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...

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. Also, I realized that on my original article I went with a 21-man roster, not a 23-man roster. We even talked about it on the Free Culture Sports Show, and no one called...

US 2018 World Cup Roster Prediction (2014 Edition)

I know some of you hate that I’m doing this article, but it’s happening. As I write this opening, I’ve picked 20 (well 17) of my players. It’s been a great tool for forcing me to think about the future of the team. I’ve already been thinking about the upcoming tournaments, and obviously those tournaments will tell us how early I need to change...

ROUND OF 16 – Colombia v Uruguay

The big questions around this match were all focused on a player who wouldn’t be there, Luis Suarez. How would the Uruguayans cope with his suspension? Could they win without him? Which is a shame as Colombia for me has been one of the stand out teams in the tournament so far. At least the Uruguayans appeared to agree with me. They spent the...

Doug’s Take on the Round of 16 Match-ups and Beyond

On the top of the bracket, Brazil and Colombia I had through to the quarterfinals, so being wrong on where Chile and Uruguay would end up won’t cost me that much, if I’m correct. I had Ecuador topping their group and making it to the quarterfinals. I just wasn’t sold on France or Switzerland. Plus, I didn’t realize how reliant Ecuador was on altitude....

Uruguay ‘bites’ their ticket to the Round of 16

Captain Diego Godin scored in the 81st minute as Uruguay edged 10-man Italy 1-0 Tuesday to reach the second round of the World Cup, although the victory was overshadowed by a biting incident involving the South American side’s star forward Luis Suarez. Four-time champion Italy, meanwhile, is heading home after the group phase for the second time in four years. Godin rose above a...

With the US through, does Landon Donovan have a place in the future of the USMNT? 1

With the US through, does Landon Donovan have a place in the future of the USMNT?

So, the US is through the Group of Death. Jurgen was right, we didn’t need Landon – yet. I don’t want to talk about this World Cup though. I want to talk about the 2015 Gold Cup, 2016 Copa America, World Cup Qualifying, 2017 Gold Cup, and 2017 Confederations Cup. I think Donovan is still a part of this team going forward. Donovan has...
