Happy Thursday, Spursland! Yesterday was the first day of summer, and summer is the worst. It is exactly like winter in that it seems to last forever, except there isn't anything I can wear outside that makes me feel comfortable (hello fuzzy sweaters). Nothing ever happens in the news, be it sports, foreign affairs or domestic politics either. And how long until Game of Thrones season 2 is out on iTunes. Summer can take its oppressive heat and boring personalty and walk off a cliff. Go winter.
And now the "news"
Look who is sort of keen to hang around now that Harry is gone! It is going to be really fun to see the sort of things that other players that Harry decided one day were crap say now. Somebody get a mic in front of Gio ASAP.

What's happening around SB Nation after the jump
SHOCKING UPDATE: it isn't a Messi goal.
Watch the entire video to get an idea of just how bad this poor, poor girl wants to get the hell out of there. She makes it through the shot in like 6.2 seconds. I wouldn't be surprised if this was a coordinated attack by the Dutch, it is just to perfect.
This week the rankings are Radiohead themed. I am so bitter that "Anyone Can Play Guitar" doesn't make an appearance.
