Does your ball roll at normal speed?

Flying in the face of recent efforts to redefine the scientist stereotype, described at cosmic variance, entropy bound and inkycircus*, comes the latest rebuttle from no less thanJose Mourinho, who manages to make his feelings known during an interview about Chelsea's pitch condition prior to their Champion's League fixture with Barcelona:
'Sometimes you see beautiful people with no brains. Sometimes you have ugly people who are intelligent, like scientists,' he said.

'Our pitch is a bit like that. From the top it's a disgrace but the ball rolls at normal speed.'
*By the way this is a great science news blog that I only just cottoned onto, which I heartily recommended to you all, if you haven't been there already.

At least they tried. I have to say I've got very distracted by all the many faces to look at. Bad Paul.

Thanks for the heads-up - as they say in the beautiful game - see what i did there? Continued my football theme - I picked up the ball and ran with it.

Back of the net.

You will get a beautiful cloth which in the game if we want to need the beautiful cloth, we can use our own Scions Of Fate gold to buy. The one I owned on my character is one of my friends sent to me the necessary SOF gold. Sometimes we can share the trophy as the necessary Scions Of Fate money together, and we do quest together. I do not have enough confidence and cheap SOF gold about my weak memory. First I have to buy sof gold to improve my pet which I have a lovely leopard in this game.
