syafeerul: world of football

european leagues for 2011/2012 season ended a week ago. full of drama this season. sadly only one of my favorite clubs ended with a silverware. the rest had a great season but fall dramatically at the end.

 my favorite club of all time. they had a though season. with injuries to key players and absence of star players. scholesy was called back to fill the void when fletcher carrick anderson, all injured.

the season saw emergence of cleverly, welbeck.. great young players. although they had a difficult season, they did well, being top towards season end. only a flop at everton costs them the title. man city dramatically wins with goals in injury time.. who would’ve though that.. anyhow man city did well. and they deservedly win the title.

manchester united need to come stronger next season. they need to strengthen the squad. i hope fergie would have something in mind for next season.. great fight. great season. see you guys again next season..

its quite weird when the bavarian didn’t win the title. they’re always the strongest team in bundesliga. but this season borussia dortmund proved otherwise. the  bavarian finished second. fair enough, the winning team played better game through the season. but the most unsatisfying fact was that when they lost to chelsea in the champions league finals. it would’ve been acceptable should chelsea played better. but the blues was defensive for the whole game. the bavarian should’ve won the game.. yet lady luck was not on their side. next season i hope.. 

 in serie A, juventus have always been my favorite. the old lady finally won the scudetto. last season they worked hard, building up the understanding between new and old players. this season they came strong and won the title.

but this would be the last for club’s greatest player Alessandro Del Piero. he played his last game with Juve and he now hangs his boots. i must say, despite his small physical appearance compared to most top players today excluding messi, he was one of the italy’s finest forward. juventus will miss him dearly next season. wish someone would be able to replace him.

congrats juve on a great season. and to del piero, thanks for your great service to the club.

in france, montpellier surprisingly won the title. i didn’t follow ligue 1 very often but i didn’t expect them to win. here i’d watch lyon, marseille and auxerre.. none won anything. and auxerre was bottom.. nothing much to say for this league i guess.

a great rivalry between the giants in la liga saw real madrid finally winning the title. they both had a great season. a neck to neck fight throughout the season. if you ask, i’m not supporting any club here. i do watch real madrid and valencia though.. but no favorite ones here..

the season was a dramatic one. on of the greatest season i must say. and now EURO2012 awaits.. let’s see who’s the champion of europe! 

Surrogate Father

i was browsing, googling for surrogate father and this came out..

The Smiths had no children and decided to use a proxy father to start their family. On the day the proxy father was to arrive, Mr. Smith kissed his wife and said,

“I’m off. The man should be here soon”.

Half an hour later, just by chance, a door-to-door baby photographer rang the doorbell, hoping to make a sale.

“Good morning madam. You don’t know me, but I’ve come to….”

“Oh, no need to explain. I’ve been expecting you,” Mrs Smith cut in.

“Really?” the photographer asked.

“Well, good! I’ve made a specialty of babies.”

“That’s what my husband and I had hoped. Please come in and have a seat. Just where do we start?” asked Mrs Smith, blushing.

“Leave everything to me. I usually try two in the bathtub, one on the couch and perhaps a couple on the bed. Sometimes the living room floor is fun too; you can really spread out.”

“Bathtub, living room floor? No wonder it didn’t work for Harry and me.

“Well, madam, none of us can guarantee a good one every time. But if we try several different positions and I shoot from six or seven angles, I’m sure you’ll be pleased with the results.”

“I hope we can get this over with quickly,” gasped Mrs Smith.

“Madam, in my line of work, a man must take his time. I’d love to be in and out in five minutes, but you’d be disappointed with that, I’m sure.”

“Don’t I know!!” Mrs Smith exclaimed.

The photographer opened his briefcase and pulled out a portfolio of his baby pictures.

“This was done on the top of a bus in downtown London.”

“Oh my!!” Mrs Smith exclaimed, tugging at her handkerchief.

“And these twins turned out exceptionally well when you consider their mother was so difficult to work with.”

The photographer handed Mrs Smith the picture.

“She was difficult?” asked Mrs Smith.

“Yes, I’m afraid so I finally had to take her to Hyde Park to get the job done right. People were crowding around four and five deep, pushing to get a good look.”

“Four and five deep?” asked Mrs Smith, eyes widened in amazement.

“Yes,” the photographer said. “And for more than three hours too. The mother was constantly squealing and yelling. I could hardly concentrate. Then darkness approached and I began to rush my shots. Finally, when the squirrels began nibbling on my equipment I just packed it all in.”

Mrs Smith leaned forward. “You mean they actually chewed on your, er..,um.., ah…. equipment?”

“That’s right. Well madam, if you’re ready, I’ll set up my tripod so that we can get to work.”

“Tripod??” Mrs Smith looked extremely worried now.

“Oh yes, I have to use a tripod to rest my Canon on. It’s much too big for me to hold while I’m getting ready for action. Madam? Madam?

Good Grief, she’s fainted!!

haha.. funny story. anyway, why the heck i’m googling this? i’m now un-officially surrogate father to two cute kittens. my mom is supposed to be taking care of them but it seems like i’m the one closer to them. they’re still afraid of my mom and dad. but maybe after sometime they’ll be ok. but for now, they’re in my hands. cute lil babies.. article from David P Brown.
