Hello, Hoddlers!

At the top today is midfielder Anna Filbey. She’s been with the club since 2018 after beginning her career at ... Arsenal, and has been capped by Wales.

Ramble of the Day

There’s no need for me to go into the many gifts of the internet, nor the power of an image. It’s all self-explanatory enough that I can go straight to my confession: I have a ton of images I find significant saved on my computer. In practice, I’m essentially saving them for a moment in the future when it becomes appropriate. Let’s start with a screenshot from this video currently saved on my desktop.

This is an easy share after Son Heung-min scores goals, but is also a general truth, but is also one of many of this variety. This folder, titled “Images of Importance” on my computer, has many pictures to use in case of good news — and bad news! — for Spurs. If we’re talking the second, there’s always this picture of Moussa Sissoko staring at his phone; the man does not seem pleased.

Then there are th more random type, like the time Ben Davies really enjoyed a preseason trip to the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.

I also have a number of pictures that aren’t from football-related activities, like the following image. You never do know when you need a picture of an angry Andy Murray, after all.

You also never know when you need Vanderpump Rules’s Scheana to tell you when it’s all happening. (I used this one a lot each time a report arrived saying Giovani Lo Celso’s transfer to Spurs was getting closer.)

These and dozens more are all there, tucked away in a nice folder, waiting to express certain emotions. The situation will come — these are mostly images that would only follow pretty believable circumstances (minus Davies’s musing on country music). I love each and every one of them, as they allow me to add even a tiny bit of humor to any situation of my choosing.

tl;dr: I have a ton of pictures saved on my computer, and I find them all relatively funny.
