Hate Week: Crosstown Shootout

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year…”, yes everyone it’s Christmas time or the holiday season if that’s how you roll. More importantly it’s college basketball season!!!!! With all the early season tournament games out of the way we find ourselves in a mixture of warm up games, conference v. conference games, and best of all rivalry games. Cincinnati, Ohio is home to some famous chili and an even better inner-city rivalry, and no it’s not Skyline chili vs Gold Star chili (Skyline by 90), it is the Xavier University Musketeers vs the University of Cincinnati Bearcats.

Hate Week: Michigan-Ohio State

“Your outside may not say their name. But your inside can't imagine life without them.” FOX's promo for Saturday's game is 🔥🔥🔥 — Eleven Warriors (@11W) November 21, 2017 Ah the last week of regular season college football. The most hateful of hate weeks. Michigan and Ohio State will be meeting for the 111th time. Michigan leads the rivalry 58-48-6. Yet, much of sports is “What are you doing for me lately?” and in the case of Michigan the answer is not much. Since 2000 the Michigan Wolverines have won just three games against the Buckeyes….Three games….since 2000…let...

Italy Out

The 2018 World Cup is one with no Dutch, no Chileans, no Americans, and now no Italians. In one of the most upside down World Cup cycles ever shock strikes again. Italy is four time World Cup Champions and has played in every single World Cup since 1958. To not be able to qualify for the World Cup brings on a sense of sadness and panic. Shame Italy won’t be in Russia, but they have won just one game at the World Cup since winning it in 2006. That was against England, obviously…… — Mark Ogden (@MarkOgden_) November 14,...

The USA Hockey Olympic Jerseys are Out and They are Something

Yes, Olympic Hockey is right around the corner. Another Winter Olympics that I get to watch and say how will the United States lose to Canada this year. While we still have a few months before the US Team gets my hopes up only to have them brutally let down, it is time to see the sweaters they will be wearing. USA Hockey Unveils Nike 2018 Olympic/Paralympic JerseyReplica Jerseys Available at — Bucci Mane (@Buccigross) November 1, 2017 I have no idea where to start with these jerseys. It kind of looks like the US hockey logo...

Chris Mack Has Some Game on Twitter

Twitter is rough, it’s a competitive place full of jokes and comebacks. You always have to keep your head on a swivel, stay a step ahead. Last night Xavier basketball coach Chris Mack, of all people, proved he had a bit of Twitter game. Who eats candy that old? 😏 — Chris Mack (@CoachChrisMack) October 31, 2017 Now here’s just a little bit of context. Chris Mack took over at Xavier in the 2009-2010 season after Sean Miller left for Arizona. Since 2009-2010 Mack has led the Xavier Musketeers to three Sweet Sixteens, one Elite Eight, missed the tournament...

Catalonia 2-0 Madrid

Let me just say, as a writer, I hate to mix sports and politics. Yet, every so often the two cross paths, today is one of those days. Earlier today 12th place Girona beat La Liga powerhouse Real Madrid 2-1. Yes, this is super embarrassing for Real Madrid. In terms of Spanish soccer in La Liga only three teams are super relevant, Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Atletico Madrid. To have a top three team take an L to a team that is out of the top 8 is crazy. Shameful score line aside, Girona is a team located in...

Midterm for the UEFA Champions League

The first 3 match days in the Champions League have provided plenty of thrills, excitement, and heartbreak. With 3 games to go till the Round 16 we’ll look at who is in, who is out, and who is on the bubble: GROUP A Manchester United- Darth Jose Vader Mourinho and the Empire of Manchester United are looking good after three games with three wins. Pretty straight forward from here, as long they don’t self-destruct they should safely be into the round of 16. Manchester United IN. FC Basel- Two wins and a loss so far put Basel in second...
