Sport: Here’s to the Overdogs!

In sport, it might be impossible to talk about the overdogs without paying some attention to the underdogs. Underdogs are those at a disadvantage and as a result, are expected to lose. It is common for the neutrals – those who have no loyalty to any of the competing sides in a match – to take sides with the underdogs and this is easily understood from the standpoint that: The neutrals don’t want their own teams to share bragging rights with another big or rival team.

Let’s Talk about Sports Gambling

Cup Final Weekend: Five Takeaways I Got

Major cup finals were on show this last weekend as England, Germany and Spain played host once again to some fantastic football on display. France and Scotland also had cup finals to negotiate but I think many of us could have predicted Celtic and PSG winning their games (even though Barcelona was also another obvious favourite). It was a great football weekend, and even better for me because of the following reasons: Wenger Got to Stick It To His Critics…Again Going into last weekend, I read so many previews for the FA Cup final and trust me, any Arsenal...
