Between The Posts: Finally

Lars Baron

Your nightly OT open thread!

Since it's the start of the World Cup this week, I think it's more than fair to talk some soccer. After years and multiple reports of corruption, FIFA president Sepp Blatter has been told to step down in 2015. FIFA has suffered major reputation damage during his run at the top, and it seems the chiefs of the organization have finally had enough. As a fan of the sport, I say "about time". The Quatar selection for the 2022 World Cup is going to rightly be investigated, though a lot of the damage is already done.

One of the NFL's most annoying players will grace the cover of Madden. Richard Sherman was selected to be featured on the cover of Madden NFL 15.

My question for the night: who's your pick for the World Cup? Personally I have to go with the Germans this time around, but there are more than a few teams who can make some noise.
