Can’t spell “Footie” without T-I-E

Well, that title is pretty obvious, and I probably used it before. Shock Barclays Premier League champions Leicester City were, well, shocked by recently promoted Hull City, 2-1. #HCvsLC One gorgeous goal and one perfect cleanup strike trumps a PK. You could say that Leicester were Leicestered. #sogoaheadsayit

Leading our enjoyment at the breaks were Robbie Earle & Robbie Mustoe, aka The 2 Robbies (@The2RobbiesNBC) on NBC Sports Network (although, for historical accuracy, I should say that the matches today can be found on CNBC, likely due to the bribes proffered by the then-wealthy Brazilian government to the International Olympic Committee). 

While today was rather muted, it was quite blue in tone, perhaps in honor of Leicester, who find themselves in last place two hours into the new campaign. 

Let’s start with Robbie, version 1.Mustoe.  

You’re hired, kid!

 It’s much better than many of his ensembles from last year. Still, it’s kind of first-job-interview-after-college-y. I’ll save the #dressinthedark hashtag for wintertime, while remaining hopeful that the return of reigning fashion champion Kyle Martino will keep @robbiemustoe trending up-table. 

Heading mid-desk, Robbie Earle has commandeered new Belgium manager Roberto Martinez’s favorite look from this summer’s Euro coverage. 

A mustache-ready look

 This richly textured blue suit (#whyweloveHD) would help any tie pop, and the Earl of Earle shows that he will be up for a fight in this year’s best TV Tie. 

Keep coming back to 100 Days, 100 Ties this season. I’ll have my ties, Mai Tais, political ties, sports ties, friends’ ties…plus I’ll be giving away 100 (#atleast) of them, hopefully with your help.

Thanks for reading…Brooke
