Watch Cristiano Ronaldo Break USA’s Heart With Last Second Goal

This World Cup has been topsy-turvy. Big name countries haven’t been doing so well while countries who you would already expect to be down and out for the count are progressing fundamentally well. If you missed Sunday’s match up with Portugal clashing against the USA, you missed the game that illustrates why there has been such a big flip in strength in World Cup 2014.

Everyone expected Cristiano Ronaldo to punish the USA very easily with his blazing fast speed and well precised kicks, but on Sunday, Ronaldo’s speed acted as a doubled edged sword. Ronaldo often found him self offside. He had 3-4 offsides in the second half of the game alone and in the last 20 seconds of the game and USA up 2-1 after trailing 1-0 going into the half, Ronaldo’s contribution to the team was no where to be found.

Like any hard working athlete, Cristiano Ronaldo’s determination did not falter. As time slithered away, Portugal pushed and pushed as hard as that could since a lost to USA would cause Portugal to face elimination. What happens next was simply amazing.

While it wasn’t Cristiano Ronaldo who scored the goal, it did set up the play very well. The setup is by far Ronaldo’s greatest contribution to his team since the World Cup stated. Hopefully this game will cause him to wake up and be the team leader that his team needs.

With a Portugal, team USA will face off against group leader Germany. In order to advance to the next round, the USA will either need to tie with Germany or beat them outright. If Germany ties with team USA, both Germany and the USA will be able to make it through to the next round. In the last 2 would cups, Germany has always made it to at least the semi-finals. Team USA is in need of some big plays.

Why Soccer Is So Popular Around the World and Not America

If you live in America, you may be wondering why every four years, around this time of the year, people who never utter the word “soccer” have the word in full swing on their tongues. That would be because, as of today, the international Fifa World Cup 2014 soccer tournament began and while most Americans are more fixated on the NBA finals than the World Cup matches, the rest of the world only have their eyes set on the World Cup matches.

But Why Is America Not Interested In Soccer?

What’s so important about the World Cup that out 194 countries out of the 195 countries in the world give the World Cup so much attention? After massive amounts of research and data, we’ve finally become able to deduce why soccer and the World Cup is so much more popular in every country compared to the lack of hype it receives here in America.

Soccer Is Easier To Follow

Currently, the three most popular sports in America boil down to Baseball, Basketball and Football. Each sport have their own set of rules and guidelines that, if not known and understood, can make following the game really difficult. If we had to rank those three spots in order of hardest to learn to easiest to learn it would be football as the hardest, baseball as the easier sport and would end with basketball being the easiest one to follow.

Compared to America’s big three, soccer is a no brainier. All one has to do is sit down and watch 11 players on their favorite team get the ball into the goal without using their hands. Occasionally, a player may knock another play over and a red card may show up and cause a player to be ejected from the game. The time on the clock never stops which makes it that much easier to follow. To put things simply, people will typically enjoy what they can understand and soccer is no excuse.

Soccer Requires Very Little Start-up Money

Not ever nation has the wealth that America does. As a result, it’s become a common practice for the less fortunate countries to invest in activities that do not require a high start up cost when it comes to the youth development of athletes. Soccer is no exception from this practice.

According to Desert News, “Alta High reported the highest optional costs at $830. Head coach Bob Stephens offers a summer camp at Snow College for $290, weekly team meals for $90, summer weight training for $80, a fitness class for $35″. Personally, I had to shell out 375 for my football program in New York City. From equipment rentals to jerseys and camp, Football is really expensive to play.

On the other side of things, Soccer has a relativity low cost. The basic equipment needed for practice is a field or lot, a soccer ball and 4 poles to formulate a goal post. With such low operating cost, it’s no wonder that so many countries around the world would rather participate in a sport that on average only sees one person score a goal per game.

Mila Kunis Speaks Out Against Men Who Say “We Are Pregnant”

These days, couples share so much. They share their foods with one another, they share their beds with one another, but apparently, according to Family Guy’s and That So 70s Show’s Mila Kunis, one thing couple can’t share is pregnancy.

