The Confederations Cup is over: for a rather meaningless cup, there was some fantastic football in both the final (Brazil v. Argentina) and the third place game (Germany v. Mexico). If you haven't seen either game yet, the third place game is on Fox Soccer Channel at 8pm et, and the final is on at 11pm et. (More inside - I don't want to spoil it for anyone.)

Champions League draw.: This morning, the draw was made for the final 16 teams, and there are some really interesting first-round matchups - Chelsea v Barcelona, Juventus v Real Madrid, AC Milan v Manchester United, Arsenal v Bayern Munich - any one of these could have been the final. Are we destined for a final like last year with two smaller teams, or will some giants make it through to the end?

English football's Division One to be renamed "The Championship",: with Division Two and Division Three becoming League One and League Two. Apparently, they're changing the name to change people's perceptions of the league. If it's "The Championship", it's gotta be good, right? Huh? What's next, "The Lordship"? "The Fellowship"?
