Messi, Tevez, Crespo, and Mascherano to play in Melbourne

Oh, baby I can't wait for till the 11th! It's probably the only circumstances I can think of that I will enjoy watching Australia getting thrashed in person! Read on....

MELBOURNE, Aug 28 (Reuters) - Argentina coach Alfio Basile named Real Madrid's Gabriel Heinze and Barcelona's Lionel Messi in a 21-man squad for the international friendly against Australia in Melbourne next month.
Basile named a strong party with Real's new signing Heinze included alongside club team mate Javier Saviola, Liverpool's Javier Mascherano, Manchester United's Carlos Tevez and Hernan Crespo of Inter Milan.
Influential midfielder Juan Roman Riquelme has been left out for the clash at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sept 11. The match was originally scheduled for June but Argentina asked for a postponement fearing they could not muster a strong enough squad.
The match will be Australia's first since losing on penalties to Japan in the quarter-finals of the Asian Cup.
Argentina squad:
Roberto Abbondanzieri (Getafe), Oscar Ustari (Getafe), Sergio Romero (AZ Alkmaar); Gabriel Heinze (Real Madrid), Daniel Diaz (Getafe), Gabriel Milito (Barcelona), Fabricio Coloccini (Deportivo La Coruna), Nicolas Burdisso (Inter Milan), Javier Zanetti (Inter Milan); Fernando Gago (Real Madrid), Martin Demichelis (Bayern Munich), Jonas Gutierrez (Mallorca), Javier Mascherano (Liverpool), Federico Insua (America, Mexico), Cristian Ledesma (Olympiakos), Maxi Rodriguez (Atletico Madrid), Sergio Aguero (Atletico Madrid); Javier Saviola (Real Madrid), Hernan Crespo (Inter Milan), Carlos Tevez (Manchester United), Lionel Messi (Barcelona).

9 Baseball Moments More Wretched Than Steroids

Go right here to read a wonderful list which includes the beating of a one-handed, two-fingered fan by Ty Cobb in 1912 to a video of Randy "The Big Unit" Johnson killing a dove with a 95-mile-an-hour fastball.

Quote of the arbirtrary time I deem necessary between quotes:

"Give me a K!"- By way of explanation hit TheBestNothing and watch the video. It's all gold. For some reason though the military chick screwing up on Wheel of Fortune made me laugh until I almost vomited. I think it's the look on Pat Sajak's face that does it. Is there a specific emotion for wanting to euthanise someone? 'Cause if there is, that's what it would look like.

Alex, these guys are like fatter, curly-haired, ginger versions of us in our high school prime. Brings a single tear to my eye.

About the sweetest website I've seen in ages.

Anyone who likes to listen to music while at their computer (which, let's face it, must be virtually everyone) has to visit this site: http://www.deezer.com/. It's a streaming music website that lets you search for basically anything you can think of and then stream it. You can set up multiple playlists, smart playlists, etc. It's like online iTunes. I've got it on at work right now. Absolute gold.

According to Wayne's uncle (my work-mate Rob) he pulled this off on his first try. No shit.

Torres shreds Chelsea defense

Well, now that I've had a day to calm down the venom I felt last night at Liverpool's robbery at the hands of Rob Styles has been replaced by serenity brought about by this amazing goal from Fernando Torres. If anyone thought he was going to be a flop in the Prem, just watch this. Sheer gold. He's exactly the kind of striker Liverpool has been lacking. Enjoy. I'm sure there will be much more of this to come.

Astounding Feats Of Human Intelligence Number...Oh who gives a f$@k!

Rob Styles, take a bow you useless sack of shit. If you think I'm just being biased then have a look at this. Congratulations you useless twat. The only saving grace of the evening comes from the fact that when I got home (at 3:30 am- I have to work tomorrow at 8:30) they were playing a Billy Joel Concert on tv and as I turned it on I got to hear "Piano Man". Which is sweet. But, to conclude, Rob Styles, you are a useless twat and I hope you and fucking Frank the Fat Cockney C*@t have a nice evening together. Bravo.

Astounding Feats of Human Intelligence- NOW WITHOUT SARCASM!

Olympic artist attacks China's pomp and propaganda:

This is a link to an article in the Guardian about the designer of China's national stadium (known as the Bird's Nest), speaking out about the terrible state of human rights in China, and why he is going to boycott the Beijing Olympics (even though his stadium will be home to the opening ceremonies). A very interesting and inspiring read.

Guy LaFleur Disco Album

I don't think I need to say anything more.

Voronin [1-0] vs Toulouse

Voronin gets his first official goal for Liverpool on his full official debut. Not a bad way to open your account. Holy hell, this is a cracker. I reckon this dude's signing was a stroke of genius. What a little pony-tailed nugget!

I got nothing to say

Whattup. So, many of you may have noticed that this blog has featured nothing but football videos for...i dunno...134 posts in a row? Well, what can I say? I'm a lazy bitch.

I was gonna try and start this post with something un-football, but...screw that. The Prem has kicked off, i've gone into a football frenzy, and I'm Sopcasting my download limits to within an inch of their lives. TO the un-initiated, SopCast (and similar programs) let you watch tv from all over the world streaming live to your computer. In what can only be described as the biggest threat to my marriage since FIFA07 on xbox, I have been able to watch every single football match that my little heart desires. In a word it's friggin' brilliant. I recommend hitting up www.myp2p.eu for game listings and links.

In other football news, the mighty Rooney's Uncle FC fell at the semi-final stage of the cut-throat Brunswick Men's Division 1 Indoor Soccer League playoffs to our old nemisis, The Suicide Strikers. It was a close run thing, but we lost 8-6. It's too bad, too. We played really well. They just played better. For anyone who cares, I set up two and scored one. Probably my best offensive performance of the season. Too bad it didnt' really matter. Ah fuck it. The new season starts as soon as the playoffs are over. Which is next week. So, we get a whole week off before the mighty Uncle returns in hunt of glory once again.

Is anyone still reading this?

Yes. I know. I am a pathetic football nerd. If I have anything meaningful to say anytime soon, rest assured I will put it here. But I wouldn't hold your breath. Unless you like Andriy Voronin!

Ryan Babel Welcome to Liverpool FC

I watched the Liverpool season opener on the weekend, and I had heard about Ryan Babel and seen a bit, but when he came on he was an instant threat and changed the tempo of the game. And that was his first game ever in the Prem. If this guy gets comfortable, I feel bad for the defences trying to mark him. Watch this package. Holy hell.
