    Picture Of The Day: Special Goal For A Special Boy

    “Derp, derp, derp, I scored another one!” Sure, Gonzalo Higuain may look like he is playing soccer in the Special Olympics here, but the only thing special about this pic is the goal that the Argentinian striker would score after dancing around Mexican goalkeeper Oscar Perez.  Equally special was the work of the cameraman during […]

    Luis Suarez’s “Leap Of Faith” Goal Celebration (Video)

    When it comes to goal celebrations at the FIFA World Cup in South Africa, this weekend was not a friendly one for cameramen.  While most have been talking about Gabriel Heinze’s reaction to a rather painful close-up following Argentina’s second goal during Sunday’s round of 16 match against Mexico, Luis Suarez’s “leap of faith” celebration […]

  • This Has To Be The Sexiest Soccer Game Ever!

    This Has To Be The Sexiest Soccer Game Ever!

    Ten scantily clad bombshells, one muddy pitch, and one soccer ball.  Those were all the ingredients required to create what should be considered one of the most entertaining soccer matches ever! It is not the skill that makes this battle between blondes and brunettes great, unless of course you consider looking that good to be […]

  • Argentina’s Gabriel Heinze Slaps Cameraman (GIF)

    Argentina’s Gabriel Heinze Slaps Cameraman (GIF)

    Professional athletes are understandably annoyed by intrusive cameramen and reporters and it doesn’t get much more intrusive than being smacked in the face with a camera. Like Dennis Rodman before him, Argentina’s Gabrel Heinze attacked a cameraman, but as you can see it was warranted this time. Luckily Argentina won and can go on to […]

    Picture Of The Day – Patriotism

    Want to know what it takes to be a true patriot? Find a “Where’s Waldo?” body suit, one that covers you entirely like the Green Man costume from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, (poke some holes in it so you can see, but screw breathing). To top it all off, drape an enormous American flag […]

  • England Got Trolled

    England Got Trolled

    FIFA: Players, coaches and referees all make mistakes. It’s part of the game. It’s what I would call the “first match”. What you see after the fact on video simply doesn’t come into it; that’s the “second match”, if you like. Video evidence is useful for disciplinary sanctions, but that’s all. As we’ve always emphasised […]

    What’s The Score Officer?

    With many of the world’s leading politicians set to touch down in Toronto this week for the G20 Summit, police in the downtown area were out on their horses looking for any suspicious activity.  But that wasn’t all they were looking out for.  Not even the task of maintaining a safe and secure area for […]

    I think that’s a Nokia…

    Meet Larissa Riquelme, Paraguay’s hottest fan.  Riquelme might be best known for using her bosom as a cell phone case during a Paraguay/Italy World Cup game, but she’s also a 25-year-old model in Paraguay. She was a celebrity before, but her status shot up due to the cell phone photos that became viral hits. She […]

    Picture Of The Day: They’ll Do Anything To Stop Lionel Messi

    How do you slow down Lionel Messi?  Nigeria and South Korea tried just about everything in their power, from vicious slide tackles, to grabbing his jersey, but their efforts were largely unsuccessful as the man they call “The Flea” has terrorized defenses through the opening round of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. However, on Tuesday […]

    Not So Fast ESPN! USA Has Some Final-Minute Magic

    For all of those Americans who have described soccer as a boring, slow, and uneventful sport, Wednesday, June 23, 2010 may forever be known as the day that changed their minds. Heading into today’s action, the USA found itself tied at two points apiece with England in Group C, two points behind leaders Slovenia, and […]

    Picture Of The Day – She Also Has Good Ball Handling Skills

    Cristiano Ronaldo may have recently ended his two-year soccer goal scoring drought, but there is no way he’s in a slump with the ladies, right? How could he possibly be in a lady-scoring drought when they literally throw their looseness his way every day and night? Maybe he made this ball handler prove her sign’s […]
