There’s always something fantastic about the last day of the season, when, having successfully avoided relegation or perhaps even won something, footballers are joined on the pitch by their families in the brilliant spring sunshine. Social media has given us a glimpse into the lives of professional athletes, but there’s something poignantly visceral about these pitchside moments.
Perhaps it has to do with the famous Bobby Robson quote about what exactly a club is supposed to represent:
Hello Folks. Lets send our thoughts to Chelsea. Their brutal schedule continues after playing Barcelona and Manchester United back to back, the Blues have Man City and Barcelona next on their slate. It's Oscars week! Lets get to our leading roles you could use your transfer on.

For those of you who only care about sports in which one is not allowed to use one's hands, the Super Bowl was played Sunday. The Philadelphia Eagles won, which is noteworthy only because the Eagles' starting tight end, Zach Ertz, is the husband of USWNT and Chicago Red Stars midfielder Julie Ertz.
You can see how hyped Julie Ertz was for the game here, as she's shown doing the "fly, Eagles, fly" motion.
