More Important But...

Now, I know there are more important things in the world, but...

1) Chelsea takes on QPR tomorrow in the 3rd round of the English FA Cup (Sat. Jan 5th on FSC at 7am PST). Unfortunately, John Terry and several other key Chelski players are still injured.

2) Speaking of English soccer, Becks is officially training with Arsenal BUT only as an avenue to get fit (for English national team duty and also for the upcoming MLS season). It's so weird to see him in an Arsenal kit, and I'm not terribly fond of the platinum hair either.

3) In tennis news,

- The U.S. beat Serbia to win the Hopman Cup!

- Martina Hingis has been banned for two years after a independent tribunal confirmed her positive test for COCAINE! Sniff, sniff...

- Count-down to the Aussie Open (the first Grand Slam of the year)! It starts on Jan. 14th; can't wait!

4) Due to the WGA strike, I've been without some major appointment television lately. So, to get my Michael Urie (from Ugly Betty) fix, I may actually tune into MISS AMERICA REALITY CHECK tonight (on TLC at 10pm). Marc, I mean, Michael is hosting. Hmm; we'll see..

5) Finally, in honor of this crazy L.A. rain (and my pals Amanda & Bill), I'd like to leave you with a hilarious quote from the movie Cold Mountain:
Ruby (played by Renne Zellweger): "They call this war a cloud over the land. But they made the weather and then they stand in the rain and say 'Shit, it's raining!'"
