This parade issue with the tanks is really upsetting. Appropriating traditional communist/fascist iconography into our culture is disturbing. Although I suppose it goes hand in hand with the fascist policies of this regime. I think it's more about bragging rights amongst heads of state. Mind you, f...

The semi with Spurs should be a fun one. Ajax is legit. Beat Real and Juve on the road plus tied at Bayern. There are definitely going to be a bunch of goals scored in that tie.


They are 8-)
