Chelsea host Manchester United today in a huge game for both clubs hopes for this season. For Chelsea, they're looking to solidify a Champions League spot for next year, while Manchester United would love a positive result here to move a step closer to the EPL title for this season. Kickoff is 2:45pm on Setanta.
Fear not, Buffalo Bills fans, "Chan [Gailey] has a plan" says new Bills assistant head coach Dave Wannstedt. Well that takes care of that. Love that he says "everywhere he's been he's been successsful" of a career 22-26 coach.
The NBA, in a bid to speed up games, is cracking down on teams that treat the horn to signal the end of a timeout as merely a suggestion to wrap up their conversation, and the early results suggest it is shaving some time off. Also likely to shave off time: eliminating all the bloody timeouts. Just a thought.
In looking at the possibility of an NHL squad returning to Quebec City, Bruce Arthur at the National Post notes that the New York Islanders, Florida Panthers, Atlanta Thrashers, Dallas Stars, Columbus Blue Jackets, St. Louis Blues, Carolina Hurricanes, New Jersey Devils, and the Nashville Predators are all for sale, in whole or in part. Yeah, the salary cap and its "cost certainty" has done wonders for the NHL.
Wonder if the story that Tim Horton died while racing away from the police while hammered - toxicology showed he had a BAC of .17% - is a popular one at the purveyor's of horrible coffee's million or so locations?
Sorry for the brief one folks, had a few real life things settle in so expect a big update tomorrow, with some slightly dated.
