    Mexico has defeated Germany 1-0 in this year's first major upset. I wouldn't even call it a stretch to say it's one of the World Cup's largest upsets of all time. The 22-year-old fan favorite, Hirving Lozano scored Mexico's winning goal right at the 34th minute mark, and El Tri held strong to take down the reining champs. You can bet on Lozano getting much, much more popular after this. He'll be looked at as a god after today.

    After the first half, Germany tried it's hardest to take control of the match. They fired 26 shots at goal, while only 9 of them even came close. Seemed like they were genuinely shocked at Mexico's lead and crumbled under the pressure.

    Congrats, Mexico! You deserve it!

    I'm one for leaving most all changes out of major sports like this. I especially don't like that they seem to be testing this tech on the largest stage possible. Why not start off using it on the playoffs? There will be riots in the streets if a bad call is made using this.

    Sports keep getting all this new tech/rules that's making the games less fun. I don't really see this as a big deal change wise at the moment, but I do see this eventually leading to a type of technology driven referee system. That just doesn't sound as fun. Referees play a really big part in all games.

    It's always so weird to me to see how much other countries care about soccer (football), especially when talking about Costa Rica and Brazil. They are absolutely INSANE about their teams. We care alot about our sports here in America, with the NFL leading the way, I think. But even if we took all of our passion for all sports and doubled it, we wouldn't even come close to their level of passion for just one sport.

    I wonder why it's soccer in particular that they feel this way about.

    At first I thought it was pretty insane to see two Triple Crown champions, let alone two so close together. But I guess it's not so rare. It groups together like this every so often. Take a look at the years:














    Looks like we're due for another win this coming year or next year. But with that said, it's still super impressive. I wonder how much money Baffert made off just these three races.

    Definitely they cannot. I would be shocked if Lebron stays in Cleveland after that finals series. Was super obvious to everyone that as great as he is, he can't beat a super team like the Warriors alone. Unfortunately for the Cavs, all they have is Lebron to count on. Once he leaves, they will go back to being a team that can't even make the playoffs.

    Real question is, where do you think Lebron will go? Seems like the Lakers might get him. I would like to see him with the 76ers.

    Also, congrats to the Warriors. They really do have a super stacked team and proved even in a year where they didn't play their best at stretches, they still are extremely hard to beat, even for just a single game. Almost impossible right now to beat in a 7 game series. If everyone stays, it's hard not to see them winning at least a few more in a row.

    Oops, my bad. I meant can the *Warriors keep this up.

    Also, really good points on LeBron. Can you imagine how pissed off all of Cleveland is going to be if (when) James moves to the Lakers? There will be riots.

    They've done it! The Golden State Warriors have defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-85 for the NBA Championship. This gives them their 3rd title in 4 seasons. I was pretty shocked to see the Cavs get beat so badly in this one. I totally expected around a 10 point spread, at the very most. I figured they'd come back strong later in the game, considering Lebron and the Cavs are known for being a dominant 2nd half team.

    The Cavs were only ahead once the entire game, and that was only by 1 point. This must be pretty devastating for Lebron, he doesn't take losing very lightly. Curry was on point the entire game though and had a total of 37 points. But as it were.... he still did not get Finals MVP. That's disappointing. I genuinely think he deserves it. But it's hard to argue with them giving the award to Kevin Durant. He absolutely killed it, finishing the game with 43 points. Yep, he definitely should hold the honor.

    I wonder what the Cavs are going to do next year. Can they keep this up?

    The Washington Capitals have defeated the Vegas Golden Knights 4-3 to win this year's Stanley Cup Final! After a disappointing 6-4 loss in the series opener, the Capitals went on a 4 game streak to claim their first Stanley cup in franchise history. This was definitely one of my favorite match-ups to ever watch. With the Cap's story and everything the Golden Knight's went through with their very first year in the NHL, it made for a super compelling series.

    Congrats to the entire Capital's team, but Alex Ovechkin takes a special place in the ranks. He has finally gotten the playoff MVP Conn Smythe Trophy. He deserves it. He is absolutely one of the most well-rounded players I have ever seen.

    It'll be super cool to see what the city does when the team brings the Stanley Cup home. After all, it's the first major sports title for them since the Redskins won the Super Bowl 26 years ago. When sports victories are few and far in-between for a city like that, it builds up some insane celebrations.

    Can't forget about the Chicago Blackhawks when talking about dynasty runs. That was something to behold when living in Chicago. The Stanley Cup has to be just as hard to get as the NBA title, if not more difficult. But the playoffs are set up so similar that's it's basically just about comparing the two sports.

    As for the Warriors, I can definitely see them keeping this up for a few years to come. They just keep trimming the fat while simultaneously fine tuning their team.

    I don't want to talk about the Patriots : |

    This is absolutely a race people should want to watch. It'd be so cool to see Justify win the Triple so close to American Pharoah.

    Ok.... I actually feel really bad for LeBron now. He absolutely carried the Cavs through that game. All to have it basically handed away in the last 10 seconds by a teamate who doesnt even know the score of the game. That must be incredibly frustrating.
