Why do you always "dump" on us at the end of the day? It's bad enough you've become a 9-5er blogger but closing the day with a dump is just crude.

You got my hopes up on Fantasy Congress and it looks like the link is broken...thanks Ezra all I could think about was crazy Tom Price in the leadoff spot with Bernie Sanders batting cleanup.

Seriously, I got so excited, only to see that the site's down.

Ezra,
Please stick to what you know, and do with admirable quality, and don't wander into the wild world of soccer passion. The 4-5 hours long flights to European fixtures do present a problem, and give an advantage to luckier teams, whose European group rivals are located closer. E.g. on 10/25 bitter rivals Man United and Liverpool play each other in English Premier league. On 10/21 Man U has a game in Moscow, whereas Liverpool has a European game on 10/20 at home, which means at least 2 days of training lost by one of the 2 rivals. Man U also has to travel to another faraway destination - Istanbul, whereas the other 3 English teams in the competition don't have to travel even half that far - which is what the teams' representatives bragged or complained about.
P.S. At last I can post something meaningful to your excellent blog.
