Jose Mourinho reiterates FIFA 'coach of the year' award 'fix' claim
http://sports.ndtv.com/football/news/205316-jose-mourinho-reiterates-fifa-manager-award-fix-claim

"One, two or three people called me to say they had voted for me and in the end another name appeared in their votes. Therefore I decided not to go."

Thoughts?
Oh Mou being Mou?

FIFA is corrupt.
On the corruption. It's real?
FIFA has been corrupt since I can remember.

Nope.  They'll have to get past the Canadiens, first... And it ain't gonna happen.

ROFL the Habs.

Blackhawks and Pengs in the Finals. Game 7 OT win for Pens would be the best.

1 - 0 = spank??? The Pens will be the over-hyped team that fails to live up to expectations in the playoffs.

If we fail, it's because of Disco Dan.

Let's just hope we go in disciplined this time.

A-Rod will make more than Astros

Alex Rodriguez will make more this year than all the Houston Astros combined -- a lot more.

And he won't even play the first half of the season -- if at all...

Over-hyped?  Tim Tebow was over-hyped. 

The Pens are dominating.

That's not to say they won't live up to the expectations, but I wouldn't say "over-hyped."  If anything, they'll "choke," which is a different phenomenon than being over-hyped.

Yes, I'm quibbling over semantics. :P

Quibble duly noted. Okay, I admit they are pretty deserving of the hype. The Penguins are scary good! I guess I'm just hoping that they'll "choke" in the playoffs... at least as long as the Habs are still in it.  :)

Improprieties at the Barn? I’m shocked! Those Aubbies couldn’t possibly be cheating now could they? I mean, nobody would have ever seen this coming. But I guess that National Championship they bought with Cam Newton is probably worth it to them. All I can say is that the Cow College has always produced an abundance of bovine excrement.
