Ladies and gentlemen, there is a game just as addictive (and twice as lame) as Second Life. I’ll not be playing Football Manager ’07 again this week, though I can say with considerable pride, you’re nobody in this world until you’ve beaten Crawley Town, 4-0.

For one day at least, my virtual exploits cannot hold a candle to the real thing. An 88th minute header by Stuporhoops Supersub Ray Jones gave QPR a 1-0 win at table topping Cardiff City Friday night, the latter’s first home loss of the season.
