Huge day for the Arsenal World Cup Squad. Come on you Gunners!
The first three African teams have all impressed even though they are 0-3 and have only scored 1 goal, which is ironic but true. Will South Korea need a phantom 12th man on the pitch like last time around?
Who is Kim Jong-Il rooting for? Is he the typical SEC fan, who roots hard for his hated rivals in their bowl games to re-enforce his feeling that his part of the world is the best? Or is he like me, the total opposite SEC fan, who because of his dislike for said rivals roots for this to happen to all of them because it will help his school in recruiting and over time allow his team to become more stronger vis a vis its
6.08 a.m. - I thought Brasil played at noon? Oh, nevermind. When you're on 2 hours sleep, these two sets of uniforms are all you can ask for.
6.54 - L'Afrique is straight representin'. That was a GOLASO; here's hoping they can keep it up and shock the 2002 semifinalists. Oh, and although not mullet related, #14 for SK is pretty epic - looks like an Ali G charachter or something. What is he rocking there? Cato Kaelin with a Kung Fu Theatre moustache?
7.12 - 2nd time the red mist has descended on Deutschland (this time it was clearly deserved). Still no penalties, which is suprising now that we are 11.5 matches in...
7.13 - 1-1. What a free kick by Kato. Is that a wig? And why is his midsection dark purple with a giant black V drawn on it in Sharpie? Is he a superhero? WTF? Can Togo pull a T&T and hang on for 36 minutes with 10 men?
7.31 - 2-1 SK. Another great goal, but damn it, is Africa going to go to 0-4 despite winning respect and admiration for their play and never say die attitude? Best start to a major tournament ever in terms of well taken goals and general lack of negative play? Umm, yes. Allez les maillots jaunes!
7.47 - Yet another contender for the best non-mullet crazy hair category emerges in Togo substitute #6. Is that headband a... tape-measure? That dude for Angola who rocks the 2002Ronaldo meets Frank Rikjard is starting to shift uncomfortably in his seat just a little bit.
South Korea 2-1 Togo.
Back to court for Jury Duty, The Odyssey: Day 2. Enjoy France-Switzerland; I'll be rocking the courtroom with my blue France kit, Euro 2000 version...
I am sure that Henry regularly abuses talented youngsters Phillipe Senderos & Johan Djourou in practice. Can he do it today?
Will Zizou pass him the ball, and will he score from that pass, allegedly for the first time ever?
Will Vieira be the "When I'm in the mood I'm the best defensive midfielder in the world, but don't really feel like trying 100% today" PV4 or the "When I'm in the mood I'm the best defensive midfielder in the world, and I am going to boss the shit out of this match and no one and nothing can stop my indomitable will" PV4? I think you know which one I'm rooting for (scroll all the way to the bottom, but stop to view that Henry wondergoal, unless of course your name is Moin).
If anyone in your office is Brasilian, do not expect to see them at work today.
Not sure if anyone has told you, but Brasil is pretty good.
Oh, and they play futbol the complete and total right way according to HP & CFR, and if you disagree with their notion of the right way then they will defend Joga Bonito to the fucking hilt while
