The Guardian decided to be total smart-asses this morning, and who can blame them? It's an international break, an the international matches going on aren't even competitive fixtures. It's just friendlies. Therefore, most of us have absolutely nothing to write about. Cue Paul Doyle, who is in the business of curing our boredom. Paul decided to spread an awesome rumor this morning that Tottenham Hotspur are interested in Chelsea and England captain John Terry. He also mentions Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba as guys on their way out of Stamford Bridge, but we all know that those guys should go be designated players in MLS.

I know what most of you are thinking. "Why do we even address this stuff?" For a few reasons, actually. One, because some idiots searching "John Terry transfer rumors" might find this site and end up paying my rent next month. Two, because it's really funny. And three, because it's not as outrageously far-fetched as it sounds.

John Terry is nearing the end of his career. He's looked a little slow at times in the last couple seasons. But he's still John Terry, and he's still a pretty good footballer. He's probably better than Spurs' current central defenders. It makes sense that Chelsea would be willing to cash in on him, Spurs would be willing to pay some okay money for him, and Terry would want to leave a club he's being pushed out of to get a guaranteed starting place.

Okay, but really, this isn't happening.
