A Sneaky Little Trick

Okay check this one out. I have taken a bit of interest in International Football (you know, soccer to us Americans) recently. The problem is I only have one European Buddy who would know or might know someone that would be able to help me find the right websites to follow the sport.

This is also a bit of an experiment, because so far every time I have linked to her site, Princesse has commented on the post. Let's se if the streak holds true!

Oh la la!! It's a wee bit late sorry Tom! But I did comment, I did!

what is it you're looking for? I'm really crap at football knowledge, but let me warn you - you must support a Scottish team!

Get back to me, let me know what you're looking for.

Well I will reply here first and see if you get it but if not, I will threadjack a comment thread in your blog. Any kind of help regarding where to find the best sites for European soccer weould be great, Scottich Premier League included. I realize that I have never "SEEN" a scottich soccer match, but I have always played the FIFA Soccer series on my Nintendo's, and from the very beginning my two favorite teams to play as were Celtic and Dundee United, both Scottish Premiere League teams.


And I will make a deal with you, I will pick a scottish team to root for sure, if you say the Boston Red sox are your favorite Baseball Team!!

lol fair enough! BOSTON RED SOX ARE MY FAVOURITE BASEBALL TEAM! woooo!

so, for starters I shall send you to http://www.uefa.com/ which I think will have information and news for anything European Football-ish out there.

This - http://www.european-football-statistics.co.uk/ might be good although it does look like a rather homemade website.

And the BBC website will have every piece of news, scores, games, league tables the minute it happens - http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/default.stm

Those were all actually really helpful!

I have made an educated decicion, and will root for Celtic in the Scottish Premiere League from now on!

Why?

Because the Basketball team in Boston is named the Celtics as well!

lol

Princesse! What incredible luck! I told you that I decided that Celtic FC will be my scottish side of choice? Well evidently they just signed an exclusive agreement with Sirius Satellite Radio, hich Carrie and I subscribe to! So if I dont mind getting up at 9:30 AM on Saturdays, I can listen to the matches!

:-P
