Andriy Shevchenko Announces Retirement

A legendary former Chlesea player has called it quits today. Granted, Andriy Shevchenko hardly lived up to legendary status at Stamford Bridge (apart from in the 'transfer flop' category, perhaps), but he was still once one of the premier strikers in all of Europe, once upon a time, and I still have fond memories of him as a player. I mean, who wasn't pretty pleased with this hit?

Anyway, Sheva's timing was pretty odd -- the 35-year-old, who'd been with Dynamo Kyiv since 2009, announced said retirement during the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics. Good work, Sheva. Apparently he's going to go into politics now that his football career is over. After some effort, I've determined the strategy his future campaign managers will use:

Anyone else in Ukrainian politics ever cause that to happen? No, I didn't think so. Book him that seat in Parliament, yo.

PS: I don't think his time at Chelsea was anything like as bad as it's sometimes made out to be. Oh well.
