    2 big consecutive victories for the Newcastle Aler's.

    City fall to Sunderland. Sandolf is surely not pleased.

    Big game ready to start... Gooners vs Rags. Go Gooners.

    Rags win. Sandolf is definitely not pleased.

    I wasn't too shocked about the result. However, I think France could easily win their home leg 2-0 also. Will be interesting.

    I'm more shocked that Greece scored 3 goals. Romania has a tough challenge on their home leg to get thru.

    I hope Sveden wins 3-0 at home.

    I have been full time since Sept. The television business has always seemed like musical chairs to me. When Fox Soccer was shut down I knew the music was going to stop. This time I made a rather creative decision to do something entirely different rather than looking for another show to work on. So far it is working out well. The Hosers took Fox Soccer News from an hour seven days a week to a half hour five days a week. That is a 60% loss. Even that was short lived because the shortsighted stoopid bastages cancelled Soccer Central entirelty about two weeks ago.

    hehehe... I escaped just in the nick of time.

    Brendan is doing Sportnet Connected... (which is a knockoff on ESPN's Sports Center). A soccer guy exiled into the mainstream sports wasteland. But at least he has a job. James Sharman is back to doing a little farty footie show on a specialty channel.

    I am in a Law program. It's been pretty amusing so far.

    Good call. Attorney-dom should be a good retirement gig so long as you have clients. Given that you're near Toronto, I can think of a few client bases in whose business you could guarantee yourself work whenever you wanted it...

    In all honesty, I thought Brendan was pretty talented (and you of course too). That's pretty good praise coming from an American giving a Hooser credibility on soccer.

    I have already had so sit in court to write assignments. Maybe something of the Chess tactics and all of the arguing I have done on Chargers boards over the years will come to some good. Indeed as you wrote... there is no shortage of people getting themselves into shet.

    Thanks Tyce. The whole experience has soured me as a fan, but I am sure that this is just temporary. Another good reason not to mix business and pleasure... (but that gig was fun while it lasted).

    Too soon to tell. Misdemeanors up here are called Summary Offenses. Right now the program is more concentrated on civil law rather than criminal. I am just starting out.

    Well that sucks for Ibra. I really like watching him play, and for him not to be in the World Cup is a bummer. Instead of some fabulous 1-liners from Ibra and some great goals, we get an arrogant Portuguese. Thumbs down.

    I love how the majority of Cardiff fans still wear their blue jerseys in defiance of the owner changing the team colors to red.

    It would be a better beer if they didn't bottle it in a clear bottle allowing the beer to get oxidized.

    5th place for a day. You're ahead of City, Spuds and the Rags!

    Ya, but I don't look at it that way. I won't count standings when other teams have a game in hand. A Totty and Rag draw would be ok tho.

    I'm a bit upset that the Asian region was put in our pot. I was hoping to draw one of them. Now, we are looking at facing 2 strong European teams and a strong CONMEBOL or CAF team. :eek:

    Ah criminy. I have to get up at 4am to watch the Spuds and Rags. I guess I don't have to, I'm just inevitably drawn to it.
