Re: Television (no longer temporary)

I don’t like Lasso but it’s because it’s on appletv and there no way in hell I’m paying for that. Looking forward to checking it out when they sell the rights though at some point. Preach, brother.

Tonight, I popped my meatball cherry. Major oversight on my part but I’m using my wife’s Italian grandmother’s “recipe” and can’t believe I’ve never made ‘em before.

I'm lucky I didn't bet O/U points because I would have missed huge on Chelsea and Wolves over and United under.
Oh, as a sentient* being, I’ll take the under on NUFC. We’re these from the start of the season or from now? Either way, surprised at the low total for Liverpool.
