Good Tuesday morning friends.  If you live in London it is apparently free TV Tuesday if the last few days have been any indication. So do yourself a favor and stay the hell inside. You can go out for tacos tomorrow. And yes I am the kind of guy who would consider braving a riot for tacos. Not an English riot though, just an average American one. English rioting is on another level.

Ruiz would have cost a ton, and Spurs aren't exactly free spenders. There is a limited amount of money to be spent, it should be spent on positions we don't have several world class players already. Editor's note: Ruiz is a striker, what are you on about?

Real Madrid Sign 7 Year Old Argentinian-SB Nation Soccer

I'm not sure this is a wise move for a team that is hundreds of millions of euros in debt. And yes that sentence was just a way for me to bring up how much Real Madrid are in debt.

Good...GOOOOOOD. He is the definition of too good for that team.
