Happy Monday Spursland! What a game that was this weekend. It had everything we could possibly ask for. It had lackadaisical play made worse by a complete lack of movement off the ball. It had injuries to key players. And back passes, boy did it! It was the definition of how you would try to lose a game if your team is the shockingly more talented side. It was by the grace of a Gareth Bale Ninja kicking hustle play and an own goal that we made it through.
And now the "news"

Nope! Ade Refuses To Be Forced Out of 100k At Spurs-Mirror
Clinging to his last ever shot at making the biggest of big time football money like a toddler that has constricted themselves around your shins even as you continue to soldier on across the living room. How does one handle this situation if you are Dan Levy? "Ade you need to unwrap yourself from Uncle Danny's legs, you are being disrespectful. Also you aren't a good player anymore, now pack your stuff so I can sell you off to Turkey."

The Pros React To Jones Vs Sonnen-MMA Fighting
It is fun that pro fighters progressed from the end of that fight the same way everyone else did. First, early stoppage. Second, well it was always gonna happen. Third, HOLY GOD LOOK AT HIS TOE. Nothing beats Joe Rogan's reaction, except maybe Jones' ultra cool "whatevs bro" reaction.
PS: Congrats to Gareth on the Double victory for Player of The year. For those who don't know the worst kept secret around the Cartilage Free Captain floor of the SB Nation building is that Gareth is a long time lurker in the comments. Way to go buddy.
