Disappointment

What a weekend in sports. Where to start? Wolves, Liverpool, Manchester City, UFC Main card? Let’s go in order. Manchester City – I don’t like Man City. I guess I respect Pep; he’s a great coach with a lot of money at his disposal. And I love Kun Aguero, but he’s at the end of…

Freeze

Yes, I’m in Texas. Yes, I have power, for now. We’re having rolling blackouts and you never really know when it’s going to roll back around. And yes, it’s freezing. But enough about my misery; that’s not the freeze I’m thinking about today. Last weekend, we saw the title fight between Gilbert Burns and Kamaru…

Skills

A few nights ago, I got lost in a hockey match. The TV was just on and somehow I got obsessed with the game. I think it’s the ice: I live in a warm climate and I miss the snow and ice. When I watch the winter Olympics I get the same feeling. All of…

End of year

We are living through some very strange times: Everton’s in 3rd place, Arsenal is 15th. People are calling for Lampard’s firing – and should we light a candle for Rhian Brewster? One day he was riding high with the champs, the next he’s missing a penalty kick and being sent out of town to Sheffield….

Fight Night at the Apex

First, I would like to thank Dana White for all this speculative material. All I can think about is who is leaving the organization next. So who’s next? We might get a bit of clarity this weekend at The Apex. Let’s make some picks: Pettis vs Morono – Pettis is on his last fight with…

UFC 256 debrief

Fun stuff. Seems it’s not just us fans worried about who’s getting cut. Fighters seem rattled as well. Cub won his fight and got a bit emotional afterwards. He has 3 kids to feed. Oh Jacare. He lost in a bad way to Kevin Holland. Got KO’d from the bottom Niko-style. Wow. JDS lost in…

UFC 256

UFC 256 is a great card of fights. It’s a great card despite the lingering idea that some of these guys might get cut. Prelims on now. Question: Why do people get very publicly engaged, but never get married? What’s that about? Anyway, my picks: Cub Swanson vs Daniel Pineda – Cub is on the…

MMA News

Lots of news in MMA world. Let’s start with the big one: Dana White says he plans to cut 60 fighters from the UFC roster. This week, fans learned that Yoel Romero and Anthony “Rumble” Johnson received their walking papers and some are shook. I’m not. If you don’t want to give 100% in the…

Fight Day vs Fight Night?

I think I prefer these early fights, but today the powers-that-be were messing with us. Manchester United, Chelsea FC and Liverpool FC were on at the same time as the fights. But we endured during this difficult time. Liverpool won their match, while United vs Chelsea was a bit boring. Then it ended in a…
