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.

Didier Drogba Gets Jump Kicked

Sunday’s match was a fierce battle pitting the English Premier League leading Chelsea versus third-place Manchester United; still tied 0-0, Chelsea’s star striker Didier Drogba went hard after a loose ball bounding towards the penalty box. Man U defender Jonny Evans was coming strong from the opposite angle and jumped in to corral the ball. While in the air, he led with his foot and (mostly) inadvertently kicked Didier right in the chest. No dive needed on this play, watch the replay where Drogba’s chest gets stabbed with a pair of cleats. Yowch!

Brusha Brusha Brusha

British dentistry is usually an easy target for comedians so one fan at the Chelsea and Manchester United match this weekend tried to change the public perception. Taking in a hard-fought soccer from the stands shouldn’t mean you have to suffer through an unclean mouth. Fortunately, he brought his own toothbrush with him. Unless they sell them at the concessions stands, in which case, I have a series of jokes about British dentistry I’d like to make.

Give an Assist to the Beach Ball

Sunderland Beach Ball GoalDuring Saturday’s Liverpool/Sunderland match in the English Premier League the Liverpool goalie was powerless to stop a shot from Sunderland’s Darren Bent early in the game.

The goal, which proved to be the difference in the game, was controversial because after Bent shot the ball it ricocheted off  a beach ball that had fallen on the field, before redirecting into the goal. The league officials later said that there should have been a drop-ball after it hit a beach ball en route to the goal.
