Inside Man: A Bronx Tale: Bronx Banter's Alex Belth profiles Ray Negron. His life in baseball began in 1973, when Steinbrenner himself caught the teenager spray painting an "NY" logo on the outside of the Stadium and gave him a job as a bat boy. "Negron has done everything from shine the players' shoes and collect their dirty jockstraps, to bring them food from their favorite restaurants and park their cars. He has been an agent, an actor, an advisor, and a liaison; a confidant, a sounding board and a whipping boy to some of the biggest egos in the game. He is whatever he needs to be."

I love Abby Wambach, but the story shouldn't be that she's deciding whether to play in the 2016 Olympics. It's whether she can make the squad.

She 'clarified' some of her comments today, being sure to say, "It's not a foregone conclusion I would be chosen." Unfortunately, I don't think Ellis has the intestinal fortitude to cut Abby if she's not one of the best 18 available.

U.S. Defeats China, Advances to Women's World Cup Semifinals

That was the quarterfinals. They advanced to the semis.

So glad Ellis finally freed the Irish. First time all tournament I was optimistic about the starting 11.

When two teams have a similar primary kit (yellow shirts), who determines which team wears their alternates?

From the official regulations of the 2015 WWC.

3. In principle, each team shall wear its official team kit as declared on the official team colour form. If the two teams' colours and the match officials' colour might cause confusion, in principle, team A in the official match schedule will be entitled to wear its official team kit and team B will use its reserve team kit or, if necessary, a combination of the official and the reserve team kits. FIFA will endeavour to ensure that each team wears its official team kit at least once during the final competition.

6. FIFA will inform the teams of the colours that they shall wear for each
match.

I've always hated the Norway team after their 'train' celebration in '95. But they are starting to win me over with this.
