Video delights:: Classic YouTube from the Guardian includes a clip of my favorite Liverpool strike duo, Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush, and this stunning clip of Holland's 1988 World Cup goal vs England that took 24 touches end to end from the Dutch without any England intervention.

I believe Holland's goal was actually in a friendly; 1988 wasn't a World Cup year. Still, beautiful football. Reminds me of the second goal Argentina scored against Serbia & Montenegro in last summer's World Cup. I believe there were 24 or 25 passes for Argentina leading up to Cambiasso's goal.

Ooo, you are correct, holden. Funny I didn't notice that, given my nickname and all. Good catch, and thanks for the clip. I love that nice backheel at the end to set up Cambiasso to first-time it into the net. And that was an actual World Cup match, too. Lovely. More fun clips, anyone?

A couple of weekends ago I took a team from work into the local dragon boat race. In the "IT Cup" final, our competitors in the next lane rigged their drummer up with a head-mounted camera. Here is the video that he took. My team is in the red shirts, briefly visible before the start. This team nipped us at the finish.

Yo Amateur, I think I got motion sickness from watching that video. Looks a bit frenetic, but fun.

Here is the video that he took. Fake.

It's not a video, but it is a screenshot to a very funny Wiki entry for Gary Roberts.
