Sunday’s match was a fierce battle pitting the English Premier League leading Chelsea versus third-place Manchester United; still tied 0-0, Chelsea’s star striker Didier Drogba went hard after a loose ball bounding towards the penalty box. Man U defender Jonny Evans was coming strong from the opposite angle and jumped in to corral the ball. While in the air, he led with his foot and (mostly) inadvertently kicked Didier right in the chest. No dive needed on this play, watch the replay where Drogba’s chest gets stabbed with a pair of cleats. Yowch!

British dentistry is usually an easy target for comedians so one fan at the Chelsea and Manchester United match this weekend tried to change the public perception. Taking in a hard-fought soccer from the stands shouldn’t mean you have to suffer through an unclean mouth. Fortunately, he brought his own toothbrush with him. Unless they sell them at the concessions stands, in which case, I have a series of jokes about British dentistry I’d like to make.
According to several Russian newspapers, Roman Abramovich, the Russian billionaire ranked as the 51st richest person in the world according to Forbes, and owner of the Chelsea soccer club lost one of his yachts playing poker. Seeing that Abramovich already has several mega-yachts, and is currently building the world’s largest private yacht, I doubt that losing one of the many boats in his armada is a major loss. Of course, his PR flaks are denying the report but if you can’t count on the honesty of a Russian newspaper the world is already lost.
