Since it was the only recommendation I could track on Getty Images, Glenn Hoddle wins the Hoddle lead art sweepstakes. Again, drop your suggestions at the bottom and the choice with the most recs wins. (I have no plan yet for what happens if no one makes a suggestion.)
Ramble of the Day
Like my collection of reactionary images from sports and social media, I have a few screenshots on my desktop that I think are funny, but never got around to sharing. Good thing I have this space to just share whatever the hell I want!
First is a screenshot that’s years old and comes from a transcript of my interviews with NBC Sports’ Rebecca Lowe, Robbie Earle, Kyle Martino, and Robbie Mustoe. (If you want to read the piece that came out of that, it’s here.) It was Mustoe talking about net spend, and the red zig-zagged line popped right away, which I thought was hilarious. Google docs has since changed its mind — I went to check the document to get a larger picture and discovered that, but screenshots last forever!
This one’s about a year old, and came up on my search for hotels in Paris last year. I don’t remember which hotel it was, but more importantly...I don’t know what the listing meant by “Other Russian.”
Finally, I find this to be funny and sad. Imagine being Malcom, a footballer that achieved fame and a contract with FC Barcelona at one point, and still Google will not recognize your name as a perfectly normal search query. It must suck.
tl;dr: Check out some random screenshots I have saved on my computer desktop!
