Greatest Defensive Pairing Ever.

Dammit Ferrell! You're not a Chelsea fan, are you!

Should be wearing a different blue shirt with that Fellaini hair.

There just aren't words for this.

(Heavy sigh)


ALL the accused pleaded guilty.

Accept one.

It took heart. It took courage.

It was a captain's stand.

Everyone thought they were out.

They had given up hope...

But one...

rose above.

Who wants to start taking bets that he's found guilty?

The Sleeper

Here, in a recurring series, I'm going to catalog Heather's sleeping schedule while on vacation. The total includes the previous night's sleep and the total naps of the days.

July 18 - 10 hours - 2 naps
July 19 - 10.5 hours - 3 naps
July 20 - 10 hours - 0 naps

She claims she needs 11 hours a day, so her average is already starting out low.

We're on vacation right now. We enjoyed Rec Beach in Vancouver today and will spend the night on the UBC campus before departing on the ferry tomorrow morning.

messi zidane ad.

Can't decide whether this is awesome or retarded.

Gonna go with a touch of the 'tards.

P.s. Anybody wanna go on a quest with me to rob the wizard of his magical zippo? The Uncle could use it. We need it more than Messi. Or Zidane for that matter.

Nut kick coach

Good old Concacaf soccer. Nothing is ever normal.

This is Mexico's coach kicking a player (apparently he was reaching for the ball) because he believed the ball was out of play and the opponent was still playing it.

He was suspended a number of games. Apparently it took 12 minutes to restore order on the field after Mexico supporters showered the field with whatever they had their hands on.

Murphy's Law

I really hate this law right now. And given my disdain for Air Canada, it's all culminating into a blood boiling cauldron of frustration.

Since the weekend I've been lamenting the fact I didn't take advantage of Air Canada's sale over Canada Day for a $550 trip to Toronto. Prices steadied at $623 and I told Heather on Sunday "no matter what I do, if I get tickets at that price they will drop, otherwise they will go up in price. Murphy's Law."

So 12 hours after I buy tickets at $623, what happens? That's right, they drop to $518. $105 dollars, down the drain. FBOMB.

Remi Gaillard

I seriously just spent 2 hours watching these on youtube. Hilarious. Helps if you speak French.

I've got to get that shirt


On a side note, Owen goes to Man U. I wonder if the backwards Umbro shirt is a statement that the world is backwards based on that signing. Or did The Daily Mail cleverly photoshop this? HMMMMMM.

Top Ten Shock Transfers

From ESPN Soccernet...

Luis Figo - Barcelona to Real Madrid (2000)
Figo's move from Barcelona to Real Madrid for a world record fee of £37m was perhaps the most controversial in Spanish football history. Moving from the Catalan club to Madrid for such a star player was unthinkable, but Figo made the switch in 2000. The first time he returned to the Nou Camp you could say he received something of a frosty reception, which resulted in several objects being thrown at him... including a pig's head.
Because everyone knows, Figo is a beef man.
