Hi, all!

I have to say that I’m starting to get used to not having a manager.

Ramble of the Day

Credit to the Hoddler who knew what today’s Hoddle topic would be. Granted, this person did not know I was in a time crunch while assembling today’s Hoddle so an easy topic would have to do, but clearly this person knew this is good enough to spotlight regardless. It’s Son Heung-min in Ralph Lauren!

The details, if you wanted them: Son is one of a few athletes part of Ralph Lauren’s campaign celebrating its partnership with Wimbledon; pictured with Son is surfer Lucy Campbell, while rugby player Maro Itoje and ballet dancer Francesca Hayward (who also starred in the film adaptation of Cats). Ralph Lauren also used the occasion to announce a partnership with G2 Esports, for what it’s worth.

I’ve mentioned before how athletes can make for decent models, and we all know Son’s got a model’s ability. There’s not much more to say, other than the fact that these pictures are great. Let’s call it a lone bright spot when it comes to people and things associated with Tottenham right now.

tl;dr: Let’s just look at some pictures of Son Heung-min modeling for Ralph Lauren.
