Boring night here at the justingoblue-cave; megangoblue is gone and I'm left to my own devices, which currently means Soprano reruns, frozen pizza and some Tanqueray. With no Wings, no MBB or hockey, I'm assuming I'm not the only person sitting around bored tonight. What's everyone else up to?
Capello today quits the England National Team. He was supposed to leave before the 2014 World Cup anyway but not before Euro 2012.
What's really amazing is that Capello never seemed particularly loyal to any captain before including Terry removing the captain's armband once before from Terry for maybe sleeping with a teammates partner. Apparantly it's not okay to punish a player before a trial if it's a racial complaint but it is okay if it's adultery.
According to Wiki since 2008 England has had 6 captains under Capello (Terry, Ferdinand, Gerrard, Beckham, Rooney, and Lampard). I don't get where this suddenly loyalty to Terry is coming from (and I'm a Chelsea fan who loves England's Brave John Terry).
Favorites to take the job seem to be Harry Redkanpp (Tottenham), Jose Mourinho (Real Madrid), Stuart Pearce (England U-21 and Team Great Britain), Alan Pardew (Newcastle) and Roy Hodgson (West Brom).
Okay, about once every few months (off season) I post this to my mgoblog fam because I love to find new stuff to entertain me while I should be writing my dissertation.
What is the funniest website you read?
Here are two of my favs:
http://literallyunbelievable.org/ - I am laughing in tears right now because of this.
http://www.27bslash6.com/ - David would be my best friend if he didn't live in Australia
So, 2012 recruting ended with a wimper (no coffee for Hoke), college and pro football are done for the year, NHL doesn't get interesting until the playoffs, and the NBA is...well, its the NBA. Therefore, I think we need a change of pace to add some levity to the board. And what better way to manifest this urge but with your best anecdotes from the sleaziest hole in Ann Arbor, Rick's American Cafe.
I have many, but I will start with just one and add others later. I had the pleasure of watching Tom Brady get utterly rejected from some floozy late on a Saturday in the spring of 1999. How far he has come! Gives me hope.
What's your story?
1) user pages have returned from the dysfunctional wilderness
2) restoration of the apps is in process but will take a few more days. Sorry about this -- this was not my intended upgrade path but due to the kludgy nature of the existing API* on the site and an unfortunate fiasco with the intended test site, I blew up the extant services. We are moving to a stable release that should make it easier to expand and improve the services in the future.
*[unncessary detail that developer types might find interesting: some guy extended and vastly improved the services module a while back when we were first deploying the iPhone app, so we took his code from his github and found that it worked -- pretty much unlike the official services module. That was outside of any upgrade paths and whatnot and now that the services module has been updated to his new standard we were going to have to deal with this eventually. I was just hoping it wouldn't be user-facing. Fail.]
