TODAY, EVERYTHING IS BLUE. BLUE LITTLE HOUSE. WITH A BLUE LITTLE WINDOW. AND A BLUE CORVETTE. EVERYTHING IS BLUE.
And now you hate me for getting Eiffel 65 stuck in your head. Hey, not my fault. Blame Kun Aguero. If it wasn’t for him, everything would be red, and since there’s no terrible Europop song about being red, you wouldn’t have “I’m blue da-ba-dee-da-ba-die” rattling around your internal monologue. Congratulations, Citizens. More on an epic Premier League final day to come, so be sure to follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook.
