WorldCup Ramblings Saturday June 24, 2006

So after 29 hours in front of the Television, here’s a few observations about the world cup.

First – The more and more I watch the Brazilian team, the more I have to admit that Ronaldinho looks like Jar-Jar Binks.

Second – I think the main reason there was so much infighting in the Swedish dressing room was because half the team looks like some god awful emo band.


Look at the poor guy, with hair like that he should be writing horrible lyrics about his ex-girlfriend rather than taking corners. He’s got that ‘If this thing goes in I’m gonna have to write some horrible poetry on my myspace account’ expression on his face.

Third – I appreciate that the Drum & Monkey and the Ship and Anchor are showing all the games, but after my fifth helping of New Castle, rashers, tomatoes, brown sauce and blood pudding, I think I’m gonna have an aneurysm. I love a soccer breakie every once in a while and the camaraderie of watching the game with some ex-pats, but after three weeks my bowels are killing me.

Fourth – Those over sized Adidas jerseys for Argentina and Germany are horrible. After watching the Mexico/Argentina game yesterday, with Mexico’s slick kits, Argentina just looked like a bunch of rolly-polly fat kids in over sized striped t-shirts. Like that fat kid Pablo, who always got picked last during practise. Sure Mexico lost the game, but they went down in style.

See I rest my case.
