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

Documents Show Secret Plans for Elite League of Top Clubs: People have been talking about this since at least the late '80s, and the possibility was the direct cause of UEFA creating the Champions League in '92, but the documents leaked here suggest the big boys are not yet satisfied with their share of the money. Hoo boy!

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!

Timbers were way outplayed in that game, score was far more likely to be 4-0 than 2-2.

Javascript would be much more verbose without &&. Javascript also doesn't really do bit-shifting. :p

I think tahoemoj decoded it best...

I saw bits of the game, and highlights, and I don't understand how any defensive player can hold up his head after giving up 50 points to any team. The offenses were both great and the game was a lot of fun, especially at the end if you were rooting for LA, but a great game? I don't agree.

Beaverboard, actually I moved to Portland two years ago but even when I lived in CA I was in the southern part of the Bay Area so 200 miles from the fire. Though my co-workers there say the air quality is horrible and schools all over the area are closed today. Thanks for thinking of me!

NFL Moves Mexico City Game to L.A.

Yeah, because the NFL never f's up the field for other sports. Like the condition of Wembley a few weeks back when City played Spurs a day after a Jax game thre.

Documents Show Secret Plans for Elite League of Top Clubs

Gab Marcotti said on ESPN that this is in fact nothing new and was mainly a negotiating ploy for the big clubs to get more money out of UEFA. Which they accomplished with top leagues getting more guaranteed group stage places in the Champions League and the moderately-talked about third Europe-wide competition coming in the next couple of years.

Documents Show Secret Plans for Elite League of Top Clubs

Sadly, my Liverpool FC are apparently part of the planning group, which would not be able to launch for at least 5-6 years.

After Maryland Player's Death, Coach and Athletic Director Keep Their Jobs

Even Scott Van Pelt, a Maryland alum, was highly critical of the school last night on his show, siding with the university president who wanted the coach and AD gone. Bad beat for sure.
