|ABOUT THAT SOCCER COLUMN|
You knew I'd have some screw-ups in Wednesday's starting-from-scratch column about the English Premier League. Here were the biggies:|
• Tottenham Hotspur's nickname is "Spurs," not "the Spurs." Nobody ever calls them "the Spurs." Unless you want to be a wanker. Along those same lines, the term "EPL" is never used. Only "Premier League."
• Liverpool's main rivals are Everton and Manchester United.
• Newscastle is now sponsored by Northern Rock.
• Celeb update: Jay-Z is an Arsenal fan and James Lipton is a Spurs fan.
• Arsenal did win the Premier League in 1998 and 2002. Not sure how I screwed that up.
• The LeBron comparison for Theo Walcott didn't work -- Walcott hasn't played a single minute yet.
• Amazingly, I forgot to mention that Tottenham Hotspur's emblem is a cock and a ball.
• In my Godather/London analogy about the Premier League, Chelsea should have been Sonny, not Manchester United. Just a brainfart on my part.
• Multiple readers agree that Highbury (Arsenal's stadium) is more like Wrigley than Fenway.
• Wigan coach Paul Jewell wrote in himself to say, "I do not wear a trenchcoat on the sidelines, more often than not I wear a warm-up jacket. Sometimes a suit. Cheers!"
