Your Weekend Open Thread - El Clasico Slumber Party / Pillow Fight

Chelsea's valiant army of born-again AVB-ites are not in action until Monday, which reduces us to innocent bystanders of the carnage that is sure to unfold this weekend (El Clasico).

But fear not, my pedigree chums! For here we have this pristine open thread, ready and willing to accept your comments (It wouldn't surprise if all of this weekend's Prem games were won by the home team), thoughts (O Torres, my Torres, rise up and hear the bells), concerns (My iron blew up this evening; HOW WILL MY CLOTHES GET UNWRINKLY!!!?), conundrums (Why are the Chelsea fans in FM12 more pleased with a 2-0 win v. QPR at home than with a 1-0 win away at Man U??)

Tell me of your homeworld, Usul.

Here's what's on tap for Saturday & Sunday:

(all times Eastern; HOME - Away)

SATURDAY:

7 matches in Premier League, all at 10 a.m.: ARSE - Everton; BOLTON - Aston Villa; LIVERPOOL - QPR; MANURE - Wolves; NORWICH - Newcastle; SWANSEA - Clint Dempsey's Bitch-face; WBA - Wigan Not PvA

1 ginormous match (and a few more inconsequential ones, I'm sure) in La Liga, at 4 p.m.: REAL MADRID - Barcelona (tigers, bears, Mourinho, OH MY!)

Umpteen French League matches on FSC.tv and the odd Portuguese, Dutch, and Italian matchup on ESPN 3.

SUNDAY:

2 semi-intriguing matchups in the Prem (well, 1 intriguing, and 1 wholly worthless, not in that order), at 8:45 a.m.: SUNDERLAND - Blackburn; at 11 a.m. STOKE - Spuds

Germany's 2 best are in action, at 9:30 a.m.: DORTMUND - Kaiserslautern; at 11:30 a.m.: STUTTGART - Bayern

And 2 of our potential Italian CL opponents will take the field as well, at 9:00 a.m.: BOLOGNA - AC Milan; at 2:45 p.m.: NOVARA - Napoli

At least those are the ones that I care about...

Oh...and, of course, let's not forget that FIFA's entirely useless Club World Cup kicks off in earnest this weekend, with some Tunisian team playing the Qatari Al-Sadd who made headlines earlier with cheating & brawling. Now that's what I call a showcase!
