Let’s face it: the international break sucks. I can’t even find another way to say it.
It never ends.
Worst of all, I have to spend it listening to USMNT fans babble on about how ONLY NOW is Christian Pulisic a star. I mean, after all, it’s not like he’s been playing and scoring in the Bundesliga and the Champions League for months, right? No, it’s his performance against Honduras that really stands out.
Anyway, luckily for us, the international break is almost over. BVB will take on the smurfs this Saturday.
If you need to find a way to fill the time until then, might I suggest bird watching, or playing solitaire, or watching preseason baseball. Ok, that last one was a joke.
