THE Game: USA v. England
For all our faults (picking fights with countries we have no business invading, FOX News and Texas), I think I'd like to live no where else. America is for idealists, and I'm a repeat offender. :)
I'm happy with the 1-1 draw. It might as well have been a win after all that trash talking the English did. I think the US deserves come good respect, even if the issue was goalie Green's butterfingers.
Have I mentioned how much I love frilly, sparkly toothpicks? Thank you, Jo-Ann etc., for having a 50% off sale on patriotic toothpicks.
Coming up: Germany v. Australia. I don't think they carry Vegemite at our local grocer, so we're going to go German - schnitzel, herb spaetzle, braised cabbage and apples. There might be some cherry turnover in there...you never know.
UPDATE: Ghana just beat Serbia, 1-0. Definitely the most exciting game so far.
