Making the little teams look big.
Liverpool fights back for a dramatic 3-2 victory at home to mighty Wigan Athletic. Uh, yes... mighty. Another famous win against a... well, less than famous team. We still need to figure out how to play a full 90 against teams not named "PSV Eindhoven" (and even that was about 85). It was a great relief, though, to see that we could overcome defensive blunders and bail ourselves out of trouble without the services of El Nino. We were capable of winning this one by three given the quality of play.
Dirk Kuyt = Ball of Fire. I can get used to that. Four goals from his last three matches -- he's starting to resemble the man who had so much success in his days at Feyenoord. Happy to see Riera get on the board, too. I continue to be impressed by his play. Poor Robbie is still a largely anonymous member of this squad. Feels like he's pressing too much and its resulting in countless muck ups on attack.
There was a lot made of Chelski's 5-0 win over Boro during the broadcast. Fact is, the likelihood that the title will be decided by goal differential is slim-to-none. Margin of victory as it relates how two clubs compare to one another only leads to speculation. So with that in mind, today is: mission accomplished. All to play for against those blue d-bags next week.

Clemson's claim to fame
As a gambler, I'm troubled by the New York Football Giants' disappearing act, last night. Cleveland had 7,000 false starts and still converted on 75% of their third downs. Giants D? Invisible. Yes, the NFL is full of parity, but now there's one less team to fully back with the bankroll.
Now, as for the title of this thread...
Who knew anyone cared so much about Clemson football. Really? Enough to cry about it? This video will forever brand their fans as pussies. Do enjoy.

Fire Mike Stoops. Seriously.
College football won't get a more entertaining game, this season, than what we saw this morning between Texas and Oklahoma. Can't say enough about it. Texas looks poised to take on Alabama in the title game. (putting shotgun in mouth, waiting to pull trigger if this is the verdict on B(C)S selection day)
Also, Arizona contrived to lose to Stanford. Again. That leaves UofA at 4-2, still two games shy of bowl eligibility. Spotting the Cats the game against Washington State, I don't like our chances. So, let's make it official at season's end, shall we? Bob's brother has had too much time as it is.

So effing proud!
Preach on, Rafa! Any time we beat the Scum, its a day to celebrate. Without even taking any pills, LFC's 2-1 win over Manure might give me a boner for 24 hours. No, I will not go to the hospital. Felt so good to watch. Cheers to Riera, Babel, and Carra! Oh, and a very special thanks to Wes Brown, that git.

Technology is great
I am at work, watching Andy Murray v Roger Federer live on the interweb. Things could be worse. Speaking of which...
You know who are a bunch of dickbags? The New England Patriots. They had neither win covered the spread or lost outright. Where's the decency?! I blame Belichick. He's a cheater.
Arizona Wildcats football: 2-0. May have to get out to the UCLA game in a couple weeks.
From the "Oh, by the way" file...
Oh, by the way, sitting five rows off the third base line for a Dodger game on a beautiful Sunday afternoon with all the free food you can eat definitely does not suck. The Arizona Diamondbacks, now they suck.
