Before I go to sleep,  

let me annoy you a little with soccer, because it stopped me from being productive. Well, I managed to do two banners in... one hour and an half when these things should take me less than ten minutes for both.

As I was saying to Azzie, who got part of my comments almost in real time, I do enjoy soccer once every 4 years. Because France's performance is such a wonder and a mystery that fascinate me to no end. I mean, we alternate critical miss and critical attack at each World Cup (and this year is a critical success). Our players headbutt other, our players are mutineers (and they do it in front of the whole world). It's like drama incoming on the critical miss years. And every World Cup, I'm waiting eagerly for the next episode.

Anyway, it leads us with my expectation of the team this year, which amounted to "at least, they shouldn't rebel this year". And for this Nipple World Cup (geez, this uniform are so tight and with all the heat, humidity and sweat, it a bit like Superman's combination) match—against Switzerland by the way—I wasn't expecting much.

Then, things got interesting and entertaining, and it was actually pretty fun.

17' France scores one goal. I lift my head from GIMP to watch the replay, then lower it. Screams.
18' France scores another goal.

YES, THIS IS TRUE. I don't even. That when the tempest of lulz happened on FB, because we all have lots of hope and faith in the team. That's basically the general reaction:

WHY? OMG WHAT HAPPENED? WHEN DID WE... UGH... OMG... WHAAAAAAAAAAT?! NO WAY! GUYS, DON'T LET YOURSELF HOPE FOR SOMETHING GOOD, IT'S FRANCE XD NO BUT, REALLY, WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON WITH FRANCE? WHY ARE WE WINNING? IT'S LIKE ONLY 20 MINUTES IN AND... OMG I JUST CAN'T.

It got funnier because we ended up at 5 - 0 and at that point, we were all like: ARE THEY ON DRUGS? THEY MUST ON DRUGS! THAT'S NOT NORMAL, OMG WHAAAAAAAAAAT! GEEZ, I FEEL SO BAD FOR SWITZERLAND.

At least, they didn't end the match with the infamous 0. Final score was 5 - 2 for France (gods, I'm still baffled about that). There was a 6th but, like, just after the final whistle. Anyway, you should find reports easily if you're interested.



On these words, good night XD

edit: I really did enjoy the game, France played so good that it had a bit of a video game feeling (like fighting against an AI, not too bad but a little sloppy). And Switzerland's goals were amazing too, the end was gooood.

Yes i am annoyed with soccer. Annoyed so much that to hear that Costa Rica beat Italy , for fuck sake, dumped us out of the competition at the first hurdle.

At least, it's better than how bad was Spain's defeat :) That was really ridiculous, pretty much a France V2.

I'm personally boyotting the World Cup this year (because of the issues in Brasil, I can't watch the thing without feeling bad about it). But I'm hearing a lot about it from friends who are watching and just news reports.

I haven't seen France play since the last World Cup and they were awful, so I can't say I'm rooting for them (although from what I'm gathering they've tremendously improved).

But, even though I'm not watching, I'll always root for die Mannschaft! They've been my favorite for quite a while and never failed to disappoint me, and I saw some replays of the Germany-Portugal game which were all ridiculously satisfying to watch (Mueller, scoring 3 goals out of the 4 they made that night, SO GOOD). I hope they'll make it against Ghana and the US because they deserve it.

Well, France is always alternating between awfulness and rocking-so-much. The problem with last World Cup was that their play was brought down by the hell that was happening outside the field. And also, Domenech sucked and a sucky coach is rarely a good thing for a team.

I can't say I've got a favorite. Well, I do have a big soft spot for Brazil since 1998 and I follow France. And yeah, Germany always had a pretty good level.

WHOA OH MY FUCK SERIOUSLY. As you can see, I'm sharing the general opinion ^_^ *giggles*

Sorry this made you unproductive! I would say "relax, you can be a bit unproductive once in a while, that's okay!" but I always want to bite the people who tell me that, so yeah… guess I won't ;)

Ahah! Let's hope they continue rocking on the field and won't disappointed everyone after getting us so hopeful.

Yeah! And Mr Clever will have my head once I get back to it (that and the fact there isn't much time left to finish it).

Argh, good luck! ♥
