Also from PragueTV:

GALASEK EXPECTED TO STAY WITH AJAX
National team captain Tomas Galasek is set to stay with Ajax when his contract expires in the summer. Ajax sporting director Martin van Geel has told the Dutch media that he expects Galasek to sign a one-year contract extension. The midfielder, now 32, has been an Ajax player since 2000.

Prague TV is reporting on Rosicky's move to La Liga (no, I am not obsessed with Rosicky's possible move thankyouverymuch):

MARCA: ROSICKY TO JOIN ATLETICO
Tomas Rosicky's move to Atletico Madrid is back on again, according to the Spanish newspaper Marca. Borussia Dortmund have accepted an offer of 10 million euros, the paper reports. In an interview with the CTK agency, however, Rosicky's agent, Pavel Paska, has denied Marca's claims, saying that the two clubs have yet to reach an agreement.

That seems to be the question for Rosicky these days. It's now being reported that Rosicky will actually stay at Dortmund as talks with Atletico Madrid have broken down.

I still think he'll end up at the Gunners.

Nedved may just have another pivo sipping buddy in Torino. According to UK website Channel4.com, Juventus could move to buy Zdenek Grygera in January. The Italian side are thought to have been interested in the 25-year-old defender for more than two years, and only Serie A quotas on foreign players prevented Juve buying him when he was a Sparta Praha player.

It seems like Tomas Rosicky's future is still up in the air. The question is now whether he'll be enjoying the air in Madrid or London. For certain, Arsenal could use some help these days given their fall down the Premiership table. I guess we'll have to wait for the January transfer window before we'll know for sure.

Numero the uno - Death Cab for Cutie rocks the llama's ass in concert. You should all be so lucky to see them once in your life. Oh yeah, they played "We Laugh Indoors" especially for me, Miss Guinevere. It was a nice touch. Thanks, guys.

Number the dos - McMennamin's tater tots are crack. Not "like" crack, they "are" crack. Rock and all. Be forewarned. Especially where there is ranch dressing involved. And no freebasing, MJ!

I say tres, I say tres, I say yeah yeah yeah that I walked back from the Crystal Ballroom this time and didn't almost get arrested (papers, please!). This is an accomplishment. Perhaps I'll tell the aforementioned story some other time when I calm down. Who knows when that will be since it's been three months already and I'm still pissed. Papers please!

Zee quattro - Death Cab's opening band had 2, count them 2, string players. Rock out. I love bands with strings in them. I can only explain this by being a girl raised in the south. Hopefully this is rationalizes my love of the Dixie Chicks and Trailer Bride as well (Indie Cred - Death Cab concert = +10, admitting I like the Dixie Chicks = -20). What EVAH.

And for my final act, I present you with the fact that it is totally awesome to go to a Death Cab show in Portland and have everyone sing along to the numbers. I love you, Portland. Rock over London, Rock on Chicago. Portland. You and I were made for each other.

And with that I bid you goodnight.

I owe everyone a thank you for participating in the great Whisk[e]y Toast of 2005 - it was an enormous success. We had participation from Romania (hi, Mihai! :)) to DC to Richmond to New Orleans to Chicago to Portland. If you participated, let me know!

I also owe everyone an explanation of Whiskey versus Whisky, which I will work on tomorrow. Must enjoy day off today. :)

Slainte! You guys are the best!
trendywendy: (martini)
Slainte! I hope you guys got your drink on! :)

(except for the few that were excused - otherwise, no excuses! even from me!)

Radio Praha is reporting that midfielder Karel Poborský will be staying at
SK Dynamo Ceské Budéjovice
in the 2. liga, where he has been playing since being suspended from Sparta Praha. Karel's no stranger to Ceské Budéjovice, as he not only got his start there, but he is co-owner of the team as well. Talk about a vested interest in seeing the team do well. Glad to see he's invested some of his earnings from his days at Slavia. And Zizkov. And Manchester United. And Benfica. And Lazio. And Sparta. So it seems as if moving house is nothing new for Karel.

Czech Manager Karel Bruckner backs the move, which means we'll probably still be seeing Karel play for the Czech side in Germany.

Prague Daily Monitor is reporting that Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky is likely to be on the way out of Borussia Dortmund and on his way to Atletico Madrid when the transfer window opens. Financially strapped Borussia is loathe to let him go, but money talks and it will likely be that Rosicky walks. At any rate, Atletico Madrid has been given until the end of the week to make the deal.

Tonight at 7pm your local time, it's the First Annual TrendyWendy Whisk[e]y Toast Day. Slainte!

I'm really impressed with the new UI for yahoo mail. I've already sent them a few suggestions but for the most part it's pretty slick. Tabbed messaging, RSS feeds in your inbox - some nice features there. Having all your messages on one "page" is nicer than the previous as well.

Apparently there are people out there who have not heard of Richard Cheese. I am so sorry for those people.

Who's afraid of the Big Bad US Men's National Team? Italy, of course.

Since you guys have really good taste in whisk[e]y, I am proposing that we make Thursday, December 15th trendywendy's Whisk[e]y Toast Day.

At 7pm your local time, please join me in a toast to all that is good in the world, namely some fine Whisk[e]y. I'll be having a Maker's Mark, as I hope the rest of you do. If you're local to Portland and want to do this somewhere in public, drop me a comment. Otherwise, put on some Miles, pour a Maker's, and put a smile on your face. Cheers!
trendywendy: (martini)

Mine are Maker's Mark and Jamesons. Yum.
