Watching Brazil roll over Spain to win Confederation Cup, 3-0. I also smiled at the fact that one of the players from Brazil is actually named, Hulk. No word on whether he is incredible.

They ran over them with a lot of help from the ref who was obviously scared of the crowd. I saw at least four yellow cards plus what looked like two more that weren't given.I'm not surprised that Spain was discombobulated, Brazilians kept running up the backs of their legs and the ref looked the other way.

I don't know why they do it, they have the ability to win without the fouling and the over-acting.

Nice.

I have a bunch of .gif files my buddy made of Bristol and the surrounding area that merge old and new. It's interesting to see how much has changed, but also (moreso?) how much has not.

I like the more so bit. It's one of the things that I miss in this country, the possibility of walking around, sitting, standing, seeing etc. in spots where others did the same so long before.

I believe that was an opening ceremony for the park.

Or someone was selling icecream.
