I wonder whether Andy Carroll will be arrested in Baltimore (or rather what for).  That guy is the biggest heat score in Britain.

Yep, section 124 at M&T.

I know a lot of people see these tours and friendlies as nothing but cash cows for the clubs, but seeing as I probably won't be going overseas anytime soon this is probably the best chance at seeing Liverpool play live.

Nice.  I suspect that comparable tickets at White Hart Lane would cost quite a bit more than that.

Old Chelsea's comments the other day would make me afraid to ask what White Hart Lane would set the fan back.

Spurs current pricing (1 pound = a bit under US$1.60): http://www.tottenhamhotspur.com/spurs/Tickets/ticket-prices.page?

I actually got out to three matches at the Lane on one of my annual trips (when Chelsea were mostly in away matches) - not bad. To get there from Central London go to Liverpool street station and catch any of numerous National Rail trains to the White Hart Lane station and it's a short walk from there.

Arsenal/Spurs is always a good dust up.

Balotelli (sp) is a dikweed.    What was up with him and the shoving match with his team mate on the free kick in another game?    Anybody see it?

Arsenal deserved it. Kompany and Clichy were solid, but everyone else seemed off.

Balotelli's red card in the final minutes was pretty extraordinary.

I missed the game. Was it a life-time achievement award for being a career-long jerk?

No, I think that ceremony is later after he gets shipped off to Palermo in exchange for 3 goats and a case of table wine.

Every once in a while it all works out.    This week, I have to work nights.   I'll get home today just in time to watch today's games on FOX Soccer.    Life is good.

It's a sloppy wet mess.  Hope Fulham ties this thing up.

That guy is on fire.  Too bad the USMNT isn't doing much this year, he's been on a tear.
