Vincent Kompany Took An Extremely Audacious Shot Today

I could be convinced that this is the greatest shot attempt in the history of soccer. Once Vincent Kompany continued to juggle the ball forward, he had to attempt this, right?

Andros Townsend Waves Hi To Media Hater After Great International Goal

Andros Townsend isn't a great player, but then again, England aren't a great team, so it isn't too much of a surprise that the Spurs winger was called up during this international break, nor that he managed to blast home the tying goal in today's 1-1 draw against Italy.

A Great Pale Ale From A Shady, Pale State

I ran into an old friend Sunday afternoon, and he asked what I had planned for this Wednesday.
