    James Rodriguez Scores Two Stunners vs. Real Betis (Videos)

    Real Madrid made easy work of Real Betis during Saturday’s La Liga match-up, beating the Seville-based club by a convincing 5-0 margin. Heck, on James Rodriguez golazos alone, Real Madrid still had the upper hand, 2-0. The first of James’ two golazos came on a free kick from the edge of the box in the […]

    Neymar Wins $20,000 in Online Poker Thanks to Royal Flush (Pic)

    If you play poker and you’ve ever been dealt a royal flush, chances are it did not win you $20,000. That’s how much it won Neymar, though. This week, just days after he hosted his very own charity poker tournament at the European Poker Tour in Barcelona, the 23-year-old Brazilian soccer superstar was playing poker […]

    Lionel Messi Scores Two Free Kicks During Wild UEFA Super Cup (Videos)

    Tuesday’s UEFA Super Cup Final between Champions League winners Barcelona and Europa League champs Sevilla was quite the crazy affair, which saw Sevilla come back from down 4-1 in the second half, only to lose 5-4 in extra time.  But even before all of that madness, there was three free-kick goals in the first 15 minutes […]

    Soccer Player Gets Butt Sprayed With Magic Spray (Video)

    For the past decade or so, we’ve seen soccer trainers run out onto the field and hit injured players (or players pretending to be injured) with some sort of spray that I guess is very cold and numbs whatever’s ailing on their body. It’s very strange, but that magic spray also seems like a very soccer […]

    Soccer Fans Brawl on Street Before New York Derby (Video)

    You’d think the New York Derby between the MLS’s New York Red Bulls and New York City FC wouldn’t be a very heated rivalry, seeing as how a) the NYCFC franchise is less than a year old, and thus, probably hasn’t had enough time to build up a rivalry filled with hatred, and b) this […]

    Saint-Etienne’s Nolan Roux Kicks Ball at Ballboy’s Face (Video)

    I’m not sure if Saint-Etienne’s Nolan Roux was still trying to avoid conceding a corner kick, or if he was just frustrated by the fact that he had failed to keep the ball in play.  Either way, the result was not a pleasant one for this ball boy who was working the sideline of Thursday’s Europa League […]

    Cristiano Ronaldo Bought a Greek Island for His Agent

    As you may know, or you have been pretending to know during cocktail parties, Greece is in a bit of a financial bind with some of its European neighbors. In short, the country has borrowed a lot of money a couple times, and requires even more cash to stay functional and operational. In an effort […]

    Cristiano Ronaldo on FIFA: ‘I Don’t Give a F*ck’ (Video)

    Cristiano Ronaldo has fame, fortune, and all the women one man could possibly ask for.  Do you think he actually gives a f*ck about FIFA’s latest corruption scandal? He does not. Just listen to what he had to say when asked about FIFA and the 2022 World Cup in Qatar: In case you missed that, […]

    Luis Suarez Reminds a Fan That He’s Not the Best, Messi Is (Video)

    While signing some autographs for fans prior to Barcelona’s friendly against the LA Galaxy, a young fan tells Luis Suarez that he’s the best. Suarez smiles, then insists that he’s not the best. He then asks the fan if he knows who the best REALLY is. The fan then replies, matter-of-factly, “Messi.” Suarez smiles some […]

    Colombian Soccer Player Celebrates Goal by Proposing to Girlfriend (Video)

    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. However, Martin Arzuaga, a Colombian soccer player, may have found a way. After tallying up a goal, he took a decidedly more romantic tact with his celebration and proposed to his girlfriend.  […]
