Apropos of Nothing

September 20, 2006

Yep, I’ve registered my own domain which is being hostd by the very excellent Dreamhost, so why don’t you all direct your browsers to my brand new blog, now entitled Apropos of Nothing.

It’s not that I disliked Schadenfreude, but I wanted something new. Disagree? Tell me on Apropos of Nothing!


Fuck off, Brazil

Jesus, Brazil were shit. Ronaldo was a fucking disgrace, the rest mediocre. Cafu was half-decent.

It kills me that Croatia didn’t score with the massive chances they had. The were really on form tonight, man of the match Prso in particular, and could have made two easy goals had they managed what any footballer would do easily in the same situation, regardless of his skills: kick the fucking ball slightly to the side of the goalie.

I was rooting for Croatia the whole time. It pisses me off something royally when the top flight teams play as shitty as they have so far. A billion bloody people are watching, and Ronaldo doesn’t bother taking even one decent run? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a player regarded as one of the world’s best play as shitty as he did tonight, and it fucking OFFENDS ME. France, England and Portugal can sod off for the exact same reasons; playing overly cynical, deliberately restraining their offensive play and generally being lazy, both individually and as part of their respective teams’ deliberate defensive approach.

Yeah, yeah, the weather. I bet every single player has been on top of his game in the exact same heat some time in his career.

In the end, Croatia can blame themselves for not winning this, but I feel sorry that they didn’t get at least a point out of this, I truly do.

Doesn’t help my mood that the commentators, supopsedly the most respected and skilled we have around here, are about as biased towards Brazil as Brazil’s own fans.

Aw, Jesus. The only consolation is that most teams will most certainly improve further into the tournament. Apart from France, of course, who will once again exit the tournament without having scored.
