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.
Shit, exactly. I’m a lifelong Clippers fan too, (I think I like hating myself) and the delight of even making the playoffs those couple of years was how I imagine fans of other teams feel about championships.
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…
Woah, a guy the Habs misused going on to success elsewhere? Never heard that before.
Ichiro was 35 for 117 with 3 HR and 10 RBI against Bartolo Colon
Keep ‘em coming, man. Loving it.
+1 visit to Canada later if they manage to, though.
This was cool. Thanks.
I started laughing in the second paragraph and still haven’t stopped. This was exactly what I needed today. Thank you.
Moroccans wear a wide variety of hats depending on the season and their region of the country. Some of them even wear fezes! Unsurprisingly, fezes are more popular in Fez and its rural environs, and with older people.
That would also give me naches.
Kol HaOlam Kulo as interpreted by Breslovers and danced by a mixed pair would be mindblowingly awesome.
That’s a very fair point right there.
Everyone on both these teams would probably be required by club officials to kneel for the Marcha Real and then stand and belt out Els Segadors (the anthem of Catalonia whose chorus basically just repeats instructions to give the Castilians a “good whack with your sickle”) if they even played any songs before the…
