I am addicted to mornings. It’s the time of day when the earth is just still. Or at the most, barely moving, sort of just stirring. You can hear the wind over the sound of humans. Every morning I take…

2018 was the year of the jerk and as if to prove it, the United States of America inaugurated the one of the loudest jerks of all time, Donald Trump. To underline what kind of jerk Donald Trump really is…

Unai Emery held his first press conference as Arsenal coach and while some things sounded quite familiar there was a change in the air about the presser. First, the familiar: Arsenal’s transfer business is done. At least as far as…

France hasn’t surrendered. It’s an old joke, I know. I apologize. You deserve better. Can I work one in there about France and England fighting over Belgium? It would work a lot better if Germany were still in the tournament.…

Good morning. If you haven’t had a chance head over to yesterday’s article and read Greg’s comment on “It’s Coming Home”. His little essay got stuck in the spam folder until this morning. He explains what the song is about…

England won the World Cup last night, or at least that’s how it felt watching the match live and interacting with the fans on twitter. Let me guess, half of you are happy and half of you are worried that…
