Okay, I didn’t actually watch the game so that headline is more of an educated guess on my part, but it is true that Julian Weigl and SL Benfica are through to the Champions League quarterfinals after beating AFC Ajax, the club that blew Borussia Dortmund to smithereens in the group stage. It just goes to show you how disappointing BVB were in the fall, failing to pick up a single point against them or Sporting Lisbon in three of four games.

This one received a lot of controversy for all the wrong reasons. All the Twitter replies are just people who have never had corned beef and think the beef below is raw.

Bagels are one of the only foods that I will be a real snob about, and that is one shitty looking bagel.
