This has inspired a new term for my vocabulary: gaud-awful.

Usually when Canada has a chance to show Americans the classy way to do things they don't wind up out-tackying the good ole USA, which, to their credit, is no mean feat.
Think it, be it.

You want elegant  I refer you to this- subtle and understated-

For effortless tacky it's American all the way. All others can only aspire to greatness.

One of these sports teams needs to hire @Warner to design their championship ring.  He'd someone manage to make it over the top while avoiding the gaudiness of the above.

terrible news to wake up to. i saw that obama and the rest were tweeting about kobe and i was like 'huh. what's going on'. then i clicked more news and realised what had happened.. :-[ tbh, still in disbelief and shocked. i never watched the NBA but even then you know kobe was the GOAT..

Very sad.  Kobe had strong links to the soccer world as he was a huge fan of the sport.... legit fan not just a token celebrity fan.  I believe he lived in Italy for a number of years when he was younger when his dad played professional basketball there which is where he picked up his love for soccer.  I also believe he was fluent in Italian.

Sad loss for the sports world for sure.

Also tragic for the loss of his 13 year old daughter in the crash and all the other members on board as well.  Being a girl dad myself this makes it hit a little closer to home for some reason.

i recently saw a video of him and the PSG team(i think?), man's got some touch on him.. he'd do more keepy ups than i can..
