It's Oh So Quiet Around Here

Not sure if you've noticed, but we've entered into a pattern here at UF where everybody disappears on the weekends. It is safe to assume that we are all watching football, attending weddings, doing laundry and maybe even buying new drapes with the missus (not really on that last one) [I forgot to add "...and drinking."].

So, to keep you entertained until we reconvene on Monday, here's a few quick hits.

As pointed out by Gunnerblog, karma is a bitch. Aston Villa away supporters sing sick chants about Eduardo's injury, only to see Curtis Davis lost for the rest of the season with a ruptured tendon. No one is wishing harm on any player, but Villa supporters brought that one on themselves. To his credit, the always classy Martin O'Neill called the chants "disappointing."

Man U, Chelsea and Man City are rumored to be interested in Jozy Altidore. I've said I wouldn't mind if he sticks around with the Red Bulls for another season to give us something to go watch when we cover the MLS this summer (blech), but it's only a matter of time until Jozy departs for Europe as a nation turns its lonely eyes to him.

It appears that today Liverpool was in fourth place for all of 50 seconds. I would imagine there will be more on this one later. [noon-ish: Right on cue, lucky Pompey equalize, but Everton are still in fourth -- for now!] [2:30pm: Everton win 3-1 and manage to put more pressure on Liverpool.]
