    If Mexico can do that against Germany, I gotta think they can do the same or better to South Korea. Will be fun to see how far they can go.

    For the first time in World Cup history, VAR (or Video Assistant Referee) technology was used to overturn a call on the field. And as you can guess, the crowd for the team that got the overturned call (Australia) did not appreciate it.

    Raises a good debate, do you think VAR is good progress for the World Cup? According to the CNN article, it's supposed to be used this way:

    At the World Cup, VAR technology is only used to correct "clear and obvious mistakes" -- to allow or disallow goals, award or deny penalties, show or rescind red cards, or correct instances of mistaken identity when a referee disciplines the wrong player.


    Though I think since it's so new and every single call in a game is so important for teams to possibly advance that fans are reacting really strongly one way or another. I think this is basically the same as instant replay in leagues like the NFL and NBA. But I might be missing something. Is there something inherently different about this system; why do the call it VAR instead of instant replay? Is it because it can only be used in certain situations?

    Iceland and Portugal for sure. Also Costa Rica and Brazil. Mostly because they are soccer cultures to me. So I always like to see them on the field.

    That wasn't even close either. Congrats to Nadal. One of the greatest ever.

    2nd time this has happened in 40 years. Forgot to add that. Bob Baffert has to be going crazy right about now.

    3 years ago, American Pharoah did it. And now Justify becomes the 13th thoroughbred in 100 years to win the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes, to become the Triple Crown Champion in horse racing.

    That was a tense race to watch. Justify had the lead from the very beginning and NEVER lost it. It seemed like a few times he miight lose it. But it was never really that close.

    I'll add a video of the race once NBC uploads it on Youtube.

    It's one of the rarest feats on all of sports. Was really cool to see.

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

    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 should all be aware it's going to happen. And honestly be happy he gave them their first NBA title before he left again. I don't think they will riot. The coach isn't great and the other players on the team aren't good enough to help Lebron win it all. Plus they have no money to go out and get another good player. Lebron only has like 4 good years left. He should leave, in my opinion.

    As for the Warriors, they can absolutely keep it going. And I would be surprised if they don't.

    That 2008 Tiger win at the US Open was bar none my favorite day of watching golf. I would honestly love to see him have some kind of a repeat of that day. He has it in him to rise to the occasion like almost no golfer that's ever lived. So I hope he contends. It's tough competition though, and like you said, he has been through so much in the last decade. Odds are against him. But he is getting better. So I'll be watching and rooting for him.
