We've decided to branch out a little bit to talk about an event that only happens every four years, and one I was very excited about. We brought on two guests—Darren Page and Ethan Hammerman—to talk about soccer even though they, too, are primarily football writers.
- Play with the 538 tool! It's a lot of fun and works off of something that is historically accurate and much better than FIFA rankings, Nate Silver's own Soccer Power Index.
- There's a really fascinating New York Magazine piece on Jurgen Klinsmann that's well worth the read if you're into that sort of thing.
- Luis Suarez really does bite people (plural), in addition to being a racist and a cheat.
- The SB Nation World Cup Preview is stunning work.
