Although soccer is not the dominant sport in the United States there can be no denying that the World Cup has a certain gravitas that is incomparable with any other sport. Sadly so are the prices to fly out there and watch it in person.
Luckily though, TitanBet are actually employing. The bookmakers are looking to send one lucky person out to Brazil to work for them. The job, which isn’t far off being the best job in the world, pays a £4,000 salary, and travel, accommodation, and a Go Pro camera are thrown in to boot. All they ask for in return is a few tweets, which you’d be doing anyway, a couple of blogs, and a few pictures, that really is easier than taking candy from a baby.
In order to stand a chance of nabbing the job you need to come up with a video, no longer than a minute in length, that shows off your presenting skills and originality.
When you are happy with your video simply put it on YouTube and post the link onto the TitanBet Facebook page for all to see.
While you may not see it being played at the Olympics any time soon, a brand new game is injecting the recreational sporting community with a jolt of new life. What is often lost in the competitive nature of many sports is the notion that the games we play are supposed to be fun. It does not seem to be often that we notice any real innovation in the way we play sports. Outside of a few minor rule tweaks here and there, sports have remained mostly unchanged for quite some time now. Kids and teenagers are most commonly found playing soccer, baseball, or basketball whereas adults are found around the golf course and tennis centers. Luckily that is changing thanks to the innovative team at BubbleBall. Their new game, Bubble Soccer, is a new version of America's most popular youth sports and the worlds favorite game. Bubble Soccer is put simply a game of soccer between teams of individuals squeezed into inflatable upper body bubbles, don't get it? Check out this video…
David Moyes' side have only managed to win one of their last four games at Old Trafford, losing to West Brom and drawing to Southampton in recent results.
United currently sit eight points behind league leaders Arsenal.
The Red Devils' form in the Champions League has been far better of that in the Premier League, and after beating Real Sociedad 1-0 on Wednesday night one more win will see them progress to the knock-out stages of the tournament.
Wayne Rooney who celebrated his 28th birthday on Thursday has warned his teammates there is no room for error as they prepare to face Stoke this weekend.
We hope to take this momentum into Saturday.
We have been too inconsistent. We have to get that consistency about our game and hopefully this win is the start.
Stoke is a massive game for us. We are already a few points behind in the league so we can't drop any more at this stage. We need to make sure we get that win we need.
Manchester United's Javier Hernandez says he is happy to fight for this place at United, but admitted he may have to eventually depart from Old Trafford in order to become a regular starter.
The 25-year-old Mexican international joined United in 2010 and has struggled to establish himself as a regular starter. He has been eased back into David Moyes' plans after the summer's Confederation Cup by starting two games this season.
He scored the winner against Liverpool at Old Trafford in United's third round Capital One Cup game.
Chicharito enjoyed a reputation of a poacher and impact player when under Moyes' predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson, he is still determined to change that perception as he wants to secure a starting role with the Premier League champions.
I strive for that. I am working towards that, earning a spot as a starter. I know that my performance on the pitch will allow me to achieve that goal someday either here or elsewhere for any other club.
I am going on four years here and really, like I have always said, I am happy to be able to play for one of the best clubs in the world, doing my best every single day to earn more minutes on the pitch.
Manchester United vice-captain Patrice Evra says it was a 'huge loss' to the club when Paul Pogba left the Old Trafford outfit for Juventus.
The 20-year-old French international who has represented his country at first team level 3 times, scoring 1 goal, left Old Trafford on a free transfer in the summer of 2012.
Pogba felt ex-Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson hadn't given him a chance. He revealed the occasion when Rafael and Ji-Sung Park got the nod ahead of him in midfield, as Carrick had to play at center back was the time when he knew his United career was going no where and he wanted out.
When speaking to French TV channel TF1 Pogba said:
I said to Ferguson: Play me, and I will show you if I'm ready or not'.
Against Blackburn, on December 31, 2011, I was on the bench. Ferguson puts Rafael in midfield with Ji-Sung Park. Then I gave up. I was really bummed.
Patrice has since said his regret at Manchester United not holding onto his French team-mate. Both players are in the French squad for their upcoming games against Australia and Finland.
