Frustrating game for all Merengues
Frustrating game for all Merengues

It’s been 6 years now. We’ve been cursed at the round of 16 stage in the Champions League. For some reason, I thought this would be the year we would break the curse; but Liverpool Keep Reading..

Without doubt, this is the tie of the round. Manu-Inter might have something to say but in terms of pure prestige this is the biggest game in World football this month.

Rudy Fernandez was robbed.

Rudy Fernandez was robbed.

I still think his performance was severly underrated. I mean, let’s not forget that anyone who came up against Mr. ‘I get a 50 for practically doing lay-ups and changing in a fake phone booth Howard’ or Mr. ‘I do the same dunks every year and get 50’s because I’m short Robinson’ wasn’t going to get past the first round. Both of his dunks were actually ridiculous. It’s too bad it took him so long to pull off the second one though.

And you should all really Keep Reading..

The record is finally broken. His goal against Numancia put him at 307 goals, and his two goals yesterday against Gijon put him at 309  to break the legendary Alfredo Di Stefano’s record.

I’m pumped for this weekend.. Obviously. But I am really looking forward to seeing Rudy Fernandez in the dunk off on Saturday night. He’s slowly developing into one of my favorite players in the NBA. I’ve grown a soft spot for the Blazers this year. The youth, the energy, the crowd, the passion; just fantastic stuff to watch. I would kill to have a guy like Fernandez in the Raptors line-up.

So in case you haven’t heard, it’s my duty to tell you that Keep Reading..

Some soccer commentators can bore you to death, and just plain right completely annoy you. Those ones are usually monotone and show no signs of emotion whatsoever – Even in the most dramatic moment.

I believe that commentators should be the voice of the crowd. They should reflect all the emotions the stadium is experiencing. When the crowd is riled up after a goal; heart pumping fast and adrenaline rushing, the commentator should come to life in the same way. That, my friends, is what makes a good soccer commentator. If by the end of this post, your arm hairs aren’t sticking up then you are just not normal: Keep Reading..

Smith rears his ugly head again.

Smith rears his ugly head again.

If you haven’t noticed yet, Toronto Raptors fans are not too fond of ESPN NBA analyst Stephen A. Smith. First he ripped into the Raptors for drafting Charlie V., then there was that whole ‘classless’ comment where he compared Chris Bosh to former NBAer Manute Bol, and now sparking rumours that Bosh ‘wants out’ of T-Dot (2:20).

This came out of no where. I hope Keep Reading..
