Geoff Cameron: What Must Change in U.S. Soccer: "But this is the mentality that is so toxic across the board in youth soccer in America. It’s not about proving yourself every day. It’s about what you did last year. It’s about who you know. It’s about your size. It’s about your reputation. It’s about what fancy youth club you play for."

Rudy, Interrupted: South Carolina State's 55 Year-Old Back: "He's the only player without even a single accessory: no leggings, no wristbands, no gloves, just team-issued blue-and-white striped shorts, his No. 47 jersey and an unadorned helmet. With the pads bulking his chest and the helmet guarding the wisp of grey at the peak of his hairline, he hardly seems 55 years old."

Remembering Amare as He Might Have Been:

Like everything during that era of Phoenix prosperity, the team's plans for the future moved in warp speed. Internally, the Suns imagined a new positional prototype for their high-octane system, to be unleashed in the following season. Point center, they called it. Amare Stoudemire, the 22-year-old future of the franchise, was to be its apostle.

Tom Brady's 4-Game Suspension Reinstated for DeflateGate: A federal appeals court has ruled that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady must serve a four-game DeflateGate suspension imposed by the NFL, overturning a lower judge and siding with the league in a battle with the players union. "We hold that the Commissioner properly exercised his broad discretion under the collective bargaining agreement and that his procedural rulings were properly grounded in that agreement and did not deprive Brady of fundamental fairness," the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday in New York.

SportsFilter: The Friday Huddle

The Patriots put together a Top 10 of Gil's calls. #6 features Scott Zolak behaving like . . . well, Scott Zolak in the background.

One of the things I probably wouldn't notice if it wasn't for Deadspin: that Andy Benoit of MMQB is nuttier than a twenty-pound fruitcake. The hot takes are endless. I want a steel cage match between him and Jaworski to see who can justify the most outlandish claim by mentioning they watch a lot of game tape. We're probably only a few years away from a politician justifying something horrible by saying, "You'd need to watch the All 22 film to understand."

Boston has such a notorious history with armored car robberies

No, Charlestown does. Howie Long knows what's up.

Mookie Betts Interviewed During Play

They have hot mics down near ice level in the NHL and they pick up some golden moments

Twenty years on (24, I'm guessing it was during the Rangers Cup win), my sister and I still laugh about a random "Terry, what the fuck!" from the playoffs.

Former Bills GM Bill Polian is the co-founder of a new football league

If the AAF is willing to pay some heavy money

Their initial TV deal is with CBS' cable sports network, so I wouldn't expect that to happen. Times are different now and the NFL's TV deal dwarfs any other potential revenue stream.

My enjoyment of the Bruins' newest rookie coming in and averaging 2 points/ game is somewhat tempered by the fact I was about 3 years behind his dad in school.

Are you thinking of Talib or did Crabtree get crabby with every CB he faced?
