Cocaine's a hell of a drug.

That's great news... but Jesus, are those comments depressing.

I just want to thank/ blame this site for the fact that 6.5 years after the 2006 World Cup, I watch enough fútbol that I went and bought Crabbie's Ginger Beer for today's Merseyside Derby. The thanks for giving me an interest in the sport; the blame because I've tried ginger beer once before (non-alcoholic at that) and half the glass left me feeling like I'd just had an upper endoscopy.

Blame on, man. With fans like us, who needs enemas?

Seeing how that game is going, you should probably keep drinking.

The baseball season begins tonight at 11 p.m. Eastern, when Keith Olbermann opens the first pack of Topps 2014 Baseball cards on his ESPN2 show. The cards hit stores tomorrow.

Ginger's good for nausea, I understand. Yes, keep drinking.

Yeah, definitely didn't buy enough. Loved the first goal partially came from Gareth Barry marking Romelu Lukaku's knee. Straight red for me.

Barry being sent off for injuring one of his own teammates would have been funny.

Also funny - Props to the Manchester United's fans sense of humour last night, for singing "we're staying up" as their win lifted them to the magic 40 points.
