    World Cup Noisemakers: South Africa’s Vuvuzela V. Brazil’s Caxirola

    With the FIFA ban on the mind-numbing drone sound of the Vuvuzela, Brazil debuts the maraca-like Caxirola, only to have it banned from stadiums too after angry fans threw theirs on the field in 2013 competitions. While both “instruments” are equally banned, are they equal when it comes to sheer cheering bliss?

    Tale Of The Tape: Better Sports Region – Boston Vs. Bay Area

    It looks like Boston and San Francisco (the Bay Area, really) are among the U.S. finalists to bid for the 2024 Summer Olympics. LA, DC and San Diego are also in the mix, but were guessing the USOC is going to go for a winner, and if you’ve been watching sports over the last decade you know that those other cities can’t compete. So which team is the better sports town? That’s this week’s Tale of the Tape.

    Bocce V. Curling — Obscure Sports With An Evangelistic Fan Base But Which Is Better?

    With the annual Madden-Mariucci “Battle of The Bay” Charity Bocce Tournament today, our crack web team decided to look at the nature of the “sport” of Bocce (yeah, I put it in quotes, get over it), and other sports where the object is to get an object as close as possible to another object. And, we love any “sport” that can feasibly be played with a burger (or beer) in one hand.
