This is actually your Lesser Footy Open Thread for Saturday morning, Wild Card Weekend. A thing that the Houston Texans, whatever they are, will NOT be participating in.
Good morning everyone! This is Balls here and I’m taking a hilarious post template that Romonobyl put together and finally letting it see the light of day.
The EPL is taking the weekend off because… reasons? Well, they WERE the only league fully playing during the holidays, so maybe that’s it.
The Spanish league is back from the break and we have some good games super early. Is this an early Día de los Reyes Magos present? MAYBE!!
For those of you that didn’t grow up in this tradition, January the 6th is like a second Christmas for certain Spanish-influenced cultures. As all good Catholics know, the baby Jesus
was visited by the three Kings (or wise men, alternatively) who brought him gold, frankincense, and myrrh as birthday presents and to pay him homage.
In that spirit, little kids in many Spanish-speaking countries wake up to little presents brought to them by the three Kings. FUCK YOU I’M GETTING PRESENTS SO YOU’RE DAMN RIGHT I BELIEVE IN SANTA AND THE THREE KINGS!
There is also Rosca de Reyes.
This is a Mexican tradition in which families gather together on the 6th to share presents and a slice of a specially-made sweet bread with at least one plastic baby Jesus inside. Rosca goes best with hot chocolate, coffee, or milk.
The tradition is that whoever gets the slice with the baby Jesus inside MUST host a party before a month is gone.
Since we are a Christmas Eve family and we, frankly, couldn’t wait, we had slices last night (It was the 6th in Australia, ok?!?) and my Dad got the baby! Party at my Dad’s house!
Also, our Rosca has 3 babies, so there are still two other chances for a party! Don’t you wish you were Mexican now?
But I digress. What games are on today? Let’s see…(All times Pacific)
And what about beautiful Canadia, you say?
Uh, what the fuck is a Fanatiz? That doesn’t sound like the Mexican league is readily available in The Great White North, which is really a shame.
This is Week 1 of the Liga MX Clausura season, so we are starting fresh! Defending champion Tigres, you remember Tigres, right?
lost their first game, so once again the league is wide open for anyone to claim.
Besides, what else are you going to do this morning, go outside in the cold?
We’ll see you later for the Wild Card Open Threads…
