The Only Constant Is Change

20 Jul


First off, I must thank the ever amazing hopechaser for single-handedly covering the World Cup and doing such a brilliant job at it. She is a true star and the best watishista correspondent that a girl could ask for. She’s been holding down the fort at a time where I’m just not capable of doing so and I am very grateful.

I’m not good with change and that’s an understatement. I’ve been going through massive change in my personal life which is why I haven’t been around this summer. While I feel that all the upheaval will ultimately be beneficial, it doesn’t make the process any easier.

The Daily Drool: Jesús Vallejo

12 Jul

Today’s Drool is one of our newest (actually old) Muppet Babies. Center back Jesús was actually signed to Real Madrid back in 2015 on a 5 year deal but was immediately loaned back to Real Zaragoza (the team we got him from). After that season he moved on to Eintracht Frankfurt and continued making a name for himself.
