It’s Last Call for New Year’s Eve eve. I feel like I’ll be happy to be shut of 2009 all things considered, despite it not being such a horrible year for me personally. I guess that’s a decent theme for the evening, what did you like about 2009? It can be personal, public, what have you.
So what happened today? In the footy world, we had some Premier League blowouts as Arsenal stomped Portsmouth and Manchester United whipped Wigan. In the Scottish Premier League, two contests saw Hearts defeat Motherwell while Kris Boyd scored FIVE for Glasgow Rangers as they dismantled Dundee United.
In other news, Mike Leach was fired “for cause” from Texas Tech, just two days before their bowl game against Michigan State. Chad Ochocinco called out superstar cornerback Darelle Revis of the Jets, saying he “couldn’t cover him in a phone booth”. Finally, Bobby Bowden ran his final practice as head coach of Florida State before they take on West Virginia. Right now we have Bowling Green/Idaho on the Mothership, followed by Arizona taking on Ndamokung Suh and Nebraska in the nightcap.
Have at it in comments, kids. We’ll be around I’m sure.
