Happy Thursday Spursland! This is the calm before the storm my lovelies. The time when there is no real movement, nothing really "happening". The preparations are made and we can only wait for the eminent event to finally happen. Are you prepared? Have you scheduled the appropriate days off of work? Do you have your shopping prep lists in order? Have you reserved the keg? And by the way did you hear that THERE MIGHT BE AN EIGHTH BOOK IN SONG OF ICE AND FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!.
And now the "news"
Oh the dreaded everyone wants to play, nobody likes to sit statement. Sadly If I had to guess our boy is already gone.
And many happy returns to your sir. Please score like eight in the world cup, so we can sell you for 80 million. It's not that I don't love you, it's just that I love the idea of selling you for a ton of money like way more.
This looks scary for Portugal fans. Really scary. Killer clown type scary.
I can't wait for all the identity theft stories that will come out of this. Because I am a bad person who delights in the tribulations of others more well off than himself. What a man of principles I am.
The best part of the run up to the world cup for me is the things SB Nation Soccer head honcho Graham MacAree says in the CFC writers room. I knew England fans hated themselves but Graham has shown me a new world of self loathing and sorrow.
Dude, you are the cooooooolest.
For the record he is not really the coolest. I just want to be clear I was being sarcastic.
