I have played soccer with my boys...I am sure it was an accident but she kicked it hard enough to blow the little boys hat off (see the video if you can). There were no knocked out teeth, black eye or soccer ball inpression on his forehead. I just thought it would make for a funnier chop.
I like Blagojevich. I think he's guilty of being a politician and little else. I didn't examine the evidence, but his record as Governor is pretty darn OK, and he still has throngs of supporters, despite (I'm pretty sure) doing exactly what he was said to have done.
Lining your pockets is nothing new in politics, but Blagojevich has a big, dirty mouth, and because he was actually trying to serve the people as Governor and not the ever-present corporate interests, he made a lot of enemies.
Let's this be a lesson, kids. Keep your traps shut when you are looking to sell senate seats.
