Messi to continue playing for Argentina

Lionel Messi has no plans to imminently retire from international football because he wants to “continue playing as a champion”.

Messi will be 38 by the time the next World Cup starts in 2026, and will turn 39 during the tournament.

“I’m not retiring from the national team,” he said after the match. “I want to continue playing as a champion.”

Messi had previously said that he expects the Qatar World Cup to be his last.

“It’s my last World Cup,” he said after the semi-final victory over Croatia.

“It is impressive to end up playing a final. There’s a long way to go for the next one, there are many years and surely because of age I won’t get to it.”

fascinating portrait of kyrie irvings beliefs if true. he was suspended earlier for a series of statements, postings, non-apologies involving anti-semitism in the wake of kanye wests anti-semitic remarks. honestly i forget what they were. i cant keep up. i mostly shrug them off but i guess its worth noting.

turned on the mets wild card game for a second just to see the score. last time i did that was in 2015 when they were in the world series. disgusted to see they now digitally impose an ad on the pitchers mound during the games. i know there are ads on practically every visible surface but planting one on the field at the center of your frame of vision is gross. people are disgusting money grubbers. i know given the option its hard to turn down but for some there is no end to the shamelessness. basketball does it too but baseball always had its sacrosanct idea of purity which i suppose has long ago vanished.
