Tailgating Flashback: National Pride

With Argentina returning to the United State to play tonight, its only fitting that OTWT takes you back to the last time the South American giants visited. They played the United State on June 7, 2008, when Messi was just a little kid.

The game ended 0-0 but a rain storm late in the match added to the fun. The OTWT Tailgating Crew was there and detailed all of the fun.

Blast from the past

While watching the Kentucky/West Virginia game over the weekend, one thing kept going through my head, what ever happened to former uber recruit, Jonathan Hargett.

Hargett was John Wall before John Wall was in high school. Hargett was the type of player that was supposed to turn the 'Neers back into a great basketball program.

Hargett was amazing. He attended four high schools in four years, including stops at nationally renowned Mount Zion Christian Academy in North Carolina as a junior and National Christian Academy in Fort Washington, Md.

These are the words of The Draft Review on Hargett: "Few guards enjoyed the buzz Hargett received as he entered college. Much of this had to do with his jaw dropping athleticism and spectacular body frame. At 5-11 Hargett’s body resembled a compact linebacker. Many thought his game was tailor made for the NBA; some even thought he would be the first point guard to jump to the pros."

The so-called business end of the season in the English Premier League can be full of excitment and stress, but this tweet sums from @ManUnitedYouth sums it up best:

"This time of year is just horrible and brilliant and nerve-wracking and thrilling and sickening and incredible.
