bout to watch a us women national team soccer game on... hbomax? stumbled on a game over the weekend and miraculously recalled they were playing again today. most of the old guard from the world cup winners seem to be gone or injured. one of the younger leaders is mallory swanson, nee mal pugh who just married some mlb player. i thought he would be loaded but net worth listed him at $5 million which is peanuts these days for a major leaguer. but fear not, mallory swanson, nee mal pugh, will be the envy of her teammates after all. her hubby just signed a seven year $177 million dollar contract with the cubs. so fuck you, indeed!

you break off your engagement with your boyfriend of one year. are you morally responsible to return the ring if asked? what if that ring is worth $800000 and your net worth is speculatively $2 million? what if your boyfriend currently makes $35 million a year bouncing a ball? asking for a friend. ok, its me!

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.”
