Happy Monday, Spursland! We're just two days away from Olympic competition kicking off, boys and girls! Oh, you will have to wait a few more days for the games to officially open or to see Ryan Lochte shirtless, but at least the football starts soon!

And now the "news"

Modric Fined Two Weeks Wages For Skiping US Tour- SB Nation Soccer

I think it would be very cheeky if Adebayor walked up, showed Luka his Man City contract and then paid this fine with pocket change.

Dear Mr. Levy Lays Out The Modric Saga 2012 Transfer Timeline And Predicts The Future- Dear Mr Levy

I personally have never met Dan Levy. It is rather hard during London summers as the days are long and he only comes out at night. He also tends to avoid garlic. He is a very strange man, but I like to imagine him as somewhat like Vito Corleone. So now with Luka Modric acting like a petulant child who doesn't know who the boss is, I can only imagine that within the next few days that Luka will be re-enacting this scene whether he likes it or not.

What's happening around SB Nation after the jump

Introducing The Steve Spurrier Dance- SB Nation

Okay what is a better GIF, that one or this one?

Antonio Cassano Fined 15K For Homophobic Comments- SB Nation Soccer

It's okay, he will more than make up for that with his inevitable Chik-Fil-A sponsorship.

VIDEO: The USWNT Answers The Question Of Who Is Soccer's Most Ridiculous Team- SB Nation Soccer

I think there is an argument to be made that the USWNT is even more ridiculous than you would think after watching this video the first time. Just think about how much fun they seemed to be having during filming while listening to the fucking song over and over and over. It baffles me. I would have gone insane. We, as a nation, seem to be cursed by this song. It never seems to go away. Just when you think the horror is over someone whips this pile of pop culture cancer out again. "Oh look it's summer TIME FOR MY FAVORITE MILEY SONG LOL LOL". it is enough to make you want to punch complete strangers when this song comes on, especially when they freak out over it being played. I mean I would never do that, but if someone did I would understand.
