Post #MatchDay1 – Liverpool Over Stoke

I should start this with a disclaimer, I was not able to watch the full game. Now that that is out of the way, I don’t think I needed to watch the full game to get the jest.

FCSS: 2015 Women’s World Cup + UEFA CL Review

June 13 – Champions League Final Review / Women’s World Cup Doug: First, I got to see some of Norway demolishing Thailand. It’s interesting that the southeast Asian countries are good in the women’s game. Is it because the Islamic world doesn’t do women’s sports in full or because size doesn’t matter as much in women’s?

FCSS: Sweet Sixteen Roundup

 It has been a crazy couple of weeks in sports.  From the Cowboys signing Greg Hardy, to Stephen Gerrard making a 45 second appearance before getting a Red Card against Man U, to all of March Madness, to Kevin Durant being sidelined for the rest of the season. The NBA season is coming to a close, and Charlotte (my local team) is only 1.5...
