    Sorry. Europeans are amateurs when it comes to sports absurdity. We raised the bar last night to heights that can only be seen with the HST.

    Yes, that’s what I was trying to mildly parody.

    It was freakin’ absurd beyond belief.

    ESPN has truly jumped the shark on this one.

    I heard about this on the radio this morning when I woke up. I love that his name is Paul!

    The AP story I had also talked about Manny the psychic parakeet who disagreed with Paul. http://video.ap.org/?f=KYWAM&pid=X4LfmJ9MxAhwj83ovOZCvpZxScLfQSXA

    Finally, something interesting for those of us not exactly into soccer. Or basketball.

    The AP story I “heard,” not “had.” Sheesh.

  5. And the octopus takes it!

    Those wooden shoes proved to be somewhat of a detriment on the football pitch.
