I Am Delusional, Believe US Can Beat Germany & Some Other Thursday Notes

I know nothing about soccer. I can name about eight players on the USMNT. I hate that that is true, unlike other unapologetic American sportswriters. I wish I knew lots about soccer and watched it all the time. It’s similar to the way I feel about hockey. The truth is, those two goal-oriented sports have...
Iker Casillas Wishes He Could Make a Save Like This One

Iker Casillas Wishes He Could Make a Save Like This One

Before Chile’s historic win over the reigning World and European champions Spain, there was a hilarious moment in which the ref got snubbed in the handshake line. If only Iker Casillas could make saves like this one, then maybe he would still be smiling.

Road To Brazil – The NBA Finals

Soccer may be the most popular sport in the world, but basketball is a better one. I am on my way to the World Cup. So what. The NBA Finals will be watched and analyzed no matter what country I’m in. After a depressing ending to a Finals Game 1 for LeBron James (due to jello-leg),...

Road To Brazil – First Stop: Atlanta Blade Show

Every year, thousands of people gather from all over the world for the biggest knife show in the world. Where else to have a knife show but in the heart of the South: Atlanta, Georgia. Why am I stopping here on my way to the World Cup? Because I work as an interpreter for some of the best...
The Mission

The Mission

The Clown Show cares about sports outside of baseball and football, which is why we’ve ponied up the cash to send two correspondents to Brazil for the World Cup – absolutely no airfare, hotel, or expense paid. We mean these two are getting all of our non-existent resources for the month. Nothing is too small...
