Luis Suarez is ridiculous. →
Sit back and feast your eyes on his brilliant run to set up Kuyt for the first goal in Sunday’s match.
We won! But wow, it was a crazy match. RvP’s second yellow and subsequent sending off was absolutely ridiculous. (Although, to be fair, his first yellow was a stupid choice and his fault.) Cesc was a non-entity. Holy shit, our CBs were making me anxious after that first goal. (Pique: no more cards, please. Puyol: I PRAY NIGHTLY FOR YOUR RETURN.) Arsenal’s keeper had a great match for...
god damn it Barcelona 1-1 Arsenal

field hockey hates me and I hate my life
HOW MANY BACKS ARE WE GOING TO LOSE TO INJURY? Just. Ugh.
Watching the match in our hotel lobby and getting weird looks every time I grimace or get excited. Come on you Reds!

He took a pay cut to stay with Madrid (something I can respect about any player, no matter their club), rarely starts but still puts his heart and soul into playing, plays the guitar, has studied psychology, loves to read….

Today has just been…I don’t even know. We had a two hour delay this morning for school, thanks to the gigantic thunderstorm that blew through early this morning. So classes were shorter, which was lovely. And there are about 20 French exchange students here, and I keep hearing French in the hallways and classrooms. Nikita is hosting one of them, and she’s lovely. So class was all...

And our defensive woes continue. The trouble all along, aside from Hodgson’s batshit insane tactics in the first half of the season, has been our central defense, I think. If we break it down: Carra: solid defender when he is on form, but aging. The same old tackle-and-hoof routine. Agger: again, solid in the center, but he’s proven rather fragile this season. How many matches has...
