Liverpool's Blue Dagger

Chelsea ace Christian Pulisic was at it again on Wednesday night, scoring for the second game in a row to to spark a 2-1 win over Manchester City. It wasn't just his seventh of the EPL season and the rubber stamp on a Man of the Match showing. The goal also clinched Liverpool's first league title in three decades.

Yeeeeah, I'm gonna need one of those.

Or maybe two, so I have a fresh one when I wear the first out.

And you don't know Black Pumas, dear heavens, what are you waiting for? Check 'em out. Now. Then you'll know how cool Austin FC's second celebrity fan is.

"I want to go to there."

Given all the food and soccer clips in my history, it really came as no surprise that I happened upon a couple of noice videos with Adam Richman profiling the fine eats available at MLS pre-game tailgates.

The first one I caught was showing off LAFC's homemade grub wares. Okay, yum.

Next up was Montreal. And a reminder not to watch such things when I'm hungry. Because then food needs to be eaten, stat. You killed me, Montreal. I can't wait to find out where the series will turn up next.

Look Who's Back x2

He hasn't played in about six months, but you'd never know it. Christian Pulisic returned to the Chelsea fold on Sunday and made a difference in their 2-1 win at Aston Villa. He bagged his sixth of the EPL season (and seventh overall this term) a mere moment after coming on to begin the rally.

And just to put things in Blues perspective...

Meanwhile, Kenny Saief opened his account with loan employers Lechia Gdańsk by cracking a nifty lone goal winner at Pogoń Szczecin. The points pulled them to within shouting distance of a Europa League slot with five games remaining.

McKennie, in the box, with his head.

Yep, Schalke youngster Weston McKennie is heading toward "can't stop scoring" territory. He nodded home (again) for Schalke's lone tally in a 2-1 loss at Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday. Meant to get it up last night, but conked out after dinner. You know how it goes.
