If you’re looking to dip your toes into the world of Japanese Whiskey, we suggest starting with Yamazaki, the first distillery in the country, which began production in 1924. And if you are looking to dive in headfirst with a premium offering, Yamazaki 25 Single Malt Whiskey ($1,600) should fit the bill. This complex whisky was aged for over 25 years in sherry casks, giving it an unusually dark color and huge amount of flavor. It’s available in limited quantities of only around 12,000 bottles every year.
Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along – her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
“The AT&T MLS All-Star Game is one of the premier soccer events on the North American sports calendar,” MLS Commissioner Don Garber said in a statement. “We are pleased that Bayern Munich, one of the most prominent and successful clubs in the world, will be part of our All-Star celebration. This will be the first MLS special event in Portland since the Timbers joined the League in 2011.
“One of the great stories in Major League Soccer over the last number of years has been the enormous fan passion, civic support and stadium atmosphere in Portland. We look forward to showcasing this phenomenon to the rest of the world.”
The game – which will be televised live on ESPN2 and UniMás in the United States, TSN and RDS in Canada, and in more than 130 countries worldwide – marks the 11th time in the event’s 19-year history that an international club will take on the All-Stars.
“It’s an honor for us to be the first German club to play the MLS All-Star Game,” Bayern Munich head coach Pep Guardiola said in a statement. “MLS is experiencing great development and we are very much looking forward to compete against the best players of MLS.”
I still remember the 1994 World Cup and in particular the World Cup final. I was young and had somehow scored tickets to the finals. Brazil v Italy on what was a particularly hot day in Pasadena – and if you know Pasadena, you know how hot it gets there. Romario was in his prime and a young Ronaldo was there as well. This happened to be the first World Cup that I remember the Nike Tiempo boots. I was a Nike fan and seeing Nike boots on the field had me intrigued. Plus it didn’t hurt that there were a lot of Brazilian players sporting the Tiempos.
Cut to a few years later and I’m playing professionally in Holland. I get called into the US Olympic Team (same one funny was on) and they lace us with crazy amounts of Nike gear. Including Nike Tiempos. I wore that boot for pretty much the remainder of my professional career (it was short lived, but still…). Ever since I have loved this boot. Especially given what we have seen happen with boots recently. I’m a fan of all the new technology, the new materials being used, etc. But I still am partial to a leather upper. And the Tiempo delivers on this just like it always has.
And now almost 20 years since that 1994 World Cup, Nike is unveiling the Tiempo Legend V.

The U.S. Soccer Federation and Jurgen Klinsmann have agreed to a four-year contract extension that will keep the former World Cup champion in his role as head coach of the U.S. Men’s National Team through 2018. As part of the new deal, Klinsmann also becomes the Technical Director for U.S. Soccer.
I’ve known this man for a long, long time and it needs to be mentioned that he’s one of the most honest and sincere people I’ve had the pleasure of playing alongside, as well as interviewed. In Part Two, we discuss the legacy Kreis leaves behind, the fan culture in Salt Lake City and much more.
