Billy Mills' 10000m gold medal run at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, and more, as beautifully captured and expressed by director Kon Ichikawa, in the official film:

Here's the goal of the century, graphically visible, in all its brilliance, but with Finnish commentary:



And here it is, plastered in captions, but with its original, unforgettable, Hugo Morales Argentinian commentary:

What a terrible advert for football that game was, especially considering the quality of both teams. Thank God for Messi's goal! cheers

(oops I just realized I wrote belong instead of among)

It amazes me that Real Madrid resigned itself to tie 0-0 in the Bernabeu...

Typical Mourinho. He always plays for 0-0 at home, then 0-1 away.

Sure, he is a fantastic manager that wins a hellova lot. But his teams are incredibly boring and play horrible negative football.

Which just happened about 10 mins ago. QPR are now Champions!!!!!!!!!!!!


But for how long? The hearing into the hoops signing a player illegally starts on Tuesday and could result in us having points deducted. Holy crap, it's hard to know whether to celebrate today or not. scratch

Without a shadow of a doubt in my mind, Cal Ripken Jr's record breaking 2,131 consecutive games. What an achievement! The O's put on quite the party in Camden Yards, with the president and vice president in attendance and everything. It was really sweet, his kids threw the first two pitches and to cap it off he hit a homer. What could be better? He is the greatest. At the top of the fifth inning, when the nuber officially fliped to 2131 he received a 22 minute standing ovation from the crowd, the opposing team and all the umpires. He's incredibly modest and had to be basically shoved out of the dugout to do his victory lap and shake hands and high five all the fans. I have a commemorative baseball from that game, signed by Cal himself. He's a local Maryland boy, which makes it even better really. I saw him once at a Minor League game, it was incredible! Yeeeeah, come on birds!

wool im looking at the spreads and Arizona is only 3.5 point favourites over the Raiders.  Guess that valiant loss versus tha Chargers must've impressed Vegas.  Anyone think Oakland has a shot this Sundee?
