This week started off with a series of gifs aimed at the five stages of grief. The last one was a gif of Will Ferrell, as Ron Burgundy, accepting an award, full of bravado despite any inherent ridiculousness. May your week have allowed you to come to such a place, as we realize that the very thing so many of us have pined for these last six years, Champions League football, is on its way back to our lives.
Our football grief is only that things are not as good as we wanted, or had let ourselves believe. It's not because things are actually bad, and that's quite the difference.
Happy Friday everyone.
