It’s that time of year. The newest version of FIFA is about to release and you know what that means: time to argue over player ratings. The full player ratings database has not been released but they have released a smaller “Top 1,000” database. I’ll update this post as EA publishes the rest. UPDATE: EA has released the full ratings database.
Jon Arnold reached out about who is the best player in CONCACAF right now. With seasons all but over, I thought about who I would name the CONCACAF Player of the Year. This season has a couple of favorites but for me there is one player that is above the others: Raul Jimenez.
Todo Sobre Camisetas and FootyHeadlines have a great track record of leaking kits from all around the world. I believe they even leaked Mexico’s 2018 World Cup jerseys in January 2017. Even with all that evidence, I am praying to the kit gods they are wrong with this leak.
This week saw the release of Episodes 3 and 4 of The Last Dance AKA the Dennis Rodman and Phil Jackson Episodes. Anytime Dennis is involved, there is bound to be some shenanigans. His episode did not fail to deliver and I loved how the episode ended. While Phil’s episode gave you insight in how Phil managed players and why players loved playing for him.
With no sports to keep us entertained, I’m sure we have all dipped into the deep cuts of the many streaming services we all subscribe to. There’s only so many times you can re-watch “Tiger King.” Luckily, The Last Dance is helping but waiting a whole week to watch the next episode has become a foreign feeling for most of us. To help fill those hours in between work Zoom meetings and Trump giving out incorrect medical advice, I’ll try to give you suggestions on what to binge next. First up is the Spider-Man cartoons from the 90s. It first premiered in the fall of 1994 and is currently available on Disney Plus.
After a couple years of anticipation, ESPN’s 10 part series on the 1997-1998 Chicago Bulls has arrived. It was moved up to April after being originally set to air during the NBA Finals. All I have to say is: thank you. There has been no new sports content in weeks and what better way to end the drought than with the greatest NBA dynasty. Am I biased? Of course. Like Obama, I was also a resident of Chicago during this run. I remember watching MJ’s fadeaways, Pippen’s dunks, Phil whistling from the bench and of course, Rodman’s color changing cups from McDonalds. I had high hopes when this documentary series was announced. Did it deliver?
