This imperative mode is better than a bullet list.
Read Zach’s lightning bolt on the Germany-Turkey match.
Read Richard on why Arshavin’s age doesn’t matter.
Read Josh Patashnik’s New Republic piece on the autocratic dark side of the Russian resurgence. Thesis: Abramovich and the oligarchs aren’t funding Russian football because they’re patriots, they’re funding it because they don’t want Putin to treat them like Khodorkovsky. Fun fact: Arshavin has a seat on the St. Petersburg city council!
Finally, read Vanda’s fantastic fever dream on the Spain-Italy match and twentieth-century European war.
