Yep. 2019 was a year of upheaval and rebellion. Here's some highlights, starting with the Colin Kaepernick workout.
The NFL threw Kaep a bone—well, actually, the bone was shot out of a bazooka aimed at his head. With zero anticipation, the league foisted the tryout for a midseason Saturday. From the
Heineken is an amoral mercantile outfit that appropriated the Red Star. Still, please: put down your pitchforks and torches, because I like their beer.
Per Wikipedia: Heineken Lager Beer (Dutch: Heineken Pilsener)—wait. Is Heineken a Pilsener or lager? The bottle says “lager”, which settles the issue. At least for me, because I’m not
My Titans preview was an unhinged mash note to Marcus Mariota. I stand by it. Emotional stability is not a personal goal.
The good news are that Tennessee is 5-5, which ain’t insurmountable in the AFC playoff race, and Mariota enters Week 12 healthy. And rested AF.

A lot to unpack there! First, hey Fox: fuck you for the misspelling. I’m gonna speculate that the graphics guy was an older feller who thought “Sounds like Torretta, Ruthless Posse WOOO”, and didn’t name check out of self-satisfaction (“I can’t be racist, I know Italians!”).
Too much? Listen, you misspell
There’s only a handful of Sundays left until the return of the massive zombie-in that is the NFL season. The spirit soars at the thought of Sundays glued to 10+ hours of NFL games, which gets you 48 net minutes of NFL action and a lifetime of rancor from “neglected”
Hola. I dunno if you’re been keeping up with how we Puerto Ricans took to the streets, massively and with purpose, to force the resignation of our fucking thief and coward of a governor. Lemme just add right now that, uf… It’s been an eventful offseason—WHICH IS OVER!1!1

Today is the debut of Paraguay and Uruguay in the Copa América. Fish out of sand Qatar takes on Paraguay and the better Guay (YMMV) takes Ecuador. But let’s acknowledge the significance of this day.
Happy Vasectomy Awareness Day, reprobates.
The smell of baby powder makes me squirm like a vampire
Lips near each other, no teeth showing: perfect form for a kiss. That was in 2011, the last time Uruguay won the Copa América. Incidentally, that was the last Copa in which Luis Suárez played. He will play in this one; chomp on that, folks.
There have been 43 Copa Américas
Prodigious resources wasted by incompetent narcissists: that’s Argentina. But enough about politics. Let’s talk fútbol.
In the last World Cup, Argentina had one of the more STACKT rosters but were buried under coach Jorge Sampaoli, a clueless diva whose main talent was out-asshole-ing himself.

In Russia 2018,
It’s the biggest game of club fútbol and we’re getting the equivalent of a Vikings – Bills Superb Owl. "Can I deesterb you for a moment to ask if you would hold these two beers for me please", asks Jürgen Klopp to Marv Levy, for losing SIX finals. For Tottenham,
Once upon a time, until 10:00 DFO / Central time today, I was a homeowner. My Ex and I had moved out to separate places by the start of the 2018 NFL season. POINT IS: the home’s mortgage was KILLIN’ me. Christ what a scam. It’s the Herbalife of finance.
The Shempiens League knockouts start today! The tournament was meant to pit the European champions against each other, and there were several in the group stage. But now the field has been halved to 16 teams from the Big Deal European leagues, who play a home-and-away series to advance until
