Bad Juventus Children, Palace Win, Midweek Previews, World Cup, Ronaldo Museum

You lost.
And...a pleasant Humpday to all of you! Isn't it extra pleasant when there is a bevy of footie to enjoy? We'll get to that in a minute. Let's begin in Italy...

So this is pretty hilarious. Juventus fans were banned from gathering behind the goal where the ultras usually do their thing. Presumably they were calling the folks from Naples dirty and poor and all that good stuff. Anywho, the powers that be at The Old Lady decided it would be a good idea to let kids sit behind the goal instead. Not a good idea.

OK, back to the matter at hand. We've got a full slate (not quite -- Palace won their first home match since Pubis took over last night) of Premier League matches to enjoy. Too bad your editor will be on a plane while they are taking place. Not to worry, though. The SSN staff is well trained and will provide regular updates. The most attractive fixture on paper is Manchester United vs. Everton. Moe Syzlak faces his old club for the first time since stepping behind the big bar that is Old Trafford. Elsewhere, Chelsea travel to Sunderland, City go to West Brom, Arsenal host Hull, Spurs head down to Fulham, and Swansea welcome Newcastle. Here's your lot:

Right. So, the World Cup draw is coming up on Friday. Everything will be set and ready to go. Hah! Here's what you need to know, according to the BBC. Grant Wahl is already down there awaiting Friday's action (ESPN2, 11:30 a.m. EST). If you're going and you want to follow the U.S., get ready to log some miles.
He scores when he wants! Which is once every few months, apparently...
The Big Interview. It's huge. Massive. It's Phil Neville! How exciting. United is hosting Everton so it's topical. We'll give it a go.

Cristiano Ronaldo is opening a museum. The Cristiano Ronaldo Museum. Good.

SSN Regulars will know that we're not terribly taken by the international game. Sure, the World Cup can provide some fun but it's just become so commercialized and corrupt and absurd thanks to the fine folks at SPECTRE FIFA. Daniel Harris thinks this World Cup will be different. Better. Stronger. Faster. Sensational? We'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

The hottest new boy band. Just wait till you see their synched dance moves.
We out. Keep it tite. Get to a TV if you can.
