Today, US Soccer revealed their primary kit for the 2014 World Cup. For those of you who have been paying attention on twitter or any other soccer/football gossip site, the shirt is nothing new because it’s been floating around for what seems like years now. Shoot, we even covered the leak of the new shirt over at sportslogos.net. However, that doesn’t mean that we still can’t talk about it since there is nothing more important than what your team is wearing at the World Cup. Nothing. This is it. This is clearly the most important topic. Continue reading
“Who me? Ain’t shit. Sittin’ court-side at All-Star / And this? Givenchy. My shirt covered in all stars”
Yes, Tauheed, tell us again. Unless you live under a rock, you know that this weekend was All-Star Weekend for the NBA.

Inspired by Jon Bois’ “Breaking Madden” (particularly the Super Bowl Season Finale) and in part by our own Daniel Poarch’s 2k Labs, I present to you the next step in Video Game Destruction; Effing Up FIFA (credit @paezpumarL on the twitterz for the naming inspiration). While Jon ended his journey with a bang of a superhuman team against a team of untermensch against a team of uberuberubermensch… I decided to use it as my opener. I was too lazy to create a team of Sports and Such staffers to be the weaklings in the scenario, instead opting for a downloadable team called The Worst Team Ever with a roster consisting solely of terrible players whose attributes are all set to minimum, except for the stamina. I mean, we’re not monsters, we don’t want them dying out there. As you see, the author of said team, apparently French, decided to give the players the ambitious names of… Numbers. In French. They’re all medium sized (5’9″ and 165 to be exact) and horrible at everything. Their overalls only differ because the weighing of stamina depending on position differs in FIFA. Apparently, midfielders need it more than forwards. Who’d have thunk it? Continue reading
The announcement that the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup would be the last to include ‘Wild Card’ selections was widely met with approval by the basketball community, as it’s pretty hard to argue that anything other than performance on court should have any part in World Cup selection. As this is the last tournament with Wild Cards we’ll be summarising and analysing the performances of the Wild Card candidates and looking at the legitimacy of each selection.
