Get out the way Ref! | 6 Match Ban for Sasho

After the penalty was called, referee Stefan Spasov went to spot the ball but Sasho had other ideas when he delivered a brutal hockey-style check to the ref sending him to the ground:

The check earned Sasho a six-game suspension from the Bulgarian Football Union and a fine of $1,500.

The incident happened in a professional Bulgarian soccer match between Cherno More Varna and Lavski Sofia playing for the Bulgarian cup.

If Tiger Woods had a 14ft Driver

I’m not sure what an “unofficial Guinness World record” is — isn’t the whole point of Guinness to make the record official? — but Michael Furrh of Arlington, Texas claims to have it. He recently smacked a golf ball with a 14-foot-2.5-inch driver, and hit it 144 yards down the fairway at Rolling Hills Golf Club.

 


Wigan Confirm Roger “El Chino” Espinoza Deal | Premier League

The 26-year-old Honduras international has long been linked with a move and is set to swap Major League Soccer for the Barclays Premier League when his contract expires at the end of the year. Espinoza is a versatile player who can play in either defence or midfield and he impressed at this summer’s Olympics with his performance against Brazil.

“We’re working really hard to try to make it happen and we’re looking forward to seeing if we can get that one done successfully,” Martinez said.

“There are a few steps: there is the work permit, there are certain aspects we need to fulfil in the paperwork but Roger is a player that we’ve been following for a long, long time.

“We’ve seen him enjoying his football in the Olympic Games recently with Honduras, and in the World Cup as well he’s been an important part of that group of players with (Wigan defender) Maynor Figueroa. He would be a real asset for us.

“But until January 1 we can’t do anymore than wait and make sure we prepare ourselves for the steps we’ve got ahead to make him a Wigan Athletic player.”


A very Young Tiger Feeds a Fox then predicts he’ll be the Michael Jordan of Golf

“The Tiger Woods we met was a likeable young man with an acute sense of his own destiny.”

But as good as this piece is for the above reasons, I’m still more fascinated by the sight of Woods sitting near a fairway, feeding a random forest creature which sidles up to him.

Tiger Woods, the fox whisperer?

Never mind.

H/T to CBS’s Shane Bacon, who found this video in the dusty archives.

Young Tiger:

“Since I’m black I might be even bigger than Jack Nicklaus. I might be even bigger than him, to the blacks. I might be sort of like a Michael Jordan in basketball. Something like that.”

Tiger, on race (at about the 3:15 mark in the video):

“Every time I go to a major country club, I always feel it. You can always sense it. People always staring at you, ‘What are you doing here? You shouldn’t be here.’ When I go to Texas or Florida, you always feel it because they say, ‘Why are you here?’ ‘Not supposed to be here.’ And that’s probably because that’s where all the slavery was.”

 

 


Hockey Game Invaded by 25,000 Teddy Bears

What are the chances of 25,000 people at an ice hockey game all having a teddy bear with them?

Pretty slim, we think you’d agree. Unless it’s a junior Canadian ice hockey game – in which case, it turns out, it’s a tradition.

“The idea is to collect thousands of bears to be distributed to kids in need,” reports BuzzBishop. “It’s a great event that packs the house each year.”

 


Chelsea continue Brazilian revolution | Premier League | Transfers

LONDON (Reuters) – Chelsea have agreed terms with Brazil’s Fluminense for the transfer of 18-year-old defender Wallace, the Premier League club said on Tuesday.

Wallace, a Brazil under-20 international, was part of the under-17 team that won the South American championship last year and were fourth at the World Cup at the same level.

He made his senior debut at 17 and helped Fluminense win the Brazilian league championship, the Rio State League and the Guanabara Cup.

He will officially join Chelsea in the January transfer window but will remain with Fluminense until the end of the season.

Brazil – Denmark, FIFA U-17 World Cup Mexico 2011: Though their opener had some luck about it, Brazil’s second and third, scored by Ademilson and Wallace, were delightful.


Cesc Fabregas, Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero Launch Puma ‘This is the nature of performance.’ Range

Football. Why do we do it?

Why do we have to kick it?
Why does it mean so much to us?
And why can we never stop playing it?
Because it’s in our nature to perform.
And the better we perform, the more we enjoy it.

silvergreenviolet

So now that we’ve taken the mystical journey into the human spirit, what have we discovered? Speed, Power and Control – this is the holy trinity of the Nature of Performance. Every footballer is born to play with one of these characteristics. And we design boots to take each of these elements to the next level.

Agüero has always been a Speed Junkie. Quick mind, lightning fast feet and the ability to beat defenders into the space – speed is in his blood. If it’s in your nature to be first to every 50/50 ball and leave the opposition in the dust, the new lightweight and responsive evoSPEED is the boot for you.

Liverpudlian Guy Chambers, who is producing the charity single, hopes the single can raise £1million – if it reaches the No 1 spot after official release on December 17. Reports the Dailymail

Move Over Joseph Barton | The French Accent is Catching On

McAlister’s Toulouse earned a victory over Clermont at the weekend, with the former All-Black kicking 15 points, but after the game he was still being questioned about a try that nearly didn’t come about because of a decision he made in the heat of the moment.

Possibly intimidated by the line of questioning and possibly taking his cue from Joey’s linguistic exploits last week, McAlister’s accent took on a native twang when he gave his response to the questioner.

McAlister’s bit of ‘Frenglish’ is nowhere near as bad as Joey Barton’s accent and not even on the same level as Schteve McLaren’s double Dutch, but it’s still bad enough for McAlister to cringe when he has a listen back and for his team –mates and friends to have a good laugh at his expense.


Video of Elgin fan dancing at Ibrox Goes Viral | Scottish Football

Jenny, of Nairn, said she had no idea she was being filmed and was “mortified” to find out she was on TV.

“I was there myself. I drove from Nairn to Elgin and got on the supporters bus.

“I totally went for it. I thought it was time I let myself go.

“When I’m in a crowd I seem to be at my best.”

She added: “It was good crack on the way back.

“I was mortified. I didn’t know there was a camera on me.

“I didn’t want to make a fool of myself, I just wanted to let myself go.”
