Aww, doggie!! Good to see you, and may I say you look great! Too bad Canada isn't paticipating. But I guess the team whose colors you're wearing will be doing their very best.

Man, a generally respected and objective journalist on the radio has been whining for what seems like HOURS about how the vuvuzelas detracted from his enjoyment of the games, and how it's not fair, he had been expecting this moment for 4 years and now he can't concentrate on the games because....blah blah blah! Make him stop!

Or I could just turn off the radio...

Uh-oh it's Marvin the the paranoid Android...and how depressed he is looking at the football. I guess that's not the best omen for the US-Team.

Well, they are playing England tomorrow, that's tough. But, dear Americans, don't let that bring you down. Remember 2:0 against Spain!

Surely they can control input volume from the crowd, then it wouldn't be worse than a hum?

I did find it annoying too. It reminded me too much of our old hockey crowds. Thankfully the kids today don't like that racket either...

No, there wasn't. And trust me, if my generation could undo that dark part of our past, we would.

There was a World Cup in 1954 though.

And Sweetpea, you really should get dressed, the Oranjes are such a great team!!

As much as I wanted to, I couldn't vote for England, on the basis that sooner or later, they will face a penalty shootout...

I just hope that no team with a cattenacio playing style wins the cup I voted for Spain as they really play wonderful soccer these years and well-deserved won the UEFA Euro...
