Romário, who’s probably still trying to pad his goal total in Turkmenistan, was born in 1966. If “Dixie Pratt” (-_-) is really 19, then she was born …
Really makes you wonder what this conversation was about. Actually, no. I don’t want to know. In fact, I’ll assume it’s nothing anyone should know, ever.

At the same time, this whole Romário business has me very conflicted. While searching for Romário images for this story, I came across a ton of pictures and stories that make him seem like a pretty good guy. He’s served in Brazil’s congress and spoke out against the country’s expenditures in the lead up to the World Cup. He spearheaded a program that gave 500 tickets to every World Cup match to handicapped fans and low-income families. He’s a big family man, and that picture with his PYT (still nasty) is from a big trip to Aruba with seemingly every smiling person he knows.
Damn. This job is hard sometimes. I have to get these jokes off, but Romário might be some kind of superhero. I can’t clown him like this.
After seeing his other side, how can I mention how gross it is that he might be taking Young Dixie out for Happy Meals? How does Grant Wahl deal with shit like this?
I don’t have answers. All I know is this song will be in my head for the rest of the night.
