Liverpool beat Chelsea 5-4 in a penalty shoot out, with stand-in goalkeeper, Adrian, saving Chelsea’s final penalty shot from Tammy Abrahams.
It was Abrahams who gained Chelsea a penalty – and scored – to level the score at 2-2 during extra time after he was alleged to have been fouled in the penalty area.
Liverpool took both major European club trophies this year – Champion’s League & the Super Cup.
The Reds do it again!

I doubt this would be featured on Idols!

Question: Can a biblical historian be thoroughly objective as a Christian and retain their integrity?
It’s about to kick off …. USA vs Netherlands.
As Prof will be cheering the USA I shall put my allegiance behind the Dutch.
If you have access to satellite or stream switch on and watch.
The stadium is packed and the atmosphere is electric.
May the best team win …
Well done USA. 2-0 and without a shred of a doubt, worthy winners and reigning World Champs.

I must be honest, I am not a fan of national anthems. But that’s another story.
It seems the captain of the women’s US football team, Megan Rapinoe, has found herself at the centre of some petty mindedness regarding her not singing the national anthem.
There are several issues why she refuses to sing and she has not been shy stating what these are, and by and large they all stem from discrimination – she is gay.
What makes me laugh is when people like Colorstorm run a post slating her behaviour, and naturally all his fundamentalist visitors pile on.
This particular comment rather says it all I think.
you know that I don’t support her lifestyle choice Ark but yet I do not allow that to interfere with my support of her as an athlete…and it is the athlete I support…not the woman who chooses to live a lifestyle that is contrary to a heterosexual relationship.
If she wants to be gay, fine…but don’t use the soccer game to make a political statement.
If she wants to be gay ….
This level of ignorance and prejudice simply does my head in.
Until the World Cup I’ll bet almost anything the vast majority of yanks had no clue who Rapinoe was and even now, if it were not for this utter bullshit most would not care about their national soccer team one iota.
If you want to see how Colorstorm’s hypocritical, ignorant groupies behave. Here’s the link.

The Benji Cake
To extract cake from mixing bowl you will need:
1. A brief tickle behind the ears. If Benji cake is reluctant to budge …..
2. Use a fork and tap briskly against side of tin of cat food.
Once extracted from bowl, for best results, place on warm lap and stroke until cat’s internal motor is engaged.
