Happy Tuesday, Hoddlers! Pardeep’s out today so yours truly is back with another Song of the Day Hoddle.
How about some old-school hip-hop to get the blood going today? I’m not really a hip-hop or rap guy, but I know what I like and this one — man, I really like it. Here’s A Tribe Called Quest, with their classic “Can I Kick It?” from the 1989 album People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm. This track features what I consider to be one of the all-time great samples in the opening bass line from Lou Reed’s “Walk on the Wild Side.” I dare you to listen to this and not nod your head in time with the beat.
Here’s today’s news.

This article is from a while ago (and maybe Pardeep already shared it) but I really enjoyed this article from All for XI on the dangers of “toxic positivity” with regards to coverage of Women’s soccer.
