Sports Bio

Brazilian soccername: Binhosa

Fan of:
- Liverpool FC
- USC Trojans (class of '83, except I had no class while in attendance)
- Original SJ Earthquakes, RIP
- Barcelona FC
- Portland Timbers

Baseball seriously sucks, it's boring, they could shut down MLB tomorrow and I'd be happy especially since the channel that broadcasts the SF Giants games is a Fox affiliate and their games regularly screw up my viewing schedule.

I won the 2005 NFL Playoff Pool

Jaguars Hire Urban Meyer as Head Coach: Urban Meyer has become the sixth head coach of the storied Jacksonville Jaguars (horror story, mostly). Meyer won three National Championships in football, including two 70 miles down the road in Gainesville. He'll take over a team that has the first overall draft pick, lots of other picks and a great salary cap situation.

Ives Galarcep and Grant Wahl are my reading list though Ives is more MLS focused than Grant and both cover a wider range. Neither are totally free but have enough free content for me.

Coinbase commercial seemed incredibly dumb to me. Yeah, show a bouncing QR code with no explanation and expect me to load it up. Though tbh I wouldn't expect better from these people.
