England Reaches First Final Since 1966

And then said: That's 19 tournaments without a final.

England has not qualified for every World Cup since 1966, missing 74, 78, and 94 in the US.
They also have not qualified for every Euro since 1966, missing 72, 76, 84, and 08.
I think the math then works out.

SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

I can't remember which Euro game and am guessing it was Derek Rae, but...
An announcer was talking about some player's off-the-field good deeds and mentioned he had a meeting with a name I did not initially recognize. A second later, I figured he was talking about Barack Obama. I am not sure if he said his last name, it may have been just Barack.
I am still dumbfounded how you could mess that name up. I understand if you have no idea who the man is, but if you are trying to name drop...

Edmonton Ex-Eskimos Unveil New Name

According to Massey Ratings Mascot Search this is the first professional team with the name.
23 high schools use this mascot, including one a few miles from where I use to live and once refereed a basketball game.
