Champions League Reactions: Semifinal Second Leg

Wow, what a week. Liverpool FC 4-0 FC Barcelona (4-3 agg.) You know what at this point I’m just going to do player ratings because I don’t think I can string together proper paragraphs about this game. Because so many individuals deserved special praise or scorn, this is the easiest way to keep track. If...

, , and The Voice’s Hockey Experts’ Round 3 Predictions

Our “experts” are keeping score of how many series they predict correctly and incorrectly, though doing anything would yield better results than what Will Shanahan has had. A bonus is awarded for picking the correct number of games it takes for a team to advance. The current grisly standings look like this: Telerski: 6 correct,...

Champions League Reactions: Semifinal First Leg

We got two very different semifinals this week, but I personally wasn’t all that surprised by anything that happened. So let’s take a look, shall we? Tottenham Hotspur FC 0-1 AFC Ajax Before I get into any of the game, the Spurs medical staff should be ashamed of themselves. Jan Vertonghen took a nasty clash...

Champions League Reactions: Quarterfinals Second Leg

This year’s Champions League quarterfinals didn’t disappoint as far as drama is concerned, and I’m definitely looking forward to the semifinals in a couple weeks. Short intro today, simply because I’m too excited and want to talk about the matches. Juventus 1-2 AFC Ajax (2-3 agg.) TNT didn’t listen to me (I wonder why), so...

Women’s Soccer in Spain

Soccer in Spain is a religion. Kids grow up playing and watching it. There is not a single person who has not played at school. It is Spain’s way of life. Nevertheless, until recently, Spain had never enjoyed major success in men’s national team competitions. Spain had qualified for both  World Cups and European Championships,...

I made it through watching almost the full first half of the NFL’s Pro Bowl this year, which is an improvement upon last year’s viewing. I made a point to give the new format of the game a chance and committed myself to paying attention to the so-called “improvements” the league claimed it had made….

I don’t get it. I just don’t freakin’ get it. I understand why footballers take what they can get in terms of career advancement, and I understand that a footballer only has so many good years in his legs, but, for the life of me, I just cannot understand why a slightly underrated winger would…

The Conference Championships are over and now only two teams are left standing: The Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks. Before the season, this was an extremely popular Super Bowl pick, as both teams seemed poised to go all the way in the ‘sophomore’ campaigns of each of their very talented quarterbacks.

I am in no way a Boston sports fan. Regardless of the sports season, I actually secretly hope that Boston teams fail in their pursuit of a championship. Super Bowl, World Series, Finals, Stanley Cup—doesn’t matter to me. I think my grudge against Boston sports teams originated from too many Angel losses to those damn…

I thought it would be interesting to imagine how the New York Knicks would behave if they celebrated Christmas, family-style. The setting is Mike Woodson’s house. Woodson sits in a bathrobe, bleary-eyed, dreading the arrival of the various members of his team in a few hours. Suddenly, the doorbell rings. Woodson walks to the door…
