Remembering Garrincha

Talking to one of my parents about Pele I had to bring up the fact that sometimes the greatest players aren't recognized as the best of all time due to consistency that other very good players have. Please click the link to learn about one of Brazil's best and arguably a player who at his best was better than Pele at his best. Either way, enjoy...

Agreement Reached

An agreement, reported to be worth €8 million, has been reached after Real president Florentino Perez and Inter president Massimo Moratti met in Milan. Jose will be revealed to Madrid public on Monday... and the rest of the world's clubs quickly proceed to running and hiding. Ok maybe not Barca but everyone else. This year's La Liga is going to be epic!

Kanye's back

With the first single from his untitled new album, Power. Along with soccer my biggest passion is music and I am a huge Kanye fan. Power is one of the best hip-hop tracks I've heard all year and I think along with Eminem and Dr. Dre he will destroy everyone else with his 2010 album. Click below to download.

Hi My Name is Mourinho

and Im better than you. People want nothing more than someone who is great to fall but Jose just continues to laugh in their faces. As much as I hate to say this to my second favorite club in the world, I have to, "watch out Barca, your days at the top of Spain are becoming increasingly short." Jose will shortly be named manager of Real Madrid and the rest of the world should take serious notice. My prediction is the league and Champions League within 2 years and that's being generous. Im pretty sure he can do it in 1 year. Look for a big clear out at the Bernabeu and 3 key defensive signings.

David Villa to Barcelona for 40 mil Euros

Wow, I have been hearing talk that this would be done by today, but how often in football does that actual happen. Great news for any Barca fans or anyone in love with the beautiful game. I don't know if they are going to keep Ibra but if they do...Villa Ibra and Messi is as good a front line that has ever been assembled on paper. I would love to see Barca add Fabregas to the roster in the next few days as well. He was born to wear the blaugrana. Looks like this could be a much better silly season than last year. Now if only Liverpool could actually sign someone worth while...

Champions League final viewing in LA

Id' kill to be at this. Looks like it's time for more Center Circle innovations...

Nike Soccer and Temryss Lane from Fox Football Fone-In will be hosting the Champions League Final at The Montalban Theatre in Hollywood this Saturday. If you are in LA and are looking for a spot where you can watch the game on a giant 40 foot theatre screen with a few hundred other soccer fans, then The Montalban is where you need to be. Not to mention, you can play some futsal on the roof, check out some of the new gear that is available from Nike and wash it all down with some free food and drinks. from

What I love about this game in a single goal

Paulo Henrique Ganso to Robinho, this is the absurdity and creativity that separates this game from others and makes me love it so much. Obrigado jogadores Brasileiros

Chelsea are Champions

In a tightly fought game at the Bridge against Wigan (ok maybe 8-0 wasn't that tightly fought) Chelsea brought home the Barclays Premier League title. In Italy and Spain it looks to be going down to the last week as well with both Roma & Inter both winning as well as Real and Barca doing the same.
