Wayne Rooney might be leaving Man Utd

A lot of the sports journalists on Twitter are claiming that Wayne Rooney will soon be leaving Manchester United. Apparently, Rooney has told the club that he won’t be signing a new contract. 😯

How dare he??? 😡 Players don’t leave Man U, Man U leaves players!!! 👿 👿 👿

Alright alright, everybody calm down! I’m only joking.

Blog editor: “Everybody calm down”? Isn’t that what Cenk Uygur is always saying?

(Cenk Uygur is pronounced “Jenk Yu-gar”)

Moja: You mean Cenk Uygur, the host of The Young Turks, the best political & entertainment show on the web and the leader of the TYT Army? Yes, I’m borrowing one of his lines. And I intend to borrow more of them in the future.

Blog editor: Just stick to one point. You were talking about Rooney…

Moja: Oh yeah, Rooney.

I think players have the right to move on to another club if they want to. People are always leaving their jobs to get better ones elsewhere, and no-one should be surprised to learn that football players want to do the same. <— Blog editor: Long sentence!

I hope Rooney stays at Manchester United, but if he does decide to leave, I wish him all the best.


Nigerian wins first Commonwealth gold

From the BBC News website:

“Teenage Nigerian weightlifter Augustina Nkem Nwaokolo has won the first gold medal of the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi in the women’s 48kg division. The 17-year-old set a new Games record of 175kg after lifting 77kg in the snatch and 98kg in the clean and jerk to upset home favourite Soniya Chanu.”

Check out the rest of the story here.

Well done Augustina! It’s nice to see a positive story involving Nigeria, and I’m sure all Nigerians are very proud of your achievement. I hope you go on to have a long and successful career in weightlifting.

Mini rant!!!

I feel a mini rant coming on! evil mad evil mad evil

Part one

Lots of annoying little things have been happening at the moment. Some of the things have no major bearing on my life. These include:

  • Alonso winning the Singapore Grand Prix and Lewis Hamilton crashing out (again!).
  • Manchester United dropping two points against Bolton at the weekend, thus failing to capitalise on Chelsea losing to Manchester City.
  • Ronnie O’Sullivan losing the World Open final to Neil Robertson.

Some of them might have a bearing on my life:

  • Ed Miliband becoming the new leader of the Labour Party.
  • Ed Miliband entering the race in the first place!
  • The Labour Party losing David Miliband from front-line politics.

Part two

The other things are really irritating!

I have to find a new flat by 6th October. I started looking for places on Gumtree, but one of my friends recommended MoveFlat. He said that Gumtree was used by “time-wasters” and people from two countries in particular (let’s just call them ” Country A” and “Country S”).

I checked MoveFlat in the morning, and realised it was much better than Gumtree. The adverts seem a lot clearer and they were all displayed neatly on one page. I went away to clean my flat (as you do), and tried to use MoveFlat in the afternoon. No joy! It had crashed!!!!

Blog editor: It’s September. It’s probably all those new students out there.

Moja: %£@#$! students!!! 😡

I kept trying it, but it failed to load, so I used Gumtree. I know Gumtree works well, and I’ve used it in the past. I was just frustrated that I couldn’t use MoveFlat. I called an estate agent about an ad I saw for a place in the docklands, but the property had already gone. They told me about another place, so I went over to see it. There were two places actually. One was too expensive (even though they knew my budget) and the other place was way too dirty. It was frustrating.

Part three

There are other annoying things happening at the moment, but I’ll leave them for another day. I planned to watch The Hangover to cheer me up, but I ended up watching a couple of programmes on BBC One instead.

The first one, Ask Rhod Gilbert, was a comedy show in which Rhod Gilbert and other comedians give funny answers to questions that are given to them. For example:

  • ‘Tony Blair’ asks what people think about his new book ‘A Journey’
  • ‘The Pope’ asks what people thought of his recent trip to the UK, and
  • A panel member asks how many animals the average person eats in a lifetime (Ans = 2,400 animals)

I also watched the first two episodes of Damages. It’s an excellent TV series about a brilliant lawyer called Patty Hewes (Glenn Close), a young lawyer she is training Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) and the other lawyers who work at Patty’s law firm. Patty is very scheming and very ruthless, but she gets the job done. The case they’re working on is big and complex, and according to Wikipedia, lasts for the whole of the first series. It’s really good, and I highly recommend it.

Part four

Blog editor: Don’t you think the title of today’s post is a bit inappropriate? It’s not exactly ‘mini’, is it?

Moja: Good point! Let’s end it here.

Blog editor: Did you just hear what I said?

Moja: Good night!
