    In the next few weeks Liverpool will likely win the English Premier League for the first time in their history.

    It was actually on the request of Noodles and such like that there was a seperate sports forum created. They didn't want to be be dragged down with the banality of it all in their beloved GF. They had so much more to talk about.

    I thought Liverpool won the English League forty or fifty years ago. How many English teams are left in in Europe?

    Note: Grumpy Old Geezer made his first cameo two weeks ago as anticipated by a post in the Spirituality Forum...

    That waste old 1st division not the new money soaked premier league. But yes they were top in their day.

    What's the meaning of slandering my name in your forum location then?

    Highly recommended for football fans and fans of well written documentaries:

    ESPN 30 for 30 - HILLSBOROUGH, Directed by Daniel Gordon

    On April 15, 1989, 96 people died, hundreds were injured and thousands traumatized at Hillsborough Stadium. See the tragedy through the eyes of those there that day, many of whom spoke publicly for the first time.

    It will be available online at Netflix Et. al. soon enough.

    "sports, culture and whatever..." There you go Bob, all 3.

    Also - if you like documentaries - Man on Wire. Excellent.

    And their opponent is Chelsea? Which team is favored to win?

    Hardly "slandering", dive. It's affectionate. Few weeks ago when I found the avatar we were have a lighthearted give and take in the Spirituality Forum. My last post of the day was a mention of the Grumpy Old Man to the effect that he would keep an eye on things until morning. "divegeesterville" I found in an online search with several hits over the past few years.

    The Texas Rangers have gone into 1st place in their division and league after a 3 game sweep of the Oakland A's.

    The AL Texas Rangers are in 2nd place out of all of the MLB teams only trailing the NL Milwaukee Brewers by 3 games who are in different leagues.

    After tonight that could all change again since the Oakland A's are actually tied with the Rangers for 1st place.

    darv did say "sports, culture and whatever..." so here's an entertaining poem by E.E. Cummings I hope you'll enjoy:

    Nobody Loses All The Time

    nobody loses all the time

    i had an uncle named
    Sol who was a born failure and
    nearly everybody said he should have gone
    into vaudeville perhaps because my Uncle Sol could
    sing McCann He Was A Diver on Xmas Eve like Hell Itself which
    may or may not account for the fact that my Uncle

    Sol indulged in that possibly most inexcusable
    of all to use a highfalootin phrase
    luxuries that is or to
    wit farming and be
    it needlessly
    added

    my Uncle Sol’s farm
    failed because the chickens
    ate the vegetables so
    my Uncle Sol had a
    chicken farm till the
    skunks ate the chickens when

    my Uncle Sol
    had a skunk farm but
    the skunks caught cold and
    died and so
    my Uncle Sol imitated the
    skunks in a subtle manner

    or by drowning himself in the watertank
    but somebody who’d given my Uncle Sol a Victor
    Victrola and records while he lived presented to
    him upon the auspicious occasion of his decease a
    scruptious not to mention splendiferous funeral with
    tall boys in black gloves and flowers and everything and
    i remember we all cried like the Missouri
    when my Uncle Sol’s coffin lurched because
    somebody pressed a button
    (and down went
    my Uncle
    Sol

    and started a worm farm)

    E. E. Cummings (1894 - 1962)
