Ryan Giggs scored against Everton today, moving his record to twenty-three straight top-division seasons with a goal.

Soiled my trousers watching that big bird vid. The wrangler was doing OK with the recapt. until he decided that he had to be back on the rug and at the perch by the time the anthem singer got to "brave".

No need to rush so, monsieur. You get to the nap when you get to the nap.

Wish it had been Gary Bettman holding the bird. I would have paid money to see that.

Was the Villa v West Ham match the worst top flight match of all time? I know the conditions weren't perfect, but the standard of play, particularly in the first half, was abysmal.

I'd vote for vice-versa. A pale-faced Bettman held petrified by the talons of a seven foot wide raptor could be a rallying point for future NHL lockouts.

But what a fantastic video, tommy. My wife heard me laughing my ass off from upstairs and I got to watch the video again with her. The announcers laughing hysterically didn't hurt, either.

I use a video of last April's Aston Villa-Sunderland game to threaten my kids.

That's interesting, because I have an old 2008 Maple Leafs-Islanders video on hand just for when my future child acts up.

Condors are of the vulture family, and thus do not hunt live prey. They feed on carrion - that is, dead things. Hmmmm... Be afraid, Gary Bettman, be afraid.
