Bomp! Bomp! Bomp!

It's back!

Only six weeks after the previous season and one month after someone at AXN fucked up and advertised that it would be starting on 8 October 2004.

Withdrawal symptoms. Diminishing.

Woohoo!

Some thoughts before this Race begins:

1. Hmmm. Another couple who's looking to the Race being able to take them to "the next level!" Pre-marital sex's not enough any more! Apparently!

2. Wrestlers! Utahans! Mormons!

3. Star Wars references!

4. African-Americans named for Greek goddesses! Kim's just about the only normally-monikered one so far!

Clearly, when the ST pulls news articles off foreign agencies, they don't bother to check the copy:

United ready to blood Rossi, 19

London - ARSENAL may treat the League Cup as a minor competition, fielding a weakened side especially when facing unfancied opponents.

But, for Manchester United, it could prove to be the perfect place to regain the confidence they need to salvage their Premiership title challenge.

The Red Devils face fellow-Premiership outfit Crystal Palace in their League Cup fourth-round match today.

If United can establish an early advantage, Ferguson could well introduce teenager Giuseppe Rossi into the game, reported the United official website.

The Italian, who was born in the United States but plays for the Italy Under-19 side, was given a squad number only yesterday.

Signed in July, the 17-year-old striker has been giving a good account of himself in United Reserves.

Ferguson had previously used the League Cup to blood youngsters Gerard Pique and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake in the last round against Crewe. -- AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE


Figured it out yet?
