Sir Alex Ferguson is retiring as the Manager of Manchester United.

http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/news....34.html

While the man caused me much heartburn on Saturday & Sundays for the last 15 years (I'm an Arsenal fan), I really enjoyed watching his teams play. I'll really miss his firey attitude and desire to dominate the world's most popular sport.

I would have really liked to see him win another trebble before he retired (3 major trophies in a single season).

I saw Pele' play his last game in person in 1977... an electric game.

But soccer is essentially boring to watch, though fun to play... at least for me.

Ulight,

I was hoping for something humorous, my proverbial gawd that was disturbing. Sure hope Ken, Three, etc. don't see that.

Well done though. Touche.
