Here’s a brief message before I get started:
We are aware of the video of Dele Alli that leaked on social media last night during the Super Bowl. Please do not post or link to any copies of this video, or you will be permanently banned from Cartilage Free Captain. No exceptions.
Now, for the ramble.
Ramble of the Day
Yesterday, a few hours after Tottenham’s match against Liverpool, I watched some highlights of the match against Manchester United match. (Good match, right?) Anyway, after watching Phil Jones’ stellar goal, I remembered (or was forced into remembering) that Jones has a tattoo sleeve.
It is a bad tattoo sleeve.
It just looks so ... odd on his arm. He is probably not the right person for it. Plus, it is only on the front of his arm.
The arms look better from behind, obviously, but knowing that makes the tattoo sleeve worse. Maybe they’re all like that? I am no expert in tattoo sleeves, after all. I just know they’re all better than Lionel Messi’s leg tattoo sleeve.
(I just remembered Roman Pavlyuchenko’s tattoo sleeve. His was a weird combination of person and sleeve, also.)
Additionally, congratulations to Eric Dier on winning the Super Bowl.
Let’s get to those links.
