A Non-Gamer’s Guide To Playing FIFA

What are some of the most popular video games of all time? I can think of a few…. there’s that game with space soldiers dressed in full body armor, then there’s the one with army people called to duty, and of course there’s the one with the hedgehog. But one that may not come to mind right away? A sports game. And the sport isn’t even popular in this country.   100 Million Copies Sold Worldwide The soccer game franchise FIFA has made a ton of money for EA Sports.Read More

#WCW: Alex Morgan

  -Alex Morgan- Twitter: @alexmorgan13 Instagram: alexmorgan13 Known for: Starring for the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team.   -So now that the U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team has sadly bowed out of the 2014 World Cup, it’s time we turn our patriotic eyes toward the Women’s World Cup in Canada next summer. And as a heterosexual male who isn’t passionate about soccer, the Women’s World Cup offers something which the men’s does not – beautiful women. And the hottest lady in the 2015 Women’s World Cup plays for the goodRead More

USA Knocked Out of World Cup: Still #1

If any of you have been trying to watch real sports on ESPN recently, you may have seen that the United States Men’s Soccer team was eliminated from this World Wide European and South American soccer tournament known as the World Cup. Despite making it further than much of the world expected, the Yanks could not prevail over the world’s leading waffle maker. This comes to no surprise because historically America has not been the best at soccer , football, futbol, or whatever the heck it is called. America mayRead More

Americans and Soccer Need to DTR

The World Cup is here, and Americans just don’t seem to get it. In real futbol cities, work is cancelled, stores are closed, and games are observed like national holidays. Most Americans go about their day per usual, maybe checking in on Bleacher Report or the handy-dandy twitter sidebar that’s been incorporated for the greatest tournament ever. Sports Center is still acknowledging the MLB games that will never end, the NBA draft, and Lebron’s lack of commitment. The only sports news worthy of interrupting World Cup footage thus far wouldRead More

There Are 3 Types of World Cup Fans

The World Cup is like the Olympics. It happens once every four years, and before you can blink, it’s gone. While fans in other countries get amped for any soccer event on the calendar, the sport is only acknowledged in America during this time. In the past couple of weeks I’ve noticed fans cheering for many different reasons, but I’ll narrow them into the following three groups.   Type 1 – The Pretentious Multiculturalist This fan is the most obnoxious of any sports fan. Sorry Yankees fans, they have youRead More

The Kit’s Outta The Bag!

T-minus negative two days ‘til the start of the greatest sporting event in the entire universe! An estimated 10 million viewers in the U.S. alone made the opening matches of the tournament among the largest-watched spectacles across the globe. And sadly, these numbers paled in comparison to Game 1 of the NBA Finals… Priorities, America. I am of course referring to the World Cup. Maybe you’ve heard of it. I will go ahead and assume the majority of the viewership for the NBA Finals is coming from everyone outside MiamiRead More
I could call it “situation”, but really it’s a debacle.  A horrible and confusing predicament that we have been put in as a nation.  The World Cup has begun, and there has already been a lot of drama around upsets, bad calls, dramatic finishes, and the like.  The United States Men’s National Team (USMNT) has almost completely been thrown to the side and discredited as one that has zero chance of making it past their group play into the elimination stages.  As we officially begin to wade into the CupRead More
Psychic Turtle Predicts World Cup Game So the World Cup is upon us and I’m sure you all took bets on who would win the first game. You might have used some weird superstitious tradition to figure it out. Or maybe you wanted to be like Jimmy Fallon and use puppies. Or,  you could have just talked to me and saved yourself the trouble because I knew who was going to win way ahead of you. How did know Brazil was going to win? Because a psychic turtle told me. YesRead More
The 2014 World Cup will kick off in Brazil within the next few weeks, and if futbol isn’t really your thing, perhaps I can interest you in eye candy galore. Beware – this may be the most unattractive team the U.S.A. has ever brought to the World Cup, but there is no need to fear, 31 other countries will be bringing the heat as well.   1. Tim Howard I’m in love with Tim Howard. Yes, he plays keeper and is therefore an automatic leader on the team – super cool.Read More

How Nike Football Came to Dominate Soccer Ads

Guess what? It’s almost May and as of May 1st, we are 42 days away from the greatest sports spectacle in the world, the FIFA World Cup. I understand that soccer may not be everyone’s cup of tea here in the United States but it is undeniably the most popular sport in the world, viewed and played in more countries than any other. It is also my favorite sport. Recently, even in the US, the successes of the Men’s and Women’s National teams have taken the sport’s popularity to aRead More

#WCW – Olympian Babe Lara Gut

Happy Wednesday, bros. Here’s a smokin’ snowbunny from Switzerland, who you’ll probably see on the podium next month. Meet Olympian Lara Gut.   -Lara Gut- Twitter: @laragut Website: www.laragut.ch Known for: Being a badass Olympic athlete. -Lara Gut is every reason you need to watch Alpine Skiing in the Sochi Olympics this February. Her flying down the mountain at 80 mph on skis is the first reason. Her in a spandex speed suit is a very close second. With Lindsey Vonn out for the Games, Lara is not just theRead More
