Soccer for Lunch
Thanks to some creative trial scheduling, I was able to enjoy the 2nd half of the Australia/Italy World Cup match today.
Awesome effort by the Italians, playing one man down for nearly all of the 2nd half, only to win the game on a penalty kick called with only seconds remaining in stoppage time.
Congrats, I-ties! You should be through to the final four.
Like Nathan Moore, I am firmly in the English camp. As a former resident, I used to cheer for the White Lions when Gary Lineker was king. Since the U.S. team gave the worst American performance in Germany since David Hasselhoff's last tour, I'm back to cheering for the Brits.
