Happy Friday friends. Now because it's Friday and it is the most boring time of the year, I have a fun Idea for you. Take a sugar jar and fill it with salt, then stick it next to the coffee pot in the office when nobody is looking. Trust me, your coworkers will thank you for "keeping them on their toes". Besides there isn't anything else going on in the world except your retirement funds being flushed down the toilet.

And now the "news"

It's really good to see some of the new call ups getting looked at. I have high hopes for Klinsmann being able to develop young talent.

VIDEO:Sir Alex Ferguson tells a reporter what he thinks of him-SB Nation Soccer

One thing I hate about the English game is that it seems that if you say anything about the League, the FA, or a referee that isn't a verbal "insert sexual act here" you get fined. What I have always loved about Sir Alex is that he doesn't seem to care and will tell you on camera exactly what he thinks of you when you have obviously done something wrong. Mancrush!
