Thanks to the midweek internationals, we are left with almost no actual football to watch today or most of the next five days. Thanks, FIFA! Now I'm going to have to, like, pay attention to other humans around me and maybe even do some productive work. Gosh!
And now, off to watch True Detective.

TWO+ MILLION RETWEETS.
Well done, Ellen.
Full list of winners at this year's Oscars | ABC
Not sure I disagree with any of the major category winners. Gravity, Dallas Buyers Club, and 12 Years a Slave all cleaned up. That I've only seen one of those (the first one) is something that I shall have to rectify. There was also one (Italian) dude who name-checked (i.e. "thanked") Diego Maradona. Probably my highlight of the whole evening.
LEGOgraphy | The Verge
It would be even cooler if he managed to actually shoot with the LEGO camera.
New Channel 4 documentary tonight on just how rife abuse is still is at football grounds | Guardian
Not that I'm surprised. Hopefully they'll detail what efforts clubs and organizers are making (or, more importantly, not making) in order to combat this. You can watch live at 8pm (UK).
Wichita State goes 31-0 in the regular season | SB Nation
First undefeated regular season in NCAA Division 1 men's college basketball since 2004. Are the Shockers ready to shock even more this season? They did make the Final Four last year...
Yaya's goal was ok, I guess, but I liked this from Tevez even more | YouTube
I'm not 100% convinced Yaya actually meant that. Tevez, on the other hand, absolutely leathers this one. I'm so glad he plays in Italy now.
FOOTBALL (all times GMT):
19.45: League Two, 1st vs. 19th: Chesterfield vs. Portsmouth (ummm...yeah - can you believe Portsmouth are NINETEENTH in League Two; yikes)
