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.
