News of the Day!

I don’t know that I’m going to continue to separate the Euro coverage from my other coverage, but I felt like I had enough today. NBA Eric might be writing an article on the NBA Finals. Apparently, people want that, although so far no one has responded to my inquiry . And because ratings are so good, I can’t agree that Stern’s ignorance overshadows...

What do you want to see in Sportazine?

Last night, new writer Eric Crews asked me how many hits we got for our articles. Considering I have a personal blog and a music podcast that both get more traffic, despite not having daily posts, I was initially quite shocked with the results. However, the thought occurred to me that unlike technology fixes (some of the highest hit counts on my personal blog)...

Euros: Day 6 – Favorites Collide

Denmark v. Portugal (2-3) Game of the tournament, perhaps. It certainly was if you like goals (being a goalkeeper, I’m not big on goals). Portugal was up 2-0, but saw that lead slip to 2-2. I have no Danish or Portuguese players in my team. According to FIFA 2012, Christian Eriksen is going to be one of the best players in the world. They’ve...

Euros: Day 5 – Let’s Do It All Over Again!

Have you ever wondered how the US would fair in Group A? ESPN did. I can’t say I’m convinced Stuart Holden is the answer, and I’m also not as pessimistic about the US. I was at the US/Brazil game and the US created plenty of chances. I’m not going to rehash my thoughts. Czech v. Greece (2-1) The Czechs are ranked 27th in the...

Congratulations to the LA Kings! 2

Congratulations to the LA Kings!

Technically speaking, they haven’t won the game yet, but much like on election night, I’m going to “call it”. It’s 6-1 with 3.5 minutes left. I’m not watching the game, but I still felt like congratulations deserved its own post, rather than being stuck with the Day 5 Euro coverage. Hopefully one of the other SportAZine authors will bring you some NHL coverage! Get...

Euros: Day 4 – SVERIGE !!

Here’s a first: Getting my article out the same day as the games! I could spend more time on this article, but since the articles for the other three days have been rather short, I figured I would keep this one consistent and start working on the article for tomorrow. Things will really start to get interesting tomorrow with the Czechs facing elimination! Sadly,...

Euros: Day 3 – Time to Breathe

I am currently first in my fantasy group! I have four more players starting today. I’ll talk about them on the Day 4 article. I’ve got to say though, I’m more interested in the games today (Day 4) than the games yesterday (Day 3). There’s time enough for that tomorrow, I guess – expect a more expansive article. I am not sure if I...

Euros: Day 2 – Can There Be a Shocker in the Group of Death?

Group B has been dubbed the “Group of Death”. All four teams are ranked in the FIFA top ten. The Netherlands v. Denmark The Netherlands are #4 and Denmark is #9. Is Denmark winning 1-0 a shocker? No. It *is* unexpected, but anybody that is shocked did not know about the Dutch week back line. Don’t get me wrong, I have van der Weil...
