But I’m always a little worried when I’m about to try out the latest edition. Back around 2004, they changed the game big time and we had a disaster on our hands. The gameplay slowed to a crawl and I didn’t enjoy it as much as previous editions. The franchise eventually rebounded and I grew to love FIFA again, but I still hold my breath each year until I get my hands on the new one.

I had no need to worry. Yesterday the Wizard (Gary Gramling) and I got to battle each other on an early build of FIFA 13, due out this fall, and the new version was solid.

As I turn on SportsCenter at 7:00 in the morning, highlights from the Lakers-Thunder game flash across the screen. When an interview with Russell Westbrook comes on, I almost laugh out loud at his glassless red plastic glasses and tight-fitting polo shirt covered in tiny fishhooks. What a joke! Athletes make millions every year, but dressing themselves like this definitely doesn’t show it! More »