Mila Kunis appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live where Jimmy was asking her simple questions in regards to maintaining her work life while being pregnant. Joking around, Kimmel stated that babies are much harder to deal with once they come out since they are a lot louder than when they are in the tummy. After which , Kimmel mentioned to Mila Kunis that he and his wife were pregnant as well. At which point, Mila already had enough; she stood and gave one of the most awesome speeches regarding men who say “we are pregnant” and it went a little something like this:

“Hi, I’m Mila Kunis with a very special message for all you soon-to-be fathers. Stop saying we’re pregnant. You’re not pregnant. Do you have to squeeze a watermelon sized person out of your lady hole? No. Are you crying alone in your car listening to a stupid Bette Midler song? No. When you wake up and throw up, is it because you are nurturing a human life? No, it’s because you had too many shots of tequila. Do you know how many shots of tequila we had? None. Because we can’t have shots of tequila. We can’t have anything! Because we’ve got your little love goblin growing inside of us! All you did was roll over and fall asleep! You’re not pregnant, we are!”

Shut up Meg
Shut up Meg

Sadly, the whole time I was watching the beautiful Mila Kunis, I could only say to myself “Shut-up Meg”. Be sure to watch the video and check out Mila Kunis’ next animated film coming out later this year staring Mila Kunis, T.J. Miller and Bob Odenkirk.

First Tebowing…Now Lebroning?

In case you missed it, a little more than mid way though the 4th quarter, when the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs had the game just about tied up, the unthinkable happened: Lebron suffered a major cramp due to the fact that the AT&T Arena’s air conditioning units went out of whack. Lebron tried to come back into the game as San Antonio started to take a commanding lead over the Heat and eventually won the game 95-110 but not before Lebron had to be carried off of the court in the fashion of that of a king. The results? The start of a new trend called Lebroning.

Even the guys over at that totally non-biased news station, Fox, got in on the fun.

One of my particular favorite acts of #Lebroning comes from a trio, two of which are seen in a Spurs Jersey carrying out a young lady wearing red in the manor that Lebron was carried out during game 1 of the NBA finals. But my personal favorite? That award goes to whoever Photoshoped Lebron out of the picture and put Peter Griffin in his place.

Check it out:

Cool enough, Lebron has already issued a response in regards to his cramping up during game 1. His words, via Twitter were “The body just decides to shut down. I’ve hydrated as much as I could, to the point where your stomach feels like you can’t take it anymore”.

The best part about all of this was that Gatorade’s Twitter account joined in on the fun on Lebron James who is an endorser for rival sports drink Powerade. “The person cramping wasn’t our client,” the @Gatorade Twitter account wrote. “Our athletes can take the heat.”

Lebron’s response was simple and effective: “I really don’t care what people say about me, I don’t care about that sports group, the drink group that I’m not even going to say their name,” James said dismissively. “I’m not going to give them a light in The Finals. This is about the Spurs and the Heat, and it’s not about everybody else. I don’t care.”

Live-Action Version of Beauty and the Beast Coming Soon

Who doesn’t love a good old school movie like Beauty and the Beast? Everyone loves these old school animation movies compared to the latest editions Disney has been pumping out. Heck, even the less popular Disney movie, Maleficent, scored big by bringing in $170 million at the global box office. So it only makes sense that Disney wants to cash in on one of their more popular movies, Beauty and the Beast which has already generated $375 million worldwide since it was released in 1991.

There’s no coincidence that shortly after Maleficent’s box office success that Disney is now pushing for Beauty and the Beast. Both Maleficent and Beauty and the Beast was written by Linda Woolverton. Sadly, the movie is set to be directed by he Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn’s Bill Condon. As a result, we expect to see glittery variations to the usual and norms that we associate with the original Beauty and the Beast movie.

As of this moment, there’s no cast relating news to the movie. However, in other Disney related news, there’s also talk about Cinderella, directed by Kenneth Branagh, and The Jungle Book, directed by Jon Favreau will be making their way to the big screen in a live-action fashion.

With the exception of being directed by Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn’s Bill Condon, I am actually looking forward to checking this movie out once it hits the DVDs. I feel the same way about Cinderella but I will probably go and spend my hard earned money and actually check out The Jungle Book. Maybe it’s because of my childhood attachment to the series or perhaps because it isn’t a movie largely about a damsel in distress and will probably be the closest thing to a Tarzan movie for the next few years.

