Now the US is about to finish up its mid-summer preparations it’s time to fully focus on the build up...
Considered by many football lovers as the best national league on the planet, the Premier League is one of the...
We stumbled upon this clip from a few years ago that shows probably the most badass thing to happen on...
Arsenal, who currently sit fourth in the Premier League table, head across town to Wembley Stadium to take on Tottenham...
"Locker talk" just got taken to a whole new level.
Soccer sexism sucks.
You deserve it, ladies!
All these big, tough, football playing boys (at least they seemed tough in high school) started swaying from side to side and singing along with the song. I kid you not. They were really into it. And it was a very tender moment. So much so that it was... awkward to watch. I really felt like I had walked in on a romantic moment.
If you overhear someone talking about NCAA athletics, you probably automatically think of the football and basketball games you see on TV during March Madness and hear about on the news. You may think of swanky warm-ups, the Big 10 teams who win every year, and spoiled brats who don't work very hard at anything. But that is not a very accurate representation of the NCAA.

I must admit, I did get swept up in this year’s World Cup. What’s so wrong about cheering for the U.S. as if I actually understand what’s going on? So what if I hesitated each time before saying “score!” because I wasn’t sure if it was the correct terminology in soccer.
Once every four years, an event comes along that is so globally significant, so life altering, that it brings old men to tears. No, I’m not talking about the presidential election or Olympic figure skating. Ladies and gentlemen, dust off your vuvuzelas (no, that’s not something you need the gyno to find) and get ready for the World Cup.
Clearly the fact that there have been six Harry Potter movies released, (two more in the making) seven books out in stores, and an upcoming theme park in Orlando, doesn’t quite express the extent of society’s obsession with the magic wizardly world. Because college Quidditch (yes, the broomstick-riding sport) is on the rise.
At the risk of sounding like a creeper with a window-less van parked 100 yards from a playground, here are some of my favorite games from recess that I wish were appropriate for eighteen year-olds to play. Note: I like the games...not the kids.
Let's go waaay back (to 2002) to the release of Bend it Like Beckham, when JRM got his first big acting break. He starred as Joe, the Irish soccer (okay, football) coach who quickly fell for his culturally-conflicted student, Jess. I loved this movie for two reasons: first, because it showcased Keira Knightley during her awkward stage before she was really famous, and second, because JRM totally stole the show.
