"Following an exploratory arthroscopic operation on Wednesday, it was determined that Ruud van Nistelrooy had a partially torn meniscus in his right knee. Real Madrid's medical staff, Dr. Steadman and the player decided to surgically repair the damaged knee, by which he will miss between six and nine months."
:-( As if they haven't got enough injuries to deal with already. They seem to be lacking in every position right now - Iker is not at his best, the defence is particularly weak and the injuries are rampant. It is going to be rough going over the next couple of months. Still, they are only 2 points out of first right now so hopefully it won't be that bad. At least all the young players will be given a chance to get more experience.
This Masters Cup event is most confusing. I'm still trying to figure out the various scenarios regarding who may be going to the Semis in the Red Group. I'm still hoping Gilles Simon can pull through but at this point I think that might be wishful thinking on my part.
Tonight I'm taking a quick trip to the Eaton Centre H&M in an effort to find something to wear to the Board Christmas dinner this Saturday. I can't believe it's that time of year already. I dread shopping there and hope that I am able to find something quickly.
Latest news in my email box: the National Gallery in Ottawa is presenting a Bernini exhibition running from Nov 28 to Mar 8. Bastards!! They couldn't wait till the summer when I plan on returning to Ottawa. OK, I shouldn't complain. I know the exhibit will consist mainly of chintzy little busts and I've already seen the REAL Berninis in Rome but still, it's the principle of the thing. I would like to put it out there to the Cosmos that if there are any Rapha or Leo exhibits planned in the area, that they aren't scheduled until the spring when I can afford to travel again!
