"Who do you think you are? I AM!" Pete Weber, championship bowler, can't decide on a catch phrase.

Liverpool today, man what a disappointment! They dominated Arsenal, took the first lead and just were not able to finish about half a million easy chances, including Dirk Kuyt's poor PK. RvP showed that you cannot give him even a sniff at the net because he will bury you.

I just do not see why we paid GBP20M for Stuart Downing. Yes he's fast and can get behind the fullbacks but his crosses never find their mark and when he gets close to goal with the ball he passes 99 times out of a hundred rather than shooting. And he shoots all the time from 20-30 yards out, always high and sometimes wide.

Like so many sports pages, the Boston Globe knowingly employs a troll for the purpose of ad views: "How could we all have been fooled? It's pretty clear now that Theo Epstein and Terry Francona were doofuses. They didn't know what they were doing."

dflem, I particularly like the look his wife shot him after he shouted that.

Not a fan of either club, but I did feel a bit for Arsenal, getting one back against the run of play. Something every other club has been doing to them in the last few seasons.
