoffs only last year, while going...

On Sunday, Jacob DeGrom had another magnificent outing for the New York Mets. Facing the MLB-leading Boston Red Sox, he surrendered just three runs over seven innings pitched, extending his single-season record of consecutive starts allowing three or fewer runs to 27. He allowed just one walk and recorded 12 strikeouts against one of the…

Reactions to the Oakland Raiders’ trade of superstar defensive end Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears on September 1st have poured in from every corner of the NFL world. The consensus on the deal is that Mack’s move to the Windy City is equally as damning for the Raiders as it is thrilling for the…

The Pac-12 promised to be one of college football’s most interesting conferences in 2018 after five new head coaches were hired this offseason to lead their programs to “After Dark” supremacy – and what a quintet we have on our hands. First-time head coaches Mario Cristobal and Justin Smith were tabbed at Oregon and Oregon…

Arsenal never lost its opening two matches of the Premier League under Arsene Wenger. Yet at the end of Matchday 2 in England’s top flight, former PSG manager Unai Emery has done so. I won’t say that Emery isn’t at fault for some of the decisions he made, because he was: the obvious mistake was…

As the second half rolls on, the postseason push of the Major League Baseball season begins to heat up. In the dog days of August, we start to see who will remain when fall comes around, and who will fade out of the playoff chase. In other words, it becomes more clear who are the…

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…

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…
