Good morning, bet you I am up before this posts! I usually have no problem when my spawn wakes up at an ungodly hour but when he is up before Italia football that is an issue. IT IS 8 HOURS AHEAD!!!! There are no matches today so I pray the wee man sleeps until 5:30 am my time. About Italy, no fans allowed.  This will be interesting in the betting world because the home team advantage is muted sans crazy people. Do you think they will do this in North America? The Ice Niners were chastised for playing the other night. Over here it seems that the show must go on and the owners pockets must get fatter.

30 Helens agree that you should wash your hands regularly.

What do we have this morning?

In our early tilt Liverpool v The Neneh Cherries. This will be a paddlin. Liverpool has stubbed its toe lately and may be looking ahead to their Champions League matchup with Athletico.

The notable game during the Premiership’s heavy flow window is a North London derby. West Ham visits Arsenal. Fronk’s Hammers realllly need the points and would hope to nick at least one on this visit. I don’t like West Ham as I feel they sold their soul by leaving Upton Park. Howevah they belong in the top flight as they are a “big club”.

The late game is Burnley hosting Spurs. I’ve said before that teams get the Burnley flu as it’s usually cold, dingy, has a small pitch where the fans are on top of you. Diva players hate playing there and with Spurs injured and faltering Jose will want to fire up his troops.

SInce I all know you care, Mighty Whitey visits somewhere called Bristol City. The London Jaguras are in 3rd so not in the automatic promotion spots and have been chasing Leeds Utd and West Brom. I hope all 3 of these teams will get promoted as Leeds should really be in the prem and probably still would be if not for those damn kids. (financial issues) West Brom is managed by Bilic who is another swarthy Slav and I always have had an affinity for their style of play.

It is coming along. Riverside Stand, Craven Cottage, Fulham.

Lets get to some SexiMexi futbol. Our own BallsofSteelandFury has gotten me addicted to the LigaMx. It may have been the Puebla jersey he sent me or perhaps the fact that it is fucking unpredictable and really fun!!! Things that I’ve caught on to are that home field advantage means a shit tonne and never count the home team out. Monterrey are frauds and even though they won last season starting in the playoffs 8 hole, they’re still frauds and I have won a bunch of money knowing this. They play another fraudulent team in San Luis who are owned by Athletico Madrid. Can’t trust ’em either. Queretaro is also truly unpredictable, they zig when you think they will zag. Hands off betting on these clowns.

In Germany Munchies Glad to be Back plays Dortmund, that is some hot 3rd vs 4th action right there. Haaland is a beast and all he does is score goals.

The Bundesliga will be a race right to the finish with 5 clubs in the mix. Whenever Dortmund plays it gives me the excuse to post this!

So the question of the day is how do you think sports will be played this summer? In front of no fans? Business as usual in North America as we have seen Italy take measures? Cancelled (Olympics)?

In closing another skit from Burnistoun.

SillyCuse and Miami is just hilariously bad. And I dunno whether NC State is better served by 5 or 6 seed, so who does I cheer for?

scotchnaut

What a garbage game. Only at least two more years of Nose Picker though.

Hey we want to day trip Death Valley next weekend. I see there are a lot of ‘things’ there (like old mines, old shacks, old rocks, old dirt) but, aside from the blooms, everything seems kind of arbitrary/bad. You folks have any idea on what sights to visit?

yeah right

Despite living in California for most of my life I’ve never been. I was basically less than 80 miles as the crow flies when I lived in Ridgecrest.

ballsofsteelandfury

Check slack

scotchnaut

I don’t like the guy, but Stephen A. Smith has to hold the #1 spot in the ShoutTainment industry.

Gratliff

The only redeeming quality is the endless amounts of shit he talks on Dallas

Gratliff

Worth pointing out that this is an extremely redeeming quality

Always nice to see that paedo-looking Scott Drew eat shit. Watched on ESPN+ and enjoyed it. That were proper Huggy Bear defensing

yeah right

Apparently our drooling, knuckle dragging idiot public has started a panic run on bottled water and toilet paper.

TOILET PAPER!

You pinheads know the virus attacks the respiratory system yes?
It does not attack the asshole!

Jesus shot putting Christ.

The Right Reverend Electric Mayhem

On the one hand, yes.

On the other hand, have you ever regretted having too much toilet paper?

