Don’t Torture Yourself Watching The Winless Lions On Thanksgiving, Instead Watch These Exciting Soccer Games

One of the great Thanksgiving traditions — other than your annual Turkey Derby — is watching American football teams you don’t care about. Typically, you couldn’t pay someone to watch a Detroit Lions game, but on Turkey Day it just hits different. This year the Lions are so horrendous that we at The18 recommend these soccer games on Thanksgiving instead.

Raiders Receiver Henry Ruggs And Chelsea’s Alonso Committed The Same Crime — Yet One Still Plays

Sports fans across the U.S. were appalled by news on Tuesday that Las Vegas Raiders receiver Henry Ruggs III drove drunk and crashed into a car going 156 mph, killing a woman and her dog. What sports fans may not know is that one of Christian Pulisic’s Chelsea teammates committed a similar crime. Did Marcos Alonso kill someone? Let’s compare the Ruggs and Alonso situations.

The Best (And Worst) Of Celebrities Who Dressed As ‘Ted Lasso’ Characters For Halloween

To no one’s surprise, Ted Lasso costumes were some of the most popular outfits for Halloween this year. One of the best shows on TV (or whatever you call Apple TV+), “Ted Lasso” inspired everyone from little kids to celebrities and politicians to dress up as characters from the beloved series. 

Who wore it best? Who wore it worst? Here are our favorite — and one least favorite — Ted Lasso costumes from Halloween this weekend.

NFL In London Might Be Weird But Not As Bizarre As Finding Out Christian Pulisic Is A Jets Fan

The NFL playing regular season games in London will always be weird to me. British fans were given a real treat on Sunday when they got to watch the frail Atlanta Falcons play the even weaker New York Jets at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The one bright spot of the game was we found out what NFL team Christian Pulisic supports.

Pulisic is a Jets fan!

What The World Looked Like The Last Time The USMNT Beat Mexico

The U.S. men's national team defeated Mexico in a highly contested match on Sunday to win the CONCACAF Nations League, marking the country’s first competitive victory over its rivals since September 10th, 2013.

The fruitless streak continued so long that I personally graduated middle school, high school and was just one year away from graduating college before the U.S. was victorious again. Christian Pulisic, the American captain who scored the go-ahead goal, was just 14 years old when the U.S. last claimed victory. 

Last Night’s Super Bowl Streaker Was Vaguely Familiar

When Ryan Succop nailed a 51-yard field goal with just under three minutes remaining in the third quarter of Super Bowl LV, the game was effectively decided in favor of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, rendering the fourth quarter into nothing more than a giant advertising exercise for Paramount Plus. 

These Days, Super Bowl Sunday Is About Football, Just Not American Football

I’ll be honest: I actually get excited for the Super Bowl. I couldn’t care less about who is playing or even who wins; professional American football is for a different type of human. But give me an excuse to eat nachos, drink beer and ironically celebrate the grotesque capitalist society we’ve created and I’m all in. So when it comes to sports on that one special Sunday, it’s soccer or nothing. Fortunately, there’s more than enough soccer on Super Bowl Sunday to fill my appetite.
