Somewhere Jonathan Bornstein Is Crying Uncontrollably

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

Bob Bradley was relieved of his duties as U.S. national team coach Thursday. And it's not a day too soon. Don't get me wrong. I appreciate everything Bradley accomplished during his tenure, including beating world No. 1 Spain at the Confederations Cup and winning a World Cup group with England in ...

Candice Swanepoel Bikini Picture Brings the Links

Friday, December 11th, 2009

Apparently Candice Swanepoel has never slept with Tiger Woods either. So that's two women that we know about. A Tiger Woods-related Hitler video? You know I'm linking that - Outside the Boxscore No more lime-green Seahawks jerseys - No Guts, No Glory Brian Kelly is your new coach at Notre Dame - South ...

TheBaker’s Dozen: Out Of Retirement

Sunday, October 11th, 2009

1. Mike Tyson on “Oprah” Monday. Finally, my mom, sister and I will watch the same show for the first time since “Murder, She Wrote.” What can I say? We were suckers for Angela Lansbury and her hour-long capers. 2. Apparently broken ribs are good for your QB rating. Matt Hasselbeck ...

TheBaker’s Dozen: Favre, Swine Flu And Sonya Blade

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

1. I hate Brett Favre. I used to have an adversarial respect for him, being a Bears fan and all, but now this is just getting ridiculous. Talk about an attention whore. Oh, and Jay Glazer just bodyslammed the ESPN weasel trio of Schefter-Mortensen-Clayton at the same time, by not ...

Weekend Link Dump! Brought To You By Hexing Tiger Woods

Friday, August 14th, 2009

And yes, before you ask, this is a blatant attempt to create a little drama at Hazeltine this weekend because it sure as hell looks like Tiger is gonna run away with this thing. I don't necessarily want him to lose; I just want something to watch on Saturday and ...

Join Or Die: U.S.-Mexico Live Blog!

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

Game time is fast approaching (4 p.m. EST, Telemundo/mun2), and I'm getting amped. Even though the game isn't on the ESPN family of networks, the Worldwide Leader is actually doing a good job of hyping the game and breaking it down. Bob Ley and Alexi Lalas are actually in Mexico City ...

At Least He Didn’t Spike Himself

Sunday, July 26th, 2009

I know you all were watching Galaxy/Wizards last night, big-ass MLS fans that you are. But just in case you weren't watching ESPN's MLS game of the week, here's what you (and I, because I left five minutes before it happened) missed: The Spanish announcing makes it even better. Hopefully Galaxy ...

Just Like They Drew It Up

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

Clint Dempsey said it best when reflecting on the U.S. Soccer team's chances of reaching the semifinals of the Confederations Cup: "The odds were slim." Excellent analysis "Deuce," now get to practicing. Hard. The stars and stripes pulled off what can only be described as a full-fledged miracle Sunday afternoon. They needed ...
