Where in the world is Arsène Wenger?
















On a talking picture box at two, hiding from Barça Chameleon. The library doesn't have a talking picture box -- that's not true, the library doesn't have a talking picture box with Fux Soccer Channel as a selection, nor do we have any outright lizards. A lizard brain or three, perhaps, & a few assorted tomes on lizards or lizardry. Now & then we have cockroaches. Speaking of those who eschew the light, Winning the Future™ begins next week! here! in Cleveland! Why am I not using any of my collectively bargained couch vacation time, no, for that spectacle, not that spectacle? I guess I simply care about the future Winners of the Future beancounters who shalt count all the beans sailboating overseas too much. Once the Sword of Austerity™ hits, plenty of time to watch footie till the bill gets not paid then its off to woodland darkthroning, careful with that axe, Fenriz. Sniff.

"Winning the Future" In Cleveland.... oh my...that's very Obamanistic! hehehehe...Change nobody believes in. hehehehe

MRMacrum said...

As Cleveland goes, so apparently goes the nation.

Randal Graves said...

BDR, two goals deserves two hehs.

okjimm, changing that free stamp eyesore outta town would be a start. Just don't touch my abandoned warehouses.

mrmacrum, we *are* the linchpin of the 26th largest MSA in the nation & that means something.

Charles F. Oxtrot said...

Winning the future necessarily implies losing the past!

okjimm said...

re Charlie O..... Cleveland certainly has a lotta losing in the Past.

David Barber said...

Bye bye, Arsenal!

Barcelona will tear them to pieces!

Apologies for not getting over that much, Randy. I will try to rectumfy that as soon as!

Hope you are well!

Laura said...

Blah blah blah.
And in bigger news.... whatshisname is making his first appearance in Toronto tonight since going to Miami-was it?
Just kidding. Your post was very interesting, I just didn't read it. :)

((Hugs))

charles, bullshit, I put in long, hard hours expanding my Risk empire, I'm not throwing Kamchatka to the curb!

okjimm, we did win a couple of titles in the Neolithic.

david, you guys should get past Marseille which is why I'm hoping ManU draws Barcelona in the next stage. :)

laura, Don Cherry? And fine. After America Wins the Future and drives off into this sunset brought to you by Exxon, have fun choking on our red, white & blue dust!

Always start in Aussie/upsidedownland, sez I.

Too bad there's no Sputnik Turista tour guides for Yakutsk.

Randal Graves said...

if, you think I'd rather eat a vegemite sandwich in lieu of whatever Kamchatkaskis eat?

okjimm, are you drunk?

thatgirl, Magic Worldcat Ball concurs with your findings.

Graves, you swine!

Soccer? I hardly even knew her!

Liberality said...

Soccer? Another sports post? Typical. Hey, you have a wonderful day there Randal, even if its in Cleveland Ohio :)

La Belette Rouge said...

What you talkin' about Willis? Isn't soccer un-merikan?

susan said...

I'll see your Sword of Austerity™ and raise you one Handgun of Hegemony™.

S.W. Anderson said...

The answer for your well-founded anxiety is to militate for a recall election before the Sword of Austerity™ hits. You don't need Darkthroning, you need a dethroning.

So, don't be home or wherever watching footie when you could be out helping build a movement and manning a barricade. Take inspiration from the encouraging push back in yon Wisconsin.

Randal Graves said...

tengrain's here all week, enjoy the smog.

liberality, I assume you'll be cutting & pasting this comment, only replacing soccer & sports with music & metal. :)

LBR, we use soccer to maintain our control of the world when we're short on drones & taxpayer-funded dictators.

susan, bah, no match for the Neutron Bomb of Paradigm Shifting™.

SWA, but then with the referenduming & 10 cent beer nights. Don't scoff at darkthroning, a salve for the soul.

Holte Ender said...

Only Messi stands between Arsenal and the next round. Arsenal will score in the Nou Camp, but so will Barca. I can't wait to see Part II.

Beach Bum said...

The beancounters are having way too much fun at the expense of everyone else, starting to wonder when the Sword of Austerity™ might be turned on their ass.
