A long stretch of futility ends...

After 128 years of trying, Middlesbrough Football Club has won a major trophy, beating Bolton Wanderers 2-1 in the final of the League Cup.

-- For one thing, I think Cubs and Red Sox fans should stop bitching...128 years is a long, LOOOOOOONG time. It's, what...30-something more than the Red Sox are on at the moment?

-- Can we all agree that Bolton manager Sam Allardyce is a whining putz, now? Mini-Ferguson, in a way...great manager, does a lot with veru little, but good god does he whine like a spoiled brat (or a certain knighted manager of some other club) when things don't go his way. Someone get him his pacifier already.

-- I didn't see it, but it sounded like the game was pretty amateurish, especially in the first half. I hate to be a party-pooper what with a major curse being lifted and all, but should this REALLY qualify as a major competition?

-- And, would it be churlish to mention that Boro wouldn't have made the final if Arsenal hadn't played a team of mostly kids throughout the entire tournament?
