Happy Monday!

Breaking News: Zinedine Zidane is pulling a Jupp Heynckes and coming out of retirement (of sorts) to return to European powerhouse Real Madrid where he won multiple Champions League titles with during the past few years.

Following the embarrassing Champions League series loss against Ajax just last week–highlighted by the 4-1 loss at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium by the team from Amsterdam–coupled with less-than-stellar performances in La Liga this season, Real Madrid has been in veritable crisis mode. It’s the reality of incredibly high expectations for a club that’s been the king of the Champions League with Mr. Zidane as their manager.

And now Real Madrid’s real leader has returned. Of course, winning the Champions League is not an option in 2019. Catching Barcelona, a team that’s 12-points ahead of Real Madrid, for the La Liga title also seems unlikely in 2019. So what’s left?

Mr. Zidane must right the ship immediately by basically winning out the remainder of the 2018/2019 schedule with style and renewed energy while searching for his new Cristiano Ronaldo. Real Madrid will be looking to throw insane amounts of money for its next world-class x-factor. And finding this player where “x marks the spot” will be Mr. Zidane’s greatest challenge.

Oddly enough for Real Madrid, that spot marked by x (well, actually three x’s) may very well be located in Amsterdam. Just ask Barcelona.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week. 

P.S. I  have to say that I called Ajax upsetting Real Madrid in their Champions League series. However, I definitely did not foresee the blowout win that transpired. That was shocking. Who saw that coming? In Madrid no less! Now hopefully Bayern Munich can pull off a similar upset against Liverpool this Wednesday at the Allianz Arena.

Move Over for the Weekend

This is Friday.

It’s Friday and we’ve had enough of all the formalities of the workweek. No tie and no handshake/fist bump is going to happen. What’s more, is that we don’t want to exert any more energy than is absolutely necessary. We are getting ever closer to 5 p.m. and any form of discomfort that will prevent us from sitting in the so-called “luxury suite” will simply have to be endured for the grand prize.

The luxury suite is called the luxury suite for a reason. It’s luxurious. So just try and curb your enthusiasm for the workweek’s luxury suite when it becomes available:

The weekend.

It’s pretty, pretty–you get it.

There’s a Clear Line Between Hunger & Sanity

This is Thursday.

It’s Thursday and we’re ready to fully speak about the issues we feel most passionate about. We are taking a stand. Whether it’s something profound that will transform society like what Larry David’s TV persona is fighting for in the clip above, or I suppose something else, we need to speak up with clear intent and direction. The free-thinking dynamic encouraged by the pending weekend is rising within us today.

The line (so to speak) running parallel to our workweek persona must be expressed in order to counter and juxtapose utter craziness happening around us all.

We’re waiting…

Tapping Into Honesty

This is Wednesday.

Once Wednesday arrives–the middle of the week–we are still trying to hang onto the many formalities associated with the beginning of the workweek. We abide by all the customs and “unwritten” rules of society associated with our individual lives. At the same time, Wednesday is the tipping point of when our minds wander towards the more relaxed, fun-natured anticipation of the pending weekend. Incredibly, we can all pinpoint this feeling, one way or another, relative to ourselves…

with the precision of a steak knife.

P.S. RIP Bob Einstein.
