World cups

I went to Cologne last weekend excited by the prospect of the Chile-Germany match, but the game was cancelled because the German goalkeeper commited suicide! You chose just the right time, dickhead! If hell exists, I hope you are suffering there... I will write about the Cologne trip in the forthcoming State of Mind post. To alleviate the lack of football, I shall devote a whole post to football... I am going to go through every world cup to evaluate which was the best team... because the best team doesn't always win... I have all this knowledge of football after having obssessively read about it during my childhood.....

We can all light a candle for poor Simon at World Cup time when Chile gets eviscerated, toppling out of the tournament in the first round not having scored a goal.

Poor fellow. I know aaaalllll about supporting crappy sports teams.

Jenny: It makes me laugh that it made you laugh.

Pahprint: This Chilean team is far from 'crappy'! Chile are the dark horses of the tournament, they will give everyone a nasty shock!
