The Roma forward says he will watch the Manchester Derby this Sunday and will be rooting for his former teammatesBosnian attacker Edin Dzeko played for Manchester City from 2011 to 2015 in the English Premier League.He was loaned to Italian Lega Serie A club Roma in 2015 and was sold to the Italians in 2016.And even after being years apart from the Citizens, he remembers them fondly.“For the fans, beating QPR to win the title is probably the best game ever, but beating United 6-1 is probably the best we ever played and wouldn’t be far behind,” recalled Dzeko according to the team’s official website.Serie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“It’s one of the best performances in City’s history and I’m just glad I was part of it all.”“To get two in the space of a few minutes was special – the first was with my knee, but the second was thanks to a pass from another world from the Magician, David Silva,” he added.“Sometimes I watch the game again to relive it and it always brings a huge smile to my face.”“City will start as favorites, but derby games are strange and don’t always go to form,” he commented.“I’m not there anymore, but City is still my club.”
Temujin Horsey had two pigs in Saturday’s 4-H livestock auction at the Alaska State Fair: Photo: Liz O’Connell/Frontier Scientists.Looking to buy a 50-pound turkey, or a 300-pound pig? The 4-H Junior Livestock Auction is just the place to find one. The bidding was lively on Saturday at the Alaska State Fair in Palmer.Download AudioThe sound of a live auction filled the Farm Exhibits Barn at the Alaska State Fair. Bidding was frenzied for the turkeys, especially for an all white 50-pounder. More than 90 youngsters participated in the Junior Market Livestock Auction this year as sellers of animals that they had raised themselves. The 4H program enables young people interested in agriculture to gain experience in both raising a quality animal, and in selling it for a fair market price.Over in the corrals, Kyle Miley is patiently waiting with his pig, Jerry. Jerry, all 252 pounds of him, is lying on his stomach, seemingly oblivious to the hubbub around him. Miley’s got a purple ribbon pinned to his belt.“Well, that was for showmanship, and showmanship is based off of how you show the animal. So, that was for showmanship, a participation award, and for confirmation is the two blue ribbons. And confirmation is about the pig, how the pig looks. So he did better than I did.”Jerry’s two blue ribbons were gained at livestock shows earlier in the fair. Miley says, Jerry is most likely headed to the slaughterhouse, depending on the winning bid.“Maybe Three Bears, it could be Alaska Mill and Feed. It could be a company that just wants to buy meat and sell it. ”4 H kids, some as young as nine, raise goats, lambs, turkeys, chickens, rabbits and other animals for the program. When the animals are auctioned off, a small portion of the proceeds goes to support the program, but most of the cash goes back to the youngster who raised the animal for sale. Many of the participants borrowed money to buy and raise the animal, and they will pay back the loan with what they earn at the auction.Temujin Horsey and Jolt at the Alaska State Fair.

One, Crazy Train, is living up to her name, while the other one snoozes peacefully at Horsey’s feet..“This one I am going to sell today. He is an exotic breed, which means that you breed them so many different ways from so many different things that they are a new color and everything. ”The relaxed pig, contradictorily named Jolt., has got his share of championship ribbons. Horsey has raised the pig from birth. Now it weighs over 300 pounds. I ask, will it be hard to let him go?“Yes, yes it is. I’ve been doing this, this is my fifth year now. It is a little easier than normal, but yes, it is hard.”Meanwhile, the auctioneer’s chant continues to elicit squeals and shouts from the crowd.But it will be a while yet before the pigs are up for bid, and Jolt and Jerry are taking it easy.
