    Stat Line Of The Night — 6/28/12 — Mario Balotelli

    Mario Balotelli is always capable of making an impact on the match every time he steps on the pitch.  The only question is whether that impact is going to be one that hurts or helps his team.  During yesterday’s Euro 2012 semifinal match against Germany, the Italian striker had a large impact on the game, […]

    Later on today, Italy will square off against Germany in the second semi-final match at the 2012 UEFA European Football Championships.  Many probably figured the Germans (who entered the tournament as favorites) and the Italians (whose four World Cup titles rank second only to Brazil’s five) would make it to this point in the tournament, […]

    Mesut Özil is one of the best soccer players in the world right now, making Germany one of the favorites to win the 2012 Euro. But you know, even the best players in the world have bad days every now and then. And as we witnessed yesterday, Özil certainly isn’t an exception to this rule. […]

    With the 2012 European Championships only 100 days away, France’s National Soccer team entered today’s friendly against Germany looking to build some momentum as the tournament approaches.  They have done a good job through the opening half, as they have held the German’s potent offensive attack in check while getting on the scoreboard themselves in […]

    With their attention almost always on the fans in the stands, and not on the action taking place on the field of play, it is hard to believe that security guards at professional sporting events don’t get hit in the face with errant balls more often.  But that is not to say that the odd […]

    How long does it take a child to drink a beer at a soccer game?  No one knows the exact answer to that question, but after watching the following clip of a youngster enjoying a beer during Sunday’s Bundesliga match between FC Augsburg and FC Schalke, we are led to believe that the answer lies […]

    It was a busy day of American football yesterday, and while we were provided with several highlight reel plays on the gridiron, the greatest play in the world of sports on Sunday came via the European brand of football. It took place in Germeny during a game between Bayer Leverkusen and Wolfsburg.  With the game […]

    Picture Of The Day: I Think We’re Gonna Need More Players

    Table football, or fussball, as it is often referred to, usually requires either two or four players, except when you are playing in Berlin. You could probably get away with playing a one-on-one or two-on-two game on this giant fussball table, but chances are you will end up doing more running in a 10 minute […]

    If you are looking to shoot some hoops while visiting Germany, you may have a difficult time finding a decent court, assuming most of the ones in the country are designed like this one, which can be found at the Occupational School Center in Munich.  If this court was made to give people somewhere to […]

    In America, sports teams often celebrate victories by drenching the head coach with a traditional Gatorade shower.  In Germany, they do things a little differently. Borussia Dortmund won their seventh Bundesliga title this year and during a press conference following their final game of the season this past weekend, the club’s players gave their coaches […]

    Matias Concha’s Leg Snapped Like A Twig (Video)

    Second Division German Soccer League highlights typically don’t make the headlines unless they involve images of a leg being snapped in half, much like Matias Concha’s did last night during a match against Union Berlin. In a race to chase down a loose ball, the Bochum defender slid while his counterpart, Berlin’s Macchambes Younga-Mouhani, opted […]
