In that time, he has come of the bench twice and netted an incredible 5 goals – or a goal every 10 minutes! Before heading to Dortmund, Haaland was wearing Nike boots.

I also was excited to get my first HPV vaccine thanks to the CDC’s age limit changes last winter, and I needed a pap, also overdue by half a year.

Laceless Boots; Is it Time to Move On?

Can I get something off my chest that might seem controversial, but I’m pretty sure some of you will agree with? Laceless boots need to become a thing of the past!
