To add to all the racist stuff happening here in America, apparently a Brazilian soccer player named Dani Alves gets bananas thrown at him during matches he plays in Spain. And not when he is the away team, he literally plays in Spain all the fucking time, for Barcelona. I understand it is despicable what Donald Sterling said but the second someone throws a god damn banana at a minority athlete there will be riots in the fucking streets all across this county. But in Spain the guy just bends down and gets a delightful little snack during his match. Good for him



I love this list because it always makes me laugh. GMs and Executives always think they are so fucking smart signing someone who has a big year or two to a decade long contract where the biggest pay days are WELL past their primes. Let’s break down some of the more interesting people on the list.
Floyd has basically dominated the list every year since Tiger got divorced.
Crisitano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi being 2nd and 3rd makes since because people who have never watched soccer know how good they are. Simple as that, worldwide stars.
Aaron Rodgers being the highest paid football player may not seem right to some people but I don’t mind it. 40 million for last year is a little nuts for on the field performance but he is the face of the NFL. He is the future and he will be a/the top QB for years to come.
Matt Stafford, Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco being in the top 10 is fucking great. These are the guys who cashed in on a few good years (only Flacco has anything to show for it) and are now banging the buttholes of their teams cap limits. Good job boys.
The Phillies have 3 guys in the top 25 and they are in last place. I honestly don’t think Ryan Howard and Cliff Lee even play baseball anymore and I refuse to look it up for the correct information. There are 6 guys above anyone on the Yankees at all so all those “you buy your players” people can suck a dick under a bridge. (Thank God A-Rod is suspended and doesn’t count)
Gilbert Arenas. He may not be in the top 25 total but he is the 3rd highest paid NBA player and WASN’T IN THE LEAGUE. There is always someone like that and this time it’s Gilbert. Play on playa.


Nike- The U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team will compete in Brasil this year in a bold and deeply patriotic new away kit. The new away jersey has a modern crew-neck collar and consists of three bands representing the colors of the American flag. The base color of the jersey and the cuff of the sleeves feature a prominent red. The upper torso and top sleeves include a bold blue tone, and a white chest band extends over the middle of both sleeves.
Well I guess one way to get American’s to give a shit about soccer is to make the jerseys identical to a favorite treat from our collective childhood’s. I personally am not a huge fan of these simply because it doesn’t strike feel into the heart of the opponent. I want there to be a very realistic, very large graphic of an Eagle killing a lion or something to that affect. Make them FEAR the US before we get knocked out in the first round!

PS What’s the deal with calling it a kit? It’s a fucking uniform, straighten up Nike.
