After Escaping ‘Group of Death’, U.S. has Great Chance to Make Run

The U.S. Women’s National team managed to survive the proverbial “Group of Death” and survive is absolutely the correct for how they performed in those three matches. The U.S. didn’t exactly look like the dominating team that came so close to taking the World Cup four years ago. Yes, the defense was much improved, allowing…

Momentum Slipping for FC Dallas on Five-Match Road Trip

FC Dallas started off the season incredibly hot. Through the first three games, the Hoops scored three wins — the only team to pull off the feat this year — and after ten matches had secured 20 points. But the last four matches have not been nearly as kind to FC Dallas. In those matches,…

FC Dallas Needs Defense to be on Point to Carry the Team

Over the past year-plus, FC Dallas has become known for its flashy offense. Between Mauro Diaz, Fabian Castillo, Blas Perez and Tesho Akindele, the Hoops certainly have no shortage of highlight-real playmakers. But there’s also the saying that goes, “defense wins championships” which is true for all sports. Scoring points/goals/runs is nice and all, but it…

FC Dallas Will go as Far as Mauro Diaz Lets Them

As much as soccer is about the 11 guys on the pitch working in rhythm with each other, the offensive end of the game primarily focuses on one guy who creates chances for other guys to cash in goals. For the U.S. men’s national team, it’s Michael Bradley. For Manchester United, it’s Angel Di Maria,…

Complete Style Change for Giornalismo

So after the success of Nuovo and the JM Breaking News plugin, I’ve restarted working on Giornalismo full time. I ended up getting a ton fixed on it over the past couple of days, but no one change was bigger than the font and a slight color change. After taking a beginner graphic design class…

Continuing the Giornalismo Rebuild

So there’s not too much of an update with the themes this week. I’ve continued to re-code everything in the Giornalismo theme. Over the weekend I knocked out the header template, staying close to how things are to be done in HTML5 and what not. This week I’ve been working on the footer and homepage…

Rangers’ Lineup Could be the Most Dangerous in Baseball After Injuries

Going into this season, the outlook for the Texas Rangers’ offense was anemic. Last year was so frustrating with so many guys going down with injuries and not a whole lot of moves made in the offseason, there wasn’t a whole lot to look forward to this season. But fast forward to today, 64 games…

USWNT Needs to Find Offense For World Cup Success

The U.S. Women’s National team has amassed a grand total of four points and three goals. They were shut out in a poor offensive showing against Sweden and were lucky to get two goals against a stout Australian side. Despite the fact that they are in a good spot in the proverbial “Group of Death”…
