If you've been paying attention to the pandemonium in Brazil, you might notice this football-mad country is pretty damn mad about some football, namely the World Cup (the Rio Olympics aren't helping either).

Ketchup and mustard kits aside (no corner taken on color richness), this little clip from Aruba has so much going for it. From the mere fact it's a goalkeeper goal, to the Marco Tardelli-esque celebration of unadultered joy and childlike innocent, to the complete meltdown at the end by the ...
Watching sports interviews, no matter the sport, is like watching a cheating husband attempt to deflect questions. The actual question is answered roughly three percent of the time. Brendan Rodgers somehow manages to do the same when it's a 9 year old firing the hard-hitters his way. Almost as though ...
