The women’s team is off until March 15, so we’re stuck with the men until then, who haven’t always proved to be a source of joy in recent times! Anyway, let’s give it up for head of first team performance, Carlos Lalin, who is at the top of the Hoddle today.
Ramble of the Day
I had anticipated sharing a video of Son Heung-min lip-syncing a song as a method to provide a little cheer in these not-so-fun Tottenham times. I saw it on Saturday and saved it so I could easily access it when I did the Hoddle yesterday night. Like we discussed, though, we’re in the not-so-fun Tottenham times, so when I clicked on the link, I found a deleted tweet.
I grumbled, wondering what I’d do for a ramble since I didn’t want to expend much energy on this ramble; you’re not reading it, instead taking to the comments after another rough weekend. My younger sister saved the day, though — she fairly quickly found the longer version of a video that has Son being just as charming as we know him to be.
Take a moment to watch it and maybe you’ll just forget the pain for that moment, or maybe it will hurt more because Son’s injured and that really sucks! Perhaps you’ll just be wondering if he’s giving the hairstylist a tiny bit of a tough time by moving around, but she seems to be handling it fine. (They’re probably used to it.) It’s worth the risk on my end, I figured!
tl;dr: Look! It’s Son Heung-min lip-syncing a song!
