    Soccer Fans in Prague Get Pretty Worked Up Over the Prague Derby (Video)

    We’re pretty accustomed to seeing soccer fans brawl and riot before, during and after significant matches. And since few matches are as significant to fans as a derby match–i.e., a match between a heated intercity or regional rival—these matches often surpass all others in fan violence. We saw this last week in Newcastle, England, where […]

    Irina Shayk Refuses to Cut a Lionel Messi Jersey (Video)

    Since 2010, Russian model Irina Shayk has been dating soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, and because of that we’ll simply assume that she is now a big fan of CR8 and his Spanish club team, Real Madrid.  And that should probably make her a big hater of Lionel Messi and Barcelona—but not a big enough hater […]

    You might assume that a professional soccer player who plays on one of the biggest clubs in the English Premier League could get into pretty much any nightclub he wanted anywhere in the UK.

    While fans of Manchester City were busy making out after their team’s big victory over Chelsea in the FA Cup semis yesterday, fans of Newcastle United were busy punching police horses. Talk about a juxtaposition. What would bring a soccer fan to punch a horse? Well, actually, just about anything I guess. His team won, […]

    Bulgarian Coach Steals Referee’s Cards and Throws Them in Anger (Video)

    Every soccer coach out there has probably wanted to take the referee’s cards from his hands, rip them in half and toss them in disgust at one time or another.  The only difference between them and Botev Vratsa head coach Antoni Zdravkov is that they probably have never done such a thing, while the Bulgarian bench boss […]

    Former and Current Manchester United Players Play Soccer Blindfolded (Video)

    Everybody loves a great sports partnership in which two players have a mutual instinctive understanding of what the other is going to do. In basketball, the partnership of John Stockton and Karl Malone comes to mind. And in hockey, there was the partnership between Adam Oates and Brett Hull, or the partnership between Wayne Gretzky […]
