congratulations manchester united. **update**

The "O'Shea Spray"


I hate this. It's why I wrote the title in all lower case.

But, congratulations are in order as ManU won its third consecutive Premier League title with a 0-0 draw with Arsenal at Old Trafford this morning. They did what Liverpool couldn't do, beat the teams they were supposed to beat.

Now it's time for the credo of the sports optimist. "Next year." And, hoping Ronaldo ships off to Madrid and Tevez goes elsewhere.

Anyway a few photos after the jump.




Tevez waves goodbye to ManU.



And that was the first time Tevez was given a mirror.





Is frontrunner really an insult to Usain Bolt?




update.


barclay's has its own champagne?

Appropriate that the EPL logo appears to be enclosed in a Nazi Eagle.

POSSIBLE BLIND ITEM FOR TOMORROW: Which Man U star will celebrate tonight by raping someone?

Scotty Hockey said...

ESPN News is reporting (at 2:26pm et) that with the tie, Man U won the Champions League.

Yeah.

The NY Kid said...

@JT - my vote is for Jonny Evans. Kid's got a pattern to follow.

Sarah said...

I'd put my money on Rio Ferdinand. Or Gary Neville, he's got a creepy sexual predator sort of face. Definitely someone to avoid when walking home alone at night.

Precious Roy said...

With the 'update' I thought maybe somehow United had been stripped of the title. Or maybe everyone had gone through a worm hole back to February and things played out differently. No such luck. No we're at 11 years I have to pretend never happened.

(btw Sarah... I busted out laughing on your 'Free love on the freelove freeway' Brent-nod the other day).

Teeknuts said...

My dark horse is Macheda. He's got just the right scumbag look to him.

Sarah said...

Totally agree about Macheda. Kid's a creeper.

And PR, I used to have that song on my ipod. Possibly my favorite moment of the original Office.

What the fuck is a "Manchester United?"

Precious Roy said...

Sarah... you should probably put it back on your iPod. And add Spaceman while you're at it.

More likely rape tonight: Manchester United's Jonny Evans celebratory rape or Arsenal's Robin van Persie 4th place rape?

Teeknuts said...

In much, much happier title news, Barca clinched today! Now they can take the rest of the season off to prepare for the CL final.

The NY Kid said...

@WSR - He was acquitted!
