The Funnies

This clip had been making the rounds in soccer circles, but I can't get over how funny it is.

Last year when Hull City played Manchester City in the English Premier League, Hull City were playing so poorly that manager Phil Brown held his half-time team talk out on the pitch in a move that you don't usually see outside of lower league or youth games. Well, in the same fixture this year, midfielder Jimmy Bullard scored an equalizer (on a dodgy penalty call) and then had a "team talk" goal celebration.

timing is everything and apparently Brown is not at all angry about being shown up. Of course, he wouldn't be, since after an unbeated November, the Tigers are four points clear of the relegation zone, are playing well and Brown has kept his job.
