Watch what Marvel is calling their “Special Look” trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron that was shown during Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. While the latter half features the same footage shoown in the trailer, the first half is dedicated to one particular sequence showing (some of) the Avengers attempt to be “worthy” by picking up Thor’s hammer.
Things have not gone well for Mario in the last couple of months since joining Liverpool and today, finally, Mario scored his first goal for the Reds.
Seven minutes after coming on as a substitute, Mario helped pull Liverpool from the dumps against a 10-man Swansea, who was leading 1 – 0 at the time, to get a foot on a Fabio Borini cross, to knot the game at a goal a piece. In extra time, Dejan Lovren scored the game winner.
Mario let out a tongue in cheek “FINALLY” tweet teamed with an emoji letting us know that it was on his mind just as much as ours.
PUMA has made some big moves in recent times signing some of the world’s brightest stars to their roster. Guys like Mario Balotelli, Marco Reus and Cesc Fabregas wear PUMA boots like the evoSpeed and evoPower. Today we see updated colorways in both boot silos.
Caron Butler is a 12-year veteran of the NBA, but an ATF drug bust nearly ended his basketball career. He was 15 at the time. In this VICE Sports exclusive, Butler takes us on a tour of his childhood hometown and recounts the harrowing stories and random moments that somehow led him to a life no one could have ever predicted.
* These are my favorite kinds of videos. We were sent this from OG Winger Trevor Schrock for the “random Soccer” series because Caron is wering the Wayne Rooney England shirt, but he also added what a good video this is. And, I couldn’t agree more.
VICE media, is pretty much at the top of the food chain right now for me as far as digital content, and venturing in to sports, is something that we are definitely in favor with. This story on Caron is incredible. Dude is one of my favorite players ever. His nickname, is Tough Juice. He was given that nickname by coach Eddie Jordan for his aggressive and passionate play, but it goes a lot deeper than that.
I won’t give up all of his past because the video really gets in to it, and I ask you give it the 15 minutes it deserves. Sports makes a difference and I think he has a great take on how it played a big part in his life.
The other thing too, is that he has to be commended for what he did in turning his life around. Do a little bit of internet investigating after watching the video and you see that he is one of the real ambassadors for athletes coming back to the inner city and making a difference. Can’t say how much I appreciate this cat.
Shouts out to VICE Sports for another great profile. Check them out on the internets and subscribe for new content that they put up all the time. They hit all sports too – I’ve seen quite a bit of soccer content that is really good.
~~ Randomly came across this video this morning and starting thinking back to all the ridiculously stupid *ish I either took part of or witnessed with my crew…. Nothing like going back in time and reminding yourself how much fun you had.
I’m not going to name any names, but if you know us personally (or by figuring out our personalities here on TOW) it’s pretty easy to figure out which people Steve, Ben and I would be in these clips…..
We headed up to Seattle over the weekend to check out Landon’s last regular season MLS game. It just so happened that LA and Seattle were battling it out for the Supporters Shield so that added to what was already going to be a pretty special game. The league’s two leading teams. A trophy on the line. Landon’s last regular season match. A massive crowd. As an MLS fan, it doesn’t get much better than that.
Here are a few sights as we saw them from the game.
With so much on the line, the game was scrappy. It was only a matter of time until things boiled over, and things got pretty close in this moment.
And then things changed. We see this so many times in soccer. In sports. Maybe in life in general. The game is tight. Neither team has taken control and dominated. The game is back and forth and somewhat fluid. But in an instance, things change. Half a chance turns into a goal and the game changes quickly and completely. This was that moment. This gave Seattle a 1-0 lead and ultimately locked up the Supporters Shield for them. Just that quickly everything changed.
This seems to sum up the mood at that moment much better than words ever could.
