Replay a mistake? Seriously Fifa?

I have complained about FIFA before, and I’m sure I will complain about them again. There’s a certain corruption that comes from any all-inclusive international organization. They stop making the best choices and find a way to try to even the playing field. This can lead to numerous poor choices. FIFA has made their share

Soccer (football’s) Lost Boys

Sad stories… CurrentTV video on the dark side of football in Africa. Bogus agents, ‘merchants of hope’ take money from poor families with promises of fame and fortune in Europe – abandoned, some will be foced into drugs and prostitution. LINK

The USA got hosed

I suppose on one hand, this should not be a issue. In any sport, if you are the stronger team you’re expected to go out there and win soundly. If it’s close enough to complain about a single call, then the team made a huge mistake. In the other hand, America’s comeback in their World

I hate those damn vuvuzelas!

I’m not a soccer fan (I am a big fan of what we Americans call football though).  I’m about as much a soccer fan as I’m a fan of ice skating or swimming. However, I do bring myself to watch it when America is competing in some major soccer event. At last big soccer event

Conference Expansion: The Impact on College Football

The world of college football is a interesting place. A lot of sports have their share of crazy fans and pageantry, but college football has both a rich history (with many programs dating back to the 1800s), pageantry, and a level of loyalty that is unparalleled for a amateur sport. To see crowds of up

The SEC: Football is Our Religion

This song is by the group rednex (Cotton Eyed Joe) No sporting event on earth can compare to the pride, passion and intensity of Southeastern football. Every team is each other’s rival on some level. Every town lives and dies by its team and every team is a flagship university of its state. With all

Another perfect game?

Armando Galarraga pitched a perfect game. I know he’s not credited for one, because of the blown call, but he did it. Sometimes you have to look at a blown call in a “what if” manner. You can not know if a bad call in the third quarter of a football game really made the

Holladay, Hopper, and Hamas.

Roy Halladay pitched a perfect game. Not to take anything away from Roy, but this is the second perfect game this season. There have been only 20 in major league history. Clearly baseball players going back to the non-steroid enhanced body types are not quite as good as when they were all roided up (further

So what if it’s the off season? College (American) football update!

I’m a huge college football fan, so just bear with me…
Michigan announced their own punishment for their NCAA violations. Michigan admitted to violations, but only saw fit to dock themselves a total of 130 practice hours and two quality-control staffers. In the world of the NCAA, which likes taking away wins, bowl eligibility, and scholarships

Move along, nothing to see here.

LB Cushing suspended four games
I repeat, there is nothing to see here. USC is clearly committed to running a clean football program. Their basketball program on the other hand…
