Animals and links.

Swansea City v Tottenham Hotspur - The Emirates FA Cup Quarter Final

Hey, folks!

I have been getting Louis Vuitton ads all over my Twitter timeline after chatting (and Googling) about Louis Vuitton bags last week, but let’s talk about animals instead.

Ramble of the Day

This one is going to be a fairly simple, but hopefully enjoyable, ramble to start off the week. Perhaps some of you have already heard of the twitter account Footballers with animals, but in case you have not, they post pictures of footballers with animals. (Tough one to figure out, I know.) Now, I will proceed to just embed tweets of footballers with animals, and possibly add some of my commentary.

First, who would have thought that I would post about Giovani dos Santos in two consecutive rambles? Second, why is he bored with this dog? This dog is adorable and looks like good company.

Alberto Moreno looks like he is about to fall off that hoverboard, which makes me laugh and then makes me feel bad because I laughed.

Did the dog learn how to play chess? Is the dog good at playing chess? Does Jordan Morris let the dog win at chess, or is he very competitive? Is Jordan Morris even a good chess teacher? I have so many questions.

(Additionally, this may be the dog that convinced Morris to play for the Seattle Sounders instead of Werder Bremen, according to Jermaine Jones.)

Cows do not appear often on this twitter account, so I figured I would share this picture of a cow with some footballers.

This is clearly the best way to celebrate winning a trophy. (Also, sorry about mostly posting about dogs.)

How? Why? What?

Again: Why?

I am not sure if I like the sunglasses more on the tortoise or not.

And finally, a football playing animal.

Links of the Day

Darron Gibson has been suspended by Sunderland after getting arrested for driving while drunk.

Michy Batshuayi said he has received further racist abuse from Atalanta fans, this time on social media following Borussia Dortmund’s exit from the Europa League on Thursday.

Today’s longer read: Antje Windmann interviews Per Mertesacker about the sacrifices he’s made during his 15 year career for Der Spiegel
(I know it is Per Mertesacker, but I would not recommend it if I did not think it was worth a read, and, for what it is worth, he does not talk about Arsenal a lot.)
