I didn't want to mar the Front Page with any of USA Womens Soccer scuffle, but this clip of Marta's goal needed to be shared. Oh! You've seen it. I don't give a crap. Watch it again. I believe her touch is what the kids nowadays call "fucking bananas".

Seems like a good time to link to chicobangs kicking ass on Cash Cab. Congrats, brother! I'll admit, though, I'd never considered putting Baileys on my corn flakes.

Super, chico, just super! Seriously, good job. Now put that cash away! You're in the big city. You were just flashing the wad everywhere. Man!

chico rules! I had no idea you were a super media mogul. Didn't we do a locker room interview?

Great on Cornflakes!

Nice one, Chico! You won $1,400. but how much was the cab ride? lol

Yo chico -- I hope you cut your shout-out boy in on the Talented Mr. Ripley $200 cash money. Nice work, indeed.

I think chico should donate his winnings to the SpoFi EPL fantasy league championship.

nice chico.

Thanks everyone. The cash they give you in the cab is fake. They're not idiots. They mail you a check a couple of weeks later. And they taped this the week I lost my job, so that money went straight to rent. Which kind of sucks, actually.

Did they take taxes out, or is that up to you? Since I've never won money, I don't know how that works.

Bravo, chicobangs! Hope the job situation has been cleared up or does so soon.

Nope. I filled out a W-4, so the IRS knows about it, but they just sent me a check for the full amount. I'm sure they couldn't be bothered for a one-time thing. I'll have to declare it and pay taxes on it later. For the first half of the year, I was making good coin, though, so I'm not too concerned about this bumping me into another bracket or anything. This was Cash Cab, after all, not Who Wants To Be A Millionaire or something.

Yo chico, awesome. PS: Either Lauren Jackson or I could have helped you on the Billabong question. You still don't have her phone number?

Hey, sorry to hear about the job loss, chico. Hope you're well-situated on the employment side now.

posted by worldcup2002 at 11:35 PM on September 28, 2007

I'm jealous. I've wanted to catch the Cash Cab ever since I first saw it (it'd help if I ever made it to NYC). Good on ya mate! Hope the employment situation got resolved.

I was about to start a link dump just for Woody Austin, but since you're already here...

That was just plain frightening, jg.

No game tonight. (Also, awesome job, Chico.)

That footiemap is awesome goddam. Frankly, I think it would make an excellent FPP.

Don't say you're a Sox fan in NY.

jg, the Fenway Dance Team video was great. Now we know Francona's reason for leaving Beckett in for a complete game; nobody wanted to see Paplebon come out of the bullpen in his tutu. Fatty, the Kevin Everett video had to be a setup of the sports anchor by someone behind the cameras. Nonetheless, I'm having trouble typing because I'm still laughing. It is priceless.

You have to admit modern medicine is amazing stuff.

YFM- Damn funny stuff! On a related note, does anyone know how to get urine stains out of office furniture?
