Morning, Mane Landers, I hope those tryptophan food comas have finally worn off and you are gearing up for a lovely day of dealing with the hordes and throngs of Black Friday shoppers, throwing fists and elbows to make sure they get that new Tickle Me Elmo. In case you aren’t planning on dealing with the crowds, please allow us to bring you the most delicious Thanksgiving leftovers for your interweb perusing pleasure.
But before we dive right in, let’s take a moment to recognize today’s date as the day The Mane Land made the move to SB Nation in 2014. It has been a great three years covering our three teams here in Orlando and hopefully we have many more years ahead of us here at SBN.
Pulis Ready for Everything

Diego Maradona Wants Back In
Whether you know his name as one of the best footballers in history, being sent home due to failing a drug test, or from the “hand of god” goal, Maradona is a name that always elicits some emotion when heard. Chances are, we might see more of the Argentine legend soon, as he may be a figure on Argentina’s bench soon. His coaching record isn’t stellar, but his charisma cannot be questioned.
- Well, I think we can put the Robinho rumors out to pasture now.
- Could some rewriting of MLS rules keep talent within MLS? Would it make the league better to open up the transfer rules within the league?
- And since the gluttonous mistakes of yesterday will be made again today, I give you this gem for your ear-holes:
