Former Soccer Player and NY Giant Odell Beckham Jr. Made the Greatest Catch Ever in Football

Filed under: Culture & Lifestyle, Random Soccer in Random Places

Good lord.

A video posted by isps_tow (@isps_tow) on

I know, I know… thats a bold statement, and there is no way to actually say that definitely, but when you have a former all-pro commentator saying its the greatest that he’s ever seen, I’m going to take his word for it.

The fact that he said, “Thats IMPOSSIBLE” and its something that he’s just seen, says it all to me.

By the way, one of my favorite things ever, is hearing athletes and entertainers who have seen it all and done it all, when they are impressed with something. As a fan, I think its special, but when you can get your peers to react, thats a whole different deal.

Random soccer in random places.

Anyways, that was an interesting tid-bit from Al and Chris when talking about Odell Beckham Jr.’s folks and where he came from. Apparently, he was a pretty good soccer player. According to Odell, its the sport he fell in love with first.

“It was my first love. My coach actually tried to get me on the national team when I was like 13, 14, but to do the soccer thing, you really have to go overseas. It was a decision at a young age that I didn’t really want to leave my family. It was one of those things where I had to let it go, even though I still think about it to this day.”

Teal Bunbury goes lucky lefty from outside the box to the top left corner of the goal to put the Revolution up 1 – nil over the Red Bulls.

Twitter properly lost its shit… Check out the first tweet though from Teal, looks like he was feeling good ahead of the game. Gotta love an athlete that calls his shot.

Coca-Cola Spokesman Quotes On FIFA’s Concerning ‘Conflicting Perspectives’

Filed under: Soccer News

Qatar

~~  After a 40 year World Cup relationship, how telling is this quote…. Listen, it’s not like there won’t be plenty of companies lining up to replace Coca-Cola is they walk, but when Fortune 100′s ‘spokesman’ say something like this….. You wonder how much momentum this situation continues to pick up.

via SkySports

Coca-Cola, which has sponsored FIFA’s flagship tournament for almost 40 years, says it is concerned over “conflicting perspectives” of the long-awaited report into the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 finals.

A summary of the report from FIFA’s top ethics judge Hans-Joachim Eckert cleared successful bidders Russia and Qatar of significant wrongdoing while specifically taking issue with aspects of England’s 2018 bid.

Eckert’s version was then criticised by Garcia, who claimed his conclusions had been misrepresented, and in the fallout several senior figures within the game, including Football Association chairman Greg Dyke, have called for the report’s full publication.

FIFA says legal restrictions mean this cannot happen, but in the meantime football’s governing body is facing pressure to act transparently from one of its most recognisable sponsors.

A Coca-Cola spokesman, quoted in The Sunday Times, said: “Anything that detracts from the mission and ideals of the FIFA World Cup is a concern for us.

“The current conflicting perspectives regarding the investigation are disappointing. Our expectation is that this will be resolved quickly in a transparent and efficient manner.”
