Quiet night in Seattle before Dortmund - Gladbach

Pretty quiet night in Seattle. Just watched Vice's tremendous documentary on Pulisic for probably the fourth time. As usual got a little teary-eyed right around 13:48.

Tomorrow Borussia Dortmund play Borussia Mönchengladbach. Two websites I've looked at already say Pulisic will probably start. It must be nice to not have to travel across the country, to be able to just go to Düsseldorf, a short bus ride away. Do a lot of the players drive themselves? Does Pulisic have his driver's license yet? I can't imagine he does. Why would he? The happiest place for Pulisic is on the team bus.

My predictions for tomorrow: I think Gladbach will score a goal and end die Schwarzgelben's record for clean sheets. I think the game might end in a 2-2 draw, or a Dortmund victory. I don't think Gladbach will win. I do think Pulisic will be vital, cutting people up, making dangerous passes and dangerous runs.

In personal news I found out yesterday I could live in Logroño, Spain, if I want, for all of November for 300 euros. This is somewhat enticing. It would be a two bedroom apartment. I could Air Bnb one of the rooms. And I would be in Europe. Maybe I could somehow go to the Dortmund vs. Tottenham game in Dortmund. Either way, it's one step closer to Germany. Of course, I could always just go directly to Germany, too. But Germany's cold.

I'm also going to get fuboTV tomorrow since the game is on FS2. This is something I've been holding off on, because I don't like free trials because I always forget to cancel them. But I don't want to watch the game with crappy resolution on a pirated feed.

Night for now! Don't let the Suarez's bite!

Christian Pulisic and Gordon Lightfoot and Revierderby Woes

Hey Pulisic fans,

Man, what a rough stretch it's been. First this happened:
New post (Christian Pulisic scratched from Dortmund squad with muscle injury) has been published on Fifa World Cup - https://t.co/ClVnwexzE9pic.twitter.com/pA8n70KV3S — FIFA Events (@FIFA_Events) November 25, 2017 Then, Pulisic missed the next game against Tottenham, a game that didn't really matter as far as standings went but was huge for team morale. And guess what, CHA BOI (me) WAS AT THAT GAME!

Yes, Pulisic fans, I actually went to a game. In Dortmund. I actually went to the city of Dortmund, and I actually had a ticket to the Borussia Dortmund vs. Tottenham game, and I actually went to the stadium, and I actually sat in a seat, and my eyes actually took in the game and the Yellow Wall and the fanfare and all of it.

But, of course, Dortmund lost. And Pulisic didn't play.



Luckily Pulisic was back for the Revierderby against Schalke, as evidenced here:

Leverkusen vs. Dortmund Preview: Pulisic is Due

Tomorrow is the day Dortmund are finally going to turn it all around. Why? Because Peter Bosz is basically going to get sacked no matter what, because nobody expects anything from Dortmund anymore, because people expect the world out of Bayer Leverkusen given their record at home, and for a number of other reasons. And I might as well give you those reasons: Gotze is out injured, Aubameyang is going to miss the game with a red card, Marc Bartra apparently doesn't know how to play defense, and Dortmund has played horrible second halves lately while Bayer have played incredible second halves. I think that's about it.

All of this has coincided with what one article called a "curse" for Pulisic that's existed since the US failed to qualify for the World Cup. I have just one thing to say about that: Fuck the World Cup. For now. The US was such a bad team, with so many underperforming players, that it was awful to watch them and they didn't deserve to go to the Wo…

Dortmund vs. Hannover preview, Should Pulisic replace Angela Merkel as chancellor of Germany?

Hello Pulisic Fans,

And welcome to the Straight Outta Hershey official preview for the Bundesliga Matchday 10 game between Hannover 96 and Borussia Dortmund. Today's preview will focus heavily on three things: 1) What will happen in the game, 2) What will happen with Christian Pulisic, and 3) Am I moving to Germany?

But first, let's start with a GIF: It's been a quiet half for Christian Pulisic so far, but here is a gif of him faking out 2 #SGE players. #BVB#SGEBVBpic.twitter.com/uMuvGpL5I5 — GolazoJuice (@GolazoJuice) October 21, 2017 I'll give you a moment to collect your jaws off the floor or get the urine out of your boxers or whatever it is you need to do, and then we'll move forward.

....

Good. What's so special about this GIF? The fact that it's really not that special. Pulisic does this kind of stuff all the time. And I love to use italics because they make things so much more dramatic.

But let's get away from Pulisic for just a moment and talk…
