Hi, all!

There’s a new manager at Tottenham, but if you want to send the last one off through music, there’s a Spotify playlist for you to contribute to.

Ramble of the Day

So many things have already happened this week, and we’ve got a few more days for some other things to happen. I think I always anticipated that the European Super League would cause some drama, but I genuinely expected it to play out for a long time. I really could not have predicted the overwhelming and constant rush of news items over the last couple of days, yesterday especially.

There is so much humor in the way the Super League came in and the way it exited. In the span of two days, people went from questioning whether or not UEFA had any leverage to seeing just how fragile the conviction to carry off this specific plan was. It is nice to watch something that upset so many people fall apart, piece by piece for everyone to see. It was deserved for multiple reasons; after all, if people are passionately sharing a video of James Corden bashing you, you have lost the battle.

I must admit, though, that I need to unwind. It has been a long few days, and I don’t think the next few are going to provide too much rest. How could they? The idea of a Super League impacted many, many people, and it has set off quite the chain reaction. At the very least, I laughed out loud multiple times over the last few days so I can’t say I didn’t enjoy it despite my exhaustion.

tl;dr: The Super League collapsing was funny, but I’m tired now.
