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...

Revisiting La Liga and EPL after Round of 16 UCL

In January, I made a couple of earth-shattering predictions: 1) Manchester United would win the English Premier League. 2) Barcelona would win the Spanish La Liga.

Thoughts on US Chances with ~3 days to go
