Trokspot commented on Argentina will meet Germany for World Cup Final
I'm rooting hard for Argentina!  I think your questions are interesting though... My initial guess would be that Brazilians would not be pulling for Argentina as there is a long-standing rivalry between those two countries as to who is better... (see more)

Trokspot commented on USA: The World Cup and Soccer more generally
Thanks for the comment! Just to be clear - I like soccer quite a bit and am glad to see that it seems to be picking up some momentum here (like you - fingers crossed!).  This isn't "why I don't like soccer" (because I do), rather... (see more)

USA: The World Cup and Soccer more generally
We are in the midst of one of the world's biggest sporting events - the World Cup.  This is an event that only happens every four years, and it is a huge deal.  Thirty-two teams from various countries are divided into eight groups of...

What is 'sport'?
What is sport?  This might seem like a silly question as it is one that we often take for granted. "Of course, I know what sport is," you might say.  But how do we actually define sport?  This is a question that I use to...

Super Bowl Stuff
Super Bowl Sunday is upon us.  Broncos vs Seahawks. Offense vs Defense.  The Super Bowl is always one of the most watched events of the year, and with that comes a plethora of media coverage leading up to the big game.  Nearly every...

Trokspot commented on Pacers sign Andrew Bynum
The only reason that the Pacers would even consider signing him (and ended up signing him) is to keep him away from the Heat. I am a Pacers fan and I hate this move. Even keeping him away from the Heat isn't quite enough for me to be on board with... (see more)

Trokspot commented on Johnny Manziel suspended for first half of season opener
"his antics have finally come back to bite him" I think your whole article goes on to say that they actually haven't come back to bite him...  A suspension for 1 HALF of a football game against a not very good team.  That's... (see more)

Trokspot commented on The 5 most annoying sports stories of the summer
I will agree with you on that one.  But I steer clear of that coverage...that way it doesn't annoy me! haha

Trokspot commented on The 5 most annoying sports stories of the summer
I think the Pats have done a good job keeping Tebow mostly out of the news....which I am EXTREMELY thankful for! I considered the Hernandez story, or even more generally, just the coverage of NFL arrests, but decided against it.  I guess it being... (see more)

The 5 most annoying sports stories of the summer
Lots of people criticize ESPN for fixating on only certain sports stories/players and then hyping and covering them until you can no longer stand to hear about them. With the summer winding down and the first NFL Preseason game now in the books...

Spurs win game 5 as Finals' swings continue
The Spurs defeated the Heat 114-104 to take a 3-2 series lead in the NBA Finals.  This means that the Spurs are one win away from an NBA Championship, a win that will have to happen on the road in Miami.    It has been a back and forth...

Trokspot commented on The Colllege World Series: Because it's all about the education
Brings back memories of that great Snickers commercial: "The endzone looks great, but who are the CHEFS??"  hahaha.

Trokspot commented on The movement is gaining traction, but should the Redskins change their name?
I'm with you for the most part, with one major exception/caveat.  You don't have to (or shouldn't have to) be a member of a Native American tribe to understand that it is an offensive name/slur.  You don't have to be black to... (see more)

Trokspot commented on VIDEO: Jimmy Kimmel roasts Miami Heat fans in latest "Lie Witness News" segment
His "Lie Witness" stuff is hilarious!  But it's not just the Heat - he did the exact same thing with Lakers fans at the beginning of the finals. He has also gotten hipsters who go to Coachella by asking them about the best indie... (see more)

Trokspot commented on Dennis Rodman is still very much insane
I get your point, and I don't disagree with it completely.  I also often lament and criticize how bad team defense often is in the NBA. My point was not that simply size or athletic ability would equal success.  We know that LB is much... (see more)

Trokspot commented on Dennis Rodman is still very much insane
^ if you transport this LeBron as is, back to the 80s-90s, then yes, the physical play would probably bother him for a bit. But he would adjust pretty quickly. Let's not forget that LeBron is bigger and stronger than most dudes...he has picked up... (see more)
