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.

The Captain Sacrifices for the Good of the Team

Steven Gerrard has a pretty good life, he’s the reigning Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year award-winner, he’s the captain of Liverpool and he’s a key cog on the English national team, not too shabby.

As a teenager though, the then acne covered soccer star used to serve as the key wing-man for his cleaner faced buddies going for the ugly girls so that his teammates could score with the hotties. “I used to have to! I had a really spotty face. But since then it’s fair to say my standards have got a lot higher!” No wonder his teammates made him captain!

Now 28 years old, Gerrard has definitely upped his standards, marrying fashion journalist Alex Curran, who may not be the hottest WAG out there, but she’s still better-looking than what most guys who look like Gerrard get.
