2016 has been an epic year in Basketball!


Andy Murray- Wimbledon Gentlemen’s Singles Champion 2016
I wasn’t really thinking to much about the previous matches that I played against anyone. I saw this more as an opportunity to try to win another Wimbledon title. I was still as nervous as before any of the other Grandslam finals but I stuck to my game plan very well today and played well from the front pretty much the last 3-4 weeks and that was the same again today. I wasn’t really thinking too much about the previous experiences I’ve had. I was trying to find a way to beat Milos today.

Marco Reus for Sport Bild (03.06.15)
  • Sport Bild : Mr. Reus, you have just lost the third final with BVB in Berlin.
  • MR : Of course the disappointment is huge. We desperately wanted to win this cup and couldn't do it. But to say that I or we can't win titles is complete nonesense.
  • SB : But still a fact....
  • MR : In these finals we never played against easy opponents. And to be honest,all 3 finals could have ended differently. For example if I would have made the 2:0 - the game would have taken a different turn.
  • SB : What was wrong?
  • MR : Maybe I thought too much in that moment. One thing's for sure, it has to go in - no matter what! I just have to make it, then it's 2:0 and the match takes a different turn. But all in all we can play better.
  • SB : You have just extended your contract at BVB until 2019. Do you regret your decision?
  • MR : I regret nothing, why should I ? I thought about this decision long enough and I still support this decision. I want to win titles with BVB and I am sure that we will succeed in doing this in the next few years.
  • SB : Did BVB lost quality compared to Bayern and Wolfsburg?
  • MR : We really should talk about Bayern right now, our season was too bad to do that. There is going to be a change in summer at our club, a new coach is coming, some things are probably going to change. But it's also a new chance. I am sure we will have a team with high quality in the upcoming season - that's what the responsible persons promised me. It's then up to us that we will hold something in our hands again.
Historico Lucho

Luis Enrique, in 50 games as coach of Barça, has achieved the best fifty-game start for any coach in Club history. Luis Enrique has even outdone past coaches Helenio Herrera and Pep Guardiola.

In fact, Helenio Herrera won 40 games of his first 50 games -two less than Luis Enrique - plus 5 draws and 5 losses. 
Pep Guardiola, meanwhile, recorded 37 wins, 8 draws, and 5 losses - identical to what Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino achieved in his first 50 games as coach. 
Johan Cruyff, who coached FC Barcelona from 1988 to 1996 and won 11 titles, had 31 wins, 13 draws, and 6 defeats in his first 50 games as FC Barcelona’s manager.

Luis Enrique has accumulated 42 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses in his first 50 games, scoring 143 goals and conceding just. 
Overall, Lucho has 25 victories in La Liga, 9 in the UEFA Champions League and is a perfect 8/8 in the Copa del Rey.

Comics to Read Today, April 1

This week is a short one for me as DC gets ready for their Convergence event and winds down their regular books 

It ends today. And it was just the right ending. It winds up stories, hints at new stories and everyone loves Batman.

The first arc ended last week but this is a one shot to tie into End Game and OMG that cover.

This got better from the first issue, no?

The $3.99 cover price kept me away but I was able to pick up a few issues on sale of this title and I’m glad I did. Peggy and Howard and Immonen for the win. Also that is totally looking like Lauren Bacall on the cover.

Mad Men is back soon so it’s retro all around!

What’s on your your list?

Brady leads Patriots to fourth Super Bowl title with 28-24 win over Seahawks

Tom Brady and the Patriots made this Super Bowl all about football, not footballs.

Clutch football, spiced by a sensational fourth-quarter rally and a goal-line, game-saving interception.

The record-setting Brady threw for four touchdowns, including a 3-yarder to Julian Edelman with 2:02 remaining Sunday night as New England rallied from a 10-point deficit to win its fourth Super Bowl in the Brady-Bill Belichick era, 28-24 over Seattle.

But the Patriots (15-4) had to survive a last-ditch drive by the Seahawks (14-5), who got to the 1, helped by a spectacular juggling catch by Jermaine Kearse. Rookie Malcolm Butler stepped in front of Ricardo Lockette and picked off Russell Wilson’s off-target pass to complete one of the wildest Super Bowl finishes.

Brady leaped for joy on the Patriots sideline after Butler’s interception.

“It wasn’t the way we drew it up,” said Brady, who won his third Super Bowl MVP award.

Brady surpassed Joe Montana’s mark of 11 Super Bowl touchdown passes with a 5-yarder to Danny Amendola to bring the Patriots within three points.

Seattle, seeking to become the first repeat NFL champion since New England a decade ago, was outplayed for the first half, yet tied at 14. The Seahawks scored the only 10 points of the third period, but the NFL-leading defense couldn’t slow the brilliant Brady when it counted most.

It didn’t matter how much air was in the balls, game Brady was unstoppable when the pressure was strongest. While pushing aside the controversy over air pressure in the footballs stemming from the AFC title game, the Patriots toyed with Seattle in the final 12 minutes.

Seattle didn’t quit — it never does — and Kearse’s 33-yard catch with 1:06 remaining got it to the 5. Marshawn Lynch rushed for 4 yards, then backup cornerback Butler, who was victimized on Kearse’s reception, made the biggest play of his first NFL season with 20 seconds remaining.

Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin was ejected in the final seconds for instigating a near-brawl, delaying the celebration for the Patriots.

Soon they were mobbing one another on the same field where their 2007 unbeaten season was ruined in the Super Bowl by the Giants. They also fell to the Giants for the 2011 title.

But thanks to superstar Brady and the obscure Butler, they are champions again.

Brady now has equaled Montana with four Lombardi Trophies and three Super Bowl MVPs. He stands alone with 13 Super Bowl touchdown passes. He was 37 for 50 for 328 yards against the NFL’s top-ranked defense.

He also was picked off twice. Brady had been intercepted a total of two times in his previous five Super Bowls.

Yet, he picked apart the Seahawks on drives of 68 and 64 yards, solidifying his legacy as one of the greats of the game.

His heroics offset those of Chris Matthews, one of Seattle’s least-used players before the postseason. Matthews recovered the onside kick that helped the Seahawks beat Green Bay in overtime for the NFC crown, and had a breakout performance Sunday.

Having never caught a pass in the NFL, Matthews grabbed four for 109 yards and a touchdown. Lynch ran for 102 yards, but didn’t get the ball at the 1 on the decisive play — a decision the Seahawks will rue.

on May 24 Cech played his final game for Chelsea, at home to Sunderland at Stamford Bridge in a 3-1 win. The goalkeeper had a vital role last season, playing 15 games in total when Thibaut Courtois suffered a couple of injuries and a mid-season loss of form. He has played 485 games for Chelsea, winning four titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups, the Europa League and the Champions League


There were celebrations this weekend for the Cadete B (U16 team), who defeated Vilanova i la Geltrú 5-0, which coupled with the 3-2 defeat of Reus at Sabadell was enough to clinch the title. The side coached by Cristian Catena have only lost two games all season (to El Prat and Tarragona) and are now six points clear of Reus Deportiu with five games still to play. With a 107-21 goal difference, their biggest win of the campaign was 9-1 against Tortosa.
