I won’t tell you that no one at all leaves their seat for 45 minutes straight but the amount of up and down is dramatically less than the average American sport. After all, one cannot properly join the chorus of Oriol Romeu’s terrace song from in front of a stainless […]

The Safety of Math (But How I’m Scared I’ve Made My Final School Lunches This Morning)
