| Soccer Board|| Are American players good enough? - crazy4lsu on 1/13/14 at 11:04 am|
So with the news that two of America's best players have returned to the MLS to ply their trade, I think we should ask this question seriously. My inclination is to say that our best players are only good enough for mid-tier European sides at this point, and more often than not, they are barely good...

I suppose the early favorites are Spain, Germany and Holland.
I think this might be the year Germany gets over the hump. Spain will be really good, but their performance will all depend on their ability to get the correct balance, as they have a plethora of world class central players, and not e...

I like the M Class Mercedes. It's at the top of my price range, though, and it'd be hard to justify the expense since my commute is less than a mile and I won't be using it all that much except for long trips.
Anyone have any experience with these models? The Honda CR-V, Toyota 4Runner, Mazda CX...

Based on Christoper Isherwood's 1962 novel, this film follows the day of a man who recently lost his lover.
Stars Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, and Matthew Goode. I thought this film was beautifully shot, but it sacrificed a tight narrative as a result. It could have been great if it was able to ...

Everton up 2-0 on Man City at half. Everton have played pretty well, and scored fairly early into the game. Man City has dominated possession but Everton is playing everyone behind the ball so they aren't exactly finding space. Interesting game so far....
