Stuffed Like Dumb Bird News

-(Stolen from Jamesey) In Turkey, Galatasary fans arrive at games in Fenerbache by boat! Holy Shit! They look completely insane! I love them all. Can I get a boat to take to games??!!??
-Ken drops by with an update from Wednesdays make up games from the NCAA tourney: Akron crushed West Virginia 5-0 today. From what I've read the first goal was a bicycle kick. Total domination by the Zips in terms of shots and possession (and obviously the scoreline).
UCONN beat Stoney Brook 2-0. Both goals came in the 2nd half.
The Zips travel to UCONN this weekend for the next round thanks to UCONN (15-3-1) being seeded #8 and the Zips (17-1-2) being seeded #9. Basically the Zips got screwed. But they've beaten some big names on the road this year so I'm confident they will prevail!!
Go Zips!!!

-More from the NCAA - 3rd Round games on the schedule (winners advance, losers go home):
Maryland v St Johns
U Conn v Akron
SMU v North Carolina-Greensboro
Virginia v North Carolina

Fenerbahce 0-4 Milan
Rosenborg 1-1 Olympiacos
Real Madrid 1-1 Lyon
Liverpool 0-0 Betis
Anderlecht 0-2 Chelsea
Inter 4-0 Artmedia
Porto 1-1 Rangers
If you had Andriy Shevchenko, Levan Koiashvili, & Adriano all on your Fantasty team you would have scored about Elenty Million Points last night. This three were out of their minds scoring goals. Kobaishvili of Schalke has 2 PK's and a 3rd strike against PSV who were blown out of a game (any game) for the first time in 2 years. Or Adriano getting his act together to bag 3 for Inter v Artmedia. But the real king of the nightime world was Scheva of Milan with 4! Four! Vier! Quatre! v Fenerbache. What class!!!!!
And here's a list of the 10 teams that, so far, have made it through to the knock out stage. There is only one Matchday left for 6 others to make the list of 16 or go home crying - or head over to the highly inferior UEFA Cup competition were you might get to tangle with the Mighty Fighting Cheez Gnyps of Crvena Zvezda or the Everlasting Blisters of Litex.

-Real Madrid
11 -?
