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

Wembley: Football Association offered £800m to sell national football stadium: Are Jaguars moving to London? Even if the Jags don't come, the English national team would no longer call Wembley home, so Woy isn't in favor.

England v Australia: Hosts make record 481-6 in third ODI, that is a lot of runs for an ODI alright! Not sure how Aussies are done after six but just goes to show you should always bat first when you win the coin toss.

Three games, three upsets, can't remember that happening in any recent WC.

Mo Salah was not fun to watch today, that's for sure, aside from winning the penalty. What a gloomy result.

Barry Trotz just Zidane'd the Washington Capitals.

Considering how Netflix are making it rain in Hollywood you'd expect Leonisis to give Trotz the $$$. Silly him

Australia should've had a point, they were worth it, but you can't give Pogba a sniff at a half decent chance in the 88th minute either.

Argentina has one star and a collection of not quites. Seriously, when four defenders collapse on Messi how do de Maria, Aguero, #13, and Biglia not find space for good shots?

Given how long most of Spain's players have been together I'm not sure they need much "managing". But wow this is weird timing, I wonder why RM were unwilling to delay announcing the hire.

Dub Dynasty: Warriors sweep Cavaliers for second straight title

Personally, LBJ coming out after the game with a hand injury he hid for three games smells like a rationalization to this observer because any serious injury would've manifested visible pain with every significant ball-hand impact.
