Un’ipotetica serie tv su Gerard Piqué, e su come è diventato, in poco tempo, l’uomo più detestato di Spagna

Rivista Undici, 6 gennaio 2016 di Francesco Paolo Giordano Gerard Piqué ha una solida posizione sociale, una bella fidanzata, due figli di nome Milan e Sasha, un posto da titolare nella squadra di calcio più forte al mondo, qualche trofeo sul caminetto. E poi ha una spiccata capacità di farsi detestare. Forse giocosa, magari desiderata, sicuramente trasversale. Va al Bernabéu e lo fischiano, ad Alicante e lo fischiano, a Logroño stessa storia, a Getafe, Oviedo, León.
Ci sarebbe materiale a sufficienza per una serie tv, che potrebbe intitolarsi Piques: in spagnolo pique significa rivalità, risentimento. Per non appesantire la storia, basterebbe occuparsi di quanto accaduto nelle ultime settimane, da quando, mentre il Real Madrid a Cadice mandava in campo un giocatore squalificato, Piqué ha twittato una serie di emoji divertite fin…

Projected 2015-16 Starting Lineup: Seton Hall Pirates

By Sean Saint Jacques@SSaintj7 on Jul 29, 2015, 9:44a 

PG: Derrick Gordon
The senior is a transfer from Massachusetts and the first openly gay athlete in the history of college basketball. After all of the controversy from a season ago, it will be interesting to see if the Seton Hall players accept him. No problems are expected with the transition.
So far, many who have spoken to Gordon in interviews view him as a class act and ready for the challenge of bringing the Pirates to the NCAA Tournament as he did with the Minutemen.
Gordon’s passing ability is good, but his turnover numbers are not even close to where they need to be. The guard averaged 2.7 assists and 2.5 turnovers per game in his last season with UMass. That is roughly one turnover for every assist that Gordon dished out.
The defense that Gordon can provide will be crucial for the Pirates. This team needs to mature quic…

2015-16 BIG EAST PREVIEW - Creighton Bluejays

The Big Picture The Bluejays were in an expected retooling mode last year after the magnificent Doug McDermott era ended. They continued their emphasis on strong perimeter play last season (5 players made at least 43 3-pointers) and were much more competitive than their 14-19 record indicates. The Bluejays suffered four one-point losses and lost five more games between two and four points. Coach Greg McDermott has only one true returning starter, but he’s got many other experienced choices for his starting lineup. He can plug in a pair of quality transfers who figure to contribute immediately along with a group that includes 5 freshmen and a junior college hopeful.
Who’s Back: Forward Toby Hegner, a 6-10 sophomore, averaged 6.7 points and 3.4 rebounds while starting 28 games as a rookieJunior guard Isaiah Zierden, a sharp perimeter shooter, averaged 9.5 points until going down with a knee injury in February.  Guard James Milliken finished strong last season and averaged 9.6 points for…
