This Long Range Blast Will Be Côte d'Ivoire's One Good World Cup Memory

This Côte d’Ivoire team got hammered by Germany, gave up three goals to Thailand, only avoided a repeat beatdown at the hands Norway today on account of some sorry finishing, and will soon return home from their first World Cup thanks to their fourth-place group finish.

It’s tiresome to monitor ESPN blowhard and domestic violence apologist Stephen A. Smith’s daily acts of polluting the Worldwide Leader’s airwaves with his Cro-Magnon attitudes, but here we are.

Trinidad & Tobago Women's Soccer Team Gets Unlikely Help From Haiti

On Wednesday we wrote about the Trinidad & Tobago women's soccer team, which arrived in the U.S. for World Cup qualifying with just about $500 to its name. That wasn't nearly enough to cover the food, travel, and equipment needed for the next three weeks. But fans and colleagues have stepped up to help, perhaps none… »10/10/14 10:29am10/10/14 10:29am
