Americans are dominating the news agenda. First we watched 12 of them out-boomed in the Ryder Cup, then came word of Liverpool's potential new buyers. And now the LA Lakers have landed.
It's as if the UK has been invaded. But Elevenses is loving every high-octane minute of it.
The Ryder Cup was Hollywood to the last hole and beyond. Hunter Mahan broke down in tears in the press conference afterwards, and you couldn't help but admire the Americans' dignity in defeat (not to the mention the superior dress - and some would argue attractiveness - of their Wags).
While the Ryder Cup is one of the few sporting events that's not really about money, the takeover struggles at Anfield are clearly ONLY about money for George Gillett and Tom Hicks.
It's all playing out like Shakespearean melodrama and you wouldn't be that surprised if one of those two was found dead in The Kop wearing an mid-80s Dalglish shirt in the next few days. (Joke, obviously)
Let's hope all is resolved quick smart and the Liverpool Red Sox can start work on the 'Primark New Anfield' as soon as possible.

But who cares about stats when you can score goals like this one?
