Could Celtic and Rangers soon be playing Premier League soccer after Welsh club Swansea won promotion to the premier Division by beating Reading in a play-off?
Swansea are the first non-English side ever to play in the premiership since it was formed in 1992.
Is this the last Indy 500 for Danica Patrick?
She is set to drive from the 26th starting place on the grid but a less than top three finish may effectively scuttle her career in the Indy Cars.
I believe that Barcelona, with Messi et al represent the beautiful game so much better than a United team that is adequate but a long way form greatness.
Like in the world cup final with Spain I want to see the team that plays the beautiful game best win.
Big Mac was leading the field in the final round of the Sawgrass Players Championship, often called the fifth major and golf's richest prize.
He proceeded to dump four shots into the water for a 79 and dropped all the way down to 33rd place.
Ryan Giggs may be the talk of the town in Britain after a judge blocked all coverage of his connection to a sex affair with a model but it is impossible to see a similar event happening here.
No judge in his right mind in America would seek to prevent coverage of a sports star and an alleged affair.
Blackburn were on course for an upset victory when the penalty was awarded by referee Phil Dowd only after consultation with his linesman.
Rooney scored the sport kick and could be seen mouthing f... off to the Blackburn crowd as his teammates congratulated him.
The Spanish press has revealed that Ryan Giggs is the famous footballer who has taken out the super injunction forcing the British media to keep his name out of a sex scandal involving model Imogen Thomas.
But the Spanish newspapers are bound to start flooding United players with questions about the case when Barcelona meet United on May 28th, in the game of the decade, at Wembley Stadium in the European Champions League final.
United have managed to avoid any press pressure up to this point and it has served them well, their clinical dispatch of Chelsea, where Giggs played a leading role, just the latest example.
It started we don't know when but the run for the roses , the KentuckyDerby has nothing on the toilet run.
It features dozens of inebriated young men trying to race across the outdoor urinals at the second leg of horse racing's Triple Crown, the Preakness held in Baltimore.
Watch the video and have a good laugh

Ryan Giggs the Manchester United legend has now been named on numerous websites as the player allegedly behind the Super Injunction in a British court forbidding use of his name after allegations of an affair with a top model.
Bleacher Reports in the US became the latest site to mention the Welsh wizard who has played an incredible role with Manchester United for twenty years now .
The vicory was a vital one for the former Irish manager as his side now has their fate in their own hands with two games left to play.
Wolves struck quickly with a goal in the 15th minute by Fletcher and were soon 2-0 up.
It was his thirteenth time to ride in the race but his first success.
Known universally as Johnny V, he rode a magnificent race to bring Animal Kingdom home two and half lengths clear.
There are 19 runners in the 2011 Kentucky Derby.
In the average race in America there are seven or eight so the chances of hitting much bigger odds is far greater.
Ridden by Garret Gomez, widely considered the best in the game Master of Hounds is hoping to capitalize on a very weak field as the 137th run for the roses gets under way.
He has only run once this season but Aidan O'Brien is perhaps the greatest trainer in Europe and will have the horse fit and ready.
Just how confusing is this Kentucky Derby field?
Calvn Borel's mount Twice the Appeal, 30/1 under any other jockey, is just 7/1 and second favorite in the early betting.
It is time to end the 20 horse Kentucky derby.
You just have to look at the two horses drawn on the inside the past two years to see why.
Lets got through the throw outs first.
Uncle Mo is still not definite for the race according to trainer Todd Pletcher-- not good enough in Derby Week to have such hesitation.
The Nick Zito colt wound up in Gate 8, perfect for a closer while Uncle Mo his main rival is parked out in Gate 18.
ArchArchArch, who had been impressing everybody this week ended up in the dreaded No 1. Gate.
Irish raider Master of Hounds is in Gate 11.
Every other race in America has a maximum of 12 starters, which makes them look like a picnic compared to the cavalry charge that the Derby has become. The race to the first bend is like roller derby with horses knocked this way and that.
However, some interesting trends appear to happen most years.
There are two Irish interests in this year's Kentucky Derby. Master of Hounds is trained by resident Irish genius Aidan O'Brien, pictured, in Ireland and is being shipped across the Atlantic for the race.
The other Irish interest is Santiva, trained by Waterford-born Eddie Kenneally who now works out of Kentucky. Santiva was favorite for the recent Blue Grass stakes, a key Kentucky Derby prep but ran disappointingly.
Master of Hounds is intriguing, even more so because top American jock Garret Gomez will be on board. O'Brien has shipped into the Kentucky Derby before but with little success, but may have a stronger hand this year.
All the ingredients seemed in place for a classic battle with a huge crowd, wonderful conditions and a New York team that many believed was the best to be fielded in years .
The final score was 3-21 to 1-11 in a game that will bitterly disappoint the New York GAA fans who believed their side had a real shot after running Galway close last year.
