    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    Poor man's Cavani, Morata, hundreds of other players. That's glib, but the point is striker is a hard position. And getting into good position and pressing are terrific skills for the international game.

    Pay That Mendes His Money: The Summer 2021 Transfer Thread

    The big question re the current philosophy at WHL depends on just how much authority and confidence Levy/ENIC have in Paratici. If Paratici has the green light to do a full rebuild, I'd imagine he'd be in favor of selling Kane. Alternatively, if he thinks he needs to finish top 4 THIS season...

    Spurs 21/22: The Spirit has landed

    Hi, I'm Kyle Schwarber and I hit bombs!

    Pretty good mix of locations, although it seems he likes em high. Tickles to see one of those bombs come off Arroyo in a Cincy shirt.

    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    To be clear, I also thought Zardes played very well in the tourney and I'm not sure about his club form, but he's been consistently good for the USMNT in the matches I've seen--at least when the whole team hasn't been a shitshow. His physical ability and fitness are beyond question and likely a...

    Spurs 21/22: The Spirit has landed

    Romero seems mostly done? $45-50M? Lotta money, but that's a big play for fairly well-established high quality CB. Doesn't bode well for Kane's chances of staying...

    Footy broadcasting - What do we have?

    That's a good sign for Ray Hudson fans. For the haters...don't fill your pants if he moves to ESPN!

    2021 Gold Cup: CONCACAF AF

    What a fookin win. Very happy for these players. Exciting that there's some real depth for the USMNT. The pool is getting bigger!!

    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    I don't watch the USMNT nearly as much as most people in 'Gazza, but is Zardes really the best option at CF?

    Bruins Offseason Thread

    +1. Having that killer first line is a luxury when you have some threat on 2/3 lines, but now it's about putting wings around Coyle who can produce like a 2nd line. Smith is a fine third banana for Bergy-Marshy. The FO has shown that they like to make deals at the deadline, so now it's wait and...

    Krejci heading back to Czech Republic

    Krejci will be one of a handful of names that will be forever associated with this extended run of Broons success of the past decade, along with Bergy, Marshy, and Big Z. 7th all time in games played for the B's with 962 (behind Bergy and Big Z). I won't ever forget him. Seeing those highlights...

    Bruins sign Tomas Nosek

    QFT. The most recent playoffs showed that having a viable 4th line is key. That viability can come from being an all-around good unit, but it seems to me the other way to build a 4th line is to pick a tool and load up on it--size, speed, defense, etc. 4th line being heavy is clearly helpful come...

    Spurs 21/22: The Spirit has landed

    He looks like he has a weak upper body in that picture. That's only remarkable because the dude has a jacked lower body and is obviously super lean. Even a little muscle would show.

    Spurs 21/22: The Spirit has landed

    My impression is that the coverage of Spurs' managerial search and potentially leaks obscure how close/far Conte was. IOW, I'm not so sure it was that close before getting called off. And even if it was close, that doesn't do away with the possibility that Conte was just trying to leverage Spurs...

    Realignment 2021: UT, OU to SEC? KU to B1G? Baylor to CUSA?

    It's about time the Ozarks region got their own conference. They can take Mizzou back to while they're at it!

    Realignment 2021: UT, OU to SEC? KU to B1G? Baylor to CUSA?

    If there was pro-rel (I'm not letting the dream go damnit!), here's how the divisions would work out using the past 5 seasons of W-L for initial placement: The Top Tier of College Football Brought to you by Some Annoying-ass Sponsor: 1. Bama 2. Clemson 3. OSU 4. OU App St* 5. UGA Boise St.*...

    Realignment 2021: UT, OU to SEC? KU to B1G? Baylor to CUSA?

    The answer (in search of a problem) as always, is promotion-relegation. A 4-tier structure of 16 teams with the top 3 and bottom 3 from divisions 2-4 and only the bottom 3 from division 1 competing for pro-rel would be fantastic. Probably means we're going back to a final 4 or final 2, but if...

    Realignment 2021: UT, OU to SEC? KU to B1G? Baylor to CUSA?

    One thing that won't change--Michigan will still suck.
