    9 Things You Might Not Have Known About The 2014 World Cup

    Well, it’s that time again. Every four years, you either get on the soccer bandwagon, or stand gracefully to the side for the next month. Yup. The World Cup is back and ready to kick off in the South American soccer bastion of Brazil. We’re all a little excited, because any event that happens once […]

    Watch This Incredible Act of Fair Play From Werder Bremen’s Aaron Hunt (Video)

    During soccer matches, we often witness players taking dives before begging the officials to penalize the other team.  What we rarely see is a player take a dive before begging the official not to penalize the other team, but that’s exactly what unfolded during Saturday’s Bundesliga match between Nurnberg and Werder Bremen, as Bremen’s Aaron Hart […]

    Streaker Interrupts Germany-Ecuador Friendly in Boca Raton (Video)

    Nothing livens up a boring, pointless soccer game like a streaker. Am I right? Of course, the international friendly between Germany and Ecuador in Boca Raton, Florida, wasn’t your typical boring soccer game. There were actually a lot of goals scored. Germany had netted four—two each by Lukas Podolski and Lars Bender—by the 25 minute […]

    Here’s The Worst Olympic Dive You Will Ever See (GIF)

    If this were a “who can make the biggest splash” competition, Stephan Feck of Germany would have easily earned a perfect score.  Unfortunately for him, it wasn’t a “biggest splash” competition.  It was a 3-meter springboard diving event at the 2012 London Olympics, and it earned him a last place finish in the competition and […]

    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 […]

    Security Guard Takes A Soccer Ball To The Face (Video)

    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 […]
