Brazilian club Corinthians debuted a major innovation in their match against Fluminese — their sponsor on the front of the Corinthians jersey would be revealed by the players sweating on the field. It is a pretty neat and interesting way for a sponsor to be shown off to the rest of the world.
When we think of Barcelona, we think of the way they play and some of the greats that have donned the blue and red stripes — Lionel Messi, Ronaldinho and Johan Cruyff. But what you didn’t know was that once upon a time, Barça was a team full of savages and psychopaths (including Cruyff). Don’t believe me? I don’t blame you, but take a look at this video showing the European Cup (as it was known before it became the Champions League) semifinal match between Barcelona and Leeds United in 1975.
Twitter Goes Ballistic On Sepp Blatter After He Tweets To A Baby Saying FIFA Shouldn’t Sell Out Football
Sepp Blatter is a douchenoggle, I believe we can all agree on this.

One of the most annoying things in soccer is when you get subbed off, especially when you feel like you still have a lot left in the tank. However, in recent years we have seen managers haul off players before halftime, or even just after substituting them on the field (Emmanuel Eboue against Wigan in 2008, anyone?).

I was on my hands and knees inside a walk-in freezer 40,000 feet above sea level, searching for a cake that never had a good chance of being consumed.
Until Rodriguez struck, West Brom parked the bus and the stomach grumbles of UAE's dignitaries called for an ice cream cake frosted City blue.
