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

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.

Cristiano Ronaldo 'wants to leave' Real Madrid after being accused of tax fraud: It's silly season for soccer as the rumors go deep into the crazy. Real Madrid may pay as much as €135 million for 18 year old French striker Kyian Mbappe (who's started only since November for Monaco). Arsenal, Liverpool or PSG may go in for Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with bids nearing $100M. Another 18 year old, keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma tells AC Milan he will not renew contract before it expires next Summer, so he may go for a fee far exceeding the current record for a goal-minder. And Roman Abramovich will sack Antonio Conte if Chelsea boss continues behaviour despite running away with the Premier League in his first season.

Under-20 World Cup: England beat Venezuela in final: The Young Lions ride a Dominic Calvin-Lewert first half goal and outstanding goalkeeping by Freddie Woodman to bring home the nation's first world championship at any level in 51 years. Venezuela were camped in the England end almost the entire second half but between Woodman and a packed back line were never able to breakthrough.

Ross Barkley Nixes Move to Chelsea on Transfer Deadline Day

This was one of the weirder transfer dramas of which I'm aware. Did Barkley actually have a medical or not? Guess it depends on who you believe.

The open questions for me are Alexis Sanchez and (sob) Philip Coutinho. Neither got the move they really wanted and now I wonder if either or both will pull a Diego Costa-like sulk, or at least be a huge dressing room drag.

Justin Verlander Traded to Houston Astros

For a pitcher of his quality and age why do the Tigers need to pay so much of his salary?

Matthew Stafford signs richest NFL deal ever, $135M all told, $90+M guaranteed, and yet fairly cap-friendly. Because of course he deserves more than Aaron RodgersTom BradyDerick Carr.

Harvey Impacts LSU/BYU Game in Houston on Saturday

Maybe LSU should take the hint and stop playing football before the storms it's causing shred the entire southeastern United States?

NoMich, I assume you'd use clip starting around 55 seconds when Coleman starts his solo? Not sure MLB would be down with that kind of Jazz...
