If you're ever bored and you're in need of a decent laugh -- though said laugh might be more out of frustration than amusement -- head over to NewsNow and browse the headlines under the names of some of Europe's most coveted football players.  Take Marco Reus, for example.

"Chelsea lead race for Reus" (Goal, Dec.6)
"Chelsea emerge as favorites to sign Germany star Marco Reus..." (Mirror, Dec.6)

Exciting, right?  We're not only favorites, we're leading the race!  Oh boy oh boy oh boy!  Better get that custom shirt ordered already.

But then...

"Barcelona new favorites to sign Marco Reus ahead of Manchester City" (Caughtoffside, citing BILD, Dec.5)
"Man Utd prepare £80m TRIPLE raid on Kevin Strootman, Mario Gotze and Marco Reus" (Star, Dec.5)
"Bayern Pull Out, Road Clear For Man Utd To Seal Move..." (Squawka, Dec.4)

Real Madrid, Arsenal, and even Liverpool are thrown around with unerring regularity, too, but I think you get the picture.  You spin the wheel, a name falls out.  That's your current favorite for Reus's signature.  Tomorrow's another day, another spin.  Today (well, Saturday), it's our turn.  Hurray?
