An interesting fact is that in the 1930 world cup final, they used 2 balls for each half. The first half Argentina played with its ball and were leading 2-1 by the end of the half. The second half Uruguay used a slightly larger/firmer ball and ended up wining 4-2.
Just read on 4thringroad that the new pricing plan for the English Premier League set by Abu Dhabi sport will start rolling out in mid July. The prices are great compared to what Showtime used to offer (cant remember exactly but somewhere around 65-70KD I think) and made you subscribe to a bunch of channels that you didn’t need.
Also a cool new touch is the online streaming capability that make all 380 games available to watch online but needs a separate subscription. Still if you get both subscriptions it will be cheaper than what showtime used to offer.

It looks like good news for England but terrible news for Manchester United as Wayne Rooney will be fit for the World Cup but miss a handful of games for the champions including key clashes against Chelsea and Bayern Munich. Rooney sprained his ankle during the 2-1 defeat in Germany that left Sir Alex Ferguson fuming about the performance.
Manchester United will travel to Munich to face Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena as the UEFA Champions League Quarterfinal kicks-off.
Tomorrow will be the highlight of the quarterfinals as Arsenal host Barcelona in the Emirates. A match that should be a beauty.
Matches will kickoff at 2145 (9:45PM) Local time 1845 (6:45PM) GMT, an hour earlier than previous matches, so don’t miss it.
AbdulRahman Mohammed Bu ouf is an analist on ShowSport. He was wearing this pink suit today during Manchester United vs Liverpool match. Stylish!!
P.S. Man U won 2-1

It seems that AL-Jazeera just announced that if you would like to watch the 2010 World Cup, you will have to fork out $100 ($130 for new customer) to get the pleasure of enjoying the prestigious Football tournament.
But $100 (KD28) is not a lot at all, I remember when ART had the rights for the competitions and people had to pay an arm and a leg (~KD125) to watch 1 month of football.
Thank you Al-jazeera, and I hope I can do the subscription online.
Tiger Woods publicly apologized for his sex scandal Friday, but the star golfer left unclear when he would return to the sport.
In his first public appearance since the November car accident that touched off the scandal, Mr. Woods defiantly denied rumors that his wife might have hit him, and he implored the media to leave his family alone. He also acknowledged that he has been receiving in-patient therapy for his issues.
