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
- SJ Sharks
- 49ers
- NY Giants

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

These Browns are more disappointing under Freddie Kitchens than with Hue Jackson's failed run: The team is 2-6 after losing to a depleted Broncos team after preseason forecasts that had them making a playoff run. And then Browns' Whitehead released after 'unacceptable' Twitter rant.

Transfer deadline day signings take Premier League spending to £1.41bn: Overall a pretty quiet window where the biggest rumored deals failed to materialize. Pogba to Real Madrid/Juventus, Erikson to Real Madrid, Gareth Bale to ManUtd/Liverpool/China, nope nope nope. Leroy Sane to Bayern Munich? Oops. American wunderkind Christian Pulisic finally makes his debut Sunday.

Jill Ellis to Step Down as U.S. Women’s National Team Head Coach: Ellis will depart as the first coach in history to win two Women’s World Cups (Italy’s Vittorio Pozzo did it over 80 years ago on the Men's side) after the team's five match Victory Tour this fall. Ellis has an overall record of 102-7-18, and won 13 World Cup matches, drew once and never lost with the USWNT.

SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle

ESPN wants to steal Tony Romo away from CBS by offering him an "8 figure annual offer" to do Monday Night Football. Really? Will Romo bring back the magic that seemingly migrated to NBC's SNF? But wait, maybe he'll stay at CBS since they have a right to match any offer.

Seahawks Beat Eagles After Carson Wentz Leaves with Concussion

Clowney's helmet to helmet contact was so "incidental" it knocked the Eagles out of the playoffs!

No offense Howard, but... more recently the politically correct CE is not politically correct but common usage by non-Christians for a very long time.

FIFA President Wants to Play Women's World Cup Every 2 Years

The NWSL stops play during the World Cup but in Europe many women's leagues play the same late Summer through Spring schedule as the men. So the most likely disruption there would be the Women's Euro tournament and I've not seen reaction from the leaders there (except for the French, of course...).

NoMich, you think those changes will come to pass? And if they do, what chance do you think that the tournament could evolve to include top clubs from other leagues (ie, a champions league type competition) to get more of those international dollars?

Why Landon Donovan made Carrie Taylor his first assistant, and what it could mean for women coaching men's soccer . Though I look forward to the day when a woman coaching men is as newsworthy as a man coaching women.
