Who introduces a brand new type of ball in the finals of the most important (yearly) championship in one of the most popular sports in the world?

Is the NBA going to introduce a new ball for Game 7 of the NBA Finals? What a terrible idea. Soccer needs to get with the program.

Apparently our good friends supporting Manchester United (an English team, they lost) drove a bus into some fans supporting Barcelona (a Spanish team, they won). Killing 4 people.

Way to stay classy, soccer fans.

What about this?



Though, to be fair, only one person died and it was an accident.

Look, the Sox hadn't won in 86 years, and they were the only team in a real sport (read: not the NHL) to come back from being down 3-0 in a series. Not only that but they were down by 1 run with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th inning against the (arguably) greatest closing pitcher ever, and they won that game, which is in itself a miracle. They had a lot to celebrate.

The Manchester United people won the fucking UEFA Champions League (the aforementioned most important yearly championship in the sport) LAST YEAR. They have not lost in their last 25 games in the tournament (which includes round robin play in the early stages, so losing isn't SO bad there, but these guys didn't even do that). They have the best player in the world. THEY WON LAST YEAR. Why are they freaking out?

Yeah, and this happened in Africa, thousands of miles from the countries those teams are from.

I guess they don't have anything else to care about down there?
