@Thomas,
O why should the spirit of mortal be proud, in this little voyage from swaddle to shroud?

A couple of more games to go until WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!

The two previous posts show what football can do to you.
It can turn two very rational German posters into something not far from the most irrational human being that can be found on earth: the English football fan.
The only traceable difference is that English fans are also delusional.

@CalamityJane,
A bit of a thread diversion I just ran across - 26 football photos from Magnum, via Slate.com:

Liar! you not one bit sorry.

We were outclassed on the field and out coached off the field.

We shall return

For at least a couple more.
I'd hate to draw Germany for the first game.

@dadpad,
After watching both D Group games yesterday, I'd say Australia has a fair chance to go through, if they can get over the psychological blow of the 0-4. Serbia and Ghana played awfully.

No change in the standings.
This has not been a strikers' World Cup, so far.

1. Calamity Jane 3 points
2. fbaezer 2
2. ossobuco 2
2. Robert Gentel 2
5. 9 players tied with 0 points

@fbaezer,
There has been much criticism about the Adidas designed ball used in this World Cup...not only from teams that have lost or tied but also from those that have won or tied. Evidently there are deep grooves that cause it to go unpredictably off course.
The English goalie who badly flubbed the kick from the U.S. declined to blame the ball but did say he had never missed one by so much. And the American striker said that the ball did not go quite where he had expected it to.

@realjohnboy,
Mexican goalies trained today with American footballs (you know, the ovoidal ones), to feel more at ease with the Jabulani.

Thereby hangs many a sad tale.

@spendius,
It went in, much to the dismay of your English goalie.

Nothing moves on the scoreboard. Let's see if the Spanish Armada can do something about it.

On an aside, the Slovaks were certainly a let down.
I mean, you can't be such conformists.
The Kiwi goal was a fit punishment for their sluggish attitude.

@fbaezer,
13 of us have Villa (Spain). Only George does not have him on his roster.

@fbaezer,
I must admit that .... well, it wasn't very exciting, so far. (Besides one single team, I mean Wink )

Yes. South Korea were very convincing (that is who you're talking about, right? Wink )
