Yes, we will be there.

Flanker Martin Corry makes the squad for the first time since the World Cup. Despite their status as world champions England will go into the match as underdogs. France have home advantage and are chasing the Grand Slam but England, despite their defeat by Ireland, can still win the championship. In order to do so they have to beat France by a minimum of seven points and hope that Ireland do not run up a cricket score against Scotland.

Committed to PEOPLE’S RIGHT TO KNOW
Daily Star – The Daily Star – Mar 24, 2004
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was apparently asked last July whether he would take over but turned the job down. England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson was another to say No – but only for the 2003-2004 season. He has said he will tell the English Football Association within two weeks whether he will stay on until the 2006 World Cup. AC Milan’s Carlos Ancelotti, Roma’s Fabio Capello and Bayern Munich’s Ottmar Hitzfeld, who has already said no, are regarded as the favourites to succeed Ranieri. Ranieri, whose contract is due to expire in 2007, has led Chelsea into second place in the Premier League this season, nine points behind Arsenal. But with Abramovich lavishing upwards of 150 million pounds to take Chelsea out of debt and initiate a spending spree on players the likes of which English football has not seen before, Kenyon warned that going trophy-less this season would constitute failure for the London club. Chelsea have gone 16 matches without beating Arsenal and Ranieri cannot afford another defeat on Wednesday.

horses Medaglia d’Oro and Pleasantly Perfect are the 9-to-4 betting co-favorites to win Saturday’s $6 million Dubai World Cup, the world’s richest horse race. It could be very uncomfortable in the Olympic village in Athens, Greece, during August… It won’t ever happen for obvious financial reasons, but it sure would be fun to watch an NCAA-style single-elimination NBA playoffs. The 2004 Arena Football 2 season opens this weekend, sadly without the defunct Rochester Brigade. Mark Hamister’s Arena Football League Columbus Destroyers (the Buffalo Destroyers before this season) still can’t win.

Tiger Woods tops the rankings and the betting but with him and several other top players having a rough spell, the field is wide open. Woods is under scrutiny after finishing 46th at the Bay Hill Invitational, his worst finish anywhere for five years.

Something in the dihydrogen monoxide | World dispatch | Guardian…
Guardian Unlimited – Mar 24, 2004
And when they came across the huge threat posed to their constituents by dihydrogen monoxide they did what any elected official should do: they took steps to protect their community. A motion due to go before the city legislature proposed banning the potentially deadly substance from within the city boundaries. Researchers found that the presence of dihydrogen monoxide in Aliso Viejo had reached startling levels: it was present in its crude form, often spilling unmonitored on to the city streets; it was found to be a crucial ingredient in many common chemical compounds; its presence was even detected in that most ubiquitous of civilised artifacts, the styrofoam cup. And it got worse: dihydrogen monoxide is lethal if inhaled, causes severe burns in its gaseous state, and is the major component in acid rain. Prolonged exposure to solid dihydrogen monoxide can cause severe tissue damage. It can, said the city council report, “threaten human safety and health”.

EurasiaNet.org – Mar 24, 2004
The inaugural Challenge Cup, organized by the Asian Football Confederation, is set to take place in 2006. Though still relatively a long-way off, the country’s inclusion in the tournament is a source of hope for many Afghans. As in many countries around the globe, soccer is widely viewed in Afghanistan as the national pastime. The country’s legacy of violence, however, meant that Afghanistan has not competed in the international arena for much of the past two decades. The national team effectively did not exist from 1984, at the height of the Soviet military occupation, through 2001, the year the radical Islamic Taliban movement was toppled by the US-led anti-terrorism campaign.
