Didier Drogba Sings Farewell to the Blues

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has announced, just days after his magnificent header to tie and game winning penalty shootout goal against Bayern Munich in Chelsea's first-ever Champions League victory, that he will be departing Chelsea and moving on to a "new challenge".

Drogba told Chelsea's website, "I wanted to put an end to the speculation and confirm that I am leaving Chelsea," and continued, "it has been a very difficult decision for me to make and I am very proud of what we have achieved, but the time is right for a new challenge for me."

In Drogba's 8 years with the club, he has scored 157 goals in 341 appearances, ranking 4th in club history. Chelsea have won every major championship in Drogba's run with the team, who he humbly credits before himself.

Drogba's career with Chelsea was a rollercoaster. At times, the world-class striker found himself at the wrong end of some bad decisions on the pitch, proving costly to himself and the club in crucial games. At other times, like 2012's brilliant showing in the clutch moments of the Champions League match against Bayern Munich, Drogba proved himself the most valuable player on the team, and one of the best in the world.

Drogba moves on now, at 34, to a new chapter in his life and career. The Ivory Coast legend leaves on the highest note possible, immortalized on the pitch and the tape, an iconic figure that will live in Chelsea lore forever. As a Blues supporter myself, I say good luck to Didier in the future, I hope to see you come home someday, but most importantly, THANK YOU!

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

WWE Brand Split Mock Draft

So we're coming up very close to the brand split in the WWE, where RAW and Smackdown will be exclusive brands with exclusive rosters, and Smackdown will be going live every Tuesday.
Now, there are a number of factors that could shift the way the draft is handled. For example, we're still uncertain which show Shane and Stephanie will run. We're still unsure if they're certainly going to bring back the World Heavyweight Championship, or run with my idea and merge the IC/US titles and make that the main title on Smackdown. We're still not aware if tag teams will be split, if each show will have a unique division and title. We're still not sure if we're going to have women exclusive to each show and what that means for the Women's Championship.
Now, barring all surprise (not currently on the roster, and not NXT) draft choices, let us work with a few assumptions. First, I want to assume they will be bringing the World Heavyweight Championship back. I want t…
