If you don’t know about the ‘Golf Boys’ by now I suggest you hop on the golf cart. They run this sh … short game!

The group consists of professional players Hunter Mahan, Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler and Ben Crane. They debuted their first video last year (that’s a one-hot-video-every-calendar-year-average) and have come back strong with ’2.OH’.

They clearly got some writing help on their newest joint which features veiled references to other pro golfers like Tiger Woods (heard of him?), Adam Scott (you haven’t heard of him), Jason Day (no way you’ve heard of him) etc … etc …

For 2 minutes and 58 seconds, golf is like, almost semi-cool-fun-in-a-kinda-funny-way … almost.

Maurer

See House Hunters Episode HERE

This is a bit old, but still worth 91st Minute analysis. Professional soccer player Jimmy Maurer went on House Hunters last year to document his move to play with Club Deportivo Universidad de Concepcion.

It was an especially dramatic boring episode that peaked during a final debate with his wife that went something like this:

 

Jimmy: “I think the smaller apartment and better location would just be better for us.”

Wife: “I think you might be right.”

Now THAT’S great television!

Baby Jimmy scores a goal and returns to his Jurassic Park bedroom set. The end.

Rachel Price

Rachel Price was a former Top 100 standout, WNT youth player and Eckerd College freshman who was tragically killed in an auto accident on Thursday, February 28. The crash also claimed the life of 19-year-old Jamaree Cook. Friend Adriana Rodrigues, who played alongside Price in a Florida summer league, shares Price’s legacy as a competitor who stood tall in the face of adversity.

 

For Rachel Price, athletic abilities and talent were never to be questioned. The high school Player of the Year and member of the U18 U.S. National team was on her way to an amazing future in soccer.

Her entire career could be summed up by a title she earned as ESPN Rise winter all-star list. A star on the rise and on the road to her dreams, a 47-year-old man accused of drunk driving on a different road took those dreams away before her 19th birthday.

A young woman who had so much potential and such a limitless future ahead of her, has been taken leaving us with the memory of her journey to be retold, her determination to be admired and her story to be remembered.

Rachel’s story inspires each one of us. Being diagnosed with Lupus her senior year of high school, Rachel lost her D1 scholarship and gained an obstacle she’d have to face every day and every time she stepped onto the field.

But that didn’t falter her dreams, her ambitions and the pursuit of her goals. She joined Eckerd College and as a freshman became the youngest player ever to travel on the Tampa Bay Hellenic W-league and WPSL.

Rachel refused to stop before a game was finished; she flirted with danger with every match she played, literally leaving it all on the field. She overcame multiple barriers playing with Lupus, but always played until the very last whistle, never wanting to quit.

Her amazing strength and persistence, her dedication and commitment, her character and her fight will be with her teammates, family and friends in a spirit that will never stop inspiring them, and will never be forgotten.

The US continued its strong start at the Four Nations Cup by blasting Sweden 6-0 in La Manga, Spain.

Morgan Marlborough, who will be making her debut for Santa Clara this season as a transfer, led the way with two goals though there was plenty to go around. The US squad will conclude play against England on Monday.

Ali Krieger will be one of the familiar faces suiting it up for the new National Women’s Soccer League. Krieger is undergoing a ton of changes, actually, having returned from playing professionally in Germany while working her way back from a serious knee injury last summer.

Oh, not to mention a brand new national team coach. Krieger addresses it all above. Lots of adjustments, but one thing remains the same: she still looks fantastic, doesn’t she? (Cut to you nodding).

Someone mention supporter sections? No one compares to these Korean fans who created a human jumbotron out of the passion they had for their team.

I don’t even want to know how long this took to rehearse or what happened to the guy who kept screwing it up (there’s always one). I’ll just enjoy the fan-sanity of what just happened here.

DC United

With the start of the MLS season just around the corner, I’ve decided to take a look at the top supporter groups that MLS teams have to offer. There is nothing like sitting in one of the supporter sections as the atmosphere is unlike anything else in all of sports. With tifos, flags, banners and chants (among other things), these fans make the stadium atmosphere difficult for opposing teams to play in.

 

DC United-Screaming Eagles/Barra Brava

Both The Screaming Eagles and Barra Brava have been with DC United since it’s inception in 1995 and have grown to over 1,000 members. The Screaming Eagles reside in “The Nest” and “The Aerie” which occupies sections 132, 133, 134 and 139 of RFK Stadium, while Barra Brava take up sections 135 thru 138.

Barra Brava is the first group to use Tifos (see above for an example), which are commonly seen by fans in Europe and South America. They bring the fierce passion of South America and apply it in our nation’s capitol, standing and chanting for the full 90 minutes.

 

Portland Timbers- Timber Army

Formed in 2001/2002, members of the former “Cascade Rangers” and other Timbers supporters joined forces to create the fierce Timber Army. They can be found in section 107, also called “The Woodshed”, of Jeld-Wen Field. Applying the use of banners, scarves, flags, tifos, chants, smoke, flares and assorted instruments, the Timber Army are one of the most passionate and visible supporters sections in the MLS.

 

Seattle Sounders-Emerald City Supporters

One of the largest supporters groups in MLS with more than 3,700 members, Emerald City Supporters were formed in 2005 and continue to grow to this day. Cheering from the General Admission area of Century Link Field, the ECS occupy the top and bottom sections of 121-123. A unique thing about the ECS is that they also act as an “umbrella organization” for smaller subgroups such as 509 Prime and Fog City Faithful, among others.

1916_Team_Photo_original_large

U.S. Soccer is going all white. In celebrating 100 years of existence, the federation has unveiled a new kit that salutes the traditional look of yesteryear.

Whereas last year US Soccer unintentionally celebrated “Where’s Waldo”, our striped friend clearly wasn’t around in 1913 (Or WAS he? Maybe we just couldn’t find him) so he didn’t fit in to the new look.

Here’s Nike’s description of their new design:

The shirt uses a solid white design with obsidian blue collar and sleeve detailing. The V-neck is noticeably wide and deep to match the 1913 kit … a standout feature of the new kit is the crest. The enlarged crest’s 13 stars and 13 stripes replicates the motif of the 1913 kit and symbolizes the first American flag of the original 13 colonies..

More photos of the new look after the jump.
