Have never seen a bigger run of punk play than Vayo ran heads up in the World Series tonight. I mean, holy hell, bet your fucking hand once in a while.

I wonder if his advisors concocted that strategy specifically for Nguyen. If Vayo had caught even half the cards Nguyen did it would have been reasonably effective. That being said, he really needed to pounce a couple of times, but he was terrified of getting 3-bet while holding air and having to fold.

You gotta give Nguyen credit- the guy is fucking fearless. I have played against guys like him before- they are a fucking nightmare when they are catching cards. They are wonderful if I am catching cards and they don't adjust, however  awesome, for real

Seems a good thread for this, as purists don't consider MLS real Football/Soccer.

MLS cup was this weekend. Seattle Sounders vs Toronto FC. First Canadian team to make the finals.

Nil Nil after regulation and OT, including this save around the 110 minute mark:

Ended up going to Seattle in Penalties, despite Seattle having zero shots on target in the game. Seattle keeper made 7 saves.

It may not be up to world standards, but it can still be pretty entertaining (especially live).

I watched it. Entertaining it was not. I want the MLS to have good football but at least half the teams in the league do not understand the concept. Also, fuck turf. Fuck turf SO HARD.

Ok, it really wasn't a good game, I just tried slipping that by assuming no one watched it. Which is too bad, because the 5-3 semi between Toronto and Montreal before that was.

I think I was entertained by the game mostly due to the number of Winter Ales I had downed at the pub.

Yes turf sucks, but so does trying to keep a grass field alive in the winter in Toronto.

That game is kind of par for the course with MLS though, at least most of what I've seen over the last few years. There are some entertaining games and teams and though I didn't watch it, the Montreal-Toronto series seemed to have all that. The Final though had all the worst aspects of MLS. I've seen more entertaining first round FA Cup matches with non-league teams on both sides.

Pretty much this. NA climate is significantly drier and colder than Europe.

I knew Bradley would miss his PK. I don't trust him.

Bradley is like the "hot" girl at a small, country high school.  He's damned awesome in the right venue.... but mostly gets exposed when he's among the real players

ESPN just fired a ton of on air talent.

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/espn-will-cut-100-air-personalities-today-123057142.html

I would hope that at some point ESPN comes back to its roots and goes back to mainly airing sporting events and talking about what happens in said events as a baseline and at least attempts to do that well.

Still, a bit shocked that they ditched Dilfer. He actually doesn't suck that bad. Ed Werder too.  There's a lot of useless dead meat that isn't on the lists floating around.

And yet they kept the talkshow hosts... so glad I have that channel.

Some of the shows aren't too bad. I actually don't mind PTI or Around the Horn. Even Highly Questionable isn't too bad. The shouting match Steven A Smith garbage and pop culture/TMZ type crap is horrible though.

It's sad when I miss a game I really wanted to see, and the best I get is 10 seconds of poorly called highlights because it was a west coast game. OHH but I get the full 15 minutes of kid with cancer that got to meet his favorite football player for the 1000th time.

ESPN is making the same goddamn mistakes MTV made. It's getting away from their core brand, the thing that makes them special - i.e. live sports and shittons of highlights of other live sports. All this talk radio garbage that they've been shitting up the airwaves with for years is just utter shit. It's fine in small doses but the whole goddamn network is wall-to-wall with this shit when there isn't live sports to be had (and they stopped doing replays of the live events they used to do). Fuck that noise. Replay last night's MLB game. I'd rather encase my cock in concrete than listen to Stephen A. Smith again.

Meanwhile, Fox Sports is trying to outdo them in this idiocy by snapping up all their worst hosts like Skip Bayless.

Well at least it isn't wall to wall reality shows yet or introducing a sports version of Game of Thrones. So, there's that going for them.

They'll either right the ship or go straight to History Channel levels of stupid.
