“The Big Bang Theory” is a fictional sitcom about four scientists who have no social skills and are often mistaken for their own personal help. The show centers around the hilarity of their interactions with women, but also tackles some major scientific issues like string theory. This article will examine one such episode called “The Panty Piñata Polarization.”
The “premier league” is a premier soccer league in England. It was founded in 1888 and has been televised since 1992. The league consists of 20 teams, with the top four teams qualifying for the UEFA Champions League group stage.
The FA Cup’s mystique was alive and well on Saturday, as the third round was decided in spectacular manner.
Joe Ironside mirrored his idol Alan Shearer by scoring the winner versus Newcastle at St James’ Park, grabbing the headlines as Cambridge United’s aspirations of creating a “fairytale” came true.
The lights went out – literally – at the King Power as holders Leicester City marched on to the next round, while there was a “special moment” at Kidderminster Harriers as the lowest-ranked club in the tournament overcome a four-division deficit to defeat Championship opponents Reading.
Upsets in the World Cup? Check.
Goals aplenty? Check.
Extra-curricular drama? Check.
Is your electric bill paid? Oh, che- che- che- che- che- che
Here are the highlights from a fantastic FA Cup third-round match.
It wasn’t quite a “worldie,” but Shearer would be pleased…
Onest Division Cambridge United bucked the odds to upset Newcastle, resulting in ecstatic celebrations from the visitors at full time.
“It has to be the upset of the round,” Fara Williams, a former England international, remarked on Final Score, and striker Joe Ironside concurred.
He told Sport, “It’s something I dreamt of.” “Alan Shearer was my hero growing up, and now I’ve scored the winning goal at St James’ Park!”
Ironside clinched the victory in the second half with a close-range finish, and he insisted it didn’t matter because it wasn’t a ‘worldie’. Late on, though, goalkeeper Dimitar Mitov pulled it out of the bag, making three incredible stops to put Newcastle at bay.
Mark Bonner, the Cambridge manager, said he and his team were experiencing “moments we will never forget.”
Is there any way to top that?
Kidderminster Harriers, the FA Cup’s lowest-ranked team, tried their hardest to accomplish so.
The sixth-tier side overcame Championship club Reading – a squad 79 places above them in the pyramid – thanks to a late goal from Amari Morgan-Smith.
Alan Hutton, a former Scotland defender, told Radio 5 Live: “Special moments are what the FA Cup is all about. One has just happened right in front of us. To put up such a show… Kidderminster Harriers have really outdone themselves.”
Meanwhile, League Two Hartlepool fought back from a goal down to upset Championship side Blackpool thanks to a strike from youngster Joe Grey.
Peterborough avoided a possible shock against Bristol Rovers thanks to a fantastic goal by newcomer Bali Mumba.
Man Utd next after AFC Wimbledon?
The non-league side Kidderminster Harriers was not the only one in action.
Boreham Wood, who have reached the fourth round for the first time in their history, are hoping for a lucrative draw.
Tyrone Marsh and Adrian Clifton scored in a 2-0 win against League One AFC Wimbledon, and manager Luke Garrard has already stated who he wants to play next.
“The £82,000 prize for winning [the tie] is fantastic, and it might be the big one in the following round, travelling away to a Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United, or Liverpool,” he remarked.
Garrard, who has made over 100 games for Wimbledon and is (or was) a popular figure among the club’s supporters, had a memorable day.
Bournemouth defeated fellow National League side Yeovil Town 3-1, while European champions Chelsea defeated Chesterfield.
A nine-goal thriller & a nervy shootout
A day in the FA Cup third round would not be complete without a slew of goals.
Barnsley and Barrow, two Championship strugglers, just could not stop scoring at Oakwell.
In an exciting match that saw Barrow’s Tom Beadling sent off, three goals scored in the last seven minutes of regular time, and nine different players score, Barnsley finally prevailed 5-4 after extra time.
League Two is the second division of football. Barrow was down to ten men for more than 80 minutes of the 120-minute game before Barnsley’s Carlton Morris scored the game-winning goal in extra time.
Leicester City hammered Watford 4-1, Mansfield and Wigan both scored five goals, Queens Park Rangers beat Rotherham United 8-7 on penalties, Everton came from behind to beat Hull City 3-2 in extra time, and Chelsea demolished Chesterfield 5-1.
‘Because we’re Leicester City, we’re used to playing in the dark.’
Despite having a reduced roster, FA Cup holders Leicester City kept their hopes alive with a convincing 4-1 victory against fellow Premier League club Watford.
It was mostly smooth sailing, but a malfunction with the lighting at King Power Stadium forced the game to be delayed for almost six minutes as electricians looked for the source of the problem.
Fans took advantage of the chance to have some fun, using their phones as torches and shouting “we’re Leicester City, we can play in the dark.”
When the game finally resumed, the home crowd was rewarded to four goals from Leicester, with manager Brendan Rodgers declaring himself “thrilled” with the outcome.
