Happy Election Day Spursland! And it is a big  election day Joe, A BIG ONE. This one is for all the marbles.  Will the voters for FIFA President  rubber stamp a corrupt dictator for another four years in light of so many of his capo-regimes being arrested charged of in the case of Brazil's last representative at the conference fleeing into the night?

Well I am not going to sit idle on these times when leadership is merited.  I can't sit down and stay silent.  And while I do not have a vote I have taken stock about how my personal #brand can best be used for good.  And after coming through the comment threads and seeing how the general public views me, and having only a mind for the good of millions and not the financial benefits to a few shadowy business "people" I have decided to formally endorse Sepp Blatter for another term.

IDK but I recently saw an interesting idea...

Shocking, a new and good idea comes from my own personal sport prophet Andi Thomas.

So Who Are These FIFA People Who Are Indicted And What Did They Maybe Do?-SB Nation Soccer

Thank God for this because before I read it I was so confused I was basically sitting on my floor, hugging my knees to my chest while muttering a certain song from the 90s.
