World Cup things, MLS All-Star jerseys, and more: Freedom Kicks for 6/19/18

Also, RIP Walter Bahr.

You guys having fun during this World Cup so far? I know that I am, minus that little blip on Sunday when Germany lost to Mexico (on my birthday, by the way, VIELEN DANK DEUTSCHLAND). And did I block off time on my calendar at work so people don’t try to schedule meetings with me during games? Me? Of course not.

Anyway, let’s get to those Freedom Kicks.

Genuine question: Is it just me or have there been a lot of penalties so far? Am I inflating the number in my head? Is it always this many? Yes, I know I could look up this information myself. Yes, I’m still not doing that and posing the question to all of you.

That’s all from me, folks! Now let’s go watch some World Cup (or do whatever you want, I support you and your free will).
