Pity Kim Myong Won, a striker for the North Korean entry to the World Cup. When the team submitted their roster on Tuesday, they listed him as a goalie. No biggie, right? Wrong. He will only be eligible to play goal in what has to be the most ridiculous thing I've heard all week. But hey, at least he'll possibly play. Same can't be said for Ivory Coast's Didier Drogba (broken arm) who appears to be doubtful or England's captain Rio Ferdinand (knee), who is in fact out. I suspect that England might be better off without Ferdinand in any event. Kudos to England manager Fabio Capello for not going the easy route and making John Terry captain again. Instead, it'll be Steven Gerrard leading the team out of the tunnel next Saturday when they face the U.S.A.
Check out the Best Sports Quotes of the Week. Always fun to see what the mostly uneducated can come up with.
Toronto FC look to keep their strong run of late, especially at home, on the go when they host Kansas City at 4pm. It is getting almost too easy to say they win. Who saw that coming after the first few games this year?
The Toronto Blue Jays bats keep pounding homers, and that led to a 6-1 beating of the New York Yankees at the Rogmahal last night. Up today is a juicy Ricky Romero v. Andy Pettitte matchup, and am personally pumped to be bringing my boy to the game, his first seeing the Yankees.
A prominnent concussion doctor says that the NFL is in need of an "enormous culture change" if they're to properly care for players. He actually thinks the league really and truly cares? They routinely send out guys with pain killers and a variety of injuries, what makes him think the tougher to recognize head injury would be so different?
