Happy Friday, Spursland! And happy long fall weekend to all you students out there in commentariatland. I hope you all enjoy the trip home, and mom doing your laundry for you again, you lazy entitled poop stains. But not really.
As for our little outing in Greece, well, I can't say I am surprised that team faded late considering how many players are in our usual starting XI. But let's not be too upset over being second in our group after two games in a European competition. That is like being pissed that Scarlett Johansen/Johnny Depp wouldn't give you their number, but then Alison Brie/Jon Hamm walks right up and asks you out. That analogy brought to you by Me Pretending to be Chicken, aka #thechickening
I don't think anyone in the press is writing the team off. I think they are more writing them on...to bad sports soap opera treatments, but instead of shopping them directly to television networks they are just printing them as facts in newspapers.
...and it is a tour de force of incoherence. I had no idea so much confusion could be packed into such a small word count.
Okay, I see what happened here -- just a bit of a language barrier. (Did you know he is foreign? I know right?) What he obviously meant was "the
Europa League is important".
Cartilage Free Reader, SB Nation DC correspondent, and guy I have twice drunkenly stumbled up to in a bar Brendan Darr is not taking this news well. So be nice little darlings and shoot him a tweet politely asking him to confirm there are no lacerations on his wrists.
The answer is YES you idiotic baseball nerds. Take a break from your saber metrics and realize that this is the first Triple Crown since The Six Day War. If you don't think this is special enough then you baseball nerds (aka people who watch baseball games that their team of support aren't involved in) are just as bad as the people described here. Now sit their in the corner and think about what you have done! (Editor's note: Mike Trout should be the MVP. Miggy's Triple Crown is amazing, but Trout also did things that have never been done before. Also, he was better this year.)
um...shit just got real.
I'll say it. Better than Rooney's.
