ESPN Doing A ManningCast For Golf — Now Do Soccer You Cowards

For those who follow American handegg, Peyton and Eli Manning’s “ManningCast” of Monday Night Football was a huge hit last year, offering fans a different way to watch the NFL. ESPN simultaneously broadcast a traditional broadcast with announcers talking about the game, but for those tired of the usual commentating tropes or less invested in the action, the ManningCast on ESPN2 provided an excellent alternative focused more on entertainment than pure football.

The18 Imagined A World Where The MetroStars Still Existed; It Went Downhill From There

What if the MetroStars still existed with their name and logo? What if the New York Red Bulls were as much a figment of our imagination as the U.S. winning a men’s World Cup?

Hatters, Terriers, and Star Players: Previewing The Championship Playoffs

By Championship standards, the end of the 2021-22 regular season was rather anticlimactic. There were no relegation deciders as in 20-21, and no dramatic fights for automatic promotion like the year before.

Crazy Free Kick Saves Coventry Women From Relegation In Final Minute Of Season

A club on the brink, a season-long comeback and one spectacular last-minute goal; during the past six months, Coventry United Ladies have endured a lifetime's worth of drama.

In mid-January, Coventry was 10 points below the relegation line in the FA Women's Championship — England's second tier — the result of a struggle that began before a single match was played.

From Banshees To BigFoot: The Best Names Of Defunct American Soccer Teams

What is a Xogg? Alternatively, what is a Zigg? The Xoggz and the Ziggx were the men's and women's semi-pro soccer clubs based out of Columbus, Ohio, in the mid-1990s.

According to fossilized internet forums (because there is no other discussion of the topic), these were made-up names that were going to be assigned meaning through a fan contest. Unfortunately, neither club survived long enough for that to happen.

While these clubs were short lived, their rise and fall illustrates the state of American soccer in the 1990s.
