Happy Thursday, everyone. First off, peace to everyone in Florida who was in the path of Hurricane Ian yesterday. Hopefully all fared okay and are out of harm’s way. Peace to Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina, who will feel Ian’s wrath in the coming days.
Arsenal FC, Real Madrid, Juventus, and PSG are among the teams who reached the group stage of the 2022-23 UEFA Women’s Champions League after qualifying wins yesterday. 2 more teams today will round out the field of 16.

MLS does a stock watch of all the USMNT players after this dismal international window.
Yo, you know what I was doing at 13? Not playing professional soccer. This is wild.
John Mikel Obi has retired from soccer, and boy was he fun to watch throughout the years. Hats off for a great career.
Stay dry this weekend!
