Your daily dose of off-topic shenanigans. GAMEDAY!

Friedemann Vogel

In just a little under 12 hours, the Champions League anthem will blare through the Stamford Bridge PA system.  Are your goosebumps ready?

FYI, in the USA, since this is likely to be one of the few times we're on Fox Sports 2, if you don't have access to that channel (unlike the much more widely available FS1), you can watch Chelsea by signing up for the free FSC2Go trial.  Just remember to cancel before the end of the 7-day free period, unless you want to keep your subscription.

And don't forget, Chelsea U19 play in the UEFA Youth League at 1pm local.  The match will be played at Aldershot and will be live on Chelsea TV.

And this is why I never wear my ring when I play any sports or even do work around the house.  Granted I would've been wearing it in this situation, so that kind of sucks.

IPhone 6+ review | The Verge
So I got this thing preordered for the wife, but the current delivery estimate from AT&T is a slightly ridiculous end of October/early November timeframe.  What's the point of even taking preorders then?  So now my choice is, do I go stand in line at 4-5am on Friday (or even earlier) like a chump in hopes of snagging one at launch (if they even have any available) or do I make her wait at least another month?  I know I wouldn't want to wait that long...  MUST HAVE IT NAO.
