Blackburn Stuns ManU At Old Trafford

((HT: BarclaysPremierLeague/youtube/UpsYouCantDoThat))

The Premier League, to the HQ, is like having the new toy in the room...
And it takes a little while to explain to TBH what all this stuff is about.
This was like the Pittsburgh Pirates beating the New York Yankees at Yankees Stadium... it was that bad...

And a lot of people are already calling this the "Upset of the Season."

The short version... Blackburn Rovers are near the bottom of the standings (table) and could be relegated (demoted) if things don't turn around by the end of the year. Being sent to the nPower Championsip league could cause a loss of 60-million pounds (close to $100M) in operating revenue for a team that finishes in the bottom three.

So, Rovers, who thought about firing their coach... knocked off Manchester United 3-2 with a goal at the 80th minute.

And Dimitar Berbatov is still proving to be a pain in the butt for the Reds. A penalty of his led to the first goal...
