    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Pulisic is already better than Donovan ever was. And he’s not even old enough to buy a beer. So we don’t have to wait long. Oh and.. ¡Vamos México!

    2018 FIFA World Cup Kits

    They ain’t white, but a very light shade of blue. Very classy clash kit, IMO. Especially when paired with white pants and light blue socks.

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

    As a Lakers fan, I can’t refute this. As much as I’d like to.

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

    I think you’re missing a key fact: Kawhi has one year left on his deal and thus Kawhi’s personal preference matters quite a bit. What team would trade the bank for a player, only for that player to leave in free agency the following summer? Does it matter that another team would be able to offer a better deal to the Spurs if Kawhi’s going to leave in Free Agency no matter what? It’s been a poorly kept secret that Kawhi wants to play for the Lakers. Having said that, I’d rather the Lakers wait for Kawhi next summer instead trading for him now and risk losing some of our young stars. Our young guns are one of the main reasons why Paul George wants to be here and why LeBron is even considering the Lakers.

    USA-Mexico-Canada Joint Bid for 2026 World Cup

    But CONCACAF will have 6 bids, right? Despite our piss poor 2018 WC qualifying cycle, we would still have qualified if this WC were a 48-team tournament. We were still one of the top 6 nations in CONCACAF (not that it says much considering how weak our confederation is). Acting like there’s a legitimate chance we’d fail to qualify for any 48-team WC going forward when our confederation has 6 bids is bit out there for me. Personally, I don’t have a problem with all three of us getting an automatic bid considering how many teams there will be from CONCACAF at the WC. And it’s not like México or the US would need an automatic bid to qualify for this WC. Both nations would qualify on their own without it.

    The little guy already has it for the 2022 World Cup though.

    The only way pro/rel would work here would be to have a closed system within the MLS itself. But even then, imagine trying to sell that idea to half of the MLS clubs that they should be demoted to a “second division” status in order to achieve pro/rel system. I’d imagine they’d put up a fight against it.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Their group is pretty bad though, aside from Uruguay (who shouldn’t drop a point to be honest). They could make it out. Egypt, Russia and Saudi Arabia are pretty meh teams. I don’t think they will, but you never know.

    2018 NBA Post Season

    Literally have no clue what JR was doing there at the end. He literally panicked. Never seen an experienced player do that before. Feel for LeBron though. This game was their best chance to steal a game on the road and to have his teammates just fall flat.. Tough. They should have won this game tonight. And is it just me, or did the Warriors really benefit from some home-cooking foul calls in the last few minutes? Regardless, this was a really entertaining game. Much better already than last year’s Finals. Hopefully every game is like this.

    2018 NBA Post Season

    Not in quite some time. I once had a meltdown like ozzy here, after the Lakers lost to the Mavs in 2011. But I stopped after a few hours, quickly realized how idiotic I was being, apologized and grew up. Never happened again, even though my teams have suffered far greater heartbreaks since then (2014, 2016 Cowboys and the USMNT falling to qualify for the WC). I was really young back then, and assuming ozzy is still kid, there's still time for him to mature. Maybe, or rather, hopefully, he'll look back and shudder at the immaturity he's displayed here as I have done with my past actions.

    I’ve never seen a player receive so many, “...yeah, but...” arguments as I have with LeBron. It’s kinda funny seeing the lengths people will go to attempt to diminish his greatness.

    He’s the best player I’ve ever seen. Anyone that doesn’t enjoy watching him doesn’t like basketball.

    North American Pro Soccer 2018

    Kinda disappointed with the draw for LAFC on Saturday, especially with all of the missed opportunities, but kinda hard to score when FC Dallas plays a 5-4-1 and 5-3-2 for most of the match. Honestly couldn't tell if I was watching FC Dallas or Honduras. Hate that kind of football. Essentially played for the draw once they tied it up. Oh well, at least the Carson Galaxy lost this weekend. Onto Minnesota.

    I’d agree with that. As much I want to hate the Celtics because they’re the Lakers biggest rival, they’re a really fun team to watch.

    What a lucky, flukey goal, but I’ll take it! LAFC was by far the better team in the last 30 minutes after a first half in which I thought Seattle was better. Let’s go. 15 points through our first 7 games. I know it’s early, but we’re showing that we’re a team to be taken seriously this season. One last thought: Dempsey looks hella old. Sad to see, especially to one of the all-time great American players.
