Featured Member- Lava1964 I was born in a small Canadian city in 1964. I am unmarried. Miss Right has not yet come along. I'm beginning to think she never will. As a kid, I loved acquiring knowledge on a variety of topics, hence my love of trivia. My father got me interested in history by making me watch documentaries when I was eight years old. I am truly grateful he did this. I developed my own passion for sports history. My favorite sports are baseball, boxing, tennis, hockey, football, and soccer. Baseball is far and away my favorite. I live and die with the exploits of the Boston Red Sox. (I was a Red Sox fan long before it became fashionable.) I played fastpitch softball as a kid when that was a popular pastime in Canada. I was a second baseman: Good glove, weak arm, decent contact hitter, not much power. I normally batted second. I have been a softball umpire since 1978. Last time I counted, I had worked over 2,300 games. I've always loved words and the English language. Its possibilities are truly limitless. I modestly say I am a writer of some repute. I began writing pieces for sports encyclopedias at age 19 and really haven't stopped penning sports articles since then. I used to write a weekly sports nostalgia column for a local newspaper. I allegedly had half a million readers at one time. (My column ran for five years before a dim-witted editor took over the sports department and dismissed all the freelance columnists and replaced them with hand-picked toadies. Accordingly, I have put a curse on him and his family. I've had three books on baseball history published. All have received kind reviews. I still write the occasional piece for nostalgia publications. If anyone is really interested in my stuff, I sell collections of my columns on demand. My books are available through mail order from my publisher in North Carolina. I am a tournament Scrabble player and official. I have an expert rating (which I am quite proud of) and I'm usually ranked in the top 40 in Canada. I help run a local club and local tourneys, and, for some reason, I am much in demand to officiate and organize tournaments in many places. Scrabble has allowed me to travel to Las Vegas, Reno, Phoenix, New Orleans, and this summer...Orlando. It's nice work if you can get it. It must be my aptitude for organization which I acquired from both my parents. Scrabble is quite a diverse and odd subculture. Nevertheless, my best friends are Scrabble players. The game helps me retain what is left of my sanity. Along those same lines, I enjoy all competitive endeavors. I always play to win. This is why I love game shows too, I suppose. Occasionally I do real jobs too. I've been a private tutor since 1994. My students think I'm brilliant. I always try to live up to their expectations. I think I have a good sense of humor. It's a hybrid of American and British mirth. I especially love puns. I am cuddly.

Gordon Banks Save Arguably the greatest save in the history of soccer: England's Gordon Banks thwarts Pele of Brazil at the 1970 World Cup tournament. (For you non-soccer fans, you might have to watch it four or five times to realize what an incredible athletic feat this truly was!)

Soccer Riot By Remote Earlier tonight Steve commented on the craziness of soccer fans. Here's a clip from Moscow that proves it. A riot breaks out at a stadium where there's no game taking place! The supporters are watching a match on television!

Christmas Truce 1914 One of the most remarkable incidents in history was the impromptu truce that took place on the Western Front on Christmas Day 1914. Beginning late on Christmas Eve, the entrenched British and German troops began serenading each other with songs and carols. By the next day a full truce was on, with soldiers and officers from both sides fraternizing and exchanging gifts. There was even an international soccer match played with teams comprised of warring soldiers. On December 26, 1914 the First World War started again. How sad. Ninety-four years later, in 2008, soldiers from the same opposing regiments reenacted the famous Christmas Truce in the same location.

Stuart Pearce Redemption PK It is virtually unknown in the United States, but this is one of the great redemption moments in all sports: Stuart Pearce's penalty kick at Euro '96. At the 1990 World Cup tournament in Italy, England lost their semifinal versus West Germany when Pearce failed to score in a penalty shootout. Six years later, when England hosted Euro '96, the England-Spain quarterfinal went to a penalty shootout. Despite the baggage from his 1990 failure, Pearce bravely volunteered to take one of England's penalty kicks. His reaction upon scoring ran the gamut of emotions.

95000 Sing Youll Never Walk Alone One of the most spine-tingling things you'll ever see (and hear) at a sporting venue: 95,000 fans in Melbourne, Australia sing You'll Never Walk Alone just before a friendly soccer match between Liverpool F.C. and Melbourne Victory F.C. in July 2013. The song begins at about 1:59 of this video. Liverpool won the match 2-0.
