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…

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos.
Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.
Think of ho…
