Going into last night’s second leg of its Europa League Round-of-16 matchup against Stade Rennes, the No. London Arse were down 1-3; to advance to the quarterfinals, they would need to win the second leg by a scoreline of either 2-nil or, in the event of an away goal by Stade Renne, by at least 3 goals. The Arse prevailed 3-nil, winning the tie 4-3 on aggregate, and two of last night’s goals were scored by — yup, you guessed it! — Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Thanks, Obama! Thanks, Aubameyang! The good parts are at 0:14, 0:25 and 2:15, and Aubameyang even assisted on the middle goal. Good work. Continue reading

There’s been some cold winter weather here in sunny-again Southern California. To wit, the outside temperature in La-La Land never made it to 70°F (!) during February 2019! That’s the first February on record not to hit that mild mark! However, the end of this prolonged chilly spell is nigh. Now, you might think that it’s sissy (snowflake-y!) to note that sort of thing, but, really, it’s a matter of degree — figuratively, literally, the whole thing! Continue reading

You might say we have an obsession with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and, on the evidence, you would not be wrong! Thanks, Obama! Thanks, Aubameyang! Anyway, eternal rivals No. London Arse and Man Utd. dueled this morning (PDT) at The Emirates, and it was the hosts who hung on to prevail over a profligate United, 2-nil. Here, the aforementioned Aubameyang hits the penalty-shot after it was awarded on a dodgy foul committed against Alexandre Lacazette. Continue reading
