Football's Final Weekend
Some weekend for me. Football’s final weekend of the league season is always a melancholy experience. Each Premier League league season is its own Cornell’s Box to me. A singular and idiosyncratic creation. When that final whistle blows, it becomes consigned to the past, and I have loved this season, as it really made me feel things. Every b...
The Liverpool Glory to Everton Agony Pipeline. One constant in an ever-shifting universe.
I write with a mix of agony and horror after a football weekend of trauma and challenge. Everton Football Club, the thing I love, is fading like Bing Bong from Inside Out and I am helpless to do anything to stop it. I have come to realize that to support the Blues is to be condemned to having an Alien bust out of your chest like Sigourney Weaver...
Hail to Spurs. Season of Unpredictable Twists and Turns twists and turns some more.
Was that the greatest weekend of Premier League football of all time or did it just feel like it? GFOP @dujour captured the reality perfectly.
Jordan Pickford's Ballon d'Or Game
I write after a weekend of heightened emotion in which I went to hell and back. And survived to tell the tale… Just. First of all. Which one of you heartless bastards did this?
Great weekend for Liverpool fans. Dark weekend for people whose names rhyme with Shmoger Bennett.
I type still standing, but barely, after one of the single worst sporting weekends of the century. My Bulls had their backs broken not once but twice by Grayson Allen. Everton. Let’s just say, I learned what does not kill me does not make me stronger.
Quadruple no longer a pipe dream: Liverpool rolls on
The battle between City and Liverpool is grueling. It may be won by the Squad who can rotate the best
About Last Night
I write to you the morning after witnessing two epic Champions League comebacks gegenpressed back into defeat. Watching City-Liverpool on Sunday, and then Real Madrid-Chelsea and Bayern-Villareal. Imagine living in a world where you don't love football.
We are not worthy of Manchester City v Liverpool
I write this newsletter in a better mood than when I dispatched the last. Everton won, and I am on the way to the tattoo parlor to get me an Anthony Gordon Tramp Stamp. More, much more on Everton’s weekend O’Glory Below. I want to begin by sending my wishes for love and strength to 19-Year-Old Gio Reyna, who limped off within 77 seconds of D...
What the US needs to emerge from Group B. Plus highs and lows of the Premier League weekend.
The 2022 World Cup is just 231 days away. Remember: B is for Baby Eagles. The United States will face England in the Robert Green Memorial Derby, Iran in a rematch of 1998’s Great Satan Clash. We must wait til June to find out if Wales, Scotland or Ukraine join them. If it is the latter, the opening foes could be named the Group of the Nationa...
USMNT On The Cusp
Gregg Berhalter is within a hair's breadth of getting his hands on the Starbucks Qatar Mug of his dreams. Last night, amidst euphoric scenes in Orlando, the US Men pulled out their best performance of qualifying, scoring early and often in a chaotic game to spank Panama 5-1. It is amazing how good our boys can be at football when they are not fo...
