The African Cup of Nations is off to a flying start with some great goals and all the drama one would expect from the continent’s major soccer tournament. For those not in the know, the ACN is the equivalent of the Euro which is being played this summer in Austria and Switzerland.
Check out my boy Glendon over at Football Roundtable for highlights and updates from Ghana including this wonder strike from Ghana’s Sulley Muntari. Click on the second link in the post. You can also check it here.

Mustafa will be rotating between Fiona’s and Nevada’s for the next month as American football is dead to him thanks to Brett Favre. A little known fact. The rates of domestic violence go up in Wisconsin on the days when the Packers lose. Last night was not a good night to be a child or woman in Wisconsin. I’m not sayin’, I’m just sayin’.
