Re: Star Wars Thread...The Spoiler Edition

Well Mandalorian is just a western. And they lean into it. Small one-horse towns, the speeder bikes as horses. I mean hell this episode basically is the plot of most classic Westerns. And if you watch the closing credits the storyboard art work points at it even more. So give me Olyphant and more of...

That was great. Like how you were able to setup the strong one-liners. Have not watched your videos since early on. Clearly making big strides and way more comfortable up there and engaging the crowd.

Re: All threads are temporary. This one's about soccer.

Damn Ajax kicked the ever living crap out of VVV. Only 2 of the 13 goals were before the red card in the 52nd minute. 45 shots of which 23 were on frame. 75 percent possession.

A 5 goal game for the sticker all from the run of play.

VVV is usually a mid table squad.
