Happy Thursday Spursland! Well folks, the international break doldrums have hit. Yes, we will talk about Eriksen and Yedlin playing yesterday but it's mostly dead out there. So I had planned today being this big long plan i have for the future of MLS. But that is unimportant right now, instead we need an intense discussion of something much more timely.
Skipdork thinks the opening theme from Firefly is terrible. AND HE CAN ONLY BACK UP HIS ARGUMENT WITH "it's a show about space outlaws, not Touched by an Angel" which would make sense if the space outlaws weren't the good guys, a lovable gang of misfits from here, there, and back again brought together with unlikely bonds of friendship forged by their struggles against an oppressive regime. So it makes sense that their music doesn't remind you of Stone Cold Steve Austin's walk out music.
And incidentally the song strongly establishes the themes of the show and is stand alone pretty good. Further proof that Skipjack is bad at things.
And now the "news"
