USWNT striker Christen Press has become the first active athlete to contribute to FOX Sports’ @TheBuzzer, the network’s digital sports series.
“Working with such a cool digital series like @TheBuzzer was such an attractive opportunity for me and I am so thrilled to be a part of it,” Press said. “It’s great that I get to talk about the sport that I love, being on the other side of the camera, and help it grow in a new and different way.”.
From the Fox Sports press release:
Press makes her @TheBuzzer debut as an embedded correspondent with the American Outlaws in Pasadena leading up to kickoff of the CONCACAF CUP between Mexico and the United States on Saturday. She also joins forces with Pilar Perez from FOX Deportes to set the scene on the field prior to the historic showdown as the rivals prepare to battle for a spot in the prestigious 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, and is part of FS1’s special 90-minute pregame show live from the sold-out Rose Bowl beginning at 5 p.m.

With about one month left until the United States and Mexico face off in the biggest international soccer match on American soil this year, Mexican TV station TV Azteca has already dialed the troll meter up to 11. In a pretty awesome promo for the Oct. 10 match, a Rose-Bowl-hosted winner-take-all contest for a bid to the Confederations Cup, the TV station juxtaposes comments from Donald Trump’s speech on immigration with shots of some of the best soccer players Mexico has sent to MLS and images of past U.S. soccer failures against Mexico.
Heading to Vegas for the holiday weekend?
You might want to check out the new exhibit unveiled Thursday at The Mob Museum titled “The Beautiful Game Turns Ugly.”
“This exhibit is ripped right from today’s headlines about the globe’s most popular sport,” said museum Executive Direcor Jonathan Ullman.
From the press release:
The display provides an incisive and eye-opening look into the rampant corruption that plagues the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), the organization that runs international soccer. Through photographs, media clippings and cover stories and expository narrative, the Museum’s new FIFA exhibit gives a breakdown of the kickbacks, secrecy and match-fixing associated with the scandal.
And if you haven’t been to downtown Vegas lately, you might want to check it out — it’s a lot more interesting than the Strip and is slowly being transformed into a destination.
Here’s more about the museum from their press release:
The Mob Museum is a world-class destination in downtown Las Vegas dedicated to the thrilling story of organized crime and law enforcement. It presents an exciting and authentic view of the Mob’s impact on Las Vegas history and its unique imprint on the world. True stories of Mob history are brought to life in a bold and contemporary style via engaging exhibits, high-tech theater presentations and more than 885 artifacts, the largest collection of Mob and related law enforcement memorabilia under one roof.
