From the 'News to Us' Dept. ...

"We cannot afford player contracts that do not make long-term sense." -- Liverpool FC principal owner John Henry... wait... wasn't he the owner of the Red Sox when John Lackey was signed for five years and $82.5 million? Beckett's four-year, $68-million contract extension?

And Al Gore Invented the Internet ...

"When we arrived at the Red Sox [in 2002], the New York Yankees were a juggernaut and it wasn't that much of rivalry. We turned it into a rivalry..." -- Liverpool FC principal owner John Henry... Bill Lee, Carlton Fisk, 1978, will surely disagree
