I don’t blog that often for some reason, but once in a while I feel the need to actual get my thoughts out on paper (of a digital variety). There seems to be so much going on, it’s hard to know where to start.
- The British Columbia Lions signed (arguably) the best quarterback in the Canadian Football League. Welcome home Mike Reilly!! It’ll be interesting to see how much this energizes the Lions fanbase which hasn’t been given much to get excited about the last five years or so.
- Tottenham Hotspurs delightful performance against Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16. 3-nil clean sheet. It was a nil-nil contest through 45 minutes, but Tottenham made some adjustments that paid huge dividends in the final 45 minutes resulting in 3 unanswered goals.
- UFC tomorrow night has their first show on ESPN (not to be confused with ESPN+ the streaming service). This will be fun because its Cain Velasquez’ return to the Octagon after being out for a couple years recovering from injury. He’ll be up against Francis Ngannou who’s had his struggles of late after getting off to a hot start with UFC.
- Vancouver Whitecaps have a new Manager. Marc Dos Santos comes over from LAFC. The Whitecaps have been mired in mediocrity for virtually every season they’ve competed in Major League Soccer.
This is some of what I’ve been into lately. There’s obviously weightier issues to be talked about, but that’s for later. This was just a short little dip in the hot tub, before diving into the main pool for some real exercise.
