Jay Glazer is unhappy with ESPN.

I don't get it.

Oh, it's hilarious. ESPN has a real problem crediting reporters outside of the Mothership that break big stories. When it's one of their guys breaking a story, then you bet that you know the name of the journalist that did the breaking. When it's someone outside of their realm (like Jay Glazer), then it's just some random source that broke the story.

Okay, thanks. Now I understand. That's typical ESPN. That's how they treat sports they don't have a contract to air as well.

Have we linked the Princess Bride episode of ESPN NFL Kickoff here yet?

Well, that was a bit good from Ibrahimovic. (Link won't stay up, but anyway.)

It's still up. Eastern Europe cares not for your intellectual property laws.

/In Bosnia a few months ago, and the local economy seems to be based on selling copies of Ibrahimovic's autobigraphy ("I, Zlatan", I presume) in all the bookshops and Edin Dzeko's replica shirt in all the markets.

Vaguely related, who knew Eden Hazard wasn't just the Tree Adam was supposed to avoid?

I could listen to an hour of just Philippe Auclair saying Eden's name.

Well, that was a bit good from Ibrahimovic. (Link won't stay up, but anyway.)

And that's still only his second or third best goal.

They asked Gerrard yesterday how he'd rate his own international career and Gerrard said "a six, or seven."

They then ran off to ask Zlatan.

"Ten."

Which surprised me, because I felt sure he'd say "eleven."

Just in case anyone hasn't seen Zlatan's other best goal in the world ever.

Or this one, which is a personal favourite.

Zlatan likes to do six impossible things before breakfast.

Ibrahimovic is football's version of Pavel Bure.

He's never been considered the best in his sport during his career, but what he does (score goals), he's one of the best of all time.

The Guardian posted a collection of Ibra specials today.

The first comment calls him "a rich man's Dimitar Berbatov" which is funny.

The Guardian also has a nice article about his development.

I could listen to an hour of just Philippe Auclair saying Eden's name.

Zekondead.
