Ansu Fati for a short while
My head is full of fabulous accounts and all the deep issues of the day that you come here to read about. On any other day there would be
(some people say wisdom should be spoken softly, but I like to yell it in the hope that I'll hear it)
But instead, today, I just want to say "Ansu Fati" as often as possible.

I'm glad you've asked me about Ansu Fati.
Thank you for asking me about Ansu Fati.
Ansu Fati is a 16 year old soccer prodigy who was plucked from the obscurity of, I don't know, High School, I guess, his local swimming pool?, to play for Barcelona F.C., the best football club in the world this year (we're hoping).
Before one could blink, this lad, Ansu Fati, scored two glorious goals and a sublime assist and all of Spain whispered "Ansu Fati". They yelled it too.
They were trying to be wise.
Sixteen years old and 318 days to score first team goals!
Just sixteen years 318 days old!
Why, that is younger than...
that's younger than Ansu Fati is now.
