CONCACAF Gold Cup (Kenji Gorre sighting)
at 03:46 1 Jul 2019

USA just finished limping into the semifinals tonight past a gritty little underdog island called Curacao 1-0.

Curacao qualified as the Caribbean Cup Champs and then shocked a lot of people by making it out of the Group Stage of this Gold Cup.

Curacao's left wing tonight was none other than Kenji Gorre. To be honest, even after all those seasons in the under 21's, I never knew his name is pronounced "Hurrah." Was a really active attacker, but perhaps didn't make the most of his opportunities.

Their best player (and #10) is current Cardiff City/ex Villa man Leonardo Bacuna. He's pretty dang good, to be fair; at least he was impressive tonight.

As for Curacao - this is actually a nice story in itself - they didn't even exist until 2010. Until then, Curacao competed as the "Dutch Antilles" on a team comprised of 6 neighboring islands.

Now they (population 160K) seem to be intent on becoming the Iceland of the Caribbean. A couple of really good players from the Netherlands that qualify via their ancestry are reported to be interested in joining these upstarts, as they are clearly building something. Here's hoping they keep improving to the point of maybe making some waves by the time WC qualifying starts.

Central figure in the USA college bribery scam is a Swans investor
at 18:22 15 Mar 2019

This has been big news over here all week, partly because two minor TV celebrities (Lori Laughlin and Felicity Huffman) were among the rich people who were arrested for bribing this guy to get their dumb kids into colleges.

Now it turns out that Singer is one of the investors Levien and Kaplan brought in.

100 year old photo of Welsh coal miners triggers Arizona columnist
at 23:09 30 Jan 2019

This reads like an Onion article, but this guy is completely serious. And the largest newspaper in Arizona printed this:

Turns out, these miners were at a pub in Cwmbach, Aberdare.

On a positive note, undefeated in January
at 21:52 29 Jan 2019

Tonight was an opportunity wasted, but it happens.

Mulder was terrible (a very rare occurrence for him in a Swansea shirt) and their GK was spectacular.

Still it's nice to go an entire, busy month (5 fixtures, 2 cup ties) without a defeat.

Uppa #Swans!

Granted this classic American comedy show isn't at all what it used to be, but this was cute. Hang on through the last few seconds...
