A New Year, A New Blog by Brian Thornton

by Brynn Murphy on January 16, 2012

It's a new year. 2012. The year in which the world will end according to what I hope is an unpopular social interpretation of the Mayan calendar. But John Cusack was the bomb in that flick yo…not to mention his other numerical masterpiece, 1408, naturally. Will he ever outdo himself in High Fidelity or Being John Malkovich? Minus a time traveling hot tub…I think not. Enough cinematic babel. It's a new year and this is a new blog. My first blog ever and I'm certain to take some heavy fire from a particular blogging friend of mine who I have constantly ridiculed for ...

Champions League by Ryan Millar

by Brynn Murphy on January 12, 2012

It has been a great December and beginning of January for my club team here in Russia.  Over the holiday season, we won for the second time in a row the coveted Russian Cup.  With this win, we automatically qualify for a spot in next seasons Champions League.  For a team that is playing in its first Champions League this season, the opportunity to play two years in a row is quite the accomplishment.  I want to congratulate all my teammates and coaching staff on playing so well and working so hard.  We had a nice Christmas dinner (you have to realize that Christmas i...

World Cup by Ryan Millar

by Brynn Murphy on December 21, 2011

The World Cup is over and now it is back to our professional teams. Some guys actually flying from Japan to their respective clubs. The tournament did not go as we all would have liked unfortunately. We ended up losing some costly matches early in the tournament against Brazil, Russia, and Italy. Those losses pretty much sealed our fate of not being able to qualify for the Olympics there. The tournament was long and grueling as expected. Each day becoming more difficult than the next. We ended the tournament with a few wins against some good teams like Argentina and Cuba.
