Blowing Hot and Cold
Yeah I'm probably going to sidle on the sofa and possibly drop off whilst it's on.Cheers:)
My Beloved doesn't get to watch till he gets home from work tonight. By then, we'll have all lost interest (including him!)
I'm switching between a Spanish station (which is showing the US vs Algeria game) and a sports station (which is showing the England vs Slovenia game).I'm not normally a soccer fanatic, but the lure of world competition is too much to ignore. I can't resist the excitement!Oh! Yellow card on that Algerian cheater! I hope he gets his a$$ kicked!
I hope England has replaced that goalie from the US game!
Do you know I've even got the game on in the other room - just to show willing and all that. Atm it's cheers not tears - on verra.
Indeed! At the moment it's 1-0 to England!!!Sx
I'm gonna blow my vuvuzela until our boys do the business. We're coming home we're coming home footballs coming home
Better not blow the vuvuzelas too hard cos Pat is snoozing...*Tiptoes out*Sx
Willing, as in "willing suspension of disbelief"?
England won by 4 wickets. That's the Aussies beaten in all 3 versions of the great game this year.
I slept through the goal but was awake all during the second half screaming like a banshee.The lady vanishes:)
It's brilliant out shopping when the footie's on
I'm scared to watch - and I live a couple of hundred miles north of the border....
Go UK! Go U.S.! Woo hoo! All the results I was hoping for. Who know soccer could be this interesting?
Nothing could go wrong, your fat bearded chum is wearing his no.10 shirt, like a magnificent Pavarooney.Not enjoying the beautiful game though should worry you, for if you artistic types fail to appreciate the majesty of the spectacle, the intense drama, the primordial tribe dynamic, it's a pretty poor show.As things turned out, the England game was one of high spirits, followed by that growing sense of tension and dread which has become our signature.The America game though was a classic, bad refereeing decisions and the USA going home feeling cheated, until that is, in extra time, that moment of euphoria oft repeated in movies, victory snatched from the jaws of defeat. Fantastic.And because we qualified, we'll get to go through it all again.
So who do we play next then?
I believe they're goinf to change the name from 3 Lions to 3 Tampons, 'cos they've never been through such a bad period before.
I see the Premier Inn chain has banned guests from using vuvuzelas because they stop the staff from sleeping.
The shops were lovely and empty this afternoon. I don't like football or footballers or vuvuzelas but I do like the little knickers they are selling with the England flag on the bum.
Isn't it over yet?
I'm still watching THAT tennis match...
Just learned that the next game could be fairly interesting.
I made myself scarce for the football, though had to make my way through the heaving masses of Ingerland supporters on the way home. You'd have thought we'd already won the bloody thing (we didn't make that sort of brouhaha in 1966, I can tell you!)But the good news, as Dave says, is that we're upsetting the Aussies in the game that counts.
Ha ha ha!!! Yes Mr Mags - we are playing Germany next!Roadshow, you make a very good point.... and Mr Chairman, I will spend the rest of the day groaning...I am also praying that ITV 3 don't run out of episodes of Lewis before the end of the summer...and Julia... where is your profile...???I am away today.Sxxx
Dear Scarlet, since the South Sandwich Islands couldn't qualify for the championship, I'm supporting Spain (The Reds). They're not doing very well for the moment, so if they lose their next match, I doubt between Germany and the UK... what would you recommend?Leni Q.
Sorry, England.Leni Q.
You people are a noisy bunch, aren't you ?
kin hell i have jaw ache from blowing my vuvuzela but luckily it did the trickI am exhausted will have a nap
I think I would rather lose the next game against Germany than win and then lose the next to Argentina... It would break my heart to see that little horrible drug crazed dwarf cheat Maradona beat England. At least we are used to losing to the Germans.
I don't know what's worse the footie or Big Brother.
Tears By [Sunday]Teatime?
Definitely tears before sunday tea time Tony.Now then Mr Cool, I'll have you know that Big Brother is the highlight of my evening entertainment.My next post could quite possibly be about Big Brother.Watch this space.Sx
Isn't this tennis season ?Or golf at a royal and ancient course with no vuvublooddynoisythingamyjigs
In about an hour, the Rugby will be on telly...
*slinks off because she's not following the World Cup, or any other ball game*
I usually sleep in til noon on Sundays, but I'm up early to watch the England vs Germany game going on right now!Whoooo! Hooooo! If I had a vuvuzela, I'd blow on it now! Mind if I blow on yours?
Shhhhh....There might well be a few grumpy men walking the streets later...Sx
It's all gone horribly wrong Miss Scarlet :-(
The only ball game I enjoy is pinball.
[brings box of chocolates]I think it was all Wayne Rooney's fault.
I wait for the half final ...
Well there it is.Trying to look like Ingrid,'We still have Wimbledon.'
Well we've won the series, with yesterday's victory by one wicket.
I can think of a few ball games Nick... and thankfully they don't include pins...Anyhow... stop being smug, Mr Mags... Thank you for the chocs, Mr XL...Pat, I didn't have you down as a fantasist.......and which series are we talking about, Dave? Are you referring to some obscure sit-com on radio 4?Sx
My favourite World Cup text joke: The Met Office have issued a flood warning for Scotland. Apparently 6 million scots pissed themselves Sunday afternoon.My second favourite: what's the difference between England Football Team and a tea-bag?A tea bag stays in the cup longer/
Cricket, my flower, cricket. We've just won a one-day series agains Australia. Good thing it's our national sport, isn't it?*Saunters away, singing: In the jungle, South African jungle, Three lions sleep tonight, Cos in the morning, the early morning, They have to catch a flight, A win no way, A win no way, A win no way, A win no way....*
