Sports Bio

Brazilian soccername: Binhosa

Fan of:
- Liverpool FC
- USC Trojans (class of '83, except I had no class while in attendance)
- Original SJ Earthquakes, RIP
- Barcelona FC
- SJ Sharks
- 49ers
- NY Giants

Baseball seriously sucks, it's boring, they could shut down MLB tomorrow and I'd be happy especially since the channel that broadcasts the SF Giants games is a Fox affiliate and their games regularly screw up my viewing schedule.

I won the 2005 NFL Playoff Pool

Sorry celestial Sachin but Virat Kohli has taken command of the space fleet: Kohli is close to being the first batter to rank top for Test, ODI and 20/20 formats simultaneously. "Kohli is in the middle of something extraordinary, performing at an all-format plateau beyond the reach of any other player in the current era."

Premier League clubs’ brave move may be ruined by elite European predators: The Premier League voted to close its Summer transfer window on the Thursday before the opening weekend of the season beginning next season. Now they'll have to wait to see if any of the other big leagues follow, or else wait to see how many players get picked off in the two weeks or so the window remains open for Spain, Germany, France and Italy. Mourinho and Conte aren't worried... Popocorn not included

Mexican soccer legend Rafael Marquez Alvarez among 22 sanctioned for alleged ties to drug trafficking: Not a lot of detail here yet but: "The Treasury says in a statement that it will also sanction 43 entities in Mexico, including a soccer team and casino."

DEMPSEY STRIKE TIES ALL-TIME MNT GOALS RECORD, CAPS USA'S 2-0 GOLD CUP SEMIFINAL WIN VS. COSTA RICA: They'll face the winner of tonight's Mexico-Jamaica match. While Dempsey was definitely the super-sub, Jozy Altidore had a strong night in which he wasn't bitten even once and Darlington Nagbe was probably man of the match. Coach Bruce Arena now has the team unbeaten in 13 matches since taking over last Fall.

Geoff Cameron: What Must Change in U.S. Soccer

Cameron is not wrong. The US Soccer president elected tomorrow needs to get on this page, no matter how he or she thinks it might embarrass MLS.

Super Bowl 0x34

All my Lions fans buddies on Facebook aren't too happy with the Matt Patricia hire right now

I just wonder if he'll shave the damn beard to at least look like a head coach. Probably too many years of working under Mr. Just Tear the Damn Sleeves Off My Sweatshirt to hope for that.

Your turn, Dan Snyder.

I'm thinking Snyder dug in his heels so far he can't see out of the hole.

I'm not crying sitting here in the office reading about Smart and that poor girl, not a bit.

I would love to see Fitzgerald tapped. Not only a lively personality, he's also not another retired white star in a prominent slot.
