What an utter and complete joy to witness the 2018 World Cup. For the first time in my life I knew friends living in the various participating countries (Denmark! Belgium! Australia!) and saw firsthand just how into it everyone outside of America is. The rarity of the event combined with a solid tournament set-up really […]

The Olympics are a very confusing time. Often set in the backdrop of poverty or in a cheating nation, the overwhelming joy and good of the games is clashed with the real world that likely needs that money for vital resources rather than a new swimming pool or soccer stadium. So, no NBC, you can’t […]
Often, tennis is overlooked on this site, because, let’s face it: outside of Andy Murray & the Williams sisters, no one has any personality. Both Serena and Andy keep making recent finals and falling just short. I had a feeling this could be their tournament going in, and now with Federer and Jokester eliminated and […]

My dad (oldschool) and I caught the two championship fights Saturday night, and they did not disappoint. The first was my favorite. Miesha Tate finished off Amy Schumer’s lookalike Holly Holm in the climactic final minutes. The first round, they just barely touched each other. I guess all Holm does is use her giant legs […]
But unfort, like your gay-ass sport, your career will be ending very shortly. That’s it. YOU GOT KNOCKED THE FUCK OUT BY AMY SCHUMER! I once was sucked into this sport, but it’s not so – it’s too fast and violent unlike boxing to last. While seeing Holly & Ronda’s rematch will be really cool, […]
President Obama welcomed our glorious world champion’s to the White House this morning! “This team taught all America’s children that playing like a girl means you’re a badass,” Obama said. “This victory was about more than soccer. It was about dominance, and skill, and inspiring our whole country. “The’ve inspired millions of girls to dream […]
“Ah! What a great day to step out onto an over-irrigated golf course and play a game that wastes vast acres of usable and farm-able land.” -Marky, Arrested Development
Truly a tragedy. Our American woman deserved the Grand Slam, holding them all in the same year, but instead she’ll settle for 3 of the 4 in a remarkable 2015 campaign. I mean WTF? Is it that weird religion she belongs to, suppressing her emotions ’til they blow on the big stage? She looked so uncharacteristically rattled against Venus, […]
The single greatest thing in the history of mankind?
Venus pushed her talented younger sister to the emotional limit tonight in front of a big quarterfinal crowd. Thank you, girls, for giving us so many shows over the last couple decades. It’s honestly mind blowing that they’re still at it. Congratulations to Serena on her quest for the ultimate Grand Slam – I imagine […]
