The Daily Hilario: Welcome back to the Champions League and the FA Youth Cup

Dennis Grombkowski

Your daily dose of off-topic shenanigans. Now with added Champions League and FA Youth Cup action.

Three things:

  1. Yey, Champions League is back!
  2. Yey, FA Youth Cup is back (Chelsea U18 travel to Cardiff; live on Chelsea TV at 19.05 GMT). Newcastle U18 await the winners in the quarterfinals.
  3. True Detective episode 6 5 was the most intense yet.

Despite being the suckiest bunch of sucks that have ever sucked, Team Slovakia still has a chance at a medal. They have to beat their half-brothers first (12pm EST); a matchup that's generally more intense than the whole revolution that split Czechoslovkia back in 1993. (There's a reason they call it the Velvet Revolution.)
