Ashley Young joins United from Villa - United are getting younger and loading up!


.... 25 years old, can play either wing or as an attacking central midfielder behind the strikers and in front of a holding midfielder like Fletcher or Carrick.

Another good signing on paper for the Reds. A midfield of Nani, Young, Giggs/Fletcher/Carrick, and Valencia looks pretty good. United lacked pace up the middle so don't be surprised if Young is used in the center from the start.

Men behaving badly - but good technique on the flying kick!


.... I'm not a forensic expert, but I think the guy on the far right of the picture is getting ready for a healthy dose of some soccer cleats to the midsection. This is South American Cup Final aftermath. Watch the video as it is a good example of the mob mentality. Near the end of the video, everything seems to be calmed down until the Penarol player (in the picture) does his best Jackie Chan impression.

But even more interesting is watch the crowd literally start hopping and swarming like somebody kicked over a fire ant nest. Classic.

Sign of the economic times: New attorney's alleged second job? Prostitution


... maybe a job at Target or WalMart would have been a better second option? Let's hope she at least got a good grade in criminal procedure in law school.

The world's most sought after center back, Nemanja Vidic rules out United departure.


.... This is great news, as teams have been dying to get their hands on him for the last two years. He is the most feared center back in the world and is fearless in the air. Add a world class attacking midfielder and United will be poised for number 20 and another Champions League Final.

John Edwards Indicted: Corruption, lies and $1 million to his mistress. Will Obama pardon him?

..... While we are all fixated on Anthony Weiner having phone sex with women (yes another blatant lie to America only remedied by being caught), we have the final chapter of what might be the biggest fall from political grace in American political history going largely unnoticed.

John Edwards faces prison time over his use of campaign funds to cover up cheating on his cancer-stricken wife and fathering a love child.

He deserves everything he is going to get.

Some may say that Nixon was a bigger fall, but Nixon was somewhat redeemed by his public service post-Watergate and became a sympathetic people to many prior to his death(still a villain to many as well). But Nixon had Ford to pardon him; so will Obama pardon Edwards? Hardly...touching Edwards now would be political suicide right before the 2012 election.

The media loved him, the liberal press worshiped him and the Democrats saw him as an up and coming face of the new Democratic Party. I can't even say this is sad, except for his children who unfortunately will be known as his children. Even if they accomplish anything in life, they will always be the "child of disgraced former presidential candidate John Edwards."

If convicted, he loses his freedom, what is left of his personal life and, most importantly for me, his license to practice law.
