Another terrific Discover Weekly playlist from Spotify

I’m sorry I waited all week to share this. It’s a really solid blend of music from all over the map. Hopefully it doesn’t disappear next week.

Another Liverpool piece that makes me feel better

This Deadspin article focuses a little less on the Champions League final and counts all of the good fortune of the 2017-2018 LFC season.

Luckily I still have the Mets’ bullpen catastrophe to keep me in a bad sports mood…

Liverpool 1-3 Real Madrid in the Champions League Final

I’m still kind of steamed at the cheap shot on Mo Salah (#fuckSergioRamos).

It was a tough loss but Liverpool proved that they can run with the elite clubs in Europe. They can’t always win, but they belong. This offseason will be about building bench depth. Its tough to compete with a squad that can bring Gareth freaking Bale off the bench. Sheesh.

This article did a great job of convincing me that it wasn’t all terrible.

I’m going to see them plan an exhibition in July, hopefully the World Cup doesn’t keep too much of the team from playing.

new Graveyard today!

Graveyard broke up for a minute, but they’re back again with Peace. I’ve gotten through it a few times this morning and it’s exactly what I’m looking for in a Graveyard album. The opener is hot shreds and there is plenty of the more bluesy sound they developed over the last couple of albums.

Bartolo Colon is 45

I’m embarrassed to admit that I missed Bartolo’s birthday yesterday. I’m such a fake fan.

He’s a good sport

Hot Snakes on Carson Daly

Hot Snakes made their television debut last night, live from The Troubadour. It rips, obvs.

Liverpool’s Long Road to the Champions League Final

This is a good read at The Ringer about Liverpool’s history (it’s not all great) and their resurgence this season under Jürgen Klopp (which has been mostly great).

I’m still a relatively new fan to English soccer in general but I am increasingly confident that I made the right arbitrary choice when I decided to root for LFC.

Funk Rock Rides Again

Funk Rock Rides Again is a Spotify playlist posted by The Numero Group. Lots of solid 70’s rock songs with funky grooves.

Can’t be mad at that.

Salah & Lovren: Coffee Mates

This is adorable. Mo Salah and Dejan Lovren appear to have become pals over the course ofSalah’s 1st season with Liverpool. I def. Recommend watching with the closed-captioning on. Their English is good but the accents are thick.

Huge match this weekend. Really looking forward to it.
