I am watching here the Mexican channel as I couldn't find an American station....
In Mexico City 200 fans got stranded as their promoter disappeared with
the money they've paid for 2 weeks South Africa - each fan paid $ 20,000
for flights and accommodations. Poor guys!

@CalamityJane,
aaiiiii, have they send the amateurs there? Both sides have had so many
opportunities to score, and they're just passing up on it - over and over again.

Diego Forlan had his chances, but could not put a bulge in the onion bag.

Was the South Africa-Mexico game better played and more entertaining than France-Uruguay, or is it my bias?

I only saw a moment or two of each game in passing.

I have a strong desire to smear arsenic on the mouth end of every plastic
horn in South Africa.

Actually, the missus wanted to toot the horn here as well .... but then she decided to turn down the tv-tone. And not to toot.
So we could watch the matches on the same tv in the same room ...

@fbaezer,
Not at all: she started with such four years ago, did so during the the European Championship ... But since she's supporting the wrong football team as well, what else can you expect?

I fell asleep during the later game. Does that answer your question?!

As I'd thought: an ageing German manager without ideas isn't any help for the Greek team ... (And I'll bet that "Emperor Otto" isn't the Greek manager anymore within days.)

It's a Zulu/Bantu word, used for these horns since they came (here in the early 2000's). Since it's controversial use during the last European Champioship, many cities and towns have by-laws, forbbidding it's use ... at public viewings these days. (Like where I live and in some dozen other communities in our state; some allow them.)

Hate hate hate.

Coaches cant communicate with players, players cant communicate with other players. The games sounds like a week old wombat carcass infested with blowflies.

@CalamityJane,
hehehe

they're still in the early stages of popularity here, so we're still amused by them

hmmm, or maybe not so much early stages as just not used that much so they're a bit of a novelty

in any case, Torontonians find them amusing
