Left defenseman Eric Abidal needs a liver transplant. Sal's problems seem very minor now. Last year he had a tumor removed from his liver on March 17 and was back in the starting lineup on May 2. This guy is not a malingerer. His operation will be in the upcoming weeks. Also, Estanislao Basora, Barcelona's star right wing between 1946 and 1958 who scored 153 goals, died. He'd be in the Soccer Hall of Fame if there were one.
