I have two eggs. Thanks to those who popped over to see Seeley. I now have Asamoah as well in honour of our striker who has been named in the Ballon D'Or list of world's best footballers. No English players made it but three who play in the Premiership did: Didier Drogba, Cesc Fabregas and Asamoah Gyan. Good names I thought.











Drogba. I do find him attractive.




Cesc Fabregas



Asamoah Gyan

I have been to the dentist this morning and I have the hairdresser this afternoon. Such a busy round!

I am also mulling a post about Booth and am about to embark on my first 20in20 challenge in Bones icons. I need some intellectual stimulation obviously.

This morning was wet and dark when I got up but it is fair now and a bit brighter though still cold.

I like names. I especially like names of sportsmen. Most of the Sunderland players were bought for the outlandish nature of their names. However, baseball, BASEBALL knocks them into a cocked hat. This is such a rich field to exploit that I am going to limit myself to two names today. These two play for the San Francisco Giants who have just seen off the Atlanta Braves in the post season divisional playoffs. Clearly the giant sponge tomahawks were not enough in the face of the these mega names.

First the catcher who looks about 17 and has the delightful name of..... Ta daaaaaaaa

BUSTER POSEY
Perfect start I would say, a little bunch of flowers. They also possess the youngest pitcher to start in post season for many a year. At 21 years old meet the pitcher for the SF Giants



MADISON BUMGARNER
 

My next concern is why they are fascinated by 80s hairstyles (sic) and why none of the pitchers can grow a proper beard. Pictures to follow.

Transfer deadline day has arrived and in keeping with our transfer policy we have signed a player on loan from Manchester City purely on his name: Tal Ben Haim. This makes up for the sale of El Hadj Diouf who had to go after a fight in the dressing room where Anton Ferdinand apparently feared for his life. Diouf was sold the next day.

Disappointingly, we are also after a West Ham player who is only called Calum Davenport. Booooring!

The transfer deadline has been extended beyond 5 o'clock in certain circumstances because of the weather. Sun still out but there have been heavy flurries such as now.

Happy Yule! Stonehenge is the place to be today.

By jings (pace Oor Wullie) we were The Match on Sky's Football First last night so I saw the whole game. Step forward Steed Malbranque. His goal was a corker. Boaz Myhill got nowhere near it. Later, he laid the third goal on a plate for Kenwyne Jones to head in with some proper wing play: take the defender out by playing the ball away from him; get to the byline and cross it into the 6 yard box. Jones just had to let it hit him on the head. Djibril Cisse's injury time 4th produced a rather flattering scoreline, but it did wonders for the goal difference count which is down to -5 in just two games. Let's hope they can keep it going now they have a bit of self belief.

I've put up the Christmas tree, only to discover I can't find the plug to get the fibre optics to work. It must be buried in the spare bedroom somewhere, but it's too dark to look. I'll try again tomorrow when I also have last minute shopping to do. I think I'll go to Durham if it keeps fine. Just need slippers really, but I'll have a rootle around in Past Times for something to give Sue. I always have great difficulty thinking of something to get her for Christmas as she has everything and then I have to come up straight away with something special for her birthday in January. Still, I must be worse being three days after Christmas.
