    What happened to Brazil in WC 2006

    Ok, no one gives a damn anymore, but still, I think it's worth a thread. Ricardo Teixeira, Brazilian FA eternal president (he's been re-elected again, and is set to be president until the 2014 WC if Brazil is chosen as host - he was first elected in 1989) was reported by Brazilian newspaper O...

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/6675363.stm We all know Brazilian football is a joke, but the media is mad about Romario's "1000th goal", scored last night against Sport Recife at Vasco da Gama's stadium. Ok, he's a legend, a top class striker, no one can say he wasn't at least...

    F1 Discussion Thread

    Ok, after two races this year it looks like Ferrari's pre-season advantage seems to be lost, or at least it looks like the McLarens have caught up with them. Lewis Hamilton, what a driver... made Massa look like a fool in Malaysia, bright future for him, no doubt.

    Volleyball World Championship 2006

    Congrats to Russia on their win. Fantastic final match on the women's competition (Men's start tomorrow). Very close match, any side could win it at the end. Still sad to see Brazil losing it like that... from 13-11 in the tie-breaker to 13-15... felt a bit like Athens 2004... Still...

    Tevez

    Where's he heading to? He missed training yesterday, and hasn't showed up today. Rumours have it that he's in Argentina, packing his bags to move to Europe. His honeymoon with Corinthians has ended a while ago when supporters "sieged" his car when he was going out of a match. Then, with...

    Brazil vs. New Zealand [R]

    Half time, 1-0 Brazil 42' Ronaldo, after great work by Kaka down the right wing. At 44' Ronaldo missed when one on one with the keeper by shooting at the post. So far, nothing really interesting. Brazil only threaten when attacking down the flanks, especially with Kaka and Cafu down the...
