The Devil Next Door - Fascinating show. I've never actually seen the kinds of photos from the Holocaust that they show in this. Terrifying stuff.

Been watching a lot of Christmas specials and noticed they all have come to the conclusion that the holidays are about Three Things, in this order.

1. Family
2. Food
3. Presents
Must See  |  Should See  |  Good  |  Mixed  |  Bad  | The Worst

Anyone watch soccer? EPL? I have season tickets to our local Tier 2 team, Phoenix Rising. I'm also a big Liverpool fan, and no, not just starting this year, or last. Just wondering.

I am a Liverpool supporter of about 21 years (Sporty Spice was my favorite Spice Girl), so long-suffering until recently. Also Minnesota United is my domestic team of choice...was a season ticket holder for their first two years in MLS before I moved away from Minnesota. Casually keep an eye on other soccer but don't have teams in other leagues (though since I have ESPN+ I'm tempted to get a Serie A or Bundesliga (starting in the fall) team.

Fun aside re Phoenix Rising, I went to High School with Brandon McCarthy who is one of the co-owners of Phoenix Rising. He's also a Liverpool supporter.

Yeah, I think much of the suffering is over. A collapse this year would be...so much to bear! Don't think it'll happen with a world class player at the majority of the positions. Who's your favorite player? I'm a huge Trent guy. Love Van Dijk and Alisson, too. I think after having such a porous defense in years past has made me appreciative of our defenders and keeper, although I love Trent for his vision and passing. Guy sees things unfold before they happen and puts the ball on you like no one. I suspect he'll be a central midfielder before long.

That is a fun fact. I'm hoping Rising get to MLS sooner or sooner. They play in a pop-up stadium on the huge piece of land that is set aside for the actual 20K+ seat MLS stadium, of which funding is already lined up. There's obviously lots of soccer fans here, so it's crazy it hasn't happened yet.

Minnesota United's Dark Clouds are cool. From what I know, they have some off-beat songs and chants, more than just aping English football traditions. Rising's biggest supporter group, Los Bandido's, are kind of a Latinx Antifa group mixed with a passion for the game and our very diverse team.

We do have a Liverpool product playing defense. All sorts of connections there.

I thought I heard MLS is done announcing expansion teams and Phoenix isnít on the list. I find that insane since Phoenix is a massive city with large hispanic population and already one of the best non-MLS teams.

He hasnít been quite the force he was in past years but Firminoís such a crafty player and that beaming smile...really the whole team itís great to see how much fun they are having with it now.
