Santa Claus and Sports Rivalry

Christmas is the season to be merry and joyful.

But not in the world of sports.

A game or match on Christmas day is just like any other games. It can even get nastier because there are more fans watching especially if it's between regional rivals like Manchester United and Manchester City. But Christmas is dominated by the color red, which is the symbolic color for Manchester United while Manchester City proudly supports sky blue as their color. Thus, after a handful of complaints from City fans to Santa Claus, what did he decide to do?
That's right.

A half-and-half Santa Claus for the two teams from Manchester!

So if a Manchester City fan comes up to take a photo with him, he can show his "blue side" to go along with not only the Christmas theme, but also the fandom side!
Merry Christmas to all my sports fans and enjoy your holidays with your favorite teams and even though tis the season to be jolly...

Root for your favorite teams with more passion and intensity this holiday!

A comparison of Airport Transfers Leeds to Manchester: Train vs. Taxi
Train and taxi are two very popular methods for Leeds to Manchester airport transfer, but none of them can be declared better or a winner. The better method depends on the unique situation and needs of the traveler. In the following paragraphs, we will compare these popular methods and help you decide the method most suited for your needs. Cost: Train vs. Taxi Most of the time, the cost of the Leeds to Manchester airport transfer is the deciding factor for choosing a train over a taxi. However, many people only compare fare differences between both traveling methods and fail to account for other factors that are as important as the fare of the journey. A train journey only costs around £20 or £25. On the other hand, a taxi will charge somewhere around £70. Let us discuss other important factors that we just mentioned in the above lines. Time: Train vs. Taxi The second most important point for Leeds to Manchester airport transfer is the time it takes you to reach your final destination. Usually, people think that a taxi will take less time to reach the destination as compared to the train. However, a comparison between the time taken by a taxi from Leeds to Manchester and a train from Leeds to Manchester demonstrates that things are not so simple. If we only consider train journey, the train actually takes less time to cover the distance because it does not have to face the traffic, which a taxi must. However, it is very important to consider the time it takes you to reach your actual destination—the train station can hardly be the final place you want to reach. So, unless your final destination is very near to the train station, you will need a cab, taxi, or a similar means to cover the distance from the train station to your destination. After adding this time, you can compare time-saving, if any, you will get by hiring a taxi over a train. Location: Train vs. Taxi The location of the train station and your final destination becomes important again when it comes to choosing between a taxi and a train. If your destination is near to the train station, you are more likely to find your train journey more convenient. However, if you need to take another train, bus, or taxi, you might consider hiring a taxi from Leeds to Manchester in the first place. Luggage The amount of your luggage is another consideration that you might overlook. It is relatively more difficult to handle your heavy luggage at a train station, and do not forget the challenge of loading and unloading your luggage. Taking a train for airport transfers Leeds to Manchester airport without luggage is another thing, but a train journey with a lot of luggage is entirely something else. If you are not ready to struggle with your luggage on your train journey, it is highly recommended to take a taxi and spare yourself some trouble. Children Trains in the UK are very safe for children to travel, and you should not have any problem during Leeds to Manchester airport transfer. However, it is not always the case but depends on some important factors, and the number of children can easily be regarded as the first of these factors. While one adult can easily handle a couple of children, it is difficult to handle them when there are 4 or 5 of them. Children’s ages and mood are also very important. Please remember that children like to move around and it can become very difficult for one or two adults to handle many children. As a general rule, one adult should handle no more than two children. Pets Pets are allowed on almost all public transport vehicles in the UK, and you can take up to 2 pets with you free of cost during your airport transfers Leeds to Manchester airport. Pets pose similar challenges as children do. They like to play and move, among many other things. And like children, their moods can be unpredictable at times. So, if you have any doubts about the manageability of your pet, prefer a taxi over train to get to the Airport without hassle. Quick Summary For your airport transfers Leeds to Manchester, train and taxi are two very good options. Each alternative has its advantages and disadvantages. As a general guideline, you will feel convenient on the train if: · Your destination is nearer to a train station · You do not have a lot of luggage · You do not have many children with you · You do not have many pets with you On the other hand, you should prefer traveling by taxi if: · Your destination is far from a train station · You have a lot of luggage that will be difficult to handle on your own · You have more than 2 children per adult · You have a pet or pets that might show unpredictable behavior
