Former Athletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres seems to be wasting no time in endearing himself to the Liverpool crowds, on the basis of today’s match against Derby County. He ran the Derby defence ragged as Liverpool thrashed their opponents 6-0. Spaniards Torres and Xabi Alonso grabbed two goals each, Ryan Babel netted his first for the club and substitute Andriy Voronin also got onto the scoresheet. Liverpool now top the table, their best start to a season since 1998.
Manchester United beat Sunderland by a solitary goal by Louis Saha, giving the victory to Sir Alex against his former captain & protege Roy Keane, who is the coach at Sunderland.
In other matches, Michael Owen scores the goal in a 1-0 Newcastle win over Wigan, while Fulham draws with Tottenham in an exciting match, that had Spurs leading 3-1 at one point. West Ham United beat Reading 3-0, while Everton beat Bolton 2-1 & Middlesborough beat Birmingham 2-0.
Just what is it with tomorrow, the 2nd of September? I feel so torn, obligated to attend all 4 functions that are to be held tomorrow and knowing that I can’t. At best I can probably make it to 2, the 2 that are in the city, so I could theoretically show my mug at one wedding and race to the second just in time for lunch being served & pleasantries. The engagement is in Perumbavoor and that is the one I most want to go.
This is the engagement of two people I know very well from my earlier company – the guy is like a younger brother to me and the girl is like a kid sis to me! Obviously, they don’t feel brother-sister like to each other! Or else this would be one weird wedding! The 3rd wedding is in Kottayam and the person I know the least.
So what will I do? Which function or functions will I go to tomorrow? In the end, I guess I will probably not go to any of them and just stay home!
Song for the day – “I’m Sensitive” – JEWEL
The Vancouver Canucks unveiled their brand new Rbk jerseys. I was a little disappointed at the colour choices as I was a big fan of their normal jerseys and it’s gonna take me a while to get used to these ones. But like most hockey fans, I think the city name spelt out in an arch is an eyesore. The logo should be more than enough of an identity.
Here’s Mathias Ohlund, Willie Mitchell, Markus Naslund, Kevin Beiksa & Trevor Linden modeling the new outfits.
