A sincere congratulations this bleary eyed Saturday moaning to former QPR gaffer Ian Holloway, whose Plymouth Argyle side have advanced to the final 16 of the F.A. Cup for the first time in nearly 20 years. Argyle’s 2-0 win at Barnet earlier today was punctuated by an 83rd minute strike by Chelsea loaner Scott Sinclair (above) that had the Radio Devon dudes screaming about the greatest goal they ever witnessed, Christ and the Easter Bunny in a reacharound, etc. Something to look forward to on FSC’s feed of the Sky highlights show later tonight, in any case.
Luton Town’s reward for beating QPR in a hotly contested replay this past Wednesday night was a brutal 4-0 beating at the hands of Blackburn Rovers. The visitors’ Matt “Don’t Call Me Delia” Derbyshire — a former Rovers community office employee — scored twice.
Given Alexi Lalas’ past efforts playing the Stephen Bishop part to Keith Olbermann’s John Belushi, and I have to say this video represents an even greater musical atrocity. On the other hand, I’m not sure there’s another So. Cal sports GM willing to tolerate Steve Jones talking about beating off to MySpace. Where’s the equal time for Ned Colletti?
