Anyone Left?

He wont be wearing that this Summer…

If you’re a fan of Mexico, you will notice several national team stalwarts missing. Some due to injuries, others for personal reasons and one because he pissed off the new coach…

Hot Toys Iron Man Mark IV (Diecast) Review

I typically write about sports, mostly soccer on my blog but I am switching it up today. I am a huge Marvel fan and have had my eye on the Hot Toys line for a while but never pulled the trigger on buying their figures. However, that changed when I ordered the Iron Man Mark IV figure from Hot Toys last month. After End Game, it seems a lot of people are looking to make their first purchase and have some questions. I try to answer some of those questions in my review of the Iron Man Mark IV.

Mexico FIFA 19 Ratings

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. Mexico players have been getting more respect from EA Sports. Gone are the days when the highest rated Mexican is in the mid-70s. While many players play multiple positions, my list will focus on what FIFA 19 has as their “best” position in the game. (Except for Layun, I looked up to see what his rating was as a left back.)

It has been a long time coming but ESPN’s attempt at a direct to consumer streaming network is here. Unfortunately for some, it was not what they were hoping for.