Justin Bieber Raps About Killing Ni**gas In Order to Join KKK

Justin Bieber has done an insane amount of crazy things since his fandom exploded. However, it seems that the YouTube famous pop singer’s roots are ladled with his extraordinary ability to do things that should end his career, but never does. In this particular instant, Justin Bieber is knowingly recording a song that has the well versed lyrics of “One less lonely n—-r,” and, “If I kill you, I’ll be part of the KKK, but there’ll be one less lonely n—-r.” You can check out the video below courtesy of TMZ.

So why is the almost 6 year old video just now making its rounds? Well, it seems someone held on to it until Justin Bieber was at his career’s climax. The video was used to extort Justin for a wad of cash that remains unknown to us. Sadly, (is it sad?), Justin Bieber never gave into the demands. Instead, he thought that the video was so harmless, that he went and released it himself. Yeah… I’m not sure what’s worse, the actual video of young Justin singing in the sweet sound of N or current day Justin Bieber seeing nothing wrong with this video.

Sadly, I doubt any of this will affect Justin’s Bieber’s reputation among those concert-ticket-buying Beliebers. They probably won’t beliebe this one. They probably won’t even admit that it’s Justin on the camera. In fact, who ever threatened to extort Bieber better start running.

What do you guys think? I feel as if Justin should find the nearest camera and come up with some type of apology. In fact, the best thing he could have done was to get on camera, show the video and apologize for it at the same time. Justin became famous through YouTube and it would be best for him to use YouTube as his method of damage control. Put your thoughts in the comment section below!

Check Out Rihanna Twerking in Nude Dress [Video]

As if showing up to the The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) in her tasteless nude dress wasn’t enough, Rihanna has returned to her oh-so-basic roots of twerking. That’s right, during a backstage reconnaissance of Rihanna’s behavior in front of a small crowd of paparazzi, Rihanna thought it best to drop that thun thun thun in a fashion that has now become a pop culture norm known as twerking. Who knew that twerking is now an acceptable way to greet people.

How WWDC Reminded Me Why I Hate Apple

I own an iPod, a Nexus 10, a Moto G and a Windows 8 device. I flat out love technology and so I’ve immersed myself in technology in order to fill my spare time with the marvels of how companies like Google, Microsoft and many more have directly contributed to the advancement of technology. If there’s anything that I hate as much as I love companies who are more concerned about the advancement of technology is a company whose only concern is to develop on their own platform to increase their profits. As I prepped myself for Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference, I was sadly reminded that Apple fits the bill of companies who are more concerned about themselves than technology on a whole.

Usually, I am unable to watch Apple’s WWDC keynote live for what ever reasons have plagued me in the past. This time around it was different. I was finally able to make the time to sit back and enjoy what I hopped to be some cool tech coming out. The first thing I did? I did a search on where I could live steam the WWDC event so I wouldn’t have to rely on the blogging of a website like The Verge or BGR.

I ended up navigating to this page. Initially, I thought to myself “well, that was easy” but it seems my thoughts were premature. As I navigated to the bottom of the screen, it read:

Apple Special Event. June 2, 2014.
Watch streaming video from this special event and learn more about our exciting announcements.

Live streaming video requires Safari 4 or later on OS X v10.6 or later; Safari on iOS 4.2 or later. Streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 5.0.2 or later.

How Apple-like. I use a major browser, one that I personally consider to be the best, Google Chrome. Even most outdated government websites allow me to use chrome to get my priorities taken care of. But here Apple is telling me that my favorite browser isn’t good enough. I’m sure that Chrome is more than capable. I honestly believe that the bigger issue here is that Apple is playing their selfish card. From a business perspective, it’s completely understandable; “we want you to use our products and our products only so we will not resort to developing for any other ecosystem”.

That’s where my biggest issue with Apple surfaces. Apple is only concerned with advancing Apple technology. Apple isn’t as concerned with advancing technology on a whole for everyone to enjoy. Google makes products for Apple’s platforms and Microsoft’s platforms. Microsoft does the same, too. Instead of simply allowing me to be able to stream from Chrome or Internet Explore, Apple not only forces me to download Safari, but they also require me to download the video player Quicktime. I didn’t even know browsers still needed video player add-ons (Chrome comes with them automatically installed).

Apple is a great company. They could just be so much greater if they shared the love around and stop being so into themselves.
