Good morning, everyone.
This international break has just been absolutely brutal. There have been no interesting matches involving BVB players, a plethora of injuries, a bunch of unsubstantiated transfer rumors, and worst of all, it has been absolutely interminable. It feels like 10 years have passed since Dortmund played Augsburg on October 2nd.
But it’s okay, because there’s only one day left until BVB football finally returns. Unfortunately, I now have to be a debbie downer by continuing to report on BVB’s everlasting injury woes. In a Daily Bee last week, I provided a list of Dortmund’s players injured at the time. While a few players like Manuel Akanji and Erling Haaland are healthy again and should be ready to play tomorrow, according to Ruhr Nachrichten, Mahmoud Dahoud, Raphael Guerreiro, and Thomas Meunier are all guaranteed to miss the game.
Now, for a palette-cleanser. Once I saw this on Twitter, I knew I had to post it here:
Honestly, more impressive to me than the fact that he managed to hit the target three times in a row, is that he managed to stack three soccer balls on top of each other. To be honest, I have my suspicions about the veracity of this video. The BVB account swears its real, but I’m not so sure. If it is real, then it’s one of the most impressive things I’ve ever seen. If not, then we’re going to need to start some discussions about the effects of ultra-realistic deepfake technology on society.

Should international breaks be banned under the Geneva Convention for causing inhumane levels of mental and physiological distress due to boredom?
