Journal stoolpigeon's Journal: You Just Never Know 1

OK - I'm not going to talk about sports all the time, but this week-end I started watching the Everton/Manchester United match. I'm an Everton fan. When I had to time to check it out, the second half had just started and it was 1-1. I was pleasantly surprised. But within just a few minutes Man U scored twice and it was 3-1. I really didn't feel like watching Everton get crushed and I had other stuff I ought to be doing anyway, so I shut it off and went and did the other stuff. Last night I was checking scores from throughout the day and that match ended in a 4-4 draw. Should have watched it, but you just never know. (And the super-bonus, didn't expect it awesome news was that Liverpool lost to West Brom and Everton actually gained a point on them. Woot!)
Now to pull this around to something less sport-y. I'm learning git and it's pretty cool. That is all.
