I am SO stealing this for a FB post! Especially since FC Barcelona just won its fifth Champions League title in the 21st century.

Meanwhile, the Bolts and Hawks are all knotted up at one game apiece.

Au contraire, Father, soccer CAN be fun. Lemme 'splain.

I was at a party one night a few years back with my friend Nathan. He was born and raised in Barcelona, but went to college here in the US, and has lived most of his life here ever since. Over the years, he has aquired the ability to speak perfect American English, so much so that unless you know his background, you'd never guess.

Anyway, the party was going on, and Nathan was in full "charm" mode, entertaining an ever-growing group of men and women alike. I was at the back of the throng watching the scene with another woman who was asking me about him (we've always been friends, never dated, so I didn't mind the forwardness on her part...he kinda brings that out in people). I mentioned that he was from Barcelona and she called "bravo sierra" on me. "Oh, you don't believe me?" I asked. "Watch this."

Out of nowhere, I yelled at the top of my voice ""VIVA REAL MADRID!"

The place grew silent. Nathan turned toward the offensive sound, with a scowl across his lips and a murderous glare in his eye, until he saw my evil grin. :mrgreen: Then he cracked up. ::): I shrugged my shoulders, cocked my thumb at the other woman and said "She didn't believe me that you were from Barcelona. I had to prove it."

I should've made a bet. :wink:

The teams in the College World Series:

Florida, Arkansas, Virginia, Miami, LSU, TCU, Vanderbilt, Cal State Fullerton.

Florida has to be salivating at the prospect of winning both the CWS and WCWS in the same year. Has any school ever done that?

btw...in other american ninja warrior news, the darling of the sport, whom i highlighted in my video, did not make it through the prelims last night... she failed on a new station... that is the one thing i have against this competition...the challenges change from city to city...so it's luck of the draw as to what you're gonna get depending on the city in which you compete... istm that since all those who qualify go to the championship in vegas and compete on the same course , all of the competitors trying to get there ought to also compete on the same course :hissy :rant :rant :rant

This may come as a shocker but UCLA has only won the men's CWS once ... in 2013. And the UCLA women did not make the WCWS that year :fyi:

Compared the champions tables on Wikpedia .... it does in fact appear that no school has ever won both in the same year.

In fact if Florida wins it would be their first ever win in the men's CWS, in addition to being the first school to win both in the same year.

i was only guessing them because i knew ucla women were a perennial powerhouse..i just assumed the men might have slipped in there on occasion... the same argument might have been offered for az ... though i am not aware of the az men ever being a regular participant

Blackhawks have a chance to win the Stanley Cup on their home ice tonight. If they win, it would be their first clincher in Chicago since 1938.

And I read an article on ESPN yesterday that mentioned when they won in '38, the Cup wasn't even in the building! The Maple Leafs were so heavily favored that year, the NHL President just sent the cup to Toronto. Oops.

how often do you win more in side bets than you do for winning the tournament itself?

jason sobel from espn made this observation

Quote:
On this date 15 years ago, Tiger Woods won the U.S. Open by 15 strokes. Now he’s trailing by 15 strokes and losing to a 15-year-old.
