Thank goodness no one was hurt, but this morning the Metrodome, home of the Minnesota Vikings, had its roof cave in from the 17-inches of snow that were on it. (watch closely, and around the 22 second mark you can see someone driving a cart on the far sideline to get out of there as… read more

It’s a sad day for the Rebellion. Ole Miss has picked its new mascot, and it’s not Admiral Ackbar. In case you’ve forgotten, back in Feb., some students at Ole Miss were lobbying to get the Star Wars character Admiral Ackbar named as the new mascot for the school when the confederate general had been… read more

It’s hard to believe, but it’s over. After 30 days and 64 games, World Cup 2010 has come to a close in South Africa.  Spain took home the trophy after a 1 to 0 victory over the Netherlands in overtime.  It was a tense game, but it sadly proved what I thought of Spain through… read more

Well, someone pinch me, because someone finally woke FIFA up the need for technology to be used in reffing games. The other day I wrote about how FIFA, the governing body of world football (soccer), needed to stop playing around and get serious about using technology as an aid in reffing games.  After the disastrous judging of… read more

FIFA needs to enter the late 20th century. No, that wasn’t a typo, FIFA, the ruling body for football (soccer) is going to walk away with egg all over its face after what happened on Sunday at the World Cup. Forget the vuvazelas annoying the heck out of everyone, it is the staunch stance against… read more

The World Cup Group Stage is over, and now it’s on to the serious stuff … the Group of 16. I wanted to get this out before the first game so I could at least look like I know what I’m talking about. With the 2006 final two (Italy and France) already out of the… read more

France is out of the World Cup, and to that, I say good riddance. I still have not forgotten that France got into this World Cup off of a handball last year against Ireland, eliminating that country’s hopes of getting into the tournament. The team even admitted the handball after the game, but by then… read more

Could someone explain to me what is happening with the “big gun” nations in the World Cup? I am far from an expert on football, but it feels like this World Cup is going to end up being a battle of the small nations. The traditional big gun nations (such as Spain, Italy etc) are… read more

It’s hard to believe, but we are already a week into the 2010 World Cup, but it’s a week a lot of teams will never forget. Up until the beginning of the tournament, everyone was walking around saying Spain had this cup in the bag.  Apparently Switzerland had very different ideas about this and beat… read more

Well, it was a nice dream while it lasted. Yesterday I reported that it looked like a ban was being considered by South Africa’s World Cup organising chief Danny Jordaan of the Vuvuzela, better known as the “World Cup Noisemakers”.  They have been annoying the players, fans, television stations and more, and Mr. Jordaan was… read more

Football fans of the world rejoice!  There is a possible ban coming on the Vuvuzelas! The Vuvuzela, better known as the “World Cup Noisemakers”, are possibly going to be banned from the stadiums.  According to a report from the BBC, South Africa’s World Cup organising chief Danny Jordaan is looking into the situation.  “We’ve had… read more

No folks, the World Cup games are not being attacked by swarms of locusts … those are vuvuzelas. If you’ve tuned into any of the World Cup 2010 games thus far, you have heard a droning sound that makes you think a swarm of locusts is attacking.  Apparently vuvuzelas are a common item at South… read more
