Sdtrk: ‘Interesting drug’ by Morrissey

One could accurately describe me as the most casual football fan ever — I’ve only been into it for the past three or so years, and I don’t keep up with it as much as I could be. I like Manchester Utd for obvious reasons; Juventus, probably cos they were the first Italian team I’d seen; and Bayern München, cos Ollie Kahn’s goalkeeping skills impressed me, even though he’s a bit of an adulterer. O, and there’s Gatas Brilhantes H.P., but as it’s a futsal team composed of Japanese idol singers, I don’t think they really count. Nevertheless, as far as the 2006 World Cup goes, I know who I’m backing..

    And on the 15th, they go up against TriniTobagoDad. I think we already know how that one will end up, heh heh. 🙂

    I can’t believe how caught up I am in all of this! I was watching the online play-by-play of Germany v. Poland this afternoon, and I found myself yelling at the screen. Woooo Germany!

    You’d be right! But I think a good part of the reason I’m into football is because I find the culture that goes along with it to be fascinating and fun. And we all like Fun, right?
    Plus, football chants are a fucking riot.

    ‘My old man!
    Said be a City fan
    And I said “Bollocks, you’re a c*nt”
    “I’d rather shag a bucket with a big hole in it”
    “Than be a City fan for one small minute”

    With hatchets & hammers
    Stanley knives & spanners
    We’ll teach those City b*st*rds how to fight
    (how to fight)
    I’d rather shag a bucket with a big hole in it
    Than be a City fan (Altogether now…)’

    This is usually followed by a hearty repeated bellowing of ‘COME ON YOU REDS’. Poetry, in its purest form. 🙂
