From the ManYoo Locker Room

It is unclear at this time but rumors are circulating in the greater-Blackpool metropolitan area that rather than using his time-tested methods for inspiring his team at halftime (see dryer, hair and yelling...lots) Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson used yesterday's blog post on this very site to inspire his charges.  With his side looking listless and his Bulgarian hitman particularly ineffective the team went into the dressing room down 2-0 to their 12th place hosts. A Scottish-Ranting-to-English interpreter overheard what happened next:

"Look what you made that f*cking blogger write!  He said you couldn't possibly f*cking score today!  And he's f*cking American!! What do they know about our game? I'd have jammed this print out up your @ss if it hadn't been posted just before kickoff when you were already in the tunnel. Now you'd better get back out there and prove him wrong or your proctologist will find my hair dryer in a very unpleasant place come your next physical!!  Now get out there and score a god d@mn brace." 
Of course, to the naked ear that came out something like "kj;lnma; a alfdjam as  asa;ldaf a asnasd aALS A ADF  adlas alteq;ns  fl;i!!!"  It's a good thing we have well trained correspondents all over the footballing world to translate these things for us.

We are touched by SAF's mention of our blog entry and his use of it as part of his halftime talk.  That said, since his talk was effective, we wouldn't mind an endorsement from the Man himself of our blog since by being so effective with that talk, he killed a perfectly good gimmick that we'd be using for all of 24 hours after putting AT LEAST 15 minutes of thinking into it. 

Back to the drawing board with our theories and congrats to those who picked the right ManYoo striker in this double week.  We'll remember to stop tempting the fantasy football gods with our writing in the future. (OK, we will in no way remember to stop tempting the fantasy football gods with our writing in the future but it seemed like the right thing to say there).

    So earlier last week I as deciding between RVP and Berbs. Given the schedule (and assumption that Berbs' best games were behind him), I went with RVP. Figures......

  4. Not like RVP was a BAD pick... you still did alright

  5. Imagine if you'd picked Rooney instead (says the blogger looking directly at himself)

  6. Ironic humor always leaves me rather disinterested & bored (#seewhatIdidthere).

    Seriously, though, I need to publish a blog on Friday nights called "Four of my starting 11 will be complete crap-- Good luck figuring it out!"

    So what the heck is the story with Kyle Walker? After all the build-up, the kid misses both games.

  9. Thx guys! Your last few posts and articles have been great reads! Keep up the great work!

  10. @ Neal: Yeah, I took Rooney over Berbs...I'm such a dumb@ss!
