I was talking about that this morning with friends, if John Henry does to Liverpool FC what he did for the Red Sox Liverpool fans should be really happy.

John Henry was the AI developed by that woman from Garbage in Sarah Connor Chronicles.

I don't know if I'll be able to get that idea out of my head.

No need to. I suspect he's him.

Also if they make this transation any harder I'm going to worry cause John Henry doesn't know the value of human life and could do something inappropriate to reach his goal.

Bring in that black FBI dude to teach him right from wrong.

Everton ensured John W Henry's reign as Liverpool owner got off to the worst possible start as they emerged as comfortable winners of the Merseyside derby.

after just 8 games the table is still close-packed (except for the 2 runaways in front)
whichever team won the Merseyside Derby would have comfortably installed in mid-table, leavin the other in the bottom.

Toffees won.

And as Liverpool trooped off in misery at the final, Hodgson cut a frustrated figure as his team failed to make any sort of good impression on the new men at the helm.

They could have lost 8-0 and had 3 men sent off. Or had some rioting in the stands and been thrown out of the premiership or something.

Therefore it wasn't the worst possible start.

Captain said to big old John Henry,
That old drill keeps a-coming around.
Take that steam drill out and start it on that job
Let it whop, let it whop that steel on down
Let it whop, let it whop that steel on down.


In folklore, John Henry beat the machine, but the effort killed him. Great name for a cyborg, and I used to wonder if the name was supposed to be foreshadowing something that would happen later in the series.

A shame it got cancelled just as it got interesting.

They should have got rid of all the annoying teenager stuff. There were too many John Connor's hormone driven episodes imho.

John Connor fights the yoke of leadership and destiny, part seven. Also, the hot robot girl continues to make him feel funny.

So unrealistic. Once he found out she was a fully equipped sex robot who'd do whatever he said there's no way he'd not have shagged her. He was a teenage boy.

In the last few days the Red Sox signed Carl Crawford (seven-year, $142 million deal) and Adrian Gonzalez (still to be finalized but supposedly something around a seven-year, $160 million deal).

Liverpool fans rejoice.
