Happy Friday!
Yes the weekend is here, and NO FOOTBALL!!!! What to do! Well there is Arena Football(possibly), NCAA Basketball(not unless I really have to), Ah, GOLF!(maybe if I'm hung over and need a nap), How about the Senior Bowl(nah, If I want football that doesn't mean anything, I'll stick with the Arena football), There's Boxing(yeah but, a NBA game may breakout). Well what's a guy to do, can't clean the house, wait, here it is . The 4th round of the FA Cup!!! Yes that's right English Football(notice I didn't call it Soccer). A whole weekend of competition, and as a matter of fact I may get a six pack of Guinness("Brilliant") for the occasion. Yes I know the first game starts at 6am, what's your point! So if your in a sports quandry this weekend and you get Fox Sports World, give it a shot! Unless you just can't wait for Sunday's PBA(That's Bowling folks) Birmingham Open!
But somebody from England has to tell me, what would you rather have The FA Cup or win the Premier League Title? Or just take any cup they throw at you!

Thanks to all who sent in comments this week, especially those who tried to decipher the speech to text. Thanks to Ms. Ralph who thought my kitties were "beautiful", and they are, when they're not begging for food, or yelping in the middle of the night.
But the comment of the week goes to Libby for the nice comment about how refreshing it was to hear a "guy" say how communication is important in the whole love thing!
Just remember self-communication is equally important, about the things you want in love, life, and beyond! Because remember the person you deal with the most is----YOU!

Folks have a great weekend!
That's all for now,
Until next time,

Actually, I'm looking forward to a sports-free weekend because Lord knows next weekend will be all-Super Bowl-all-the-time. I look at this weekend as a breather. Besides, my team (Titans) never made it to the postseason.

A sports free weekend! That's kind of like non-alcholic beer isn't it?

I am of the belief we should never have a weekend without at least ONE good sporting event. I don't know what I'm going to do this weekend. And, no, I'm not joking...

You know what, that made me think. My wife just got a job with Comcast, and by the end of next month we'll get free cable and internet, with ALL the channels, most of which we don't normally get. I guess that will include Fox Sports, (just checked my Zap2It channel line up and it looks promising!), so I will be able to reconnect with the English footy I grew up with and haven't seen much of since moving to the USA.

I hope Newcastle can hang on in the competition until I get the channel..... Looks like they did OK today.

Cheers Peter. Enjoy your Guiness!

Premier League title is obviously the one us fans and the players want as it's the portal to the Champions League, which also means big bucks for the team.

The FA Cup is special though, and every club wants to do well in it. Judging the by the team Rafa Benitez (Liverpool manager) put out against Burnley in the previous round though you'd think that the big sides may have lost interest.

There's another couple of games for you to watch tomorrow aswell...Oldham v Bolton and Chelsea v Birmingham, should be good.

LOL ! You summed up the other sports pretty much as I feel about them.
