chance of bowl: 13.6%
I don't know how to embed this but I found it amusing
Just went to espn.com at work, noticed a historic update brewing at Wimbledon. Federer down 2 sets, I'll be following this pulling for the comeback.
Taking the family to Atlanta this weekend to check out the Tigers v. Braves.
I wanted to ask the Atlanta area Michigan fans where is the best place to stay near the stadium?
Today's matches (in EST):
7:30 am: Portugal - DPRK (North Korea)
10:00 am: Chile - Switzerland
2:30 pm: Spain - Honduras
Portugal - North Korea is on now. Superb passing led to the only goal so far for Portugal, put away by Raul Meireles. Second half kicking off now. North Korea has looked ok, but the goal definitely rattled them a bit. Come on Chollima!
I'm going to start by saying, I did not search to see if this link was posted beforehand. Frankly, I do not care this time. There is something I need to get off my chest. On June 2, 2010, I posted some deregotory remarks about Jim Joyce. Clearly, these were heat of the moment remarks of an intense Tigers fan, which I am. I did not actually wish any of the things I said about that man. It was simply me venting to my peers, and for that, I am truly sorry. But over the course of the last few weeks, I have read anything I could get my eyes fixed on about Jim Joyce. This article brought me to tears. If you haven't seen it, this is a MUST READ for any baseball fan. Please, if you love MLB or the Detroit Tigers, you have to check this out:
(In rough order of appearance)
Didier Drogba - broke his arm during Ivory Coast's final World Cup warm-up match against Japan.
Fabio Cannavaro - made calamitous error that allowed Shane Smeltz to score New Zealand's opener against Italy during the team's 1-1 draw and pull off one of the shock results of the World Cup so far.
Wayne Rooney - arguably the single-most under-performing player at the World Cup to date, he was forced to apologise after insulting England fans following that dismal 0-0 draw against Algeria .
Lassana Diarra - forced to withdraw from French squad after being diagnosed with a genetic blood disorder at the team's training camp.
Patrice Evra, Franck Ribery, Jeremy Toulalan - three members of the French squad who are currently embroiled in one of the biggest meltdowns in World Cup history. Both Evra and Ribery have also been involved in fights - with French fitness coach Robert Duverne and midfielder Yoann Gourcuff respectively.
Cesc Fabregas - fell out with club manager Arsene Wenger after demanding transfer from Arsenal to Barcelona. Currently involved in tapping-up row .
Andres Iniesta and Gerard Pique - not only did this Spanish pair suffer a shock group stage defeat to Switzderland, but Iniesta also limped off injured while Pique was largely at fault for Gelson Fernandes' goal.
Ronaldinho - failed to make Brazilian coach Dunga's final 23-man squad for South Africa.
All we can say is, don't put any money on Roger Federer winning Wimbledon in two weeks' time - and watch out Homer Simpson: it'll be you next...
