Hopes weren’t exactly high for the England soccer team heading into the 1990 World Cup in Italy. But while the team struggled to make it out of the group stage of the tournament, it caught fire in the later rounds, largely thanks to the brilliance of midfielder Paul Gascoigne. His emergence helped carry England to a semi-final against West Germany, but during the match Gazza picking up a second yellow card — meaning that he would have been ineligible to play in the final had England won. As that grim reality dawned on him, Gascoigne broke down, which led to his teammate Gary Lineker famously pointing to his own eye and mouthing to management that they should “have a word.” By the end of the night, Gazza wouldn’t be the only one in tears: England lost in a penalty-kick shootout, and West Germany went on to lift the World Cup.
11/11/2012 Efven when you want to leave the FBI you have to have a very excuse. The F.B.I. investigation that led to the resignation of David H. Petraeus as C.I.A. director began with a complaint several months ago about “harassing” e-mails sent by Paula Broadwell, Mr Petraeus’s biographer, to an unidentified third person, a government official briefed on the case said Saturday. When F.B.I. agents following up on the complaint began to examine Ms Broadwell’s e-mails, they discovered exchanges between her and Mr Petraeus that revealed that they were having an affair, said the official, who spoke of the investigation on the condition of anonymity. The person who complained about harassing messages from Ms Broadwell, according to the official, was not a family member or a government official. One Congressional official who was briefed on the matter said senior intelligence officials had explained that the F.B.I. investigation “started with two women.” I thank you Firozali A.Mulla DBA
Summing up the difference between Obama and Romney: Obama genuinely wants to make the world better, Romney genuinely just wants to win.
Disgusting. It makes me sick seeing Obama cry in front of his campaigners. If he wants to cry, he should be crying over the poor people in NY/NJ dumpster diving for food, freezing in the cold with no electricity. He is a disgrace.
