Sdtrk: ‘The Witch’ by Coachwhips

Well played, France, but it appears that Italy is the Final Victor.

I was kinda torn there, as I like France as a country, but I fell in love with Juventus when I was first getting into footie a few years ago. Plus, Buffon is a pretty impressive keeper; at least when I’d seen him. Shame about Zidane being sent off, though. For a while, I actually thought France would take the Cup.. Nevertheless, an intense game!

FYI: the illos of the footie lasses (with the exception of the England one in the first post) were drawn by Kagami of Utility-pole spirit, and the CG Japanese lass in this post was done by M-RS of incise soul.

England in 2010, damnit!

    I HATE organized sport almost as much as I despise popular country music.

    I’d agree; most sports are rubbish, but not all of them — I’d still like to see a cricket match and a game of curling, for instance. Clever people either already know or can infer that I’m not at all a typical sports fan, but I pretty much got into footie due to my fascination with the culture that surrounds it. (Especially when you start your ‘research’ into the culture by reading Bill Buford’s ‘Among the thugs‘.) There are much worse ways of wasting time. Like golf, for instance.

    Now country music? Apart from Johnny Cash, there’s something that has no redeeming value whatsoever.
