Tailgating season is in full swing.  Major League Baseball is going strong, NASCAR is revved up, and there are plenty of summer time music festivals to party in the parking lot.  Tailgating is a wonderful way to get the party going before you go into the stadium or concert venue, or in many cases – in place of going in.  It’s a time-honored tradition of outdoor hedonism, wherein people park their cars, open their trunks, and bask in their love of the game or rock and roll.  Here are a …

USA Sports Map

Great fan artwork featuring a map of the United States, built entirely with logos from professional & collegiate sports teams. The artist did a great job of utilizing the right logos in the right location to fairly accurately outline the country.
A note from the author, which should add a bit of sting some of you out there whose team is missing:
This is a map of the USA made of sports logos. I couldn’t put every team, but I purposely didn’t put yours. Source: http://michael-danger.tumblr.com/

The Future of Major League Soccer

Soccer is by far the most popular sport overseas, garnering millions in revenue for its different leagues and their teams, players, owners, and sponsors. In England, the infamous football gangs–die-hard fans with the deepest level of obsession possible–will kill each other over their teams’ outcomes. They travel in hoards to visiting stadiums, wreaking havoc the entire way and vowing to cause bodily harm to the rival club. This kind of passion–and in no way am I advocating violence, here–is absent in America in terms of soccer.

Fantasy Makes It More Fun…Especially for Golf!

Crawling out of bed to go to work is hard enough. Crawling out of bed even earlier, and on a weekend, seems like blasphemy, even if I smell bacon. There better be eggs and a hot woman in an apron – only an apron.
Believe it or not, however, there is one Sunday every year when I get up with the sun. How could this anomaly happen? Three words: The British Open.
I live in Arizona, which means the Open Championship comes on TV at 6 a.m. I could DVR it, but …

It was only three years ago that the Stanford men’s volleyball team finished a gut-wrenching 3-25 season (2-20 in conference play), but you wouldn’t know it from looking at Monday’s AVCA coaches poll.
