NY Kid: WanderingBear thinks it's a photoshop. He's not convinced

Man, Georger is is gonna be pissed about that Torres bit.

Looking at that picture, all I can hear is Groundskeeper Willie:

"BONJOURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR, Ya cheese-eatin' surrender monkeys!"

Also, if no one has seen this:

do yourself the favor.

Mike Georger said...

saw it coming, last week i predicted torres would play no more than ten games for pool the rest of the season

Lingering Bursitis said...

Phil: it blows my mind that David James is still playing. Especially when he does shit like that.

Georger: he'll play more than 10 games, and he'll still come good. I appreciate your efforts to create low expectations in order to avoid possible disappointment. I am unconcerned.

Mike Georger said...

this isnt a low expectations thing, im just terrified this is going to be one of those injuries that keeps popping up and needs a summer to cure. we've seen it before with minor things like groins and hamstrings.

im not concerned about this hurting his career or anything though, and whenever he DOES play i have no doubt he will be the best player on the field. they just need to win without him a few times and get the confidence back. tomorrow ought to be a big step in that direction

Yes, playing Blackburn should be a nice little cure-all to our goalless ways

Andrew said...

re: James - as the German broadcaster said, "unglaublich."

Anyone else catch the stadium PA and fans doing the funny "danke/bitte" routine in announcing the score?

"Yes, playing Blackburn should be a nice little cure-all to our goalless ways"
