Shit Must Be Gotten Together…

Satellite (9)…and quickly. I can’t even talk about that game right now and I don’t envy mygypsyspirit having to recap it. If I was doing it, it would just be a post full of swear words. Continue reading

DAgger Does A Solid

12 Sep

Denmark Training SessionDaniel Agger (who just left Liverpool to returned to former club Brøndby IF thereby breaking watishista Mandi’s heart) did a great thing recently.

Good on you, Daniel! You are as generous as you are hot. I strongly support the Homeless World Cup and I recommend that you watch the awesome documentary Kicking It that I linked in this post (direct link in the update at the end).
