Violence broke out after a football match in the Egyptian city of Port Said and left about 73 people dead. WHile in Cairo a fire broke out in a stadium when another match was abandoned but no one was reported as injured or killed. Sad day for Egypt and football.

Whoa, some game today Chelsea v. Man U

Blues jump out to a 3-nil lead, then give up two PK's (both deserved) and a wicked header to Hernandez and we have a 3-3 draw. BTW, Mata's volley goal was sick skill. 99 out of 100 times that shot goes WAY over the goal, yet he was able to keep it on frame...and almost took De Gea's head off in the process!

The local Fox outlet did NOT carry it live - church service instead. Had to wait until 7PM when FSC broadcast it - right in the middle of the super bowl! Clicked back & forth between them..:D.. Worth it. Both good games, but Man U coming from 3 back on the road is incredible...:wideeyes: The Giants beating the Patriots is merely sweet...;)

Nice game but too much left too late I am not liking all tussling at the top. We should be way out front and safe by now. LOL. BTW. And Liverpool has a new four legged recruit. hehehe

Capello quits as England Manager:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/16941457

He was vocally critical of the English FA striping John Terry of the England captaincy in an interview he gave to an Italian news program. The FA did it as Terry is due to stand trial for allegedly making racial comments to Anton Ferdinand during a match in July - after the European Championships. The FA weren't happy about Capello's comments and after a meeting this evening Capello resigned!!

Personally I think the FA were wrong to strip Terry as one is supposedly innocent until proven guilty and I don't believe they spoke to Capello prior to making their decision or if they did they disregarded it. As Capello made Terry captain the FA were basically saying they didn't respect his judgement.

What a mess with a major championship coming up in 6 months and most of the major contendors who would have been approached after the European Championships when Capello was leaving anyway will be embroiled in their teams commitments for the season.

Quite the uproar has erupted because of Louis Suarez refusing to shake hands with Patrice Evra. The whole match kinda of went downhill from here. Man U did win however so that is something.

Congratulations to Zambia on winning the African Nations Cup tilte. They beat Ivery Coast 8-7 in a penalty shoot out. Needless to say the Elephants fans are crushed but the Zambian fans are over the moon.

Every now and then someone does it right. I'm not a fan of bowing to Europe by naming a US team REAL Salt Lake, but this chant for the team is one of the best I've heard. BTW, the "riot" is their home field, Rio Tinto Stadium. I love that nickname, too. This chant must sound great if all the fans there are doing it.

Simple. Catchy. Memorable. Outstanding.

Arsenal lost heavily (0-4) to AC Milan today and although I am not a big Arsenal fan, I was hoping for a win from them as one of the last EPL teams left in he CL. :(. Meanwhile Benfica lost to Zenit 3-2. Not a good day for my picks it would seem.

Arsenal's bad season just got even worse. They are out of the FA Cup and I would not want to be in Wenger's shoes right now for nothing.

Man U lost to Ajax 2-1 today but still make it to the last 16. Would have been embarrassing to say the least if they had failed to advance.
