Salaries and Soccer

In The Wall Street Journal sports section, David Biderman writes:

The U.S. upset of Spain in the Confederations Cup on Wednesday isn’t the only soccer shocker. Money paid for Euro-league players can also elicit gasps. Spanish forwards David Villa and Daniel Güiza and midfielder Xabi Alonso cost a combined $60.2 million in transfer fees alone since 2004. By contrast, the 356 players in Major League Soccer, America’s top league, will make a combined $49.7 million in the 2009 season, according to the league’s Web site.

ManU, Barca, Vuze and More

Having missed the Manchester United vs. FC Barcelona game earlier today, I turned to see how torrent client Azureus ("now known as Vuze") was doing, and discovered the new Vuze 4.2.0.2 ... This torrent client has all kinds of interesting new features. I forgot about the game and started exploring the client, the forge and forums that go with it. Interesting work, and all in Java!

Asian Soccer -- Iraq beats Saudi Arabia

You may not be aware that Iraq won the 14th Asian Football Confederation's championship by beating Saudi Arabia in a final played on July 29, 2007.

The video of the winning goal can be found here. A complete set of video clips of the goals from the championship is available here.

Most people who actually come from Asia, when they talk or think of Asia, think of the land that stretches from Beirut to Beijing and a bit beyond, from West Volga lands to East Timur and a bit beyond.
