Celebrity "Death Watch"... Elton John??

Last night the Eagles beat the Cowboys, 37-9.
It looks like they will be in SB 52.
It made me think of all the celebrity deaths associated with teams who go to major championships...
Elton John would be one to watch..

There's been a lot of talk about JFK, Marilyn Monroe etc..
Elton wrote a song about Monroe, 
(Goodbye Norma Jean).

He also wrote Philadelphia Freedom.

Elton's birthday is 49 days after the SB.
(1m 21d) 121=Revelation. 
Philadelphia is mentioned in the revelation book of the Bible. 
Christmas Day is 41 days before SB. 

Remember George Michael died last Christmas??
George and Elton teamed up years ago with the song  "Don't let the sun go down on me" in December 1991.

Another date to watch, December 14th, (52 days before SB).

EPL Prediction...

Looking at The English Premier League which starts this weekend.

Going with my 131 theory, Arsenal are in their 131st season, which was pointed out to me by 
<Van der Meikle>.

Also, I've mentioned this before but, Petr Cech is in his 3rd season with Arsenal now.
When he got traded from Chelsea, after 333 games for them. He switched his number from 1, to 33.
He also just turned 33 years old.
Why? Why did he do that??
Maybe he's gonna win a title in 3 years.

Also, Cech's bday is 83 days (Football=83) before the start of Arsenals season on August 11th. They start on Friday, rest of league starts Saturday and Sunday. 

I'm going with Arsenal.

Jack Charlton... The first foreign coach of Irish soccer team..

Jack Charlton was the first foreign coach of the Republic of Ireland soccer team.

It was a bit controversial at the time cos he played for England and was part of their 1966 squad who won the World Cup.

He was born on May 8th (5/8=58=Freemason).
Jack Charlton=116

Coincidentally his first match was against Wales.
Take the zero out, it's 116 just like Jack Charlton.
That match was on March 26th which was 1 month 19 days after he took over (February 7th).

Ireland qualified for their first major tournament, (Euro '88).
Scotland actually did Ireland a favour in their final qualifying match against Bulgaria.
Bulgaria needed just a draw/tie at home to qualify but we're 86'd by a Gary Mackay goal in the 86th minute.
Gary Mackay=630

The rest is history, Ireland went to Germany for the Euros in '88.

Their first match in Euro '88 was funnily enough against Charlton's former team, England.
Ray Houghton gets the winning goal for Ireland after just 6 minutes.
Ray Houghton's bday from (Jan 9th) to the date of the match (Jun 12th) is 211 days.
Six minutes =153
In the bible there was a story about the 'miracle' catch of 153 fish. Well this was certainly a 'miracle' of its own.
Ireland had beaten the 'auld enemy' for the first time since 1949.

Charlton took Ireland to their first World Cup in 1990 in Italy.
They got through the group stages and played Romania in the last 16.
The match went to penalties.
Ireland won the shootout 5-4.
The only player to miss was Romania's Daniel Timofte.
Daniel Timofte =133
This is a hoax =133

Ireland went on to play hosts Italy in the Quarter Finals.
Toto Schillaci ends Ireland's World Cup with a goal in 38th minute
From his bday til the date of the match was... 93 days!!

Ireland also qualified for the 1994 World Cup in the USA but it took a late Alan McLoughlin goal against Northern Ireland to do it.
Again, Alan McLoughlin's bday was 211 days (see Ray Houghton above) before the match.

Ireland went out in the last 16 match against Holland.
Only scoring two goals in the whole tournament.

Charlton's last match in charge was against Holland on 13th December 1995. Ireland lost 2-0.
Charlton resigned on 21st December 1995, 227 (Pi) days after his bday.

Note: The 2nd foreign coach to take charge of Irish soccer team was Giovanni Trappatoni.
His bday is????
Take a guess...
Ah go on...

Its March 17th... St. Patrick's Day!!!

Ah now...

The Open... my pick(s)

Looking at the field for The Open...
Phil Mickelson looks like a contender.
It's the 146th Open.
Phil Mickelson =146.
Also he fired his caddie, 33 days before the final day of The Open.
Phil's birthday is June 16th.
That's 37 days before Sunday. That's also 888 hours.
There's been a lot of 8s lately.
Roger Federer winning his 8th Wimbledon.
(Roger's bday is 8/8).
I'm going with Phil!

A few basically unknowns to watch for...
JB Holmes
Alexander Björk
Russell Knox
Xander Schauffele

Wesley Bryan bday is 119 days before Sunday.
He's 225-1

JB Holmes has 7 wins on PGA Tour.
His bday is 88 days before Sundays final round.
Also 9 months 3 days after.
He's 125-1, worth an each way bet.

Louis Oosthuizen bday is 88 days after Sunday.
He's 50-1.

Celtic/Rangers history...

One of the biggest rivalries in rigged sports is
Glasgow Celtic and Glasgow Rangers.

Celtic, mostly supported by catholics and supposedly formed by an Irish monk, (Brother Walfrid) on 6th November 1887.

Rangers mostly supported by protestants.

Celtic colours are Green and White.
Rangers are blue and white.

Rangers are having major financial difficulties lately and have gone through a few different owners. 
The most famous of these are, Craig Whyte and right after Mr. Whyte, a guy named Charles Green.
That's quite ironic that these two guys are named, Green and Whyte which are Celtics colours!!!

For years, Rangers refused to sign players who were Catholic. A few Catholic players have slipped through the cracks but in 1989, Maurice Johnston signed for Rangers.
Johnston was not only a Catholic, but a former Celtic player!
Fans from both teams in Glasgow were livid.

On May 25th 1967, Celtic were the first British team to win the European Cup (now named Champions League).

Rangers have won the Scottish League title a record 54 times.

There's so much more...
Both teams have won the Scottish League title 9 times in a row.

Fergus McCann rescued Celtic FC in 1994 when the Bank of Scotland informed Celtic they were calling in the "receivers" as it was in a lot of debt.
That date was March 3rd 1994. (3/3)..

I watched a recent "Old Firm" derby and had to laugh when Rangers made a substitution... they brought on a player called "Dodoo" who replaced a player called "Windass"... I kid you not!
