Norway's Brute Force Past Meets Soccer's Future

Two decades ago Norway were a soccer power, finishing second at the 1991 World Cup and winning it all in 1995. But recent years have seen a tactically naïve Norway surpassed, or at least equaled, by nations that got a later jump on women’s soccer, like France, England, and Spain. While they should have no trouble… » 6/03/15 4:33pm 26 minutes ago

Germany Are A Steamroller, And They Expect To Win It All

Germany have historically been one of the best teams in women’s soccer, and they go into the 2015 World Cup like they go into every tournament: with the expectation of winning. They won the World Cup in 2003 and 2007, finished runner-up in 1995, and have won every Women’s Euro since 1995. They went 10-0 in World Cup… » 6/03/15 3:35pm Today 3:35pm

A Potent Texan IPA That Doesn't Waste A Drop Of Water

Houston flooded last week, which is both tragic and surprising: The tragedy is self-evident, and the surprise (to me at least) is that Houston is a flooding sort of place.

Cam Newton's Contract Is A Big Deal

You’re a smart enough football fan to know to ignore the initial numbers announced with any new contract, especially for QBs. The NFL’s creative accounting oftens lead to deals that barely resemble the press release. Colin Kaepernick’s “record” megadeal makes him extremely disposable.

The Entourage Movie Is The Hate-Watching Event Of The Summer

I’m gonna forego all ceremony and just tell you the best part of the Entourage movie, which is Ronda Rousey’s reading of the line, “I think somebody’s fuckin’ in there.” I will be purchasing this film on Blu-Ray six months hence in hopes of viewing outtakes from this scene. I need variations. “I think somebody’s » 6/03/15 11:40am Today 11:40am

Finally, A Netherlands Women's Team That Lives Up To The Name

One of the most enjoyable things about international soccer is the way you can notice various stylistic through-lines.
