BIG day of Barclays Premier League matches ahead. The seasons is definitely reaching it’s climax. If you’re looking for some pre-game listening to help you get amped for it, check out this podcast.
Today marks the 72nd birthday of legendary boxer Muhammad Ali, a man who, throughout all his years in the ring, truly earned and merited the name by which he is otherwise known: “The Greatest.”
The Group of Opportunity
It could have been boring, mundane, even uneventful. It could have been straightforward, unexciting, deserving of a shrug of the shoulders and a “meh.” A second consecutive kind World Cup draw for the U.S. Men’s national team, this time perhaps in the “Group of Life” with Switzerland, Ecuador and France, may have provided more room for comfort and confidence for American fans ahead of June, but may as well have offered less to truly capture the imagination of the neutral.
What the United States - as well as Germany, Portugal, and Ghana - have gotten instead, if not the toughest group in Brazil 2014, is the most drama-filled pairing of them all. For a spectacle that comes just once every four years, Friday’s draw at the Costa do Sauípe Resort in Bahia provided three match-ups that are truly worth the wait.
As Jozy Altidore said after the draw, "this isn’t the Group of Death, but a Group of Opportunity."

Taking Down The Big Boys
Everton sealed a 1-0 victory today against Chelsea in the Barclays Premier League and, if you’re a fan of the type of methodical, patient tactics that winning manager Roberto Martinez has brought to his side, it’s a win for your sense of style in football as well. The way in which Everton picked up three points at home today was reminiscent of another early season scalp of one of the Premier League’s big boys, last campaign’s season opener against Manchester United at Goodison. But whereas the Red Devils were bullied into a loss on that day, Everton claimed this victory through outsmarting Chelsea.
