First things first, I have nothing to say about
Not sure anyone really cares, but maybe the most bizarre transfer in the history of football, ummm, soccer went down yesterday. West Ham United picked up Carlos Tévez and Javier Mascherano. These two are 22, Argentines, and pretty effin awesome. They moved from Corinthians (in Sao Paulo) to East London… but what’s bizarre is that, well, West Ham is sort of like, well… not that good. Or rather famous (and
Tevez is a personal favorite from the week we spend in Buenos Aries a few months ago (and then the World Cup of course). And West Ham picking these two up is just, well cool. And now West Ham should make a run for a Champions League spot.
And people will spend days trying to figure this one out across the pond.
In other news, DaMarcus Beasley (RunDMB) has gone off on loan to Manchester City, which is cool because that means we’ll get to watch Beasley a bit more (well if you get those soccer channels you will). Not sure what this means for Beasley’s career (it’s a step down club wise), but hopefully he’ll see more playing time. And convince the Bum that is Landon Donovan to go to
I was reminded me that today is the 67th ‘anniversary’ of the invasion of
But on that note, from today’s Wall Street Journal:
Bush kicked off his bid to gain support for the Iraq war, telling an American Legion audience in
Does this mean Bush is the first president to drop Godwin's Law? Wow. I feel like this is a big day in American history. “President becomes Despite, Reverts to Godwin's Law”
Blair wants 12 more months… and to be frank, I’m sick of this. Just leave, go away, step down… it’s become the TO story of politics. Every day for over a year, it’s this and that and when will he leave and no one likes him and… just go away. No one cares any more. Take a boat to
It was good to have college football back last night. Watched a bit of the BC and
Well it’s that time again… time for picks. That’s right, even though we sort of stunk last year, it’s time to give some picks. For fun of course.
Not a totally interesting weekend in college football, but let’s give it a go anyway. Home teams in caps.
California (-2) v TENNESSEE – Wow, I know the Vols struggled last year but home dogs to a Cal team that just figured out their quarterback situation? I don’t like how this is setting up for the Bears. Vols win in a tight one.
Wisconsin (-10) v BOWLING GREEN – This game does have the makings of an upset to be honest, but… the Badgers should be THAT much better than Bowling Green. Plus
UCLA (-3) v
Notre Dame (-7) v GEORGIA TECH – Notre Dame might lose this game. They’ve got a really good defense and Calvin Johnson should have a field day with NDs poor secondary. I can’t wait to see how the Domers spin this one… actually, I can wait. Weird match up, I mean ND vs GT? Just seems odd even though GT has won a national title more recently.
USC (-8.5) v
Have a good weekend, may it go to 11:
