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

UEFA's messing up: First, UEFA attempts to hide its ticketing incompetence at the Women's World Cup, which kicks in less than three weeks Fans who spent thousands on Women’s World Cup tickets irate to learn seats are not together.

Second, UEFA attempts to hide its cup final selection incompetence:
1. Arsenal's Henrikh Mkhitaryan to miss Europa League final against Chelsea because Armenia and Azerbaijan are locked in a political death match and Mkhitaryan and Arsenal have legit safety concerns.
2. Arsenal and Chelsea set to return half of their Europa League final allocations because Baku's airport cannot accommodate the flights necessary.

Liverpool reach Champions League final after incredible turnaround: Braces from Divock Origi (only playing because Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah were injured) and Gini Wijnaldum (on as a substitute for the injured Andy Robertson) and a stifling defense that barely gave Barcelona's attack sniffs at the goal resulted in an extremely unlikely outcome - the Reds will play in the Finals a second year running. The fans and the team singing You'll Never Walk Alone afterwards.

US women's national team take legal action over discrimination: After their 2016 complaint to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission went exactly nowhere, all 28 members of the USWNT put their names down to ask for equal pay for equal work. Or better work, given their results relative to the USMNT.

Caf Champions League: Esperance awarded win after Wydad VAR controversy but... strange to me that the home side was awarded the win when the refs decided the game couldn't continue.

You would think some District Attorney or Attorney General is already investigating Dundon and the AAF for criminal charges.

Deadspin Has Been Traded

Is the "10-to-34-year-old market" really a thing?

In the sense that they're mostly still dependent on an allowance from parents. Boom, swish! I'm here all week folks!
