Ok, not everyone likes sports, but being at a big stadium with loads of people watching something the whole world pays attention to is a great experience for everyone. Looking around you and feeling the unity among the fans usually puts a smile on faces of even the most bored people. And it doesn’t mean that there have to be loads of people. Players of any basketball team that were [...]

I have never heard anyone who has tried skiing say they don’t like it. This is one of the activities that grabs you completely and before you know it you are a ski junkie. But, that doesn’t necessarily mean that every skier is good at it. No, some people are too afraid to do any high-speed runs even years after they started skiing, or they simply enjoy more relaxed forms [...]

Making any kind of good top ten list is an impossible job. Depending on the topic, it can be more or less difficult, but in sport, there is one thing that makes it even more difficult.

Recently NBA has decided to try and put a stop to flopping in basketball. Flopping is an American expression for when a player attempts to deceive the referee and convince him that the opposing player has committed a foul, when there in fact hasn’t been one. Football already punishes simulators.  Yellow card is the least you can get when your acting skills are not good enough, but, since the sport [...]

Maybe it was time someone started paying a bit more attention to flopping, but the witch-hunt that is on at the moment may be a bit too much. Floppers have been known to use their ‘’skills’’ to turn some games, and last season talks about that became ever-present. David Stern recently commented that flopping was used to fool the referees and that it was not a legitimate play in his [...]

After three rivalries in football (soccer), we move to American football. The NFL is one of the most watched competitions in the world, and especially so in the USA. There are many different opinions about which the biggest rivalry there is, but the one you most hear about is Cowboys-Redskins.
