Watch :: Chile’s Eduardo Vargas’ INCREDIBLE Goal Against PERU

Filed under: Chile, Goals, Highlights, Peru

This is a flat out GOLAZO from Eduardo Vargas in the 64th minute of the second to put Chile back up one goal over a 10 manned Peru.

Say what you want about the red that put Chile up a man, and you can’t discount the effort that Peru is putting forth to get keep this game competitive, and a bunch of other things,…. but this goal from Vargas, his second of the match, was absolutely world class.

One of the best goals I have seen in a while.

TOM HANKS Supports the USWNT for Women’s World Cup

Filed under: Supporters, US Women, Women's World Cup

I, for one, think that Tom Hanks just might be the greatest living actor right now.

All things considered that is.

I’m a huuuuuuuuge Wesley Snipes fan, and he may be my favorite guy ever, but Hanks has got everything you need in an actor.

He’s likeable, he does great box office, he does a lot of movies, a lot of different kinds of movies, he can friggin act his arse off, and he’s won trophies.

Fake turf or not, I'm full Bosom Buds if coach Ellis needs me. No yellow cards! Hanx

All the support.

I know, I know, there is this guy overseas called Daniel Day-Lewis thats pretty good … but he barely works. Theatrical that is. He’s probably the best, but thats what I’m saying about all things considered, nm guys.

Heineken House In NYC

Filed under: MLS News, Highlights, Videos, and Scores | Major League Soccer Highlights

Let me just put this out there…. Don’t sleep on what Heineken is doing in the United States with their Long – Term Deal with Major League Soccer….

And this past weekend, the crew put up their #HeinekenRivalryWeek drop at Pop 14 in the Meat Packing District in NYC opening up on Thursday night and wrapping up late on Sunday.

And that’s where Cobi Jones and I came in as we did ‘our’ version of calling a game, beers in hand and music bumping through the speakers courtesy of DJ Wonder.  

The crowd was live and a perfect mix of the type of crowd you’d want to watch a game with, newbies to old school heads.

If you get a chance to check out a Heineken House anywhere near you, I HIGHLY suggest checking it out.

From Liverpool to Los Angeles | EPISODE 1: THE SIGNING

Filed under: LA Galaxy, Liverpool, MLS News, Highlights, Videos, and Scores | Major League Soccer Highlights, Steven Gerrard

Steven Gerrard is a once in a generation type of oplayer. One of those guys that every player seems to respect and want to have as a teammate. The Galaxy are getting someone very special in Stevie G. They are going to be a scary team for opposing MLS sides.

Ahead of Gerrard’s arrival in LA, it looks like we will be seeing a series focused in on Steven Gerrard and his iminent arrival here in LA. This first episode is really good. Big props to the folks over at the Galaxy for this one. Realy, really well done. I’m ready for Episode 2!

Eintracht Frankfurt Home Kit 2015-16

Filed under: Culture & Lifestyle, Jerseys, Nike

eintracht-frankfurt-home-jersey-2015-16

Nike has unveiled the Eintracht Frankfurt Home Kit for 2015-16 and they did an amazing job with it. The jersey looks very sharp in all black with four slim red pinstripes contrasting beautifully against the black.

Nike doesn’t go into much depth with their description of the jersey, and I don’t really think one is needed. This is such a good looking kit. But what Nike did have to say about the kit is as follows:

Eintracht Frankfurt will take to the field this season in a distinctive new home kit. The club’s famous red and black stripes have evolved, with four slim red stripes on a black background now running horizontally down the shirt’s body and sleeves.

This daring reimagining of the famous Eintracht Frankfurt colors reflects the club’s forward-thinking ambition and honors its storied past, taking design cues from a 1970’s kit aesthetic.

The shirt features a modern V-neck collar with a red band at the back. There is also a red stripe along each of the shirt’s flanks, which continues along the sides of the otherwise all-black shorts.

I have no idea how well Entracht Frankfurt will perfrom thsi season. But they will no doubt be as stylish in this kit as any team they will face off against. I might need to get me one..

adidas Yeezy Boost x Predators

@adidasoriginals @adidasfootball YZY Boost Predator Touch 96 OG

A photo posted by @mbroidered on

Australian based designer Mbroidered went ahead and reimagined the Yeezy Boost 350 as vintage Predators. This combo works so well together and these have me feeling some sort of way. Maybe because the Preds have been phased out. Maybe because there was so much hype around the Yeezy Boost’s. But mostly because this clever combination just works so well and looks so damn good.

From this…

Cristiano Ronaldo Sells his Image Rights to Peter Lim and Mint Media

Filed under: Brands, Cristiano Ronaldo

I am very excited to announce my latest deal with Mint Media, owned by my good friend, businessman Peter Lim from…

Posted by Cristiano Ronaldo on Monday, June 29, 2015

Interesting announcement today from Cristiano Ronaldo, posted on his facebook page, that his team has closed a deal to allow Mint Media to acquire his image rights.

If Peter Lim’s name sounds familiar, its because he has recently made huge splashes in football, in April of 2015 was rated eighth amongst Singapore’s 50 richest people with an estimated net worth of $2.0 billion by Forbes Magazine.

This was on the heels of making headlines in 2014 by purchasing a controlling stake in Spanish football club Valencia for $475 million. Soon thereafter he dropped another $51 million for two players from Portuguese football club Benfica. He also agreed to throw in for a 50% stake in Salford City Club, from former Manchester United players Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville, and has invested in a hotel near old Trafford.

So, for a guy that is in to football, and in to making money, why not alighn himself and his company with one of the worlds biggest stars?

Accoring to a report from channelnewsasia.com, “Peter Lim’s Mint Media will own and administer all of football star Cristiano Ronaldo’s image rights, except for those related to Real Madrid, for six years.”

Billionaire Peter Lim’s company acquires Ronaldo’s image rights – CNA

If you arent quite sure what this means, here it is defined: The right of publicity, often called personality rights, is the right of an individual to control the commercial use of his or her name, image, likeness, or other unequivocal aspects of one’s identity.

One of the most common examples, of a celebrity image rights deals would be the famous George Foreman and George Foreman grills great deal of the past.

He sold his image and name rights to some random company for close to $140m USD and then the Foreman Grill became the most popular thing in the history of the planet.

He got a check in the beginning, a company found something to throw his name on, and they made a ton of dough too.

With the Cristiano deal, its obviously not quite the same since Real Madrid still retains some image rights of his, and this is just for his image rights, but this could be something very very lucrative as one could imagine.

We talked about a week ago about Jerome Boatend signing with Roc Nation for management in the United States and looking to appeal to a broader audience, and everyone knows that the two great frontiers coveted most based on population and marketing opportunities are the United States and Asia, and not particularly in that order.

Seems like another genius move to me by Cristiano.
