LHK Sporting News

1) Today, there are a bunch of yummy international friendly soccer matches taking place:

U.S. vs. Sweden
; hottie Freddie Ljungberg won't be playing, but there are other foxy Swedes on his team...
(11:30am PST on FSC)

England vs. Germany
; let's see if Sweet Cheeks actually plays...
(12pm PST on Setanta Premium & on same-day delay at 2pm on FSC)

Bosnia vs. Croatia; for some Eastern-European candy..
(3:30pm PST on Setanta)

2) The Pilot Pen will thankfully be televised starting today (on ESPN2 at 11am PST)! I was jonesing for some tennis coverage for the past couple of days. The U.S. Open Series has been spoiling me this summer with live tennis almost every day. I don't look forward to the day when the U.S. Open is over. Oh wait, I'll at least still have soccer until the next televised tennis tourney! Anyway, most of the matches were rained out yesterday, so Robby Ginepri played his second round match today, and unfortunately just lost to Agustin Calleri (4-6, 6-3, 5-7). Gineps just couldn't hold his serve to get to a third-set tie-break; argh!!

3) The referee who awarded Chelsea a penalty kick versus Liverpool on Sunday, Rob Styles, is being penalized. Scandalous!

4) In odd (but kind of funny) golf news, Bill Murray was pulled over in Sweden for allegedly driving a golf cart under the influence.
