ESPN+ Is Worth Your Money

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. They were hoping for a full replacement to ESPN & ESPN2 but that’s not going to happen as long as ESPN keeps getting subscriber fees from cable companies.

No longer is it rare to turn on your TV early Saturday or Sunday morning and see a Mexican National team player playing in a European league.

My Cerveza is Half-Full


“Mexico crashes out of the World Cup”

“¡Fracaso para Mexico”

“Round of 16 Curse Continues”

All headlines I’ve seen since Mexico lost to Brazil. This doesn’t include all the memes on social media. I’ve kind of grown numb to the over reactions around El Tri. It’s hard not to. EVERYTHING gets blown out of proportion with this team. Continue reading

Si Se Pudo

I’m writing this the day after the game and I still can’t believe Mexico pulled it off. They executed a perfect game plan and stuck to it for all 90 minutes. So how did Mexico pull off the upset and become the first CONCACAF nation to beat Germany at a World Cup? I try to dig a little deeper.
