Rule Number 1

  2. ☛ A very cool visualization of the Premier League Table so far.
  3. Different commentators from around the world react to Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s goal from Wednesday night. It was truly one of the most remarkable things I’ve ever seen on a football pitch. My eyes watered up listening to the last commentator call the play. It truly is why it’s called the Beautiful game.

    He is Zlatan. Simply.

  4. ZLATAN!

  5. How to remove felt lettering from EPL shirts.

    Disclaimer: This will probably only work for the felt lettering on officially license EPL shirts. If the lettering is screen printed (ie practically flush with the fabric) it probably won’t work and it serves you right for being a cheapskate.

    It’s pretty simple, but you’ll need a few things.

    1. Hot Iron, I had mine set on wool.
    2. Soaking wet towel. Must be very wet, moisture is key.
    3. Butter knife or something to get the peeling started.

    Ok, now the process:

    1. Place the soaking wet towel over the lettering in the name.
    2. Use the iron to heat up the towel and generate a lot of steam. Steam is key to relaxing and releasing the glue that holds the letters on. Be sure to keep the iron moving so that you don’t burn or melt anything. A static iron is not good. But I’m not here to teach you how to iron a shirt, your mother or father should have done that a long time ago if they loved you.
    3. Remove the iron and towel and use the knife to get the edge of the letter peeled up a bit. It may actually be a bit easier to do with your fingers, but be careful it might be very hot!
    4. Start peeling slowly. You’ll notice the letter might stretch and break every so often, but that’s ok.
    5. If it starts to get hard to peel the letter off then simply reapply the towel and use the iron to heat it up again. The more steam the better.

    Eventually you’ll have all the letters off but there will still be some glue residue. What I did to minimize the amount of residue left on the shirt was to fold a few sheets of paper towel and use the iron over that where the letters used to be. My logic is that the heat will melt the glue a bit and the paper towel should soak the glue up.

    There will probably always be a slight shadow left from the name. It is possible to burn the glue as well if you’re not careful with how hot you let it get. Don’t do this.

    Finally it should end up looking like this:

    You can probably make out a bit of the lettering still, but it’s better than still having the name of a jerkface poop butt on the back of your beloved team’s shirt.

    Further Disclaimer: If you’re doing this to a Tottenham shirt you should probably just burn the whole thing and start supporting a proper club.

    Addendum: Some googling has helped me discover that soaking the area with diluted white vinegar then laundering (no dryer) can be used to dissolve the glue residue. I haven’t tried it myself yet, but sounds promising.

  9. Arsenal 5 - 2 Tottenham Hotspur

    I spent a long time writing this last night. I’d love it if you took the time to read it.

    The North London Derby is a time honored tradition in English Football. It dates back to 1887, one hundred years before your author’s birth, when Royal Arsenal traveled from South London (where they were located at the time) to Tottenham in North London. The proper rivalry began in 1913 when Royal Arsenal relocated to Highbury and painted North London red.

    The match that took place on 27 February 2012 was one for the history books. It was a game of thirds. The prologue labelled Arsenal as being faulty. Tottenham were described by the media as the new big club in North London. This was supposed to be the worst team fielded in 15 years for Arsenal, while our opponents were hailed as the greatest Spurs side in 50 years. The first act did a wonderful job to set up the conflict for our heroes. As the first act came to a close the crescendo of the second act ushered in the final third which saw our Gunners reign victorious and silence their critics.

    This is such an awesome video. I’d be lying if I didn’t say the soundtrack helped make me cry at my desk.

    Just watch it, and you’ll see why I love Arsenal.

  11. Sunderland 1 - 2 Arsenal

    I wrote another match review. It’s another long read. I am a major Arsenal Nerd. As always, feedback is welcome. I want to get better at this.

    If I had to describe this match in as few words as possible they would be: (in chronological order) Frustration, Patience, Dread, Vindication and Legend.

    Have you ever been to America? Where specifically?

    I’ve also been to Raleigh North Carolina for my friend’s wedding last summer, Boston on several trips, seen far too much of Calais Maine for my liking, and a whole lot of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. That’s pretty much it though.

Sad Romo or sad Romo doing a quick party pump?

As a fan of this team and a fan of this man, I was gutted yesterday, but luckily I was so hungover that my frustration was allayed.  Honestly, I thought they were going to lose anyhow.  I did.  I looked at the Detroit Offense and our secondary and assumed it would happen.
If you told me after week 1 that we’d go into our bye-week 2-2 and Romo had his ribs broken and lung punctured in week two and Miles Austin would be out for weeks 3 and 4 and Dez for week 2, I’d say “okay, that’s fair.” 
All I’m saying is, I still love those Cowboys and I think that an early bye-week for us will be a good thing, and hopefully when week 6 shows up, Mr. Romo can exploit the New England secondary and Demarcus Ware shatters Tom Brady’s patella.

What Jimbo said.
I assume I can call you Jimbo because we’re bros.

Also, Alex, check out how quickly you come up.

Seems reasonable.
