If you’re anything like me, and my goodness let’s hope not, you’re right in the middle of a love/hate relationship with summer.

Summer is, in many ways, amazing. I prefer no snow to snow, I prefer golfing to not golfing, I prefer sun to endless overcast dreariness. And yet, it’s not a perfect season. There are few things worse than having to wear a suit and tie on a humid Tuesday in July, for example. I do not deal well with heat. I sunburn easily. I don’t like to swim. (All totally universal complaints, I’m sure, and not just me complaining about things that only I would complain about.) There’s also the thin sports calendar, which I complain about in this space often (and which you’re likely tired of reading.)

In any case, the point is that summer is, generally, a good season. But that doesn’t make it easier to see a Monday weather forecast of 100 degrees.

The match ended up being played at breakneck speed, but neither side could find a winner, despite a fantastic extra-time effort from Argentina’s Sergio Aguero that required a superhuman save:
