Stumbling Towards the Finish

I keep looking for stories...something, FFS.  But there's nothing.  Just Hull and Swans battling for the last life buoy.  And the play on the pitch has been reflecting such.  Some truly dire shite.  At least I have to pick up my kid from college first thing Saturday, and will only

Arise, Lesser Footy!

Welcome back for another weekend of...things.  The Darkest Timeline offers no guarantees in terms of results, nor entertainment value.

Welcoming Back Lesser Footy WITHOUT Claudio Ranieri

Yes, footy will definitely be way less foxy without his grinning face on the sidelines.  Leicester remain alive in the Champions League (despite a dreadful performance on Wednesday, a 1-nil win at home would see them advance into the quarterfinals), but the Board pulled the plug nonetheless, a mere 9+
