"did not see barrier"

I'm sure he has a few backup Ferraris in his a Tesla for those days when he wants to be friendly to the environment.

Lemme guess... He was updating his facebook status on his Blackberry... Cars are Coffins.

A one-car collision no doubt, with Cristiano insisting there was contact from another car.

Actually that would be the best mens goals of 2008. The tab for "babes" on the linked web site is actually not a link to the best womens goals of 2008.

So here are the best USWNT goals of 2008


And if you just like to watch Lloyd's Brazilian death blow over and over from different angles and in different speeds (not that anyone would want to do that) here's your link.

ironic, ain't it? put him in a red shirt, and he collapses in agony when someone looks at him askew. put him in a red ferrari, and he can hit a cement wall, get up and walk away. they're obviously doing some incredible safety work up there Maranello, huh?

That's sort of like "Military Intelligence" or "Smart Blonde".

If you aren't laughing at updating his facebook on his blackberry
I-270Exit1 you must be updating your facebook on your blackberry;-)

I don't have a Blackberry or a facebook page, so I guess I didn't get it.

I didn't suspect you did I-270 but it is what "all" the twenty somethings are doing these days. Some of us over 30 folks too I guess..:-)
