Usually Chimp handles the Constitutional and keeps it blog heavy. However I didn’t get a chance to hit everything I wanted this morning so here are some links. I promise Chimp will be back with a legit, blog-lovin’ Constitutional next week.
Barcelona/Argentina winger Lionel Messi is dating Argentina’s 2006 World Cup mascot and she could very well be a he. (Probably NSFW – The essentials are covered up but not by much)
Mmmm statutory crepe. Different area code rule goes for statutory rape and possession of kiddie porn? If you’re a diplomat, it do.
Jason Whitlock throws Sunday Night Football under the bus. Does that qualify as bus-on-bus crime? He’s right however I’m not so sure about the “interest” reason. We might dig a little deeper into this over the weekend or more likely on Monday.
Spare some change for Chris Henry?
Hopefully there are double knockouts in every fight.
This Gold Cup match determined once and for all which nation is the greatest on earth. Mexico or Honduras.
The Deuce bows in Honduras’ general direction and we salute our new overlords.
Oh yeah and the US won too.
Several fans were tossed from an exhibition match between China and Real Salt Lake last Thursday for waving a Tibetan flag.
Some of the Chinese players stepped off the field early in the second half and refused to play again until the flags were put away.
The fans put away the Tibetan flags, as well as flags of Taiwan and a sign referring to China’s Tiananmen Square protest in 1989, but brought them out again later in the game.
Real Salt Lake spokesman Trey Fitz-Gerald said the fans were kicked out for being disruptive. He said they were more focused on harassing the Chinese players than making a political statement.
“This is a case where we invited this team here, and we were their host, and we needed to be diplomatic,” Fitz-Gerald said.
It would be one thing if buddhist Richard Gere was thrown out with his gerbils. Utah hates your freedom.
If I Could Be Like Diego
Lionel Messi scored a goal against Getafe earlier this season which was reminiscent of Maradona’s amazing goal against England in 1986 which is considered by many to be one of the greatest goals ever scored.
Looks like Messi took his hero worship to new heights over the weekend with a goal that resembled Maradona’s Hand of God.
England fans must be having Vietnam-style flashbacks.
