Enraged AC Milan fan eBays goalie Dida
€71 top bid for blundering Brazilian
A disgruntled AC Milan fan attempted to eBay the team's Brazilian goalkeeper following the poor bloke's series of blunders which saw Manchester United celebrate a 3-2 win in the first leg of the Champions League semis, Reuters reports.
Thirty-three-year-old netminder Dida has been taking a bit of stick of late over a "series of errors", not least his performance last week during which he "left his near post exposed" allowing Wayne Rooney to slot in an injury-time winner.
Users of the world's favourite tat bazaar seem to agree with the prevailing opinion of Dida's form. The bidding had reached just €71 before eBay blew the final whistle on the auction earlier today. ®
Canadians don't play Hockey
This is ridiculous. Hockey never originated in Canada. Hockey is another of those fabulous sports which originated in England. I believe Canadians are rather good at a sport called "Ice Hockey". At times, the players can give a puck, to grateful spectators, as a souvenir.
Real hockey, sometimes mistakenly Americanized as "Field Hockey", only has one person completely insulated against the possibility of pain, thanks to astronaut-sized body armour. Unlike "American Football", a game started by a big punt.
I'm trying to figure out some way to bring baseball into this. But I just don't think it can be done.
Rick is right- Girl Rugby doesn't have 'Netminders', 'Goalkeepers', 'keepers', or 'Goalies'.
Football does though
