USA Basketball as English League: Part 2 – NBA Premier Leauge

“NYC Montage 2014 4 – Jleon” by Jleon. Licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0. One thing I didn’t address in the first article in the series was whether I would pick who was in each league first and then match or match and then figure out the league. I decided to take a dual approach. The NBA goes first, then the D-League. After that, I...

Likely 2018 USMNT World Cup Squad (2015 Edition)

“Bobby Wood 1860 2011 2” by Ampfinger. Licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0. I decided with this go to get rid of my unknown spots, and just go for a full 30.

One more week? Celebrations, either way.

In fact, the rain is...

USA Basketball as English League: Part 1 – Who Gets In?

  “SCMap-doton-Greenville” by Seth Ilys. Licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0 via Wikimedia Commons. Let me start by saying there is no way this is perfect. The oldest NBA team is the 76ers, who started in 1946. “The oldest football club with a well-documented, continuous history is the Dublin University Football Club, founded in 1854 at Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland.” It really makes no difference to...

Free Culture Sports Show: January Madness

Amazon Affiliate:  The Mammoth Book of the World Cup Main Question:  Can UK go undefeated? A stupid question to ask at the beginning of the year I think, but surely they won’t lose in the SEC unless they get big heads. Enough guys back from last year not to allow that to happen, you would think. They proved they have some toughness in the...
