QWK KCKS is our way of helping you get your day started with a refreshing blast of football culture right in your face.

Thank a vet. Honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

No intro today, other than to say Happy Memorial Day to the Americans, and to note that because of the stateside holiday, things will be much slower than usual here at KCKRS.

WE’VE OFFICIALLY REACHED THE ‘MENAGERIE’ STAGE. WHERE’S DR. DOOLITTLE?

Look what Pulpo Paul started. In addition to the psychic pig that will predict games at Euro 2012, there’s now a Polish elephant named Citta. // World Cup Blog

 

I THINK I WOULD LIKE TO SEE A TAIL WAGGING A DOG. MIGHT BE HILARIOUS.

More Eden Hazard, because you’re undoubtedly on the edge of your chaise. Has he made a decision? This says maybe possibly no one knows. So yeah. // The Telegraph

 

AS FACES OF ENGLAND GO, THIS ONE WILL GIVE YOU THE MOST NIGHTMARES.

I kid. We love Gazza. Here he is with his classic “tongue out” face for an Umbro campaign. // IBWM

 

VIDEO: YOU DIDN’T BELIEVE ME, DID YOU? CHECK IT.

I’m not a Kasabian guy (that would be Keith’s bag), but I can certainly respect this goal scored by their guitarist, Sergio Pizzorno. (YouTube)

 

AND NOW, HERE TO HONOR AMERICA IS…OH GOD! MAKE IT STOP!

Okay, so it seems a little wrong to link to this terrible rendition of the American national anthem from the USA-Scotland match the other night, but I’m going to do it anyway. Screechy. // Dirty Tackle

 

HODGSON IS OFF AND RUNNING. OKAY, JOGGING. WALKING AT A BRISK PACE?

Why England’s win over Norway will be the first of many under Roy Hodgson for the Three Lions. // Bleacher Report

 

THAT WAS ENTIRELY TOO MUCH EFFORT ON A DAY MADE FOR BURGERS AND BEER.

Raise your glass to a vet. Because I said so and because it’s the right thing to do. Follow us and like us.
