    Every Goal Celebration From FIFA 14 in One Cool Video (Video)

    Earlier in the week, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake provided us with a look at “The Evolution of the End Zone Dance,” but it should be noted that celebratory dances have evolved in other sports as well over the years.  Soccer would have to be a prime example of this, as goal celebrations have come […]

    This Madrid Cop Has No Idea Who Gareth Bale Is (Video)

    Not everyone in Spain’s capital city is a huge Real Madrid fan. Some are Athlético Madrid fans. And apparently there’s at least one dude who, crazy as it seems, doesn’t follow the beautiful game at all. How do we know this? Because the guy had no idea who Gareth Bale is. Now, I realize that you may not know who […]

    Paraguayan Soccer Player Kicks Referee in the Face (Video)

    What is a soccer player to do when the referee has just ejected three of his teammates from the game? Well, in the case of one Paraguayan guy recently, the answer was quite simple: you kick the referee in the face. During a game between Paraguayan clubs Coronel Romero and Porvenir recently, a vicious and […]

    Down in Australia there’s a pretty cool non-profit organization called Football United that’s trying to use people’s love of “the beautiful game”—i.e., soccer—to raise money for charities benefitting refugees and underprivileged kids. What’s their tactic? Well, Football United has created a kind of pledge drive called “1 Million Keeps Ups.”  The idea is that people […]

    Arsenal’s 2013-14 Premier League campaign got off to an awfully rough start on Saturday, as they were defeated by Aston Villa at home, by a score of 3-1.  Thankfully, things improved dramatically for them on Wednesday when they defeated Fenerbahçe, 3-0, in the first leg of their Champions League qualifier. However, there was one member […]

    The 2013-14 Premier League season kicked off over the weekend, and it couldn’t have gone any worse for Arsenal. Not only did they lose their match at home to Aston Villa by a score of 3-1, but Gunners defender Laurent Koscielny was issued a red card, while fellow Frenchman Bacary Sagna was the victim of […]

    The 40 Jerseys of the 2013/14 English Premier League Season

    Here in North America, when it comes to sports jerseys, we like continuity. We may tear down our stadiums every 20 years, but the idea of the Yankees or Packers or Celtics or Red Wings changing uniforms every single season just sounds ridiculous. This is not the case in England. There, it’s pretty much expected […]

    Brazilian Soccer Referee Obliterates Player (Video)

    This weekend the NFL preseason got underway, giving us our first taste of hard-hitting gridiron action in six whole months. The great irony, however, is that the biggest “football” hit of the weekend didn’t occur on said gridiron. It occurred on a “pitch” in Brazil, and it was delivered—believe it or not—by a referee. That’s […]
