Tweeting is fun for everyone! (almost)

Here in the locker room of the Unprofessional Foul, it can be a place that can best be described as 'scuzzy'. Between NY Kid's sobbing into a towel, Spectator taking overly long showers, and general fighting over the last beer in the cooler, a rumble goes on. Over the past week or so, Autoglass and Bigus Dickus have been fighting over the usefulness/uselessness/relevancy of their respective twitters. The biggest issue is over keeping things private vs. not. We're to the point of offering a class at UFU on this topic. Houston Dynamo forward Brian Ching is a person who would have benefited from such classes. Fined for whinging about the ref's call. "Ref in seattle just cheated the dynamo," Ching tweeted. "What a joke. Not even close. Ref is a cheat."

He apologized in two Twitter posts the next morning, blaming "the heat of the moment." Now, he was fined $500 for such a comment. I first thought "wow, that's like a big chunk of his salary. But it's not really. I had to pull out my handy MLS Salary Chart (PDF Warning). He makes $242K this year, or more than what Bigus Dickus will spend on Norwich swag in his lifetime.

The throwdown between Bigus and Autoglass shapes up like a classic east coast/west coast feud: The laid back west coaster who openly tweets about his daily life of being a sad Chelsea fan, and the private rantings of a Norwichian. But reading the arguments over twitter between Bigus and Autoglass, it makes us wonder how a twitter feud between Beckham and Landon would play out:

@PoshBoy: Someone told me that I got dissed by my teammates. wazzup?

@LandonsTime: Ignore those writers, they're selling books.

@PoshBoy: I'm always a great teammate, just ask all my mates.

@LandyCakes: Well, you're a captain and I don't feel right asking.

@PoshBoy: All of my mates loved me.

@LandyCakes: We loved you too. We just needed some dinner, and I forgot my visa.

@PoshBoy: All you need is a bite? Let me ask the missus what I should do.

@LandyCakes: The MLS isn't all bad. We've got Davies and he's a stud.

@PoshBoy: Are you sure?

@LandyCakes: Well, there's me!

@PoshBoy: Yea...gotta run, I need to help Tom and Katie move some meter thing.

Waking up to watch this City match, I forgot how much I love the sound of vuvuzelas in the morning. City down 1-0 at the half to Orlando Pirates.

I primarily follow pornstars and people who do voiceover work.

This Seattle-Chelsea match is surprisingly a very good one.

Actually not that mad... I think that 07-08 was the aberration. I'll only be mad if we don't spend the money on a DM and a CB. I just hope this doesn't send Fab packing.

Given that today could have been a football wonderland (noon to nine my time), I think you missed the boat...

that said, I have no wife, kids, life, or other extraneous things to get in the way of watching football...

Good thing I have beer...

It's moving day. And Blogger saw fit to lock our blog overnight. Not much we could do about it.

was not meant as a knock, umlaut. I was just bored...

Congratulations, America. This is how you fuck up a "tournament of champions". No one bothered to tell the fricking teams what happens when a tie happens?????

And when spectators run onto the field, its also apparent that the fricking site/security weren't aware either. Fucking beautiful...

Well, at least Viera still can't hit the broad side of a barn...

Arsenal boss Wenger: We are strong enough
