New main sponsor revealed tomorrow
at 19:25 18 Jun 2017

My friend Jonathan - a reliable source, himself - posted on the Stateside Jacks Facebook page that his source is telling him that Bet East is out. The new main sponsor will be revealed tomorrow along with the kit.

Certainly will be interesting to see what Pearlman has come up with.

Gunman in Alexandria, Virginia
at 16:30 14 Jun 2017

Awful stuff just a couple miles from Washington DC. At a baseball field where a practice being held this morning by Republicans for an annual game against Democrats, a gunman calmly walked out and opened fire. The gunman got off about 50-100 rounds, according to reports.

Multiple victims, including Congressman Steve Scalise from Louisiana, who was shot in the hip. At least 2 are in critical condition.

The gunman: 66 year old James T Hodgkinson.



We can expect a lot more of this in America, because the mainstream media is literally endorsing violence with this specific political motive. CNN's parent company is sponsoring a "Shakespeare in the Park" rendition that depicts Trump as Julius Caesar.

Epic meltdown by Philadelphia TV reporter outside comedy club

Make that former reporter, she got fired.

This happened after she was kicked out of a Craig Robinson show.

Kudos to the cop for keeping his cool. Pretty cute girl though, gotta admit.

Crazy that an obscure game like this is live on BeIN Sports here in America.

90min.com's Top 10 Swans players over the last 6 PL seasons
at 17:22 1 Jun 2017

http://www.90min.com/posts/5077434-swansea-city-top-10-premier-league-players?ut

Not a terrible list, I guess it depends how you rate guys who were solid for several seasons against those who were spectacular for just one. Here is what I would have gone with:

1. Siggy
2. Ash
3. Michu
4. Bony
5. Fab
6. Britton
7. Llorente
8. Andre Ayew
9. Dyer
10. Rangel

Honorable mention to Vorm, Davies, and Graham.

While I'm a bit wary of bringing up the subject of Landon Donovan...

I've got to give props to my friend Karl from California, who was sporting his Stateside Jacks T-shirt when he met the USMNT's all time leading goal scorer.



And yes, we (who are calling ourselves "Stateside Jacks" now, not my idea but as good as name as any, I suppose) have begun internally merchandising as part of our campaign to build club support over here. We even have some cool scarves.

In Wales, a Yank Learns the Fear of Relegation (SportsBusines Journal)

Feature on Pearlman.

Since the assumption exists that 17th place is the extent of the ambition going forward:

“If we’re on the edge of the relegation zone, we’re not going to hire 15 people to sell sponsorships,” he said. “But we’d be foolish to not begin to put together some kind of infrastructure to begin to do it.”

Congrats to LLANEDEYRNJACK - Planet Swans 2016/2017 Prediction League Champion!
at 02:34 22 May 2017

The results haven't been updated for Week 38 yet. But I know that I didn't get enough points this week and no one else was within catching distance, given the 2-1 result offered a max 8 points.

llanedeyrnjack got 24 correct outcomes, including 4 correct results (exact score) in the 1st 37 fixtures. That's pretty impressive and makes him a very deserving champion in this tough to predict season. Good job buddy!

If not for Swarbrick's penalty given at Old Trafford, our clean sheet streak
at 18:17 13 May 2017

Would stand at 4 1/2 fixtures, or 405 minutes of football, not including stoppage time.(edited - thanks Uxbridge)

As much as we owe to Siggy and Llorente, this has been what saved us.

Not bad for what was easily the worst defending side in the league, at the start of this streak.
