Liverpool beat arch rivals Everton away today 2-0. GET IN!

 

Everton could have and should have scored at least 3 goals but they didn’t and that is what matters. Maybe we can start a little run going and get back into the top 4.

 

Also in the FA Cup, Liverpool got drawn against Reading away. I was on the edge of my seat watching the draw, because with only about 10 teams left, Liverpool were still in the pot, and so where Man Utd. That would have been the worst possible outcome for us. Man Utd ended up with a home game against either Leeds Utd from League 1 (Division 3) or Kettering Town from the Conference National (Division 5). Come on Kettering, you can do it!

 

Elsewhere, England got their own back against South Africa by bowling them out for just 119, and winning by 7 Wickets. James Anderson took 5-23 as England take a 2-1 lead with one game left.

 

In F1 news, Felipe Massa has been racing Go-Karts in Brazil, and said that he is looking forward to the 2010 season. Keep up the come back Felipe, but don’t even think about winning any races next year!

 

In film news, Disney has a new Princess for little girls to wish they were. She is called Tiana and will be appearing in ‘The Princess and The Frog’. But for the first time ever in a Disney film the Princess is African-American. This is not the first for American cinema this year. Disney/Pixar release ‘Up’ saw the main supporting character Russell, a Japanese-American being given the voice of a Japanese-American called Jordan Nagai. In the past, Asian characters were voiced by non-Asians.

 

I one way, it is good to see America allowing minorities to have a greater part in animated movies considering their past (and some would say present). But on the other side of the coin, do we really need to make such a fuss over it? If a one-armed character was being voiced by a one-armed person, not nearly as much fuss would be made would it.

 

Tell me what you think. Do you agree, or disagree?
