    2018 NBA "Off"Season-Because It's Always On

    Not really thrilled with the Cavs taking a point guard that doesn’t really pass the ball that well and doesn’t really shoot the ball that well, but hey, at least we aren’t Sacramento and Atlanta.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Oh, hey. Croatia have the best central midfield pairing in the world, and that could take them a long way in this tournament. Things work out really well for them, too, assuming they top the group — their half of the bracket could be really weak. Fun times for the Vatreni.
  3. Might actually be the first time I can remember that Notre Dame plays at home in primetime and it'll actually be the biggest game going on. Feels like most weeks when NBC puts ND into the 7:30 time slot, it's overshadowed by the ABC and/or FOX games, when playing at the traditional 3:30 kickoff would've made it the clear biggest game. Related: Can't wait to see how ESPN justifies taking GameDay to the parking lot at one of the neutral site games over going to South Bend.

    2018 FIFA World Cup Kits

    Minor re-name to this thread, to differentiate it from the Sports in General thread, which is for discussion about the tournament itself.

    If only this wasn’t probably the worst Croatia kit in a while… Croatia’s in a great spot, given a comfortable win paired with an Argentina draw. Four points the rest of the way should lock up the top spot in the group and a path to the quarters that avoids France. It’ll be interesting the narrative around them, because they’re genuinely one of the most talented teams at this tournament — just glad we’ve got an actual manager in charge this year.

    At least we get the lovely red-on-green colors out of the Morocco kit, but yeah, it's not great.

    USA-Mexico-Canada Joint Bid for 2026 World Cup

    Yeah, I mean, it's hard to say what the qualifying setup would be, but it's hard for me to see the United States not qualifying for one of six slots in 2026. If you assume that the final round of CONCACAF qualifying will be split into two groups (I don't think they can really roll with a CONMEBOL-style qualifying setup when CONCACAF still has earlier qualifying rounds they have to play out), and assume that the US is likely to return to one of the two highest-rated teams in CONCACAF when the 2026 qualifying draw occurs, they likely wouldn't have to play Mexico anyway. A group like this would be among the "worst case" of solutions: United States, Costa Rica, Honduras, Jamaica, Cuba, Haiti It's just hard to see the US dropping the required points at home in that type of group to not finish top three.

    The Saudi kit kinda sucks, but I really like that Russian kit. Not sure whether I'd like it more or less with a second blue stripe on the home shirt to match the socks, but I really do like that design.

    2018 FIFA World Cup Kits

    I'm guessing that Mexico wearing its change kit against South Korea stems from the sock clash -- since Mexico would've had to change to white socks to avoid a clash with Korea's red, they probably just opted to wear and show off the full change kit. With Sweden and Germany the other two teams in the group (no clashes there), this gives Mexico the opportunity to wear the change kit without it being a random introduction.

    USA-Mexico-Canada Joint Bid for 2026 World Cup

    Cincinnati is also a possibility and I'll be really disappointed when it isn't picked.

    USA-Mexico-Canada Joint Bid for 2026 World Cup

    Was Chicago being cut known before today? Cincinnati's left as the only potential host site in the Great Lakes, so I'd imagine they'll be hosting games.

    Yeah, but Roberto Martinez is Belgium's manager, so they'll get to a key game and then concede five goals.

    Pursuant to @Crabcake47's question in the Ask a Moderator forum, the World Cup's big enough to get its own topic.
