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...

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...

Manchester United’s Winter Moves Good, Not Exciting

“Darren Fletcher vs Everton (cropped)” by Gordon Flood. Licensed under CC BY 2.0. It goes without saying that Manchester United’s winter moves were not exciting. Anderson and Fletcher departures, or Valdés’ arrival being the biggest news. That said, getting Anderson off the books is great, and if Fletcher isn’t going to return to his former level, then that’s a good move too. I go...

Joe Montana is still the greatest for me.

“Joe Montana 2013 (cropped)” by Sean L. Dickinson. Licensed under CC BY 2.0. After last night, there is only one great argument against Brady being the greatest QB ever, though there are a few other arguments. If you take stats to be your main barometer, there is no question Brady is better than Montana. Now, they are tied on Super Bowls (and Super Bowl...

February 2015 FIFA 14 Check In

 “Arturo Vidal (Juventus)” by Football.ua. Licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0. It’s not been as long between posts this time, so there is not as much change. There are still some changes though. I lost so much money selling Vidal. I got him when I thought an 86 would be good enough…and when the market hadn’t diverged quite as much as it has. Things go...
