HAMSTERDAM IS CELEBRATING RAGNAROK

Happy Ragnarok, y'all! Per NPR:

Steel your nerves, dear reader. Ragnarok, the Viking apocalypse, draws near.

According to Norse mythology, the end of times has been brewing for about 100 days. It all started when the wolf son of Loki broke out of prison and the giant Midgard Serpent rose from the sea.

Saturday, Ragnarok will culminate in an epic battle. The pantheon of Norse gods - Thor, Loki, Odin, Freyr, Hermóðr, every last god - will fight, the Earth will fall into the sea, and life as we know it will cease to be.

WELP.

Thanks a lot, Loki.

Happy end of the world! (Or, you know, not.)

While you wait for the battle of the gods to swallow up all life on earth, you can at least watch some TV. There's plenty of soccer on USA and Premier League Extra Time. The US is playing for a dumb old bronze medal in hockey on NBC Sports. And there's plenty of other Olympic action on NBC Sports and NBC all day.

Oh, and more college basketball than you can shake a stick at on ESPN, CBS, etc. The Duke-Syracuse game is probably the main attraction (6 PM CT, ESPN); if it's anything like their first game, it'll be a doozy.

The usual rules apply.
