Did Mexico’s win over Germany cause minor earthquake in Mexico City?

Mexico’s win over Germany appears to have caused seismic activity in Mexico City

Fans crowd the streets of Mexico City for a watch party ahead of Mexico’s World Cup opener against Germany.

All throughout the World Cup there are numerous commercials aired showing how the entire planet seems to come to a halt once the tournament starts. Even better, those commercials show the pure, insane joy that floods a country when it scores a goal. It almost looks like the entire nation is jumping up and down at once.

It’s certainly a fun dramatization. Unless you live in Mexico, of course, where those scenes might feel more like a documentary.

Stan Collymore: ‘The Thing White Men Hate Most is Outspoken Black Men’

The former England forward-turned-broadcaster has become a strident voice on football’s relationship with race and, despite the backlash on social media, he stands by every word

Stan Collymore

Sachin Nakrani | The Guardian UK

Stan Collymore has agreed to speak to me last Tuesday afternoon but it has to be over the phone as he is driving to St George’s Park for England’s pre-World Cup media day. So I call him at 1pm and connect immediately. But the line is bad and I fear our interview will not go well. Or proceed at all.

I need not have worried. The sound improves and, as it does, Collymore bursts into life. The next half an hour or so is a whirlwind as the former England forward speaks passionately, honestly, intelligently and controversially about a topic that means a lot to him: RACE.

Collymore has a lot to say, a lot to get off his chest, a lot of targets to fire at, and it is riveting.

Days after winning one of the coveted football championships in the world as coach of Real Madrid, its iconic coach Zinedine Zidine has resigned. It will go on as the greatest irony in sports anywhere in the world in recent memory.
If you look at it from a sports angle, you may not understand his motive but if you use the philosophical approach, you may realize this was a sensible psychological decision that all humans should consider if they are in a similar position as Zidine.      Continue reading

SIR FRANK WORRELL’S LEGACY – The West Indies should learn from its Elder Statesman    

By Albert Baldeo 

Worrell graces the covers of Word Sports magazine

“Worrell never made a crude or an ungrammatical stroke…Worrell was poetry.”   — Sir Neville Cardus, the doyen of cricket writers 

“So when half a million Australians lined the streets of Melbourne in their ticker tape farewell to Worrell and his men, they were not only paying a final tribute to the team’s great achievements, they were recognizing the capacity and potential of equals both on and off the turfHe saw the many diverse elements of the West Indies as a whole, a common culture and outlook separated only by the Caribbean Sea.” —-Sir Learie Constantine
