27 June Lesser Madness Thread

Tis a strange schedule.  You get one Premiership fixture each day, at bizarre times.  Saturday has ONLY the early bird special, which features Euro-curious Wolves away to “just happy to be here” Villa (7:30, NBCSN).  I feel like a lunatic setting me alarms for this.  But I will.  Saints at Moose Hornets is your Sunday brunch (11:30, NBCSN).  Surely, nobody needs (or wants) an alarm for that’un.

Most of the British action is the FA Cup quarters, 1 match on Saturday, 3 on Sunday.  Knifey/Arsenal is the pick of the lot (8:00, Sun).  And I think ESPN is broadcasting all or at least some of these, filling that massive #ContentVoid.  Originally, was all going to be ESPN+ only.  I have it, but teevee box is easier for olds like Hippo.

Mighty Whitey are away to Leeds in HAWT Championship action (10:00, Sat).  Had Litre’s homeys won last week, this would have been very tasty indeed.  Alas, Fulham-ish happened.  As it is wont to do.

Krauts have all their matches at the same time, because they aren’t the most fun group of ppls.  Various Fox/FS entities will carry sommet or another (9:30, Sat).  I have given up betting them, the break tossed a spanner into my system.  Fuck you, YOU have a problem.

Santander League is nice and spaced-out, both days.  BeIn also has Kaylyn Kyle now (as pictured).  Do you think she got my letters, and is just too shy to write back?  I done told her not to feel pressured to use blood just cause I did.  (smh obvs)

Most importantly – THE GODDAMNED REDSHITE WON’T BE AROUND FOR ANY OF IT.  Yes, this past Thursday was a day to live in infamy, much like 9/11, but with Scandinavia replacing the Middle East as the outlier happy zone.

Pretend Man City??  Glad you asked!  After 22 Prem fixtures of the 2046-47 season (SHUT UP)…my last remaining dream of an “Invincibles” season is still alive.  19-0-4, 16 points clear of 2nd position Bournemouth (stay alive FOAR this sweet reality, yeah right!), who I welcome to David Silva Community Stadium next.  I will update y’all in the comments, as circumstances warrant.

I leave it to Wakey, Litre, and/or Ballsy to writes MOAR if they feel so inclined.

Balls:  Barcelona tied a game away to Sevilla and that has allowed Real Madrid to tie them on points.  Since Real won one El Clásico and tied the other,  they would get the tiebreaker and win the league. There are only seven games left including today’s tilts.

Barcelona will visit Celta de Vigo today while Real Madrid go to Barcelona tomorrow to take on relegation-bound Espanyol.

I do recommend watching Athletic Bilbao take on Mallorca in the early early morning for those of you with little babies.

A special note to pass along: Australia and New Zealand were named as hosts for the 2023 Women’s World Cup!!

I don’t know what will be happening in my life then,  but it sounds like it would be an awesome trip! Who’s in? DFO Road Trip!

Considering how bad I was at those, it would be rancid butter by the time I got it opened.

Good for the intolerants.

Senor Weaselo

That sounds like a bad choice.

Mr. Ayo

Pocono is the worst NASCAR track.

So stupid to have 2 races there a year.

Can’t wait for next week when the big boy racing leagues get started.

Hey, van Gisbergen cleaning up in sim rallycross, even if Tom Blomqvist beat him out in Norway.

There are worse places to be trapped trash panda.

Until the umans get home.

You have to throw all this out now, right, you know cause of the contamination? If you could just let me free into the same dumpster, I would really appreciate it. K, thanks.

Hi Rocket, wanna come out of there now? Part 3 will be ready soon

litre_cola

So far booze and weed have not made me less angry about my stupid fuckwit footy club. Fuck.

/as frustrating as it is, I love that something so trivial can make these emotions come to the surface.

Shit, I miss going to K-town to get fried chicken.

Wakezilla

Captain Slabhead with the win. United wins, but at what cost for Tuesday’s match?

herodotus450

Why doesn’t the team with more people simply kick the ball in the net?

Wakezilla

You must be new to how Manchester United play in the post Fergie world. Matches that are gimmes are always the hardest

herodotus450

Sure Fergie left, but Will I Am is still enough to carry the group.

scotchnaut

Fergie has some feelings about the breakup.

Mr. Ayo

Watched a classic footy match from Fox that only showed the minute part of the clock.

Teams expecting Manure to beat Norwich

1. ManU

2. The shitheads announcing the game.

[Norwich goalie makes brilliant save]

Announcer: “He was moving that way anyway.”

Hey Hippo, I known you’re going for the mighty Invincibles, but how many other trophies are in play this year?

Senor Weaselo

In my playing of Space Captainface (it’s a Homestar reference) in New Star Soccer Mobile the thing I regret is they don’t have all the cup competitions, so if you’re an American national (which I set up) there’s just WC qualifiers, no Gold Cup, and there’s no Super Cup or Community Shield.
/But hey, winning 2 consecutive World Cups pre-covid when I played it on the train counts for something, especially after before Space was a starter on the American team they didn’t even make the Hex.

Wakezilla

Martial is on now?

United should run a 2-2-6 formation and let it all hangout and let the cards fall where they may.

litre_cola

BC Dick is alive and well. Beers and a joint in the backyard.

Game Time Decision

is the grass nice?
Both the weed and him trying to grow a new lawn?

litre_cola

Absolutely both are great!

Mr. Ayo

Free Lesser Footy!

scotchnaut

I’ve no choice but to post this. And yes, it’s a perfectly crafted pop tune.
