You’ll Never Drink Alone

Kalju 0      Viktoria Plzeň 4   Full disclosure before we press on to a promise I must break. I am of Czech heritage. My great-great grandfather emigrated from a little village called Folmava, about 40-45 miles down the road from Plzen in what is now the Czech Republic, and settled in Wisconsin in 1856.…

Thick Slicing, Best Served With Beer….and Malt Vinegar

Hey LOOK!!!   It’s David Luiz!!   This is usually the stage of the game where I have to think of something clever to say. But good luck with that one on the day, I guess. We’ll ((or I’ll)) have to see what happens. If I can figure out a surefire way to hook up…

The Elusive W

In 2023, Chelsea’s newest owner becomes bored with his team winning everything.  He decides to try his hand with NASCAR.   Imagine that. The post-Roman Abramovich era. It will be upon us someday, hopefully not soon, assuming the inherent dysfunction amongst the board and middle management gets corrected.  But what will be our fate when…

One Too Many Magpies

Chelsea 0     Papiss  Cissé 2 I can keep this one short and not so sweet. Certain players for Chelsea, the usual suspects as it were  ((Malouda, Meireles, Danny Sturridge)), played like donkeys. Papiss Cissé for Newcastle played like the world class striker he’s become. And the result was a 0-2 loss to the…

Hotspurs Bugger Young Boys 4-0

I made a list of things to write about this week from the sporting world that taken as a whole have little to do with one another. But as usual, this does not stop me from trying to find some common thread. There simply HAS to a fearful symmetry somewhere in the interstices between Joey…
