Andy Schleck is retiring from cycling at the age of 29. :(

Such a bright talent and such a weak mind, he could've been the best if he had had the will.

This is what you get when you let Qatar buy world cups for sports they know nothing about. Empty stadiums.

You'd think they'd have the money to pay people to go to the games and just cheer for whatever.

Pretty much what they did, they flew in Pharrell to give a concert in the stadium after the last game.

In Germany, the matches are only shown on pay TV, so while handball is a popular sport, most people won't be able to watch live.

Qatar won with their mercenary squad, apparently giving each member €100,000 for a win is a good idea.

It's too funny seeing their fans go crazy. :lol:

It seems dozens of fans missed the quarter finals, even though they had tickets. Qatar had offered free entry to make sure the place was packed, and when legit ticket buyers arrived later, they were turned away.
