This incident wasn’t the first time Deepdale ran into trouble with opposing goalkeepers. Here’s video of him pissing off a Sunderland keeper to the point of catching a water bottle in the bill.
Apparently he also got in a BBC reporter’s face without his head during a broadcast during the Derby match.
Deepdale isn’t surly all the time. Here he is bonding with the public while wearing a sandwich board. Mmmmm samiches.
I don’t know what that duck’s on but I want some now. When was the last time you saw someone with a sandwich board who was that friendly? Most of them look like they’d stab you in the gut sooner than look at you.
Neighbors probably became nervous when Peter Postlethwaite showed up at their door to offer a proposition or just borrow some sugar. Kobayashi (not the competitive eater) succumbed to cancer yesterday at the age of 64. He was known to most as Kayser Soze’s right hand man but his career was much more than his supporting role in The Usual Suspects.
We’ll get back to the sports in a minute but we figured we’d learn you a bit about Postlethewaite. He played the father of Daniel Day-Lewis in In The Name of the Father. Language NSFW.
Postlethwaite was also wrecked by an alien in Alien 3. Unfortunately I couldn’t find YouTube of the kill. He was also in Jurassic Park 2: Electric Boogaloo, Amistad, The Constant Gardener and Inception.
Besides Postlethwaite’s movie work, he was also in numerous TV series. He made his start on stage and eventually returned to it in King Lear.
When these actors come through town on stage, go see them. It’s worth it. I’m talking actors like Postlethwaite and Patrick Stewart. Feel free to skip the Brendan Frasers. Then again if I have to tell you that, you’re already a lost cause.
The Guardian has a strong retrospective of clips covering Postlethwaite’s career. Check them out here.
UPDATE: A friend from Warrington just informed me that Postlethwaite is from Warrington and not Liverpool. He’s not the only one. Tim Curry is also a Warringtonian as is Ian Brown, formerly of the Stone Roses.
She also informed me that Warrington is home to Britain’s first IKEA. They also have welly wanging competitions. I assumed that’s slang for wanking but apparently it’s “throwing a welly”. It’s “like tossing the caber”. Well that clears it up. That’s knowledge for life, people.
To say Liverpool defender Paul Konchesky is having an awful season would be an understatement. Liverpool are a flaming bag of crap but he stands out even more than the team as a whole. How bad is it? His mom is showing more fire and passion than he has all season. Two problems. She’s doing it on Facebook and she’s talking shit about Liverpool and its supporters.
Konchesky took offense to comments made about her son by fans after he had another shit game against Stoke. She decided to respond via a Facebook status update. Let’s just say she didn’t hold back.
It takes next to nothing to set Scousers off on indignant rants and robbing sprees. This situation was no different. Konchesky was forced to take her page down after angry fans started bombarding it with what I’m sure were calm, logical responses.
One person had a reasonable response to Konchesky’s comments.
Les Lawson, secretary of the Official Liverpool FC Supporters’ Club, said: ‘Comments like that are deeply unhelpful and extremely disappointing.
‘We Liverpudlians have been called worse in our time but the only person who is going to end up harmed by those comments in the long run is Paul Konchesky.’
Lawson is right. Konchesky is probably thankful this past weekend’s matches were snowed out. If he thinks he’s getting it bad now, just wait until the next match. His mother can forget going to any home matches. If there’s one thing Liverpool fans do besides steal, it’s never forget to remind you of any perceived injustice. Best of luck to the Koncheskys. They’re going to need it.
