Friends, loves, enemies: it has come to my attention that soccer is a sport that people play and sometimes they are very good at it and sometimes they also have great hair and sometimes they also tell the President to go fuck himself and sometimes I fall completely in love with them and then I suddenly care about the sportsball! (Specifically, at the moment, the one with feet.) It is a SHOCKING turn of events for me personally, but I am rolling with it! Much like the US team rolled straight into the final, which is on SUNDAY at EIGHT O’CLOCK IN THE MORNING and I will be CAMPING and I have yet to determine where I will WATCH it!
But I digress.

Potato the Corgi is having her MOMENT in this week’s Insta Crush. (Also: Potato’s instagram name is Potato_Corgo and I now regularly forget whether the name for that breed is corgi or corgo, so here we are!)
Sue Bird wrote about her girlfriend, Megan Rapinoe, who is “at the boss level in the video game of knowing herself,” which is literally all I have ever wanted for myself and which also immediately makes her like eight times more attractive to me, and like it’s fine! We’re all fine. Nobody crying around here.
Rachel answered this question and I’m sure the answer was brilliant, but also I couldn’t read it, because just the headline gave high school Queer Girl immediate hives: Yes, Virginia, You Can Date Your Best Friend You’re Secretly in Love With (At Least, In Theory).
Molly went to Pride and took some photos! You are all perfect, ya know that?
