    There are few things in sports more exciting than when a loose animal gets on the field. Most recently, we saw a wayward dog not just infiltrate a soccer field, but actually take out a player, which is like the double rainbow of dogs on fields.

    I’m guessing for most Colombian players it’s tough to top the feeling of scoring a goal at the professional level in the soccer-crazy country.

    Today, during a FIFA press conference, it was announced that a presidential election would be held on February 26, 2016, in order to find a replacement for the resigning Sepp Blatter.

    The USWNT Got Their Obama Phone Call on Tuesday (Video)

    The best part of winning a championship in an American league or as an American national team is getting “the call” from the President. Well, that might not be true.
