Atlanta United players received their championship rings today in what looked to be a light-hearted ceremony on a recovery day after last night’s second leg win/elimination against CF Monterrey in the Concacaf Champions League.
I like this a lot. It reminds me of the perfunctory end-of-coach-pitch-baseball season party. Fun!

My second favorite thing is how they all get their picture taken at the end like their holding a diploma, except they’re holding a my personal net-worth’s amount of diamonds and a bottle of rye whiskey.
