World Cup Glory!
« on: November 16, 2005, 09:31:58 AM »
here we come!

i do hope all you aussies actually living in australia were watching the game - i was chewing my nails and watching the bbc's text commentary. finally, the ghosts of 1997 have been exorcised - i might even find it within myself to forgive harry kewell.

to paraphrase bob hawke - any boss who sacks his staff for not turning up to work today is a bastard! (i just hope my boss is aware of this fact...)

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie. Oi, Oi, Oi.

Wasn't it just bloody wonderful!

PS Good luck with your Boss ;)

PPS I'm not forgiving Harry for the Hairdo though... that was unforgivable... Soo retro Beckham. *shudder*

But I have a left shoulder-blade that is a miracle of loveliness.  People come miles to see it.

I watched House instead, much to my soccer-fanatic brother's disgust. :)

The Swannies winning the AFL Grand Final was enough joy for me. Oh, and NSW winning the State of Origin. I wouldn't mind the footballroos winning the world cup though. ;)

I was watching this at work and was rooting for the Aussies all the way.  Alvaro Recoba deserved a smack in the face for his comment.

All I want now is to be drawn in the same group as Australia in the group stage.  You'd get a right spanking!!

I'm rooting for the US, of course, even though they aren't all that great a team. I'm still glowing from their Gold Cup victory in July.

Probably not this time - they've got Brazil in the group phase.

Actually, most of the groups this time are absolute death. The one with Italy, the Czech Republic, and the United States springs to mind. And I just hope they have plenty of security at the Poland vs. Germany match.
