Games 3, 4, 5
Me and Damian in my living room
June 10, 2006
Day two of my World Cup Tour didn’t leave my couch. My options were limited and besides, it’s time Damian learns a few things about sports and fandom. He’s got some English blood in him from somewhere, so at 9AM we watched a rather lackluster performance in England’s 1-0 victory over Paraguay. Our hero David Beckham scored (sort of) and looked quite dapper doing so. Oh, Becks!
After England’s victory it was time for Sweden versus Trinidad and Tobago. Seems kind of unfair that Sweden had to play two countries, but whatever. TnT were 2000-1 underdogs and amazingly came out with a 0-0 tie. I now know how a 0-0 game can be exciting. What’s more, after the final whistle seeing the TnT team and crowd celebrating like they just won a billion dollar lottery while the Swedes cried in their meatballs was a bit of a new experience for me and Damian. Soccer is weird like that.
The last game today was Argentina versus Ivory Coast. Argentina is comprised of a bunch of wimps who fake injuries all over the field and the ref was totally in their court. It made me angry to watch this game. Damian too, as he was all about Ivory Coast as you see below.
