I mostly meant that they’re under-resourced, but it’s true that the riskier work, too, is amazing!
It’s amazing that even while being Univisioned y’all can produce incredible work like this. Thank you.
That was a really good analogy, friend.

I’m a liberal youth soccer referee in South Carolina, I run into a couple of these guys every year, but this is on the wilder end for sure. Seems like the kind of coach who checks the first two boxes of ask-tell-dismiss in the first ten minutes of the U-10 game.
Just glad you spelled y’all correctly.
I genuinely looked up whether Kluwe had kicked any field goals in his career, but it looks like he didn’t!
Former UChicago student who spent way too much time and money at Staropolska after refereeing kids soccer on the Northside, but somehow I think that’s probably worse for me tbh.
Okocim on draft with a splash of cherry syrup in it is a shockingly OK way to drink the day and evening away in a Polish bar on the Northside of Chicago.
That is an all-time “we just pulled a hell of a fast one” celebration.
Next time go with Farsi instead of Arabic.
Every time you do a Gaelic Games thing it’s always great, delicate and appropriate and giving good context for whatever’s going on. Thanks (from an American O’Connell) for doing that again.
That’s also a really unfair slight on Colonel Sanders, who was a strange dude and certainly a man of his times, (like the time he beat up his own client in court as an attorney, or the time he shot a competitor over advertising space) but one who absolutely *loved* to fuck with racists.

As a Dodger fan, enjoying this regular-season immunity is how I resign myself to playoff suffering.
It bounced before it got to the striker, very Bills-like.
Alireza Beiranvand, the probable starter in goal for Iran, ran away from a nomadic shepherding family in the vast unimaginably-poor rural part of the west of Iran to Tehran, kept himself in a club team while sleeping on the streets when he was a car washer or in the laundromat or pizza place he worked in to support…
Mo Salah was four when El Hadary got his first Egypt cap, which is amazing! Also, El Hadary has played for both Al-Ahly and Zamalek, the two big Egyptian clubs, but not Masry, the traditional third wheel.
I unironically love Giri’s writing, and I’m sure being a Clipper fan since the Olowokandi era and thus sympathizing with his Knicks feelings is a solid part of that.
Nothing against you, Dan, but can we please have 1000 words from Giri on whether the cat will be able to keep up with the secondary and tertiary contenders on the tour as the ravages of age and feline psychological issues (“I always want to get into the service box, there are four of them, though, and I can never…
