Happy Wednesday, Spursland! So it appears that we have signed a replacement for Rafa. This makes me happy because while I like Rafa, he can't seem to play for longer than the length of an episode of the Wire, and he is kind of crap at free kicks and he takes all of them. However, in an effort to acclimatize myself to the culture of our new player's homeland so that if we have a chance meeting I do not offend him, I spent several hours watching the Three Sheets Iceland epsiode over and over again. It is a fool proof plan.
And now the "news"
