I listed to this when it streamed live yesterday, and it is pretty epic.

Thanks, +NPR Music and +St Paul and the Broken Bones -- really looking forward to the November 1 gig in Chicago!

Need I say more 'Wilco live and acoustic' ?

Rhiannon Giddens’ performance of “Lost on the River” from her upcoming episode of Infinity Hall Live will give you chills.

There is an older precedent by Cruyff in the 1970s, and Pires and Henry once tried to pull it off but failed.  This one is just sweet as are the other five (!!) goals they put past poor Celtic Vigo.
​If that ridiculous penalty wasn't enough to prove to you that this is the greatest team ever to walk the earth, then here's the other 5 goals they put past...
