Things I Know And Things I Think About The World Cup

A bunch of teams are playing and someone will probably win.

I believe that there will be a film about at least one country too poor to afford real balls to practice with and so they kick at the air valiantly. They dream their round little dreams until they nearly make it to the semi-finals.

I laughed at this post until the tears came. Seriously, dale, that was the funniest damn thing. Also true, but mostly hilarious.

And damn if I don't ingest enough European podcasts to hear about every other damned game...I make a point of avoiding sports in the States, and I'm now going to end up with a nodding acquaintance to Euro-Sports obsessions against my will.

We have taken to watching every now and then in the hopes that one of those famous Euro futbol spectator riots breaks out.

(Damn, that was wordy. Sorry 'bout that.)

I knew the raw sex appeal of me talking about balls would get through to someone Beth!

Chelene - every time you laugh, an angel drops her harp on her foot and then I laugh. Good going.

You'll be a hooligan and not even know why Mob.

Riots!? After Indy crashes, they're my favourite sport.
