    Well, that derby was exciting although not very well played…

    Does set up an exciting end to the season though, with the Manchester teams tied in points at the top but City with the goal differential advantage

  4. ElJefe Says:

    Best part of the game, besides the City win of course. Mancini giving Ole Red Nose the keep yapping hand sign. Ha ha ha ha.

    Which is better, My Problem Right There or Alaska?

    Once more I srsly dug the 10.22.10 RnRoll>Carini>My Problem Right There sequence

    That night I felt My Problem was a keeper (in limited rotation). Still holds up too. Also realized today that both songs follow a similar rhythm pattern

    But I wonder if I’d feel the same if I’d heard My Problem as much as Alaska…? Very likely

    Getting that crazed glazed feeling about summer PH

  6. garretc Says:

    I was definitely hoping for Mancini and Sir Alex to come to blows there Jef!

    Just imagine the headlines that woulda generated…

  7. garretc Says:

    Oh, and I don’t know if you noticed, but the replay they showed actually had Fergie making the yapping gesture first and Mancini just giving it back, which takes Mancini’s gesture down a bit in my book.

    Still, the exchange as a whole: hilarious

  8. Robear Says:

    This is too long and turrible to read. But worth a skim

    Between that and Fukushima, it’s a self fulfilling prophecy.
