Very good defense both ways. Not much space for players to work with offensively. It's going to take one amazing play to get on the board. United isn't even playing all that well and they look the better side. Chelsea is in need of some spark from the bench if they want to have a chance.

Nice on Rooney starting. Kind of surprised by Mourinho not starting Torres. If he can get to the form he was in late last season, Chelsea will be in good shape. Really surprised by Mata not starting again. He was one of the keys to the team down the stretch last year. Hard to argue with a successful manager, though. Dang, a heavyweight match this early in the season? I like it. Hope the game lives up to the energy/hype.

Wow, Swansea got hosed bigtime by a HORRIBLE call in the box, which made up for a HORRIBLE call in the box (ruled outside) in the first half. Why can't the official just get it right the first time? Spurs just don't look that great, but keep finding ways to win.

Can't wait to see the highlights on match of the day later for the City game. Shocking watching the ticker and the score changing as it did late in the game. How the heck did they give up 3?? Crazy. I guess I made a mistake by not watching that match on the laptop with the Spurs game on the TV. Huge game tomorrow. Can't wait. Fun weekend so far woohoo.

I watched the City game (City Supporter) Cardiff City played smart and used Set Pieces and a timely goal rebound to win.   City looked really bad in defending corner kicks and payed the price

Cool, thanks for the insight. Surprising, really. I'd love to have a guy like Lescott manning the box on set pieces. Tough day for Hart I figure. Eager to see the replay.

woo Sturridge is the man! Can't wait for Suarez to get back, but the man is making some plays. Going to be tough holding off Villa's attack in the 2nd half. I'm just waiting for Agbonlahor to get loose and find Benteke and make the D look bad. Been a pretty good game thus far.

Edit: woo! 6 points in 2 games. I like it. Mignolet making a game-saving stop 2 weeks in a row.

Entertaining match, but Sunderland attack has been poor in my opinion

Yeah, they are pretty bad. I'm shocked they scored. Altidore sure isn't getting any room to work. If they could get him some service, he can get it going.

They are reporting at half time that Sunderland has put a bid into Roma for Michael Bradley! That would be awesome. He's a pretty good offensive holding midfielder and gives good balls for an American.

Man, that stinks. I'm just shocked a broadcast company in the states is doing it right. We're pretty dang spoiled now and I sure as heck won't complain. This is how sports should be - accessible. It's nice to be able to watch a club every week rather than being at the mercy of whatever is put on every week. It's hard to really get into things when you can't at least follow a team or a player.

96 today in "always cloudy and rainy Portland."    crybaby

It always amuses me to see people who choose to live in the desert complain about heat.  It's kind of like Portlanders who complain about the rain.   retard


No one living in the desert is complaining.  Those who don't live here are commenting about the heat.   retard

Haha - in this episode of heat, I'm going to disagree a bit, although I'm not really complaining all that much, I figure. I do pretty well when it gets to about 100 here in Las Vegas, but over 110 and all bets are off. It was nice having the fridge AND AC go out during a couple of record breaking days a couple weekends back. It's been challenging walking my brother's dogs in the morning/evening - and planning all that around the sun. It's crazy when it's over 100 by 9 am and after 11 PM for multiple days - at least for this time of year. The heat has cut into playing some disc golf or doing something outside because it's just stupid hot out there. Went out to a casino the other day and the car baked in the parking lot to 124 degrees. That's just not something you ever really get used to. That all said, it's not that hard to adjust to or deal with versus say it raining every day for a week or stupid humidity and that. I'll take this over hurricane or blizzard season - it's a great excuse to catch up on doing stupid stuff around the house.

I still find it crazy that we've had it hotter than some spots in Arizona where it's normally way hotter by comparison. Seems NV is getting the worst of it. Dang air is stagnant as heck and doesn't look like it's going to break until around the weekend. It'd be nice for things to get back to normal, because I'm going mental not being as active as I want to be. It's just too dang hot. Spent a ton of time out in the record heat on Saturday - it was a really bad decision.

It's draft time. I guess I'd be more excited if I followed college football, but since I don't, I have no knowledge of incoming players.

