Leading Off (8/7/23)

It's not hot. That's just what they* want you to think. (*every system of your body)

FC Dallas Falls to Lionel Messi and Inter Miami in Penalty Shootout. Did Messi live up to the hype? Oh, I don’t know. The first time the ball touched his foot, he casually hit a perfectly weighted 40-yard pass that couldn’t have landed any better at his teammate’s foot if he dropped it from six inches away. The second time, he scored. Still, FC Dallas looked to have the game in hand, going up 3-1 and then 4-2. But Messi would not be denied and sent it to penalties with a frankly insane free kick. Mike will have more on this over on StrongSide in a bit.

OK, It Is Still Hot. Another week of garbage! At least! Monday will make 15 triple-digit highs in a row. Fun! It also stays hot all night. That’s new!

Greg Abbott Will Be in Denton Today. So maybe you might feel a chill in the air after all.
