adidas Launches Messi’s Champions League Cleat

I was having a conversation with my pops today about programming and sports. Sports used to have a whole lot less coverage on TV and therefore they were more programmed. But these days with TV deals and so many channels and hours of programming to fill, there are sports and games on all the time. In time slots that aren't traditional. It's a sign of ...

“Derek Jeter Day” Retirement Ceremony : Random Soccer in Random Places #NASA

200 miles above Earth, NASA astronauts Steve Swanson, Reid Weisman and Alex Gurst tip their hat to Derek Jeter on Derek Jeter Day * This actually isn't so random, because we've seen the German international astronaut rocking that Germany kit on the pages of TOW before... but now I'm starting to think: Does he ever take that thing off?

Gumby Haircut :: Bobby Brown v. Samuel Eto’o …. Who ya got?

I love everything about this post. Samuel Eto'o has never been one to shy away from expressing himself with an interesting haircut, and this isn't the first time that he's rocked the Gumby.

Cult of Personality – Jorge Campos

I was searching the Interwebs today looking through some vintage soccer images. I'm not sure how vintage he is, but there were some images of Jorge Campos that showed up. This got me thinking about how dope this dude was. Few soccer players, especially goalies, have ever stood out quite like Jorge Campos did. His bright jerseys and goalkeeper ...

Beastie Boys So What’cha Want – Muppets Edition

Remember the Beastie Boys song "So What'Cha Want" from back in the early 90's? Some of you probably do. Some may not. I definitely do. Nobody did it quite like The Beastie Boys.