I hope 49ers trade some of their picks away since they won't be able to sign all 14.

It's unbelievable how many picks the 9rs have. I can see them dealing for picks for next year or making a significant move UP. They sure have a lot of means to do so. Good situation to be in. They've also flown under the radar, I think, in coverage of the draft. I'm interested to see what they do.

Mmm love draft weekend. Got frozen pizzas and other junk food ready to go. Hopefully Ted Thompson makes some good moves. He's over-due to hit on a 1st round pick.
To be honest, I don't know this draft as well as I do in a normal year, but I think that's because I see a ton of 3rd/4th round talent all over the draft - and not a lot of 1st/2nd round talent. I just didn't do my normal study this off season due to it being a 'down' year for talent.

I'm enjoying following all the 'posturing' for the QB class. I don't see any of them being 1st rounders at all, but someone is going to flinch. I'm just curious as heck who will. The Rams 1st round pick from the RG3 trade last year is available and I think could be the spot where a team moves back into the first round  - actually, the 20s could see a ton of movement in trades. It's just that kind of draft.

I know it's awful, but I find him at his funniest when he IS being mean spirited.  Life's Too Short lampooned this perfectly by having he and Merchant act like complete assholes around everyone they met with in their office.  Plus, the scene with Liam Neeson trying out a stand up comedy routine based on AIDS has to be seen to be believed.

Nice! Someone else saw this. That part was simply amazing.
To tickle the 'evil' slapstick bone, my part was when Warrick was trying to get his awards off the top shelf of his former home. Crap, that had me crying. The things Gervais and Merchant are willing to do or try to do is awesome. I think that's what works so well with their podcast is that they're not laughing with Karl, they're laughing at him. Also, the Office really thrived off the mean-spirited comedy. Truly amazing stuff.

That's...odd.  It looks like Gervais is trying his hand at drama, as you mention.  The only problem is that apparently the only dramatic material he's had access to is a library of Hollywood films about the mentally challenged.  I hope I'm wrong, but this looks like a disaster.

Like the lightsaber, Karl Dilkington automatically makes the product 2 star quality. 2 stars is no disaster!

Heck of a start to MNF tonight.

Sheesh. It was a terrible game. 2 teams that likely won't contend, though, to be fair.
This preseason is very odd, to me. I have 2 games left to watch and I've had 0 things that have 'jumped' out at me - as far as things being interesting, exciting or saw something from a player I did not expect. This preseason has been extremely dull through 1 week. I'd say the biggest story is all the damn injuries. I don't recall it being this bad. Not this early. Last year was really bad - but this year seems much worse.

Other things I saw of note so far:
Rodgers, Big Ben and Cutler will be bludgeoned this year without significant advances in their pass protection. At least Pittsburgh looked very sharp in the run game blocking.
Russel Wilson and Luck looked pretty sharp for being rookies. Osweiller wasn't bad, either. Nick Foles played real well, also.

I can't wait for the next 2 pre-season games to really get a read on what teams are capable of early in the season. Teams aren't tipping their hands much - but I think I've seen a LOT more blitzes in preseason week 1 than in any preseason week ever.

Ah, and one other point. With the QB competition in Arizona - it looks like the team isn't playing 'NFL' speed when Kolb is under center - but they do when Jon Skelton is on the field. Granted, Zona is pretty bad, they are also very scrappy. Skelton should be making a move in his 3rd year. Afterall, he was projected as a 'project' at best type of QB. I still see him making some bad decisions in his reads. It is early in the preseason, for sure, that's something he's got to do better. But overall, I don't think the Cardinals players want Kolb to be their guy - you can see it in their body language. Odd, really.

Anyhow, can't wait for Thursday. Mmm football.

Watched Brazil look pretty weak, by their standards, and still blow out Cameroon.
Lotta teams have legit chances at winning gold in the Women's competition. In some regards, for the Olympics, the Women are more fun to watch. Then again, when is the US mens team competitive, except the Donovan team, in soccer in the Olympics?

All fired up for the men to get going tomorrow.
