USA Men’s National Team Out Of 2018 World Cup

    This is the first time USA didn’t make the the World Cup since 1986. After the loss to Trinidad & Tobago, they came in 5th place behind Honduras in 4th, with Mexico in 1st place, Costa Rica in 2nd, and Panama in 3rd. USA finished with 12 points (1 point behind Honduras), with a +4 goal difference. Trinidad & Tobago beating the USA was a huge upset, because Trinidad & Tobago do not have a huge soccer reputation, as the only trophy that they have won is the Caribbean Cup, and that was only once.      The reason the USA getting knocked out of the World Cup is such a big deal is, that the USA have a big reputation for making it to the round of 16 in a lot of competitions. The USA usually make it to the Round Of 16 Than get knocked out. In the…

MLS & Local Hockey Previews

MLS (Major League Soccer) Predictions Myles will be predicting the two biggest matches of the week. Game Prediction 1: Orlando City vs FC Dallas This will be a close game.

The game will be close, but FC Dallas will eventually be victorious against Orlando, 3 – 1….

Blount has 5,459 yards in his career, 50 touchdowns, a 4.4 yard average, and he has 261 first downs.

The Elite Corners: Richard Sherman or Joe Haden?

Would you rather have Richard Sherman or Joe Haden on your NFL team? One of the biggest questions in the NFL’s free agency period right now is the Richard Sherman trade. The Seahawks have been willing to give up Sherman of late. He is one of the best cornerbacks in the league right now, and the Eagles biggest need is a cornerback. So you might be thinking that this is a win-win situation for the Eagles right. Well, not so much. Sherman is 29 years old, turning 30 next March. Sherman is a restricted free agent after this coming season. Well, who else could the Eagles trade for? Why not Joe Haden from the Browns? He’s only 27 years old, and he is a shutdown corner as well. Here are some of both of these players’ major stats: Haden has 19 interceptions since he was drafted, 4 forced fumbles, 4 fumble…

Number 3 (Chicago Bears): Leonard Fournette…


Video Game Facts: The Madden Curse!

The Madden Games. Who doesn’t know Madden? This popular football game first released in 1988 with John Madden as Electronic Art’s (EA) “cover player” to sell more games, and John Madden’s Football was an instant success. But did you know when EA replaced John Madden with other players, that Madden cursed the series? So, for those who do not believe in curses at first (such as myself), here is some evidence about how Madden will be cursed forever! It all began in 1998, where Garrison Hearst was racking up points for the San Francisco 49ers. EA liked this player, and when they offered Hearst to lead the Madden series, he agreed. Almost immediately after the offer was accepted, Hearst broke his ankle and could barely play at all that season. But maybe it was just one time, right? Wrong. When Madden NFL 2000 was close to releasing, EA thought of…
