It’s pretty unlikely that a pack of wild zebras would ever be on the predatory prowl, but that’s exactly what it looked like when four Toffee defenders chaotically descended on Theo Walcott last week.  Who knew that Walcott’s favorite candy bar was Heath as he ripped through that pathetic display of rubbish that Newcastle calls defense. Always quick to run, as he’s one of the fastest players in the Prem, Walcott impressively exposed each inept Newcastle zebra for the non-hunting (and relegation closing) creature they have so disspointingly turned out to be. Don’t know why visions of the Lion King seem to be dancing through my head like sugar plum fairies on Christmas Eve, but the only other movie reference I could think of to compare Theo’s goal heroics to was 2 Fast 2 Furious… Damn, that’s better, isn’t it?  Anyway, as the cigar and whiskey throated ESPN stalwart Chris Berman would say to each and every single Newcastle defender involved in the play: “WHOOOOOPS.” And Whoops indeed. Whoops to them, and Whoops to Arsene Wenger if he can’t get a deal done with Theo Walcott.
