roman abramovich

In case you were wondering why Chelsea Owner Roman Abramovich did not attend Chelsea’s FA Cup final win over Manchester United in London yesterday, it’s because he cannot legally enter the country right now. His United Kingdom visa expired in April, and according to multiple reports, he’s experiencing a delay in renewal.

It is the policy of the government agency that handles processing visas to not comment on reasons for delay. However, given that Abramovich is now based in London, is Britain’s 13th richest man according to the Sunday Times with £9.3bn, and tensions escalating between Great Britain and Ambramovich’s native Russia, this is obviously a major news development.

The Royal Wedding as a “news story” is the biggest nothing burger of all nothing burgers, but what can you do? This endeavor, for some reason, is considered worth paying attention to by millions of people all around the world, who have never met Harry or Meghan.
Meghan Markle, today, is now one of the world’s most famous people. The Northwestern grad who played annoying characters and really bad television shows has truly come a very long way. In 2013, when College Gameday came to NU and Markle was referenced in signs, as Rachel Markle, we were all like “who?”

When the Reds boss first heard about Brexit in June 2016, he thought that Britain exiting Europe meant that the England national team had been eliminated from the European championships.That’s how shocked he was to hear that the Brexit voted actually passed, because the concept of it made no sense to him.

Back on January 30, Chelsea Owner Roman Abramovich was been named to the United States Treasury Department’s Russian Oligarchs list, dubbed by many observers as the “Putin list.”

This list, with 210 names on it, includes 96 oligarchs with a net worth or more than $1 billion (£710 million) and very close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin. While Abramovich, and the other names on the list, weren’t sanctioned at the time that this list was announced, it did serve as a prelude to potential economic sanctions.

What might be just the first wave of sanctions got announced today, and Roman Abramovich, surprisingly, was escaped unscathed.

Mohamed Salah Heroics Inspiring Fans to Convert to Islam

Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah is developing into a superstar this season, and he’s now currently the front-runner to win PFA Player of the Year. His game winning goal today, in a 2-1 come-from-behind triumph at Crystal Palace, saw his tying Chelsea legend Didier Drogba for the most single season goals (29) scored by an African player in Premier League history.

Remember, the Reds still have six league games to go. Not bad for a player once tossed aside by Chelsea. Salah’s overall total of 37 goals across all competitions is also the most in a single season by a Liverpool player in the Premier League era, beating Robbie Fowler’s total of 36 in 1995-96.

Warning: the following post will subject you, the reader, to extremely high levels of cognitive dissonance. The New England Patriots are now wearing the white cowboy hat, instead of the black one; at least temporarily.

You may think the Patriots are the bad guys, but on this issue, the one that matters the most right now in America, they are on the right side of history. Over the weekend, the New England Patriots loaned their team plane to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students and their families who traveled to Washington, D.C., for the March For Our Lives rally.

As conservative pundit David Frum indicated, this is exactly what social change looks like.
