Team USA Loses a must win against team Canada in a terribly played game by team USA

Team USA came out strong with a Ryan McDonagh goal 4 minutes into the game, assisted by Patrick Kane, and Derek Stepan. But after that Canada scored two quick goals from Matt Duchene and Corey Perry and another one later on from Duchene again. After those three goals it was like USA did not want to be there. USA for some reason did not have their mind and body on the same page (paraphrased from Brett Hull of ESPN).

This USA team was supposed to be built to beat team Canada, they were built for grit to counteract the skill of Canada, and even T.J. Oshie said “if the game was 100 percent talent Canada wins, if it was 100 percent grit we win” but USA showed almost no grit in the game and a couple of question where was Jack Johnson and Brandon Dubinsky who actually plays for Tortorella in Columbus and where were players like Keith Yandle, Phil Kessel and Charlie Coyle, and Kevin Shattenkirk.

Team USA managed a lousy goal with three minutes left in the game and then did not build on that and jnow they are going home except they have to stay and play another game agaonst Czech Republic on Thursday.

If you wish to watch USA Suck then here is a recap.

Mayweather VS McGregor-Brawler or Boxer?

 

Almost two weeks from now the fight everyone is waiting for will be decided. Taking a closer look at Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, we can almost decide now for ourselves.  But let’s humor ourselves and look at the tale of the tape and you can comment below on who you predict to win.

Defense– Advantage Mayweather.

When he retired in 2015, Mayweather owned a boxing-best plus -24.5 plus/minus rating per CompuBox. He landed 43.4 percent of his punches. His opponents landed only 18.9 percentage to Fight Metric, McGregor has defended only 57 percent of strikes during his UFC career, worst of any current male champ

Endurance- Advantage Mayweather

In 49 fights, Mayweather has only 26 knockouts. He has made it look easy-going through 12 rounds in his last 7 fights. Every bout but one has been set for the championship distance.

Mcgregor has finished half his bouts inside the opening round. He has only fought past the third round once.

Durability- Even

Mayweather has only been knocked down once. McGregor, well, he has a beard don’t he?

Speed- Mayweather

Mayweather has always been known for his quickness of hands and feet. Even at age 40 in his final fight; his speed and reflexes were on spot.

McGregor isn’t so quick. His speed his by deception. He is fast because he knows his opponents next move and gets in their head.

Power– McGregor

Yes McGregor. The KO power of his left hand has made him millions with 85 percent of his wins coming from knockouts.

Mayweather’s KO rating is only a 53 percent. Power his not his game and his last knockout came in 2011.

Experience- Mayweather

He has seen it all. Bronze medal in 1996 Olympics. He has faced almost every big name of  his time and done so in the most crucible of the sport’s biggest stage.

McGregor has roots in Ireland’s Crumlin Boxing Club. He has always felt comfortable in the pocket, but now, he is fighting under different rules.

Does Conor McGregor have what it takes to go the distance against one of the best boxer’s ever? Can Floyd Mayweather survive the McGregor’s powerful left hand and avoid an early knockout.  If the bout goes past the few rounds, I would put my money on Mayweather for sure, but then again, have you ever seen an Irishman fight? It is going to be one heck of a fight that I think both fighters are going to know once and for all what they are really made of.
