Edu's goal vs Celtic might be the goal of his career...unless he scores a winner in the World Cup.

Do these ManU fans not understand what a leveraged buyout is?

"I got the chance to sneak in a few questions past the "soulless media vultures" to the U.S. national team and Fulham's Clint Dempsey."

Pecks really should have gotten on Dempsey's good side and asked about the photo shoot in SI . . .

Crap! Forgot to record the Ireland match. Oh well, I'll listen in on RTE this afternoon and catch the highlights.

The fine supporters of PSG are at it again.

Isn't this ironic:
"Marseille fans had boycotted the game to protest against security measures imposed on visiting supporters."

Does anyone else notice that as the US team is coming together as guys are coming back from injury, England is falling apart? Can we hire some attractive women and send them to the Brit's camp to try to cause some more rukus?

Amazing.

For whatever it's worth (maybe not much), ussoccer.com is reporting that Jermaine Jones met the USMNT this morning in Amsterdam.

Posted by: BooThisMan | March 2, 2010 11:03 AM | Report abuse

Jones is delusional if he thinks he can make the World Cup squad at this point.

Posted in another thread also.....

BREAKING NEWS (unless someone else just posted it in which case it is old news)

Just got off the phone with Cox Fairfax Business to order sports tier for my office and asked about Fox Soccer Plus. If you already had Setanta it will automatically switch to Plus on same channel (298). If you don't have it, since they just closed the deal yesterday it's going to take a few days to get the new account codes into their system but they expect by tomorrow or Thursday to be able to accept new orders.

And no, I don't have any openings in my office to hire summer help. I can only afford one non-productive member of my team (Me!) between now and the end of World Cup.
