While I aspire to put up more numbers like the phenomenal Fernando Torres than less-than-consistent (but ever hard-working)Dirk Kuyt, I’ve got a few Liverpool odds and ends worth sorting through.
In the newspaper business (and maybe even in Television, where I work, but I don’t pay enough attention),they say “Don’t bury the lead”, so we’ll start off with the juiciest of all the LFC stories.
As it seems, Tom Hicks Jr. (obvious son of Jackass) decided to stop by the famed Sandon, the famed pub that bleeds Liverpool red before and after matches, a bit after the ‘Boro victory. According to reports, after taking pictures of the pub, Junior went inside (with security detail — who, it’s been said, warned him the pub visit was not a wise choice) because he “wanted to go for quite some time to see the birthplace of the club” and “also wanted the opportunity to have a direct talk with some of the supporters.”
Son of the American owner in a bar where the diehards hang out. I wonder, how would he be received?
