    11 Sports Reporters Who Dated Athletes

    In the world of journalism, covering sports isn’t as important as covering wars, elections, natural disasters, or celebrity meltdowns.

    Goals have not been in short supply at the 2014 FIFA World Cup. So far 167 of them have been scored, and there are still two games left to play. That’s just four shy of the all-time record set back in 1998. However, Brazil 2014 won’t just be remembered for the quantity of goals scored. […]

    The 11 Biggest Blowouts in World Cup History
