In other news, water is wet

Derby relegated.

Honestly, I'm a little surprised that it took this long. I guess they still have something to fight for -- beating Sunderland's points total from 2003 in order to not be actually the worst team ever to play in the Premier League. They'd need 20 points to do that. They currently have 11. Good luck, boys. It's pretty clear you'll need it.

In which I say something nice about USsoccer.com

New away kit? Thumbs up. When I first saw this, I thought it was navy blue, but it looks like it's actually black, which is just fine with me. I'm not the hugest fan of the random red collar thing, but I can live with it. And really, anything is better than the new home kit. It's kind of nice to see them getting away from red, white, and blue; while I understand it's patriotic and I'm sure everyone there loves America, limiting yourself to three colors isn't generally a good idea. Though I just realized -- what will this mean the keeper kit looks like? Since those tend to be really different from the regular jerseys, I fear poor Tim Howard and Brad Guzan will have to wear neon yellow or something. But overall, I approve. Which I'm sure is just what Nike was going for.

The YNT blog hates me. Dudes, not my fault you got scooped on the final Olympic qualifying roster.
