Dalglish in Texas


Kenny Dalglish used to be one of my heroes, not just because he was from Glasgow, and had great hair, but because he played football real good. So, I was interested to read this story about his son, Paul, commenting on why he moved to Texas:

"I had always wanted to come to the States, not just for the football but for the lifestyle... And the football out here is deadly serious. That's why I wanted to come here before I was 30, I didn't want people to accuse me of coming out here to take the money."

I can empathise with Dalglish. I didn't come to the States just for the theology, but for the lifestyle too. Alas, theology here is not deadly serious - at times, it's a bit of a joke. The scholarship money is good, but it's not that good. Soon, I'll have to start working for a living again.

And, I'm still waiting for my parents to use Skype...

But he played for CELTIC!

It really wasn't that good? You really felt violated by it?

Was it different from how he is on Da Ali G Show? Because I love watching that show, so I just figure that it's an extension of that...

I never saw King Kenny as a Celtic player - I was a Liverpool fan from the early 80s onwards.

You never know, Shed, you might end up becoming the George Best of systematic theology - I just hope that your liver can handle it!
