A Battle for the Best “Chapelle’s Show” Sketch

I don’t really know how else to describe Dave Chapelle except for the fact that he’s pretty hilarious, even though some of his stuff is… well, I think watching a clip or two can really tell you everything. Weed, liberal use of the n-word, political and racial stereotypes all over the place. It’s still pretty funny regardless. Anyway, a writer for Grantland decided to pit the 64 most viewed sketches in a March Madness bracket. If you haven’t seen some of his stuff, check out the article.

Bye 2012… Hello 2013

The world didn’t end. I was surprised. You’d expect that people from 2000+ years ago to be able to predict when the world would end and do so with exact precision (down to the day). Instead, we get to remember all the events that happened this past year and look forward to 2013… Continue reading Bye 2012… Hello 2013

A Beginner’s Guide to Following Euro 2012

If you’ve been checking ESPN, CNNSI or other sports related websites, you might have been reading random headlines or sections devoted to Euro 2012. If you don’t know, Euro 2012 is a major soccer tournament. And if you haven’t already figured out by now, it’s a tournament in Europe.

Euro 2012 is one of the largest sporting events in the world. It’s smaller than, say, the World Cup or the Olympics of course. Like the World Cup and the Olympics, it happens only once every four years, coincidentally the same year as the Olympics. People from all over Europe come to watch their country try to win that trophy and claim the title of “Best in Europe”. But the tournament itself attraction to an audience that expands beyond Europe, but mainly because soccer is the most popular sport in the world.

If this is your first time ever hearing about this tournament or you’ve heard about it before, this might be a great year to actual watch it. And for those of us in the United States, we’re in for a real treat, as ESPN will be showing all the games for the tournament.

Great Article Analyzing FC Barcelona’s Game

If you haven’t noticed, I’m a huge fan of FC Barcelona’s style of play. If you’ve seen them play before but never understood how they obtained the successes they have on the field, here’s a great article about how they’ve found that success through manager Pep Guardiola. (via Kottke)

OK Go – Needing/Getting

I’m not a huge fan of OK Go’s music as I am of some of their music videos. However, this might be one of the most creative music videos I’ve seen. It’s just jaw-dropping what they did. If only they could have played it during half-time and not point people to the video, it could have won a lot more acclaim (or at least I think it could have).

Oh. And if only they used something other than a Chevy…

Why Real Madrid will continue struggle against Barcelona

In the time that Jose Mourinho’s been at Real Madrid, he’s won only once versus Barcelona, that being the Copa del Rey final where they won 1-0 off a Cristiano Ronaldo header. That might not seem bad, except that they’ve eight times now. Three times in the Copa Del Rey, three times in La Liga, and the two legs of the Champions League last season. Now that’s a problem if you’re a Real Madrid supporter. But what is to explain for their struggles against Barca? Continue reading Why Real Madrid will continue struggle against Barcelona

Jose Mourinho, the best manager right now.

As football (soccer) fans, we focus a lot on the players on the pitch. The plays that just make them special, the mistakes that make them goats. However, I think we tend to overlook the managers that are on the sidelines. There are managers like Arsene Wenger, Sir Alex Ferguson, Pep Guardiola, who have their respective titles and accolades. However, I think there’s one person that everyone hates to list. Heck, I even dislike the guy for his over-the-top personality. But he could arguably be the best manager right now. That person being Jose Mourinho.

Pardon the Interruption!

Before the most recent WordPress 3.1.1 update, there had been some issues with hackers getting onto my website. They uploaded Base64 files onto my server, which I eventually found. But unfortunately, as a result of it, there was malware on my website, which may or may not have been downloaded onto visitors. If you were one of those people, I’m really sorry about that. I had no clue until people recently told me about this in the past few days.

If you’ve checked this site in the past few days, please make sure to check your computer isn’t infected with anything. My apologies again. 🙁
