Here at Anonymous Eagle, we're hip to all the latest trends on the internet... or so we tell ourselves. We know how much the kids today like to keep in touch and communicate through social media. In particular, we're big fans of the service known the world over as Twitter. Each week, we'll bring you a tweet that we found particularly interesting/funny/thought provoking/ridiculous that has some kind of Marquette connection to it.
Are you enjoying the World Cup so far? As I type this on Sunday afternoon while watching France vs Honduras, it's been a hell of a tournament, even if Wilson Palacios did his damnedest to make sure that this would be the worst game of the tournament so far. As of right now, we've had five teams give up the first goal of the game only to end up winning the match. In four years ago, that only happened THREE times. It's enough to put the fear of death in you if your squad is first on the board, of course, but it makes for a hell of a television event.
In any case, back on Wednesday, before the tournament actually got started, former Marquette men's soccer player and current Angelholms FF defender Eric Pothast weighed in with this ranking system:
My Favorite Cups: 1). World 2). FA 3). Stanley 4). D 5). Protective 6). Coffee 100). Hic— Eric Pothast (@Eric_Pothast) June 11, 2014
Now that's how you hit the spectrum of comedy, folks. You start out serious, then suddenly twist into blue territory with a joke that makes you stop and think for a second to realize what the hell is actually being said. It all wraps up with not only the big jump in the rankings bit, but also the broken word gag. Marquette alum Steve Rushin would be proud.
Be sure to check in with Pothast's blog as he checks in on a regular basis detailing his trials and tribulations in the Swedish second division. Angelholms currently sits 12th in the Superettan table, one slot above the relegation playoffs, but there's a lot of season left to play.