[Discussion] Who will win the EPL?
This weekend, the EPL takes a break from regular league play to shift focus to the FA Cup. That gives us a minute to step back and take a look at the league so far. With 23 of 38 rounds in the books, who is going to win the league? The way I see it, there are four real challengers. Leicester City Leicester are the team that shocks the world more and more each week as they inch closer to the title. They currently hold a 3 point lead in the league, sitting on 47 points. It has been a remarkable season for a team that was nearly relegated last season and didn't appear to get all that better over the summer. But they have been inspired by Riyad Mahrez, N'Golo Kante and Jamie Vardy and look to be ready to make a legitimate race toward the end. Despite everyone's reservations, Leicester are in it to win it. Arsenal At this point it seems that Arsenal are favorites. While they are 3 points behind Leicester, they are just now getting many of their injured players back (Alexis Sanchez, Francis Coquelin) and they have a very experienced roster, full of players who are used to playing in huge matches. That experience could prove invaluable for a team that is looking to win its first league title in ages and ages. The fan base wants it, and this could be the year that Arsenal break their curse. Manchester City City are another team with a great pedigree. They are full of experience and talent, and many of the players on this team were around when City last won the league a few season ago. They are no doubt hungry to repeat that success, and are level with Arsenal on points. However, they just got news that superstar newcomer Kevin de Bruyne will be out 6 weeks, which could seriously hurt their chances. He has been one of their star performers this season. Tottenham Spurs are the sleepers in this race, sitting 5 points behind leaders Leicester. But their form has been superb. They have one of the best goalkeepers in the world in Hugo Lloris and a terrific defense to boot, not to mention their talisman Harry Kane and the blossoming midfielder Dele Alli proving to be one of the most exciting players around. Many see Spurs as more pretenders than contenders, but I'm not ready to count them out. My money is on Arsenal. I think they have the squad depth required to make it happen, with the experience and quality they have on their roster. I'm not counting out any of these teams and I honestly think anyone could win, but for the moment, I'm picking Arsenal. Who do you think will win the league when it's all said and done? @InPlainSight @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @MarcusJiles @DerekGumtow @havic @yaakattackk @bnzatton @SherzTYCi @krishntejanand @addri @mishthi @andwas @NimishMathur @Sydsocquet @starli @kyleatekwana @BenjiPhilip @Eduardo14 @AshfakEjaaz @EmanueleYagoda @Bobs
Holiday Cheesecake Cookies
Cookie dough: 400 g all purpose flour 125 g confectioners’ sugar 200 g butter 1 egg pinch of salt Filling: 100 g sour cream 200 g cream cheese, room temperature 100 g sweetened condensed milk 2 tbs lemon juice strawberry jam To decorate: Red and green food colouring, and wooden skewers Instructions: 1. Let’s start preparing cookie dough. In a medium mixing-bowl, mix together all ingredientes to form a ball. 2. Divide the dough in two, and gather each portion into a slightly flattened ball. 3. Working with one ball of dough at a time, roll it out between two baking papers to a thickness of maximum 0,5 cm. 4. Using a beveled cookie cutter, cut out circles and drape one circle over each bowl cavity of pan, pressing to form smooth surface. (I used a mini cupcake pan) 5. Chill whilst preheating oven to 350º F (180 ºC) 6. Slip cookies into the oven to bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden. Remove from oven and let them cool on the pan for about 10 minutes 7. Let them cool completely on a wire rack 8. When cold, prepare cheese filling. Mix sweetened condensed milk, sour cream (or whip cream) and cream cheese on a medium bowl, until combined. Add lemon juice and mix well. 9. Place two tablespoons cheese cream on a small bowl, and another two tablespoons on a separate small bowl. Tint one of the bowls with red food colouring, and the other one with green food colouring. 10. Place 1 teaspoon strawberry jam on every cookie bowl. Fill with cheese cream. Use wooden skewers and red and green mixes to decorate 11. Keep in the fridge until set (about 4 hours if using sour cream, at least 24 hours if using whipping cream). They are better the next day. Can be stored several days on the fridge
