2008-09. Sad to say, it took me that long to figure out that this game was worth it.
No, but I know a few people to whom John Lennon would have said, "Yer a swine!"
Half the players on the New York Red Bulls. Trust me: I was at the game last night. I saw their game against Beckham and the L.A. Galaxy at the Meadowlands last night -- me and 23,000 other fools -- and they were rubbish. (LA won 3-1... at least I got to see Goldenballs whiff on a pass!) You know what the Red Bulls have in common with gum? They get chewed up, spit out, and are now at the bottom of the table!
Any position played by Abou Diaby.
Sunderland vs. Hull. The last time that many parked buses were in an English stadium, Evel Knievel tried to jump a motorcycle over them.
Maybe he can ask one of the ten men who went to lift (What?!?) went to lift him.
Sometimes money stops the world.
Maradona was never a hero of mine; then again, I'm old enough to remember when Argentina was practically Nazi Germany South. I was quite happy that the Royal Navy smacked them around in '82.
I don't know what it means in England, but in America, "septic" means "poisonous."
If we're talking stationary, Beyonce; if it's how she moves it, Shakira. Of course, being from Colombia, Shakira's probably a better football player.
No. If they yell "Put down the phone!" at you in the Yankee Stadium bleachers, I don't want to imagine what they'd yell in a pub -- or, God forbid, if you tried it on the terraces!
I do have a remote that isn't working right now, partly due to rewinding and watching certain goals over and over again on an Arsenal DVD. But since I don't have Fox Soccer Channel, I never had Setanta, ESPN refuses to admit that English soccer exists except for Man U and Chelski, and I have to go to Nevada Smith's in New York to watch Arsenal, that's one problem that I don't have.
When I travel, I now look to see if there's a place that shows international soccer matches in that city, and make a point to check it out. Whatever the team is, it can't be any worse than the Red Bulls.
