far too much writing, far too many photos

Not that you asked, but — World Cup games coming up tomorrow:

Brazil v. England (around 2:30 a.m., EDT) — two excellent, top-drawer teams. Should be a hellacious game (and one for which I cannot take sides — good luck to both).

Germany v. U.S. (around 7:30 a.m. EDT) — don’t expect the U.S. to come out on top, though given the number of upsets in this Cup, you never know. Could be a harrowing game.

And on Saturday:

Spain v. South Korea (around 2:30 a.m. EDT) — Spain has another excellent team, and the South Koreans are revved up and playing scrappy, tenacious ball. Should be a great match. I admit to being extremely partisan here, though — ┬íVenga Espa├▒a!

Senegal v. Turkey (around 7:30 a.m. EDT) — Two dark horses going at each other, teams that have surprised many by getting this far. Could be a very interesting game.


Part of a note from an Irish friend of mine currently living in Stoke-On-Trent in England, in response to my sports blather of two days ago:

“The whole country here is [waiting with] baited breath for the game tomorrow morning. The TV, radio, every shop, street corner, everywhere people are talking about it.

“It may not end up being a great game to watch as their styles are so opposing. England are able to shut down teams but then are unable to be very attack-minded themselves. Brazil also tend to get quite tense, and foul a lot, if the game doesn’t go their way.

“But the prospect is still mouth-watering. Both teams are capable of playing very attractive football, and Brazil especially can be fantastic to watch. They have scored lots of goals, and conceded a few as well, so I do not expect a 0-0 draw. It is on very early here, 7.30am, so it must be about 2.30am [EDT], but I will watch it live, at home in my bed, then go into work afterwards.

“Will you get to see it live, or will you even want to?? Anyway, I hope you enjoy it when you do see it, and that there will be less of the cynical play you mentioned earlier.”
