Ramble of the Day

Let’s keep things light and fun on this Thursday, a rare day where we collectively celebrate the fact that Tottenham actually won yesterday. Anyway, a prompt:

Some answers, in the order of when I thought of them:

  • Leandro André
  • Leandro Harry (aka Leandro ‘Arry)
  • João André
  • Jack Mauricio
  • Paulo Mauricio
  • Jadon Mauricio
  • Eden Harry (aka Eden ‘Arry)

We could also play the game of Guess Which Country This Fictional Player Might Be From! - some of those seem easier to figure out than others.

tl;dr: This isn’t a long ramble, figure it out yourself.