King Hippo

Kenfucky, saved by VAR

scotchnaut

Shout out to Steve Harvey. He’s one of the least funny individuals I’m aware of in the entertainment industry. You fooled everyone. Well done!

yeah right

Couldn’t agree more.

BC Dick

I like Steve. Bullet head. His brand works. But it isn’t overly good. No.

Speaking of China, Michigan is starting to get the international travel types (Italy, China, Thailand under a pseudonym) showing up at hospitals and starting to get tested for the corona virus, so that’s fun.

King Hippo

Looks like some cousins will get lucky tonite!!

Senor Weaselo

Woo, Johnnies finish not-last!
/Now to get dunked on by Patrick Chewing and Georgetown in the Big East tourney!

Brocky

Don’t worry Indiana, you weren’t going to make it past the first round anyways

scotchnaut

Is disappointed that Wisconsin’s Micah Potter didn’t get a back Gryffindor layup the entire game

-Current status

BC Dick

You’re not watching wild and thrilling Brier action today? Then you’re missing out, brother (in law).
I’m off to my wine and whisky bonspiel today. Lunch, dinner, four tastings and some curling thrown in for good measure.
I’ll be back later with some incoherent blatherings.

Dunstan

I wish I could, but I don’t think anybody is carrying it here. Even TSN’s web site won’t show live coverage.

At least NBC Sports picks up the world championships

BC Dick

A shame but not surprising. 7 of the top 15 curling teams are in the championship round of the Brier. Worlds will be very good. Women and men. The ladies play a more aggressive game so don’t miss them. Also they’re hot and they’re all screamers.

King Hippo

A screamer is nice, buy why they always gotta shout “Is that ALL?”

BC Dick

If you don’t hit the button they’re disappointed

scotchnaut

Speaking of home cooking, Indy is getting all the calls but Wiscy has somehow battled back. Tight game.

scotchnaut

/son smells chili gently bubbling away

“Hey, when is lunch going to be ready?”

“Oh, about four hours from now.”

“What? C’mon!”

/apparently this is the very first time I’ve made chili

Senor Weaselo

That hobo meat just falls off the bone!

scotchnaut

My secret ingredient? Long pig.

BC Dick

Is that more horn talk?

scotchnaut

Wiscy/Indy getting a bit feisty. You hate to see white-on-white violence.

Horatio Cornblower

Clearly you don’t have a “Filene’s Basement Wedding Gown Sale” fetish.

scotchnaut

Jimmy “Multiple Lesbians” Dykes doing the color commentary for Aubie/Vols.

scotchnaut

Subway doing a rap ad to feature their ‘wrap’ offerings because everyone is stupid.

King Hippo

Name a fast food chain with MOAR street cred than Subway u can’t!!!!

scotchnaut

The Wolfies gonna make it into the tourney? Some guy has them as last 4 in.

theeWeeBabySeamus

They need one win in the ACCT. Otherwise it’s NIT City baybeeeeeee.

King Hippo

TWO. Beating the 11/14 game winner ain’t moving the needle

theeWeeBabySeamus

Could be right there.

theeWeeBabySeamus

After watching last night, I still can’t figure out how Wake beat Duke.
And I still wanna punch Danny Manning in the dick.

scotchnaut

Cuse will be keeping your seat warm if you don’t get the win.

/at least our 47 year winning record streak is still intact. It was looking a bit dicey there for a while

King Hippo

y’all losing to Miami today MIGHT help (State would then be 5 seed), but we need to avoid U*NC (2nd round) and FSU (quarterfinals) like the plague.

theeWeeBabySeamus

3 losses to those assholes in one season, their worst season since I’ve been alive, might be enough for the suicide pact to kick in.

theeWeeBabySeamus

See, I wasn’t as bad as you thought!!!!

– M. Doherty

Horatio Cornblower

They certainly have no Sesame Street cred after that Jared guy.

theeWeeBabySeamus

One can get stabbed to death foar the chicken sandwich at Popeye’s.
Kinda brings homophobia at Chik-fil-a into perspective huh?

Senor Weaselo

Kennedy Fried Chicken, then you KNOW yo in the hood!

Horatio Cornblower

Is Harry Kane hurt? I ask because we’re nearly 30 minutes in and I haven’t seen anyone run into the box and dive to the ground like Greg Louganis going for gold.

Horatio Cornblower

You wouldn’t think Lloris would be that good in goal. Normally they’re so slow. comment image
