Sean Pendergast’s Fantasy Football Player Rankings

Conventional wisdom says that when the calendar hits July, we are officially into the dead period of the sports year.

Greatest performance in a losing effort: Tim Howard among best ever

The list has been an easy one — inarguable, in my opinion, for years.

Time For Perspective On World Cup Popularity

We want aggressive violent action, not the over-dramatic flopping of a four year old girl who’s overtired and cries of lifelong physical impairment because her older sister brushed flesh. Offer that girl a cookie and suddenly it’s “what pain?!” Soccer encourages this melodrama as if contact with an opposing player will require life-flight and most likely an organ transplant.
