Zidane - The son of a terrorist whore

Oliver Brown

At least one tabloid newspaper here in the UK is reporting that Materazzi called Zidane the son of a terrorist whore (he has Albanian roots - presumably on his mothers side) to cause the headbutt. If you’ve no idea what I’m talking about, Zinedine Zidane, apparently one of the best footballers in the world ended his career on a low note by getting sent off for headbutting an opponent in the final of the 2006 FIFA World Cup. Here are some images of the headbutt in all it’s glory - and then some… I don’t know where these images come from. If you can reasonably prove they’re yours I’ll give you credit. Zinedine Zidane, football, Zizou

Crack Craig Charles

Oliver Brown

Apparently Craig Charles was filmed smocking crack in a taxi. The most annoying aspect is the tabloids used headlines referring to him as a Coronation Street star. Surely some clever Red Dwarf pun wouldn’t have been that difficult to come up with… drugs, Lister, cocaine, News

Interesting possibility in the World Cup

Oliver Brown

I recently asked a football loving friend what would happen if the teams were tied at the end of the group stages. I mean completely tied (i.e. if there were no goals for instance). He didn’t know. Well unfrtounately the answer is that acomittee draws lots to decide who goes through. Well in an interesting twist if England beat Sweden 2-0 and Trinidad & Tobago beat Paraguay 1-0, then lots will be drawn to decide which of Sweden and Trinidad & Tobago go though. Group B after such a result would be:

If each of the teams in those matches scores the same number of goals in excess of those numbers the same result occurs (e.g. England 4-2 Sweden, Trinidad & Tobago 3-2 Paraguay. Football, FIFA, World Cup, England, Sweden, Paraguay, Group B, Trinidad and Tobago

ECW One Night Stand

Oliver Brown

Since I got MCE working I’ve been watching TV on a one day delay - that way I don’t have to actually remember when things are on. One such show was ECW One Night Stand, which has definitely been the best “WWE” pay-per-view* in a long time. And 90% of the reason was the fans who just never shut up. The funniest example was the Cena/RVD match. After a whole match of the fans tearing Cena apart, he manages a good move that I haven’t seen him do before. The crowds response? “You still suck”. For a complete review check out Online Onslaught. ECW, WWE, wrestling, One Nigh Stand

Some Stargate stuff

Oliver Brown

I’ve started a new page listing some of the story arcs from Stargate. That is it lists all the relevent episodes for the story arcs (useful if like me you own most of them and want tory and make sense of them without other stuff in between). Stargate, sci-fi, SG-1, Atlantis
