Okay, so the CL draw for Ajax is brutal this year (again (some more)). I am really, really not a fan of the defeatist let's-try-for-third-place rhetoric, but in this case? Honestly, I don't think it'd actually be defeatist. It'd be an accomplishment, even finishing third in this group. But who knows, really?
(And can anybody explain to me why there was only one group we could be drawn into? I totally don't understand how that works, and yes, I am too lazy to go find out myself. :P)
In other news, I've given myself the challenge to get over my (really baseless, even for me)
hatred antipathy for Andy Murray. I'd already promised myself to do that after Wimbledon, but then at the Olympic semifinal, I totally failed at doing so. (For what it's worth, it's been largely about contrariness towards the BBC, from a couple years ago when I watch a single match of his there and got pissed off, so, you know, that's a great basis for dislike. Yup. Also, I hated his hair.)
Mind, the challenge is not to go and like him, and I reserve the right to still bitch if he nabs this title; I just have to not hate him. It's... going.
