Clint Dempsey APOLOGIZES for his U.S. Open Cup Actions

Filed under: Clint Dempsey, Suspensions, US Open Cup

I would like to apologize for my actions in the U.S. Open Cup.

Posted by Clint Dempsey on Thursday, June 25, 2015

This. Is. Everything.

Everyone is coming down on Clint lately …. and I wouldn’t say that it’s not without reason. He had a little bit of a meltdown and reacted.

We all knew there would be consequences for it. So, MLS suspended and fined him. US Open Cup suspended and fined him. A TON of people weighed in with opinions and posts about it.

They showed the highlights over and over again.

Cool Clint, drops this on the social networks – twitter and the facebook – I havent checked his gram yet, but this is perfect.

If you know me, you know why I love this. So many layers.

Listen :: “HOT TAKEDOWN” Podcast about USWNT

Filed under: Women's World Cup

Kate Fagan Neil Paine and Chadwick Matlin from fivethirtyeight hit up a few topics including the Women’s World Cup, the NBA and A-Guez the baseball player.

Allison McCann stops by to discuss the winners and losers of the WWC group stage, how this World Cup may be proving some parity in women’s soccer and some correspondence stuff with Kate Fagan from Edmonton, Alberta, after the U.S. women defeated Colombia.

I suggest that you start with and stick with the entire pod becuase its good, but feel free to skip straight to the soccer stuff which starts around the 7m mark.

Subscribe to this HOT TAKEDOWN podcast if you are a pod head like me. They are really smart and really good all the time.

Drake in “Obey Your Thirst” DOCUmini from the FADER and Sprite

Filed under: Culture & Lifestyle, Documentary, Interviews, Music

Coming up in Toronto, people told Drake to move to New York if he was serious about making it. Instead, he stayed where he was and made history by proving that if you’re a truly multi-layered artist, you can make it from anywhere. “Do it the way I did it,” he says in the above Obey Your Thirst documentary. “Do it from where you’re at. If you have the music, that’s all it takes.”

In a rare interview, Drake sits down and speaks with The FADER in a series of videos called “OBEY YOUR THIRST.” This is part 1.

Looking forward to this series. I often say that I think Drake is one of the greatest artists in the history of music – DEFinitely rap. I love this kid. And, he has it “figured out.” His mindfulness and awareness of who he is, is incredible to me.

As far as rap is concerned, what he has done is crazy. Let’s be honest guys, Toronto wasn’t a hotbead for music before Drake was around. Now, it is. Strictly because of his influence… and he put on an entire city, and they are at the top of the heap right now.

Love the argument that he isn’t competing with other rappers, but he is competing with the people that he and other rappers have inspired who are working hard every single minute of every day to take you from that spot.

Really interesting dude man.

Super duper Toronto accent as well. Never really heard him be all the way Canadian like that.

Snoop Dogg as Didier Drogba – Random Soccer

Filed under: Didier Drogba, Random Soccer in Random Places


A photo posted by snoopdogg (@snoopdogg) on

I put this in the Random Soccer in Random Places category but the more I think about it, this is not so random.

Snoop is a noted soccer guy, at least as far as wearing jerseys is concerned, so its no real surprise that his social media team (one of the best in the business) photoshopped him on a Didier GALATASARAY kit.

Didier reposted it. That’s where I spotted it.
