Martin O'Neill resigns as Aston Villa manager : Just five days before the start of the Premier League season. Why did he do it? Where is he off to?
SportsFilter is a sponsor of Ben Saunders's Scott Antarctic Expedition 2011-2012: About three years ago, I put up a 100 bucks in SportsFilter's name for Saunders SOUTH expedition (unpowered walk from Antarctica to the South Pole and back) in 2008. When that was postponed, I was offered get a refund but chose to maintain the donation for the expedition, whenever it occurred. I've been keeping tabs since then and just discovered that SOUTH is now the Scott Antarctic Expedition 2011-2012. We're a sponsor for Mile 27, which means that SportsFilter's name will be printed on the team's sledges and the flag that will be planted on the South Pole, and the front page of the expedition site will display the SportsFilter name on the day that the team is on mile 27 of the 1800-mile journey. Second time lucky?
I invented the vuvuzela.: Meet Freddie Maake.
Obama is a soccer fan.: West Ham invite Obama to watch a game at Upton Park. Apparently, he watched a Hammers game in 2003 while visiting his half-sister in London (article doesn't say if it was live, home, away or on the telly). Obama's older daughter plays on a soccer team. Change we can believe in.
Mo' bugs, Mo' problemz.: Just some functional and usability stuff I'm seeing as I get back into using the site.
