This is embarrassingly overdue, but I just wanted to thank my friends—Pete L'Official, Piotr Orlov, Anmol Chaddha, Chris Ryan, Bethlehem Shoals and Eugene Kuo—for their incredible contributions during the World Cup.

And, apropos of nothing: a pretty cool article on Jean Cocteau's brief career managing a boxer.
