  4. Stan Ski,
    Thanks for dropping by my blog to read the static cat haiku. He's a sweet cat, but the static was a surprise. By the way, I can't really tell from what you have above, but did ManchesterU win?

  12. It was a kickabout for Leeds, they knocked Uni-ted out of the FA Cup.

    If you didn't know, City are playing that Stretford mob in the semi-final of the League Cup, the first leg should have been at Eastlands tonight, but was called off because of the snow. Global what??
