Japan is testing a "remote cheerer" app. Hopefully it has a YSA button.




For a country that built its 2022 World Cup bid on projecting life size holograms of games into stadiums across the world, I was hoping they'd be pumping out something at least a tiny bit cooler than a cheering app by now.

Would RB offer anywhere near the money of those other clubs?


Celtic has fallen so far in European football that my first instinct was to assume they can't be spending much anymore, but they dropped $20M on inbound transfers last year which at least puts us to shame. Granted they also sold their left back to Arsenal for $27M so they put us to shame there too.


No way in hell we land him.

We dont spend money and leaving Europe is a terrible move.


Will the $2M we spent on Jorgensen not do the trick here?

And the reward for this tournament is, what, pride?

Still seems pointless.


Is your preference really to have zero soccer at all?


Interesting point from Bedoya though, its so easy to forget the human side of the equation.

I like Cuomo and I think hes handled this pretty well.


At minimum his press conferences have been really well done, he's able to put his own ego aside and deliver the facts. He sticks to what his plan is, why he's doing it, and the information its all based on. He speaks with empathy and responds to "gotcha" questions with poise. The only one who has really been able to get under his skin even a little through all this is Trump, but squabbles between Trump and governors was inevitable.


The nursing home thing isn't a good look though, feels like any other time he's pointed back to federal guidance he's been able to be pretty specific about it.

Meanwhile, in TX, with triple the population they have just 1,300 deaths and a flattened curve.   All sorts of obvious reason for that, but you can understand why people outside the Metro area have a different perspective on things.


Been interesting to realize just how poorly population density and pandemics mix. Texas only has one city in the top 100 most densely populated in the US, you've gotta ride a horse for miles to sneeze on your neighbor in a lot of that state. Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx are all in the top 20.
