So with Danny and "We-all-know-who-but-can't-say" both still snug in bed - different ones, I assure you - I probably ought to take this opportunity to discuss "Twink" Cohen, a blubbering meatbag on FSC who has an actual British accent and everything, but who would be dumb enough to waste valuable space on that useless twatwaffle?
Instead, here are some stories of actual interest:
- It appears that formerly stadium-hating DC Mayor Adrian Fenty HAS DONE A MAJOR TURNAROUND and now thinks that having a soccer stadium would be just grand.
For some perspective on where all this fits into the larger scheme of things, you can peruse the related discussion amongst the context-loving doyennes of the DC Forum. Just be sure not to post a comment of your own - some Nazi mod will delete it, give you a red card and send people around to be very mean to your cat. They're extremely hostile.
- Meanwhile, the perennially hopeful KC fans THINK THEY HAVE SOMETHING GOING TOO but really, how can you trust any of those guys?
- Meanwhile, in the "Fat chance"....excuse me, the "Expansion" Forum, some guys are asking CAN WE BRING MLS TO VIRGINIA BEACH?. Please don't answer their question. It would be rude.
- On the other hand, some kind soul sent me A LINK TO SOME RENDERINGS of the soccer stadium proposed for Vancouver.
On a less cheery note, The Telegraph in England HAS POSTED A SUMMARY OF THAT LUDICOUS SIMERS COLUMN from a couple days ago.
This is part of the problem with ignorant garbage like that - it gets reprinted and noticed elsewhere and makes US soccer fans look like idiots. I'm sure the L.A. Times is proud.
Speaking of Beckham, Edmonton is taking a novel approach in regard to their scheduled May 13 match between the Galaxy and the Whitecaps: IF BECKHAM DOESN'T SHOW then you get your money back.
Apparently they're not familiar with that old Farengi saying about never giving anyone their money back. But mentioning it brings up "Twink" again, and I'm just not going there.
Finally, in honor of Valentine's Day, I hereby offer, courtesy of FANHOUSE, a photo of Gemma Atkinson, the girl that Christiano Ronaldo will be sending roses and chocolates to today and getting, I'm sure, an appropriate "thank you" from a bit later.
May you be as fortunate.
