Speaking of players back to full training....

One I Forgot

Meant to get this up Sunday, got occupied, totally flaked. Edgar Castillo opened his Atlas account with a consolation goal in their 2-1 loss to Monterrey. The play starts at around 1:20.

Green, Black and Blue

I did not just come to spread mirth (as mirth as it is). Though he has missed two Hamburg games with a rib ouch, I am told Julian Green returned to full training yesterday.  am hoping to have an interview with him over at MLSS soon.

This is what is known as too perfect.

In the time-honored tradition of annoying visitors ahead of a big match, there was a fire alarm pulled in Bayern Munich's Moscow team hotel on Sunday night (they play CSKA in the Champions League today). One photographer snapped the above pic of Arjen Robben standing outside in a blanket, and naturally a Photoshop genius somewhere went quickly to work. I literally laughed out loud for a minute after I saw this resulting work of art.

Me likes.

No, I'm not on about yet another one of my stat nerd cavortings (cavortions? cavortations? cavortum?).

I'm talking about this. G'on 'head, Sunil!

Woot-Woot and a Woot

For the third straight Sandhausen game, Andrew Wooten has hit the lone goal winner in the dying moments. This time, it came right near the death against 1860 Munich. I have yet to see video for the first two, but I have hope with it being against the Lions.
