On This Day in Football: Irishman becomes first international manager - originally posted on Sportslens.com On this day in 1897, Ireland became the first national team to play under an official manager. Back then, national teams were selected by their country’s respective Football Associations and coached by the team’s captain. But Ireland broke the norm in 1897 by appointing Billy Crone as their manager. Crone, a former defender who played for Irish club Distillery and was now the manager of the club, was approached for the managerial role which he gladly accepted.

This time around it was all about the skating for French ice dancers Guillaume Cizeron and Gabriella Papadakis. After making headlines worldwide for a wardrobe malfunction during the short dance Monday afternoon, which aired Sunday night stateside, the duo competed the following day without a similar distraction, earning silver in a skate declared one for the history books.

Happy Presidents’ Day! Meet the five most underrated American presidents

Politics
The institution of the presidency’s had a bad year. With a few exceptions, Donald Trump makes all of his predecessors look good. There was a time when the President of the United States did not spend hours at a time watching cable news. Or when they didn’t compare the size of their, um, “Nuclear Button” to that of other foreign leaders. At least in recent decades, there was also a time when the White House’s immigration policies weren’t guided by white nationalists. Happy Presidents’ Day! Meet The Five Most Overrated American Presidents Yet America’s also had very bad presidents long before our “very stable genius” kinda sorta won a presidential election.
