AND THEY’RE CALLED THE ‘GIFFIES.’ WHICH IS JUST TERRIBLE, REALLY.
Here’s your .gif of the year. Yes, I know it’s only the 3rd, but you’ll agree when you see it. // This Guy On Twitter

WHO SAID OPPOSING FANS ARE LIKE TERRITORIAL DOGS? OH.

SO WHAT ARE HIS DUTIES EXACTLY? EMBOSSING THINGS?
Leo was named “Embosser of Rosario” during a trip back to Argentina. No one seems to know who that lady pictured with him is. // Kickette

 

NO WORD YET ON IF HE’LL HAVE A HILARIOUS BLOG.
Chuck Blazer’s replacement as CONCACAF general secretary is another American. Who I’m fairly certain will never live up to this. // US Soccer Players

 

DON’T QUIT YOUR DAY JOB. BHAHAHA…I’M SAD.
Neymar does that thing athletes like to do where they pretend they’re rock stars. Warning: this involves that insidious song “Ai, Se Eu Te Pego.” // Dirty Tackle

They have one of these things in Doha. No further comment. (REUTERS)

AC Milan players went to an event in Doha, took photos with a statue of a trained falcon wearing blinders for reasons I cannot begin to comprehend. // Futbolita

 

AMERSOCCERCANA.
Here’s a wonderful photo of Marilyn Monroe at a match between the USA and Israel played at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn in 1957. // Invent Football

 

I DEMAND AN EASY NARRATIVE.
Forcing the “old club” story. I cringed at “rhetorical sewage pipe.” // When Saturday Comes

 

PHOTO: REPORTS.
Ahem.

 

CELEBRICOACH.
Diego Maradona’s UAE adventure isn’t going so well from a results standpoint. But man, is he a big name. // The National

 

INSTANT CONFIDENCE. ADD TITI AND STIR VIGOROUSLY.
Thierry Henry might be less of a playing addition to Arsenal’s flagging campaign and more of psychological boost. It’s reasonable. // Bleacher Report

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Someone else wrote KCKRS yesterday, so it’s okay for me to say Happy New Year again for the first time. Try to keep up. Here’s to 2012. Follow us closely, like us tenderly, and keep your eyes on the prize.
