As sad as it may seem, there is only one game left in the NFL season and it is not today. It’s time to get used to life without the NFL.
All is good, of course, because we not only have AFLW and AFL to look forward to but we still have good ole regular fútbol. The original and still the worldwide champ. This summer we also have the World Cup to look forward to as well as the associated various cups involved.
While summer arrives, we still have league fútbol to enjoy and Oh Kids has it been enjoyable to watch! I have to say that watching the collapse of Real Madrid this year has been a joy. True, they won the World Club Cup in the winter, but they only had to beat Gremio and a squad of journalists, so it wasn’t that hard.
Their stated goal is now to stay in the Champions League places in La Liga while concentrating on the
Copa Del Rey and
the Champions League. Sounds almost Arsenalesque.
Man City continues setting the pace in West Hollywood and the EPL. Meanwhile, in Germany, the Bundesliga is essentially a season-long preparation for Russia with the dudes in Munich controlling everything. Please fill in your favorite WW2 simile.
I’m telling you, if I was a Mexican scout, I’d be watching that league in preparing for the group stage. As Litre told you last week, the teams under Bayern are fighting fiercely for the Champions League spots.
The Mexican league is in full swing and the action is muy muy caliente. The fans too.
Here are the game schedules with the US first and then Canada.
I have to say thank you to my Canadian friends for being such a kickass country and wonderful people. A special lady friend of mine recently came back from your beautiful country and she returned raving about your friendly warm people and your beautiful snowy country.
Now, if only that global warming would kick into high gear…
Ok, that’s all for me. Have at it!
