Tonight saw Liverpool achieve a 3-2 UEFA Champions League group stage win over Paris Saint-Germain, in what was once again a magical night for European football at Anfield. It all ended in very exciting fashion, with a final sequence that inspired debate on social media.

Reds forward Roberto Firmino came back from injury and off the bench to score a game winning goal in injury time, with an eye-catching (pun intended) celebration. When the cameras panned to the Liverpool bench reacting to Firmino’s goal, the response from winger Mo Salah got people talking on social media.

Roberto Firmino was a doubt entering tonight’s 3-2 UEFA Champions League group stage win over Paris Saint-Germain, but he exited as the headline story. That’s because the Brazilian, who didn’t come on in until the 72′, scored the game winning goal and then stole the show with his post goal celebration, which poked (pun intended) fun at the frightening eye injury he suffered this past weekend.

Buffalo Bills, Arizona Cardinals Early Favorites to Be Picking #1 on Draft Night

With the Cleveland Browns markedly improved in 2018, and thus likely to vacate their traditional spot in the National Football League’s overall basement, who will supplant them as being first overall on the clock come NFL Draft night? There’s a reason that the one movie that was ever made about the NFL Draft centered around the Brownies, but in 2019, they will almost certainly not be picking first.

There are four early contenders to take the top pick, and all of them are franchises that have endured a lot of losing lately. Yes, the NFL is a league where revenue sharing and overall infrastructure invites parity and quick mobility up the standings, but the league has seen remarkable consistency at both ends of the spectrum.

After bagging a hat trick for Chelsea this past Saturday in a resounding 4-1 win over Cardiff City, Eden Hazard drew heavy praise from his manager Maurizio Sarri, who said the Belgian could score 40 goals this season.

Hazard, who is clearly much better suited to the Sarri system than to the tactics of predecessors Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho, is playing at an all world form right now, which has social media users in awe.

Cubs-Red Sox World Series? New Book Focuses on When it Transpired in 1918

Share

september 1918

The team with the best record in baseball, by a substantial margin, is the Boston Red Sox at 103-47. Naturally, they’re a very good bet to represent the American League in the World Series next month. As of this writing, the team with the best record in the National League is the Chicago Cubs, so maybe we could see a Cubs-Sox Series in October?

It happened once before, and it was exactly 100 years ago, so what an amazing story it would be to see a centennial rematch; especially so given how both teams were just five outs away from reaching the fall classic in 2003. That autumn, both sides came remarkably close, but neither was able to get over the line.

Florida State Seminoles vs NIU Huskies Game Preview, Prediction

Share

The Northern Illinois Huskies have arguably the nation’s toughest non-conference schedule this season, and next up is a trip to Tallahassee to face the Florida State Seminoles. The voyage to Doak Campbell Stadium is one that has been highly anticipated ever since it was announced a couple of years ago, replacing a home date with Idaho on the schedule.

The players and coaching staff will be really amped, as evidenced by the sound bites they gave at NIU Media Day. Most importantly, this game goes above and beyond football, as it’s a money game that saved jobs at NIU

champions league

Manchester United commence their European campaign tomorrow night with a trip to Bern, Switzerland where they’ll face Young Boys. United are heavily favored in this one, but as we learned in the knockout round last season, don’t ever take anybody in the UEFA Champions League for granted.

The Red Devils have a unique opportunity here to rotate their squad at a couple positions, given a pair of players that are suspended by the FA for Premier League play, but eligible to participate in this one.

Tottenham Hotspur will be without several key players and stars when they take on Inter Milan in their UEFA Champions League group stage clash tomorrow night. Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has announced that backs Kieran Trippier and Toby Alderweireld were left behind in London, and won’t be participating in this one.

During his news conference today, he was evasive when it came to giving an explanation. It sounds like the duo are fatigued, and this managerial move is simply a squad rotation, but you never know.
