Mighty fine good sire, not sure what I'm doing in this thread though.

Very good performance Celtic...2-1 in the knockout stage would be a fantastic result.

Giants win game 1, Panda pounds Verlander. Not at all what I expected.

Liverpool 1 Swansea 3

It's what dreams are made of and one simply has to sing to Brendan Rogers ..."you should have stayed at Swansea" (even though the pay was only a bucket of Lava Bread and as many Welsh cakes as he could eat).

There are a lot of very dazed and confused Celtic fans wandering around here saying "...We won? Barcelona? We won? Celtic? Beat Barcelona? We won? Scottish football team won?"

Right enough, they did lose 2-0 to Kilmarnock a couple of weeks ago...

I think Barcelona should be forced to play Kilmarnock next.

Mets knuckleball pitcher R.A. Dickey wins the NL Cy Young award. He's the first knuckeball pitcher to win a Cy Young award, and the first Met to win one in nearly 30 years.
