CRZ suggested we use the Football folder to discuss Football ... go figure.
Easily the biggest upset in recent history to start the World Cup. Senegal 1 - France 0. France looked disorganized and uncreative in attack without Zidane, and Senegal played like giant killers. Oooh I already can't wait till tomorrow's games.
If history is any indication, France is done already ... no team has ever won the World Cup after losing the first game. France will now have trouble even making the second round -- what a letdown for the defending champs. Now lets cheer on Nigeria and the Indomidable Lions of Cameroon -- this is Africa's year!
Past hills of chambermaids' dark bare arms and fields of muscles quilted to the bone, Right now I'm flying over, yeah right now I'm flying home.
But even I liked seeing that game. The way France was playing at the end (you could see the desperate look on their faces) was a joy to watch.
It took 15 years. In my last semester of school ever. But I finally did it. The kid who was supposed to barely finish high school has received an A minus average. This makes me want to go back home.....see all those teachers in high school, my former class mates. And eventually (if I ever see him again), my father. All those people who said I wouldn't cut it, that I'd be nothing. And that I probably wouldn't make it past high school. I want to see them all. And I will enjoy shoving all those comments down their respective throats with a hot branding iron.
I hate Senegal. I KNEW they were going to pull the upset, but I wasn't brave enough to pull the trigger and take the 8:1 odds on them to beat France straight up, chickened out, and bet on the draw instead. I watched the next morning and just wanted to scream at my own stupidity.
Oh well, now to root for the Indomitable Lions to fill the 60:1 shot and take home the Cup.
How's your new love?/I hope he's doin' fine/Heard you told him that you'd love him 'till the end of time/Now, that's the same thing/the same thing you told me seems like just the other day/Gee ain't it funny, funny how time slips away? - Willie Nelson tells the truth.
"I thought it was cool how HHH just tossed Jericho out of the ring and made him vanish, possibly into another dimension, at the end of the match." - Dr. Unlikely says the funniest thing I've ever read on Wienerville
It was actually a Monday Night game in KC. Bennie Thompson sacked Favre (he was playing in '93, right?) and to celebrate got down and all fours and lifted his leg. http://www.kansascity.com/mld/kansascity/sports/columnists/10614088.htm
