Terrible taste Tuesday in the place to be.

Happy Tuesday, Spursland!

We live in a weird world, don't we? Awful things happen, we get self absorbed, we rant, we rave, yet nothing really ever seems to change. This may seem a strange diversion from "Happy Tuesday, Spursland", but it's not. Those words, that intro, was none other than our Salmon Chase's good morning to all of you for quite some time, and he, if nothing else, tried to make sure we always laughed, no matter the circumstances. He often went out of his way to laugh in spite of his circumstances. I always admired that.

So it's not that I don't feel the pain of these events; I do. I just don't find guilt, sadness, or self importance to be thoughts worthy of indulgence. We need to laugh, and what better subject than human absurdity. We're Tottenham after all.

And in that vain I present a clipshow of Bryan A.'s, a man with terrible taste, favorite keeper.

And now for the "news":

France v England is for the victims says Hugo| Express

What a surreal experience this has to be for les Bleus. Let's hope it's a cracking game so everyone can just enjoy football for a couple hours.

Pato rumor pops up again, refuses to be beat down| Metro

Unless he is a second striker, I don't like this. And Spurs don't buy strikers so joke is on you if your hopes are up. Sucker.

Danny Murphy, are you trying to make Eric Dier angry, you wouldn't like him when he's angry| Express

Who should they play, Danny? Seriously, that's an actual question. If this is a critique of England's talent cultivation, fine, but what does it really have to do with a pair of midfielders who are helping Spurs play some of the best stuff in the Premier League at the moment?

Ronda Rousey lost and people are trying to make sense of it| MMA Fighting

I don't really care for MMA. I've never seen her fight and probably never will aside from a clip here or there. That being said, she is a fun personality and I like her; but the problem with fighters is that they are made of human stuff.

And humans are almost uniformly destined to fail at some point.

So let's allow her to pick herself off the canvas, and to do it with a little dignity. We may find that what comes back is even greater.
