Funnily enough I'm drinking whisky but not watching the nationals.

God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

No I don't think the Scottish football fans are inherently violent per se, they learned it all from the trip to the World Cup in South America...I mean look what happens if you score an own goal in Columbian Football

Jason Bay made his return to the Mets off the DL in style. 1 hit, 2 runs, and an in-field home run off an Astros error, in a 9-1 Mets win.

EDIt: Want to know how obnoxious Philadelphia Phillies fans are? They booed the robot that threw out the opening pitch.

Our newest AFL club the Gold Coast Suns finally won their first game yesterday afternoon. On the down side, I am now torn between supporting them and the Brisbane Lions.

Mets and Phillies tied 1-1 and they are in extra innings. Much as I like a game that keeps going until someone wins, I need to get up 6am to open the restaurant.
