Where to talk Soccer?

The 2018 World Cup begins in just two days! Some MeFites are going to VERY excited to talk about the games at length, and some MeFites are going to be VERY eager to not see every second FPP be soccer-related. [more inside]

World Series on Fanfare?

Is there a possibility that we could have some open threads on FanFare for the upcoming World Series? There are several teams in the mix to this point whose participation could be historic, so interest will quite possibly be higher than ever. I think we did the Olympics and the World Cup, IIRC, so this wouldn't be unprecedented. Is that a thing we could do?

I hate football, but...I love fantasy football. Who's in?

Looking to set up a MeFi fantasy football league, but first I want to see if there is even any interest in losing to me. What do you say? Is anyone ready for a lesson in humility? It's fine if you don't know much (or care much) about football, but please be committed to sticking with it for the whole season. Please let me know if you have any questions.

World Cup matches as FanFare?

When looking at this deleted post that hit my RSS feed, it made me wonder why the new FanFare feature (love it, btw) wouldn't be perfectly appropriate for discussion of World Cup matches, even while in progress? [more inside]

The sport of kings

This week on Slate's Hang Up and Listen podcast, hosts Josh Levin and Mike Pesca debate what is and isn't a sport.
Pesca: If you wanted to have a thumb-wrestling league, and you wanted to have real criteria, and you wanted to rank people on the internet, then it could be a sport tomorrow.
Levin (laughing): Anything that you rank people on the internet is a sport.
Pesca: Metafilter is a sport.
(Relevant portion at the 29-minute mark.)

Michael Vick posts

The Michael Vick plea is a pretty big deal. He's probably going to be banned from football. Why all the deletions of the Michael Vick FPP's? This is, if not on the same level, at the least very close to Pete Rose being banned from baseball. Plus the juicy dog fighting thing, of course. The deletions seem really administrator-specific. Though you may not like sports, lots of people on Metafilter do.

A game I could play

SWIMMERS UNITE? I was looking over at the side and see that MeTrain is one sport short of a triathalon. We wouldn't really want to start till September to make it a full month, most likely, but is there any interest?
