Yesterday, I built a fire pit out of metal, concrete, and brawn. Yes, I am all that is man. No, no, it's ok; you may hold your applause.
Chelsea U18 are back in live Chelsea TV action today as they travel to Newcastle in the quarterfinals of the FA Youth Cup. With the senior side already out of the Wigan Cup, it is up to the youth to keep our FA Cup tradition going. UP THE BLUES!
Meanwhile, Champions League is back today as well, with Bayern putting on the finishing touches on yet another Cup elimination for Arsenal, and also with Thibaut Courtois and Atletico Madrid taking care of business against Michael Essien's AC Milan. The results may be preordained, but I'm sure it'll be fun watching regardless.
