    Good to see Bayern looking toward the future: Luxembourg youth midfielder Ryan Johansson has signed a long-term contract with Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich and will join them from Metz in the summer. Johansson, 16, trained with the club on Monday and Tuesday and impressed the club's scouts. "I'm very pleased to join FC Bayern from this summer, and I am looking forward to the challenge," Luxembourg newspaper Wort quoted him as saying. Timon Pauls, Bayern's junior team chief scout, said: "We've signed a very talented player in Ryan. Funny, according to other reports, Bayern were not scouting him, but a team-mate of his when Ryan caught their eye and they signed him instead.

    Plus, the owners were the ones who decided to cash in on some of the team's vital players. What did they expect. I don't understand the timing, though. Seems to be the WORST side to have to play against (Liverpool) with a care-taker manager. Also, Spurs in very difficult position in Europa League. Down 2-1 aggregate, gave away home goal, and Delle out with RC due to his horror tackle (easily a leg breaker).
  3. I know the old refrain is "Wait until they playoffs" with the Caps, but I have to say that watching this season is actually MORE fun than last season (and I loved last season). Watching the Caps 4th line outplay the fillys first line, especially the shift where they kept the cycle going for the entire shift in the filly's end, was extremely enjoyable to watch. I can certainly love the next month+ of hockey with the Caps.
  4. Is that still Martin Sheen or has he been replaced?
  5. The Official Maryland Terrapins Thread

    Here's a good link to recent Terps sports (all sports) news: Also, nice to see the Men's Lax team now #1 in the country (play Yale, who always gives them a hard time, this Saturday, noon @Capital One Field). Meanwhile, the Lady Terps Lax team now #2 in country, host #1 UNC on Saturday at 3 PM. College Lacrosse "center of the universe" will be in College Park this upcoming weekend. Good Luck to both teams. If you can, get out and support these great teams. Fear. The. TURTLE!!!!!
  6. Not wanting this to be political, I put this article here. I thought it was funny (and very clever, for whom-ever started that site). Enjoy. Fake News Site Lets Liberals Live In Alternate Reality Where Hillary Is President Liberals seeking refuge from reality now have a fake news website where they can pretend to live in a world where Hillary Clinton is president. “Approval ratings for President Clinton hit 89 percent,” “Confused by fake news, Redditers think Trump is president” and “DOJ considers charging Trump with treason” are just a few headlines featured on, a satirical news site devoted to covering stories from an alternate universe where Hillary won last November’s election. “In the midst of a Constitutional crisis, this is our response,” the site’s description reads. “Long live the true president, Hillary Rodham Clinton.” The site’s proprietors do not identify themselves online, and did not return TheDC’s request for comment, but their articles suggest they have liberal leanings.

  7. The (political) HUMOR thread

    Pretty sure he meant @ some particular person, as the @ and btfoom were right next to each other. Plus, I didn't see "think and feel" in that post.
  8. The (political) HUMOR thread

    Except that you called me out, specifically. Maybe your daddy should have taught you that. Plus, I still don't know what "think and deel" means. Was that another thing your daddy taught you???

    First, watched most of the second half today on my phone with the free Fox2Go app. The streaming was in HD and the game feed was wonderful. @Gibbs Hog Heaven - I may not be a die-hard Pool supporter, but it was hard to watch as the "toxic POS that will not be named" was advertised all around the ground today. I don't know how a real supporter of Sutton must feel, as many are drawn in 2 directions to be sure. Really sucks. Question to anyone about tactics today: Why would Arsenal bring on Sanchez in the final 20 minutes, already ahead 2-0. It's not like he needs to score to get out of a rut. Putting him out there seems to be a dumb idea, especially if he gets hurt (maybe next game or 2 because of the little rest). Made zero sense to me. Also Sutton produced several great chances to score. Too bad because as a Bayern supporter, any additional match would have been welcomed.
  10. The (political) HUMOR thread

    I have no idea what "think and deel" means, but there is no need for personal attacks.

    I knew there was a reason I love that guy!!!
  12. Happy sunday people (weekly bible verses)

    It's late, but still Sunday (where I live at least). (Luke 15:4-7) The Parable of the Lost Sheep “What man among you, if he has a hundred sheep and has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open pasture and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? When he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!’ I tell you that in the same way, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.”
  13. I'm hoping that the break will help with their legs come playoff time. What I don't understand at all is having a 'break', to let teams heal, then have them play back to back, road day games. starting less than 24 hours apart. How is that 'healthy'?????
