In a move mirroring their deal in Britain, ESPN has reached an agreement to televise a package of Premier League matches in the US for 2009-2010 beginning Saturday and through the completion of the season in May. Double the amount of Premier League games I can watch now… All they need now is to reach a deal with the SPL and I’ll be as happy as a pig in shit…

Jenson Button secured a dream debut victory for the Brawn GP team after dominating the Australian Grand Prix. This is the first time in a long time I stayed up to watch a race live, and I was glad Jensen won as he’s been an also-ran for far too long. And with all the new regulation it’s truly a new age in Formula One, sure the cars are uglier, but they look like they’re made for racing now…

Social networking sites such as Facebook could raise your risk of serious health problems by reducing levels of face-to-face contact, a doctor claims. Daily Mail scaremongering much? I’m surprised they didn’t managed to fit a reference to Maddie McCann or Princess Diana in there…

Obama staff arrives to White House stuck in dark ages of technology. The team members, accustomed to working on Macintoshes, found computers outfitted with six-year-old versions of Microsoft software. Laptops were scarce, assigned to only a few people in the West Wing.

The Boston Red Sox have announced the signing of right-hander John Smoltz. It’s official now after a few days speculation, this makes me very sad. It’s hard to picture Smoltz in anything but a Braves jersey…

Bad news: We’re officially in a recession. Good news: We have been for a year… If you consider that good news…

We have “only one President at a time,” Barack Obama said in his debut press conference as President-elect. Normally, that would be a safe assumption – but we’re learning not to assume anything as the charcoal-dreary economic winter approaches. In the end, though, it will not be the creative paralysis that defines Bush. It will be his intellectual laziness, at home and abroad. Bush never understood, or cared about, the delicate balance between freedom and regulation that was necessary to make markets work. He never understood, or cared about, the delicate balance between freedom and equity that was necessary to maintain the strong middle class required for both prosperity and democracy. He never considered the complexities of the cultures he was invading. He never understood that faith, unaccompanied by rigorous skepticism, is a recipe for myopia and foolishness. He is less than President now, and that is appropriate. He was never very much of one.

An Apple iPhone advert has been banned in the UK by the advertising standards watchdog for exaggerating the phone’s speed. There was only 17 complaints and it got pulled, if there was something like that over here there would be no adverts on TV at all…
