Benny and Betis
First, Balompie Blog favorites Real Betis are celebrating 100 years of insanity! To kick off the festivities, David Meca, the world's best long distance swimmer and a huge Betis fan, swam 100km up the Guadalquivir River in a green and white striped wetsuit, finishing the 24-hour swim in downtown Sevilla. Beeeetis! Read about that and other zany goings-on here.
Also, Benny Feilhaber finally made his debut for Derby County last night in a surprise 1-0 victory over Newcastle. He only played the last 10 minutes, but the Derby County fan forums were nevertheless pleased with his lively showing. I didn't catch the match as it was shown on Setanta, which I do not have. Alas.
I was out of town this weekend, and have yet to watch all the games I made sure to record. So, perhaps more throughout the week.
