There’s Three Kinds Of People On Planet Earth Today..

Posted in Football at 3:15 pm by

1) Guys who cultivate this kind of look.


(hugs for Paolo Maldini after his first half goal put Milan up, 1-0)

2) Those of us who have witnessed Liverpool score 3 goals in 5 minutes to erase a 3-0 AC Milan lead in the Champions League final.

3) Persons who are too busy with their families to worry about all of that trivial shit.

Speaking of trivial, if you’re watching the match on Sky or ITV, you can be very very jealous of lucky Americans like myself. UK viewers aren’t rewarded with ESPN2′s running ticker letting them know, for example, that Victor Zambrano has walked 38 batters in 41 innings.

    I just spent the last hour trying to explain to my Mainer fiancee how I can be incredibly partisan against Liverpool (or any other club that isn’t Norwich City) 353 days a year and yet be bonkers with joy after they fought back tonight. “But they crossed the English Channel!” didn’t cut it. I asked her to respect our cultural differences but she still thinks all English people are mentally ill. Quite why she’s marrying me I don’t know. Cracking result tonight, back to Scouser arseholes tomorrow.

    Thank you for providing some Mortiis love, after all, he is the man who wrote “Smell The Witch”.

    Mortiis? I thought it was John Ashcroft.
