It’s Sunday. I’m at work. Italy and Spain are strolling around a pitch in Vienna looking as if this were a friendly rather than a quarter final match in the European Championships. If they’re not going to be bothered today, I may not as well. To be honest, I’m still a bit gutted about the Dutch loss to Russia last night- but at least it was a quality match.
In the meantime, it’s a bit of a slow news weekend all around, but some folks have managed to pick out some quality goodness:
-The Guvnor’s Coming To Ewood Park (The Guardian): Paul Ince has become the first black manager in the Premier League after being appointed manager of the Blackburn Rovers. That’s right, he beat out Big Sam Allardyce for the jobby job, and here’s hoping the former England captain and MK Dons manager will make it through his three year contract.
-Just let him bloody go! If Cristiano Ronaldo wants to go to Real Madrid, then let him- if only so that writers can stop wasting column inches online and in the sports pages on this guy. Yeah, he’s a really good player, yeah, he’s probably not a very nice chap- we know, we know. I found this fantastic letter to Cristiano from a ManU fan, and well- it says it all. (Manchester Red)
-How many sports blogs are written by women? Let me rephrase this: How many sports blogs are obviously written by women? Do you care? As a woman footie blogger, and a fan of bloggery in general, I was stoked when Anna of This Is Extra Time sent over this link to an interview with Andrea from Ladiesdotdotdot about blogging whilst female.
