Frank, you're making it sound like 'dropping points' is an inevitability. I disagree. Our trend is upwards.

Re: Vilnius, Lithuania

The centre for the Toronto Raptors is from Lithuania. Seems like a very decent bloke, despite being arrested for DUI a couple of years ago. Latvia is the best Baltic country for hockey, although they do play in Lithuania.

Re: The Cleveland Indians

I used to work with a guy who played some serious ball as a catcher (not a wicket keeper). All of his fingers were crooked from being broken so often. They used to call catcher's gear 'The Tools of Ignorance', because you had to be stoopid to play the position, but 90% of baseball field managers are...

Also, in Brantford, Ontario, annually the local tribes are given a hunk of cheese and half a loaf of bread to every member. Something to do with paying homage to 'The Great White Mother'. Talk about out-of-date anachronisms.

Re: The Cleveland Indians

But 'Indians' aren't slaves. In this country, they have more rights than I have. For instance, they can commercially fish at any time of the year without a licence. Trying to correct past wrongs is one of the growth industries in Canada. (It used to be 'Immigration consultant'.)

Well, the Indians upset the Cub bandwagon last night, and, personally, I think they should be favourites in this series. But, when they came to Toronto to beat the Blue Jays, a "native activist" tried not just to stop them from wearing their Chief Wahoo patch, but to ban them from being ca...

Not appearing in the top flight. This club was within a single goal of not existing at all. The next step would have been the Teasdales winding up the club and selling Turf Moor to the highest bidder. And you're dissatisfied now? Give me a break.

If Defour had scored with his header, it would have been a different game. Sitting back against Liverpool worked because we scored with our first two chances on the counter-attack, and Liverpool don't have any big target men. Horses for courses

You also just play Andre by himself as a front runner. He's a great finisher, but generally poor when he's on the ball.
