Hi, all!

Yesterday was ... not fun.

Ramble of the Day

I come with a tiny distraction as you scroll to the bottom to join your fellow Hoddlers in rightfully complaining about your team. Unintentionally, I will begin with the least visible silver lining from yesterday: at least Tottenham did not record the most embarrassing result from yesterday’s European matches. That distinct honor fully belongs to Roma, who lost 6-1 to Norway’s Bodø/Glimt yesterday, a match that marked the first time a José Mourinho side conceded six goals in a game.

It’s not the only record Bodø/Glimt have set in recent years, though. In 2016, the club celebrated its 100 year anniversary by setting the Guinness world record for largest sushi mosaic.

I have no idea if it was any good, but thinking about it made me crave sushi anyway. (Luckily, I had some the other day so I satisfied that craving in advance.)

tl;dr: Here’s a picture of the world’s largest sushi mosaic at a Bodø/Glimt match in 2016.
