Jay Smooth expertly summarizes why so many of us are rooting for Marshawn Lynch, aside from the fact he’s an incredible football player.  Talk to ’em Jay.

Jason Sudeikis as Coach Lasso (NBC Sports Premier League Film)

Posted in Comedy, Sports, Videos on August 3rd, 2013 by Hyphen

Being a huge English Premier League fan, I have mixed feelings about NBC Sports acquiring the US TV rights starting this upcoming season. On one hand, at least it’s not at Fox, whose production value for FSC has always been abysmal, and being part of the NBC family should help increase the exposure to the US.  However, obviously I’d prefer the rights to be owned by my company, ESPN, plus I’m a little concerned this piece above will be representative of how they cover a foreign sports league.

Concerns aside, I LOL’d.

Dee-1’s SXSW Recap (video)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Other Peoples' Interviews, Sports on March 24th, 2012 by Hyphen

I was already planning on posting this video of Dee-1’s SXSW adventures and then I saw footage of myself guarding him in the HoopxHang Tournament hahaha.  Let the records show that Team Hardknock dispatched Team Nola in that first round game, but on the real, chopping it up with one of my favorite new MC’s was a blast.  Much respect to Dee for his music and movement.  You’re gonna hear a lot from this dude in the near future…

Robin van Persie drives Arsenal to victory over Liverpool (video)

Song’s chip over the top to RvP for the game-winning volley was reminiscent of their connection earlier to defeat Everton. Simply class.

Thierry Henry’s Top 25 Goals For Arsenal (video)

Posted in Sports, Videos on January 10th, 2012 by Hyphen

Since the living legend himself came back yesterday to score a winner for Arsenal in the FA Cup versus Leeds, I thought I’d take a trip down memory lane and post this clip of some of Henry’s best. Number 7 is one of my all time favorites, but I love them all. No matter what team you root for, you have to give credit to this man. One of the greatest strikers we’ve ever seen, with a sliding stare down goal celebration so epic, they made it into a statue:

(the Tottenham fans weren’t so appreciative…)

Robin van Persie’s perfect volley against Everton (video)

Posted in Sports, Videos on December 22nd, 2011 by Hyphen

<a href='http://video.app.msn.com/?mkt=en-us&#038;vid=db9e62f7-b3ed-4e7f-a0e1-87021f4fd24b&#038;from=&#038;src=v5:embed::' target='_new' title='Van Persie&#39;s Glorious Goal' >Video: Van Persie&#39;s Glorious Goal</a>

I meant to post this soon after it happened, but better late than never…especially for those of you who don’t follow soccer and may have missed Robin van Persie’s game winning volley for Arsenal vs. Everton. You’ll notice that US National Team goalkeeper, Tim Howard, doesn’t even move, knowing that if RvP connected as he planned, he didn’t stand a chance. What a beautiful pass from Song too. Fabregas-esque.

All Tim Tebow Does Is Win…not today though (video)

Posted in Comedy, Music Videos, Sports on December 18th, 2011 by Hyphen

ESPN’s Skip Bayless is easily the biggest Tim Tebow supporter (politest word I could use there) and while we’re all enjoying Tebow-mania, the bandwagon took a step back in to reality with today’s defeat to the New England Patriots. This video is still classic though.

Michael Essien’s 2006 wonderstrike vs. Arsenal (video)

Posted in Sports, Videos on October 29th, 2011 by Hyphen

It’s the eve of another London derby between Arsenal and Chelsea, but before I get some sleep, I thought about one of my favorite moments from this rivalry: Michael Essien’s unbelievable 30 yard strike in 2006. While the game ended in a 1-1 draw, it was one of the most exciting matches I’ve ever seen. World class talent all over the pitch, an intense rivalry, and huge stakes all culminated in this late game tying goal.  To come up from right back, where he was only filling in from his natural defensive midfield position, to slam a shot like that off the post and in…unreal.  Definition of a stunning strike.
