Monday Backpasses: no loud noises tomorrow

I'm guessing tomorrow's posting will be light, or restricted to those who did not find their way to NYC for the holiday interim. Come by tomorrow to see who assaulted a DJ (my money is on LB).

Southern Football League Premier Division player sent off after 3 seconds [SI]
10 amazing red cards. No mention of the red card and reaction that brought this equals fail [Goal.com]
Jay DeMerit's top XI he has played against in England. Safe, no surprises [NYT Goal Blog]

Ronaldo: I'm too fat. Rest of world nods in agreement [Soccernet]
Abramovich feeling the financial pinch [Luxist]

And, finally:
Player flattens manager in A-League. Seems it's a repeat of an earlier altercation between the two teams [101 Great Goals]

So I take it there's the equivalent of a UF "party" in NYC tonight? And I wasn't invited?? Dammit, I'm taking my insanely stupid comments elsewhere...or, fuck you all, I'm working tomorrow. Oh, wait...

Drink a few Harps for me, gentlemen, or whatever else sinks your boats...

Oh, and I'm with Sarah on the NUFC photo - there is NO need to ever show that photo again...

Maybe next time. This was an opportunity for the contributors to actually meet each other in person. Well, not me...since I'm still at work on the West Coast and it's....8:22 PM PST.

The Fan's Attic said...

Oh, and there will definitely be a next time. Just not sure when.

Just bitching because I could. I actually thought I'd be in NYC in late August this year (figured I might meet a few of you), but it fell totally through. Such is life...

And I'm "taking/wasting vacation days" by spending half-days at work right now...yeah, that makes sense...

And if you like Harp, feel free to drink a few for me out there on the West Coast once you get out...if not, whatever you enjoy...

The Fan's Attic said...

I'll be lucky to get out of here before last call.

jjf3 said...

then you definitely have my sympathy tonight. Hope you make it out of the workplace, and get a chance to enjoy whatever you happen to favor...

It was a fun night. One thing is certain, drunk 22 year old Wesleyan lacrosse players should take better care of themselves and their mouths. The cooler heads of UF prevailed because if they had not, those 3 Wesleyan dudes would have been destroyed by the 15+ strong horde of UF'ers all drunk and wearing their respective team's shirts. We looked like a Hooligan Convention, singing songs and making fun of Steven Gerrard.

Gerrard charged. Discuss.

Andrew said...

Excuse me, he's charged with "assault occasioning actual bodily harm and affray." I suppose that equals what we in American jurisprudence call "assault and battery." But I though "Affray" was a middie for PSV.

I must be the only one not looking to start a fight, but I brought my own problems.

To all I met - you are the best. each and every one. To those I have forgotten, I am sorry.
