'Tis King Eric's 49th birthday today, so we thought we'd celebrate by revisiting his finest hour; his appearance on live French debate show Coté Tribune back in  2001 in which, while under questioning about his infamous kung-fu assault at Selhurst Park, Cantona takes flight after being riled by a journalist describing said incident as 'unforgivable', a rant which ultimately sees him vowing to do the Pope an extreme urinary disservice then promising every journalist in the land the same treatment.

“Why Always Me?”

Soccer Politics Blog at related • 2 views

Of all the moments in the surreal, simultaneously compelling and slightly sickening Manchester City vs. Manchester United game today, there is one that will probably stay rooted in our imaginations for at least a little while: Balotelli's cheeky question: "Why Always Me?" after his first goal. Like the most conversation-worthy and striking moments in football, this one is fascinating because it seems at once funny and irritating, appropriate and trangressive.

Happy Birthday Heather

Today was the 34th birthday of veteran U.S. defender Heather Mitts. Seems like just yesterday she was that fresh-faced kid of out Florida via Cincinnati trying to earn her way onto the U.S. WNT, and now she is preparing for her third Olympics (she's still fresh-faced, BTW).

It is tradition that if it is someone's birthday, at the end of U.

The birthdays are coming fast and furious in Guatemala for the U.S. U-17 WNT, which leads to a conundrum for the team administrator. Do you get four cakes or one cake? Or maybe two cakes and cut them in half to make four half cakes?

In any event, Happy Birthday to:

Victoria Beckham turns 38 today and we're severely unsure of how we feel about it.

Why should we fight our tepid feelings when we can waste time drawing comparisons between VB and her second oldest, Romeo, based on their baby pictures instead?

Birthday Boy: Brooklyn Beckham

David and Victoria's eldest turned 13-years-old over the weekend an age that typically brings an end to a child's I-don't-mind-kissing-my-dad-on-the-lips-whilst-taking-a-ride-on-his-shoulders era.

The whole family celebrated Brooklyn's coming of age on Sunday, which started with a boys-only outing to the LA Lakers game (they ate nachos, chatted up Denzel Washington)Â followed by a "huge party" at the Beckham compound.

Cristiano Ronaldo: The name to remember from day 10 of Euro 2012

Dirty Tackle at related • 0 views

For Portugal's all-important final group stage match against the Netherlands, Cristiano Ronaldo sent underachieving twin brother Barry home and continued to live up to comparisons to Fernando Torres (who had a brace against Ireland) by scoring both goals in his side's 2-1 win. That confirmed Portugal's place in the quarterfinals and served as a final piece of evidence that this Netherlands team, which lost all three of their Group of Death matches after scoring more than any other team in qualifying, was terrible.

Keep calm: but get a little bit excited!

Wish the NHS a happy birthday

Got this through today :

The NHS celebrates its 63rd birthday this week, with public satisfaction at an all-time high. But the coalition government's proposals will put everyone at risk. Including you.

Don't be fooled. Even after "listening", the government's legislation would let private companies grab any part of the NHS, putting profits before patients.

The team sang Happy Birthday while Joe blew out the candle that was placed in a big bowl of ice cream. He gave a speech that cited many, many reasons why he was excited to turn 17.

Then the team enjoyed chocolate, vanilla and strawberry ice cream in celebration.
