The Full Video Of Taylor Twellman's Rant Will Make You So Mad You Could Spit

Normally I do not care much for Taylor Twellman as a broadcaster. He sounds like he's arguing with a vaery angry invisible person all the time. However, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that I also think Twellman does good things. His work in concussion prevention is admirable. And then there was the rant Twellman went on after the USA's elimination from World Cup qualification.

I have never seen anyone that angry be that articulate at the same time, so kudos to Taylor Twellman. He said it better than I could have.

Fox Sports, Visa And Coca-Cola All Hit Hard By USMNT World Cup Failure

$400 million. That’s how much Fox Sports paid to wrestle the English-language World Cup broadcasting rights away from ESPN.

Welcome To The Nightmare: USA Reacts To Being Out Of The World Cup

The nightmare is real. Three days before Friday the 13th and a few weeks before Halloween, U.S. Soccer completed its horror-show qualifying campaign with a 2-1 loss to Trinidad and Tobago in Cuovo, eliminating the Americans from the World Cup given the results elsewhere in the CONCACAF Hex. With Honduras beating Mexico 3-2 and Panama edging Costa Rica 2-1, the U.S. fell from third to fifth place. 

Peru Captain Scores 76th Minute Stunner, Will Play New Zealand In A Playoff

Peru haven’t qualified for the World Cup since 1982. Now, they will have a chance to play their way into Russia 2018 after qualifying for a playoff spot vs New Zealand. The hero for the Peruvians? Their captain and all-time leading goalscorer Paolo Guerrero. In the 76th minute the 33-year-old ripped a free-kick from 23 yards out and the Estadio Nacional de Lima let out a cry heard across South America.

Lionel Messi Nets Two In Eight Minutes, Gives Argentina 2-1 Lead At Half

You know what Kobe Bryant once said: “You shake a tree and a leopard is gonna fall out.” Well, Ecuador shook the tree. Ecuador's Romario Ibarra netted a nifty little goal off a couple of give-and-go headers and La Albiceleste were off to a nightmarish start. Then the leopard fell out.

Lionel Messi is the leopard. Messi went on to score two goals just eight minutes apart (12’ and 20’) to give Argentina life on the last day of this crazy CONMEBOL qualifying campaign.
