Ireland and France Get Into International Squabble Over Soccer

According to the Irish Soccer Insider these letters between some minor-level French and Irish government flunkies have caused something of an international to-do, these seem fake to me, but they’re funny regardless so, enjoy!

Jerry Jones is in Da Club

Following the Packers’ victory over the Cowboys this past Sunday who could blame Dallas’ owner for wanting to have a few dozen drinks. Drinking affects your decision-making skills you know, clearly in this photo, because I can’t imagine a sober Jerry Jones would ever allow this picture to be taken.

Is There Anything Baby Placenta CAN’T Do?

Following a former teammate’s recommendation, Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie is headed to Belgrade in search of an alternative healing method for his injured ankle.

The Dutchman is, with his coach’s, team’s and doctor’s permission, going to be visiting with Mariana Kovacevic, a Serbian housewife who previously worked on Van Persie’s one-time teammate Danza Lazovic’s injured hamstring. Initially ruled out for 5 weeks, after seeing the Serbian healer Lazovic was back out on the pitch in a week.

“She is vague about her methods but I know that she first massages you for a long time with placenta fluid,” Van Persie said. “I am going to give it a try.

“It can’t do any harm and if it helps, it helps. I’ve been in contact with Arsenal’s chief physio about it. The club has allowed me to have this treatment done.”

Gross. I almost think I’d rather be injured than have baby placenta rubbed on me. Unless there’s stem cells in there, in which case, gimme gimme gimme.

Nowitzki Hits the Game-Winner in OT

Dirk Nowitzki is really good at basketball, for example, in the waning seconds of last night’s Mavericks/Bucks contest he took the ball to the foul line and despite a defender being right in his face, Dirk NAILS the shot to give the Mavs the win in overtime. Awesome!

Everything is Cheaper in Michigan

The auction for the Pontiac Silverdome has ended and there is a winner, an unnamed Canadian company that intends to keep the venue open for sports. The 80,000 seat arena was sold for a mere $583,000 despite it costing nearly $55 million to build  in 1975. Talk about value!

The stadium’s yearly upkeep costs nearly three times more than its purchase price, costing over $1.5 million a year.

I can’t believe no one bought this for me, look at how cheap it was! I would have thrown an AWESOME party there too…
