Soccer finally scores big with American audiences, debating the merits and dangers of a "header" and the debate around Lebron's decision to become a free agent. It's time for our weekly look at sports with writers Andy and Brian Kamenetzky. 


Tomorrow at the World Cup in Brazil, the United States plays Germany with a lot on the line, but it didn't have to be that way if the U.S. had been able to defend in the last minute of the match.

The USA vs. Portugal game was a big hit, the most watched soccer match in ESPN history. Does that mean that soccer is starting to be as important here as it is in the rest of the word?

Possibly the best basketball player in the world, LeBron James,  made himself a free agent. Free to sign with any team. Does this mean he will go to another team or is this just a technical move?
