Red Phoenix Down

I've supported LiverpoolFC for almost 15 years now and I still feel numb every time they loose. I simply cant accept it, no Scouse can ever accept it. But even in the dire moments, when everything goes wrong, when the miracle workers don't quite make the right acts...there will always be the Anthem reverberating through Anfield, Liverpool and through every single true Reds fan out there. The Phoenix shall rise again.
... When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone
- Liverpool Football Club Anthem

They say that often...but it's always not the case is it?

Your football team is shite (given how much possession they had, very comical that they lost the game). And when the Dubai consortium takes over at Anfield, they'll probably be playing in a sandpit a la in the desert.

There's only One United (Henrik Larsson, what a signing).

Inspiring anthem bro!

Happiness is… seeing Liverpool crash out of 2 cup competitions in the space of a few days. Fairly comical defending against Arsenal during the League Cup match. And by the way, it’s a liver bird rather than a phoenix on the badge you twit.

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
