Motez Bishara previews the USA – Portugal World Cup match, and reflects on the Spurs NBA championship on Yahoo Sports Radio

Greetings all!

The Big E Sports Show had me on this week to preview Team USA’s chances against Portugal Sunday night, and wrap up the San Antonio Spurs’ convincing victory over the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals.

The interview stream is available here: 

It’s always a pleasure to be interviewed by Elissa Walker Campbell, who has a super interesting past herself. She played college basketball for the University of Oklahoma Sooners, and is the daughter of Country Music Hall of Fame star Charlie Walker.

Her weekly show, featured on Yahoo Sports Radio and syndicated across America, features many current and former pro-sports coaches and players (like Ken Griffey), as well as other prominent sports reporters. She recently interviewed legendary New York Times writer George Vescey, who just released the book Eight World Cups: My Journey through the Beauty and Dark Side of SoccerIt’s a terrific interview, and I’m thrilled to be a contemporary of someone of his stature.

But back to the World Cup: Who would have bet that after two matches, Costa Rica would head the group that includes Italy, England and Uruguay? Hold on to your seats, I think think there are more surprises to come.

C’mon Team USA!!

America, f- yeah!

America, f- yeah!
