That Tim Howard goal was crazy, never seen anything like that. He set the EPL distance for a goal by more than twice the amount lol.
Not True. Not by twice the amount anyway, although it could well be the longest goal to date in the history of the Premiership.
This happened in a Premiership game between Tottenham and Watford in 2007:
... and yes, there really is a player called Shi-ttu (without the - obviously :D)
Unless you meant a goal from open play, in which you would be correct. Only the 4th time a GK has scored in a Premier League match, although it has happened more in the cups and lower leagues.

Both sports are much more fun when something is on the line (elimination game/WC game or 4th round of a major or big event). Both tend to suffer in the beginning, just like most sports do (NBA is pretty terrible in the first half).
Honestly, I wouldn't have said this before last year, but after watching some of the classic Djokovic/Nadal/Federer matches last year, I think Men's tennis took a step ahead of both of them in regards to viewing interest for my taste.
Still all of em take a backseat when the Fins are on
