Retro Hippie

I've decided to become a new age retro hippie.

World Cup - Final Post

The Italians have played better, and as much as I don't like the French team they played a better a game. But, Zidane's an asshole and I had to suffer an Italian loss in shootouts to Brazil in '94, so I am excited to announce that the Italians are the new World Champions.

World Cup - Post 3

I'm not as big of an Italian fan as I thought. Germany lost and I'm upset. I'm still rooting for the Italian team, but my enthusiasm for the Cup has waned. Luckily I missed the painful loss in the final minutes of overtime, I was making a cake. I would have loved to see the Germans crush the French. They still can if France loses to Portugal. Go Portugal! Now, don't be thinking I dislike the French and that I am a freedom fry loser. I just don't like the team. Well, I'm much to upset to write more. See you the tomorrow if the French choke.

World Cup - Post 2

HA, Post 1. I thought I would have at least 5 by this point. Oh well, things are better in small doses anyway, and you certainly get that with The Torch Carrying Mob. I am very pleased with semi-final lineup. While my two favorites will have to battle it out, at least one of them will make it to the final. I couldn't ask for more. But even better is that Brazil is out of there. Zero, nothing, nada for the little Selecaos this time around. Yes, they are a good team, and yes, they are the true soccer artists (see Post 1 where I attribute it to the Italians); but they've won 2 of last 4 and they've come to expect at least making it to the semi. It's fun watching them suffer, especially Ronaldinho.

Yep, you lost

As far the Italy v. Germany game, I'm all for the Germans. The World Cup is the only event where my ancestral loyalties surface. I don't know why really. I still find the Italians sexier, if that is anything.

See you after Tuesday.
