FCSS: Prelude to March Madness

Basketball season regular season ends on Sunday.  What has surprised you about the season? Dad:  Small things like UK going undefeated all 30 games so far. Some teams not doing as well as predicted. Kentucky – undefeated. Have you seen either Virginia, Duke, or Wisconsin play? Those seem to be the favorites to have a chance to beat Kentucky. Dad:  Virigina would give Kentucky...

March 2015 FIFA 14 Check In

“Rafael van der Vaart 2014” by Kathi Rudminat. Licensed under CC BY 2.0. This may be my last FIFA 14 article. What is the point of building a better squad if you aren’t able to move up the divisions? I’m currently in division 3 of against the computer and division 9 against humans. I held in division 3 my first go. I think I...

February 2015 Malmö FF Additions and Subtractions

“Tobias Sana 2012-10-10“. Licensed under CC BY 2.0. The Swedish transfer window doesn’t close until March 31, so there could still be tons of changes. In fact, I’m so unimpressed with the additions so far that I’m not doing predictions. Despite my apathetic mood toward the additions, the reality is that the transfer dealings are not that different than the last couple of years....

Sports in Space: An Interlude in the Sports on Mars Series

“Astronaut-EVA” by NASA. Licensed under Public Domain via Wikimedia Commons. My first article about sports in space contained a section titled “Could these games be played somewhere in between?” This produced an off-site challenge, which I wanted to address. First, the whole series suffers somewhat from being ambiguous in time, but we’re certainly talking a long way off. In my head I’m targeting life...

Sports on Mars: Part 1 – Non-Travel Logistics

“Mars Hubble” by NASA and The Hubble Heritage Team (STScI/AURA). Licensed under Public Domain via Wikimedia Commons. This is not the place for a debate on space (one of my friends has a new project where that would be more appropriate), so let’s start with the assumption that Mars is the most likely place for a future human colony. In this first article I...

2015 NBA Predictions

EASTERN CONFERENCE Atlanta Hawks Cleveland Cavaliers Chicago Bulls Toronto Raptors (as division winner) Washington Wizards Milwaukee Bucks Miami Heat Brooklyn Nets I hope I’m wrong about the Hornets, but I’ve been a fan of Carolina sports too long to expect much from anything other than college teams. Sure, the...

West Ham’s Winter Transfer Report

“Mauro Zarate at Auronzo” by Mario Rossi. Licensed under Public Domain via Wikimedia Commons.   Somehow, it is not Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs, or City, but rather West Ham that brings the most traffic to the site (after LFC and MUFC). Give the people what they want, I say. IN: Doneil Henry Henry seems like a decent enough pickup. The question on these undisclosed transfers...

Liverpool’s Winter Transfers Barely Worth an Article

“Oussama Assaidi 2011” by [2] – Flickr: [1]. Licensed under CC BY 2.0 via Wikimedia Commons. If you thought Manchester United’s winter transfer dealings were a snoozefest, wait until you see Liverpool’s. Assaidi out. Suso out. Ojo loaned out. That’s it. Assaidi does look like a nice piece of business at £4.7 million, especially since LFC bought him for £2.4 million. Suso had been...
