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

Transfer deadline day signings take Premier League spending to £1.41bn: Overall a pretty quiet window where the biggest rumored deals failed to materialize. Pogba to Real Madrid/Juventus, Erikson to Real Madrid, Gareth Bale to ManUtd/Liverpool/China, nope nope nope. Leroy Sane to Bayern Munich? Oops. American wunderkind Christian Pulisic finally makes his debut Sunday.

Jill Ellis to Step Down as U.S. Women’s National Team Head Coach: Ellis will depart as the first coach in history to win two Women’s World Cups (Italy’s Vittorio Pozzo did it over 80 years ago on the Men's side) after the team's five match Victory Tour this fall. Ellis has an overall record of 102-7-18, and won 13 World Cup matches, drew once and never lost with the USWNT.

Opinion: LeBron James undermines values he's espoused in most disgraceful moment of career

Whoever gave LBJ the idea to speak out on this topic should be fired, there was nothing he could say that would have a positive result for him or the league IMO.

Spurs and France keeper Hugo Lloris suffered a horrific injury Saturday (to take attention away from his howler?) and now is confirmed out for the remainder of 2019.

Jay Gruden Out as Washington Coach

Beaverboard, exactly. Scott Van Pelt ran through the entire line of DC head coaches under Snyder and pointed out that they've done each of the obvious types. Although I think SVP missed one type: minority/African-American. Maybe Bienemy, from your linked article, would fill that (though of course Tomlin will as well).

I liked the Bears' uniforms. Simple, clean, strong colors.

What's wrong with Cam? I only saw bits of the game until the fourth quarter but how the heck do you direct snap to Christian McCaffrey on 4th and half a yard from the 2 with the game on the line? Ron Rivera certainly deserves the 0-2 record.

Guess I don't know baseball as well as I thought because I thought that once a ball goes foul it's always foul.

Andrew Luck Retires from NFL at 29

I can't believe the Colts are letting Luck keep something north of $20M that they could've clawed back contractually.
