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

Usain Bolt scored two goals in his first professional soccer start: The first goal came from his speed but also featured a nice awareness of positioning, nutmegging the defender and going near post where the goalie was unsighted. Seems like he may have earned a contract!

Zinedine Zidane leaves Real Madrid after third Champions League title: After winning nine of 14 trophies in less than three full seasons and four days out from breaking Liverpool hearts, Zizou walks away only saying the team needs a change. Gabe Marcotti on the real why, such as it is.

SportsFilter: The Thursday Huddle

@rcade, as long as you're doing maintenance... Ever since you switched to https I have the weirdest experience. I seem to be signed in, as I see the number of new comments per post but the sign in box on the top of the sidebar shows the form with username/password filled in instead of "username (logout) AND the new comment count is always off by at least one (e.g., the new day's huddle shows comments as, say, "2 comments, 1 new" when it isn't possible that I saw any comments.

Then, if I click the sign in button, the display is correct but I lose the new comments per post number.

Very strange. Is anyone else seeing similar?

So...About that Serena Cartoon

Pretty sad result. No sympathy when a white cartoonist can't take reasonable criticism (e.g., Bernice King's) and understand that a white Australian man is not capable of determining where the line is on racism.

The nice thing about Portland having the Timbers and Trailblazers is we already have the trees and trails....

Beaverboard, have you ever been to Fake Portland? Every bar I go to has a long list of brews and rarely do I see any overlap.

If the NFL and NBA and MLB can play outside, so can La Liga. No definitive plans announced yet but the first edition could come this season in partnership with Relevent, who run the big money International Champions Cup.
