Premiership Time of Death: Approximately 4:50 pm EST

Some of you may have noticed that Wigan was hosting Manchester United today. Well, at approximately 4:50 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Michael Carrick put away the decisive goal for United. Fair play to Wigan for taking an early lead, but as usual the evil Man U has prevailed.

With United only needing one point from their remaining two matches to capture a second consecutive trophy, we're ready to call an end to the 2008-09 Premiership title race. All that's left of this season is a relegation battle, FA Cup final and Champions League final, and then of course summer transfers.

Fair warning to any United 'fans' coming to the Baltimore game, I'm a LOT bigger than you and thus can drink more. I won't hit you, but I may well piss on you.

Hope is a cruel mistress.

It's not over yet. Arsenal (a team with nothing to win, and thus, nothing to lose) could take all three this weekend. I mean, they'll have the Russian Pixie playing on their front line this time, and this could bring a brand-new flavor to the match.

Then, Hull City, a team with EVERYTHING to play for. The injured dog is often the most vicious, so I shan't crow about a three-peat until this weekend has ended.

Very nice of you, Mr. Sweet.

If Teeknuts gets to be an astronaut, I want to be a lumberjack.

"Your mother is an astronaut!"

"My mother is too drunk to be an astronaut!"

phil,

my dad was a lumberjack. you don't really want to be a lumberjack. the work is too tough and too dangerous for too little pay.

TFA, no doubt, but my comment was a poorly conceived Monty Python joke.

I've seen clips of Ax-Men on The Soup, so I know how bad it can be...

Yeah, I'm a real manly man.

Fuck off

I hope the Glazer debt-based empire falls like the house of cards it is...

I respect what you've created (your "B" team would finish top-8 easily this year), but fuck off anyways, just on principle...
