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

Liverpool part ways with Brendan Rogers: In a move that was either four months too late or six months early, another lackluster 1-1 result was the end of a 3+ season tenure for Rogers. Jurgen Klopp, rested after a four month break, is rumored to be first choice to take over after receiving a positive report on LFC from the team's German former midfielder Didi Hamann.

Blatter faces criminal investigation: Totally unexpected, eh? Amusingly, one of the indicated counts involves a $2M "disloyal payment" to Michel Platini; Platini said the money was legit and "relates to work which I carried out under a contract with Fifa" and he had clarified matters with the authorities. Of course.

NFL limits Junior Seau's daughter to video voiceover at HoF induction: Wow. Because why would the league want to give a voice to the child of one of it's greatest players?

USA 1-1 Panama: The US Men were pretty poor across the board last night but having already clinched their group the result itself was unimportant.

Messi goal puts Barcelona past the post: Winning 1-0 over Atletico Madrid, last season's champions, at the Vincente Calderon, clinches the season title despite Real Madrid's 4-1 win today. This is their seventh title in ten years, with the Copa Del Rey and Champions League finals still to play.

Liverpool part ways with Brendan Rogers

As well-known here I'm a long time Red and I come down on the four months late side of that question. What, I'd like to know, was the point of giving Brendan $100M+ to spend and only 11 games to make the team work? Especially when Benteke, Sturridge, Henderson and Firmino have all missed games from injury meaning Rogers really never got to put out a first choice starting XI, much less give that group time to jell.

Lewandoski, OMG, that fifth goal especially was amazing! Pep's reaction is totally understandable.

FA have charged Costa, three game ban and all. Roman's clearly not paying the right people or they were distracted by all the oinking in London today.

Little help? Apologies for the link title.

Warumpis (from the YT clip) like Status Quo to me ;) Lover how the singer stops to take a water break and then restarts the song.

James Blake reportedly thrown to the ground, cuffed and detained by several NYPD officers.

Are we really at the point in our society where identity thieves any suspects need to be taken down bodily if they're not even running?

FTFY, Etrigan.
