Martin Tyler Is A Man Of Many Talents

The Middlesex Senior Charity Cup quarterfinal tie between Cockfosters (we are not making that team name up) and Hampton & Richmond Borough last Tuesday was notable for two reasons. Reason number one it ended in one of the longest penalty shootouts we have ever heard of, with Cockfosters winning 18-17 after 42 kicks. Reason number two is Martin Tyler was there.

Now, 42 is a number of spot-kicks bordering on the ridiculous, but that's not unheard of. What we really want to know is why a Sky Sports Premier League commentator was at a non-league game.

Didier Drogba Took His USL Teammates Out On His Birthday

Didier Drogba is not above playing with US players, as the Sacramento Republic (which sounds like the name of a newspaper) found out when Drogba spent 10 days training with the team.

In 2006, Ronaldinho Said He Would Introduce Kobe To The Best Player Of All Time. It Was Messi

Kobe Bryant has retired, and as much as basketball fans will miss him and his unadulterated desire to win, we all now get to experience what I like to call “Victory Lap Kobe.” Victory Lad Kobe sells out stadiums everywhere he goes, because even the away fans of his most hated rivals still want to see the legend one in action last time.

Victory Lap Kobe has a certain appreciation of everything that’s going on around him because he knows everything he does could end up being the last time he does it, and he might not even know it at the time.

Cristiano Ronaldo's New Movie Trailer Will Give You Chills

"Senna" is one of the best sports documentaries we've seen. It holds its own in a genre that's been increasingly crowded with quality films, especially since the launch of ESPN's 30 for 30 series. 

Ostensibly, "Senna" has very little to do with Cristiano Ronaldo, but that's about to change. The team behind "Senna" has produced a documentary about the Portuguese superstar that looks at the life of one of the most recognizable athletes in the world, and how he got to be one of the most recognizable athletes in the world.
