Checkpoint: Manchester Derby 2015 Edition

European soccer is reaching the home stretch. It seems like nearly every weekend is a big deal these days. This weekend I witnessed Barcelona drop points and allow Real Madrid inch closer to them. I didn’t get to watch it but Chelsea continued to grind out wins with surprisingly low win differentials. I even watched a bit of Hamburger vs Wolfsburg because I was bored. However, the star attraction of the weekend was the Manchester Derby today.

I was hoping Manchester City would return to form and take the win but that wasn’t the case at all. They started well with a beautiful goal in the early stages of the game but then the wheels came off and United steamrolled them. I have an irrational dislike for Manchester United. I don’t hate them per se; I hate how the media continues to pick apart every little thing about the game. They’re like the Toronto Maple Leafs, Los Angeles Lakers and New York Yankees — I get it but it doesn’t mean I have to like it. Fortunately unlike those teams that I mentioned, it looks like Manchester United are living up to the attention.

I finished Bloodborne. I don’t know if I’m actually done with the game but I am putting it down for now. I’m diverting my attention to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past which I’m not enjoying whatsoever. It’s an annoying game to play and it’s because of how the game controls. I can move in eight directions but I can’t reliably attack in eight directions which irks me. I know it’s the old but I’m coming from having finished The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds first.
