Sportsmanlike Conduct of the Day: Everton goalie Tim Howard scores against Bolton from 100 yards away, remains classy as f*ck while doing so.
“I let him know that I was feeling for him,” the US national team member told Sky Sports after speaking with Bolton keeper Adam Bogdan. “It’s not a nice place to be. I’ve been there before, a long, long time ago, and that was why I didn’t celebrate.”
Despite Howard becoming only the fourth goalkeeper in Premier League history to score a goal, Everton went on to lose the match 2-1.
Iconic snacks re-packaged by James Anderson
“The brief was to repackage an existing item, or create packaging for any client we chose. I chose to repackage iconic snacks. Most of today’s packaging for snacks can be misleading, trivial and manipulative. My proposal focuses on the architecture of the snacks and is directed to the consumer who doesn’t wish to participate in the current mainstream packaging trends.”
Five Steps Back of the Day: A church in Pike County, Kentucky, voted this week to ban interracial couples from becoming members of the congregation, as well as from participating in worship services.
Melvin Thompson, a former pastor at the ironically named Gulnare Freewill Baptist Church, asked that a proposal stating uneqivocally that “the church did not condone interracial marriage” be brought to a vote.
It passed 9 to 6, with several members abstaining.
Thompson was apparently incesed that the daughter of church secretary Dean Harville brought her Zimbabwean fiancé to church. Harville said the decision was clearly motivated by racism. “It sure ain’t Christian. It ain’t nothing but the old devil working,” he told the Lexington Herald-Leader.
“Most of us thought that we’d moved well beyond that,” said Pike County Ministerial Association president Randy Johnson. “The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance,” responded 18th century Irish orator John Philpot Curran.
