Today's another lazy day in preparation for the World Cup. I'm super excited. This World Cup is going to be amazing, not least because I'm 12,000 miles away from the hype surrounding the England team. It's fantastic not hearing on an hourly basis how supposedly brilliant Gerrard and Rooney and Capello are, and how this is going to be "our year". Hopefully by the time I get back England will have been humbled and people will have learned to shut up. Hopefully. Unfortunately England have been given a pretty easy run to the semi-finals, but I'm still expecting them to under-perform (especially if James is in goal; Casillas was right about the goalkeepers being England's weakness. Well, that and Heskey). I'm not-so-secretly hoping that the USA will win the group, and it looks like they've got a good chance of doing so. We shall see.

I think I'll go and get some lunch and then have a nap; 2am kick-offs are going to be so much fun /sarcasm

So through all this, who will you be cheering for?

I want either Spain or the Netherlands to win (which just so happens to be my predicted final), but I'll also be supporting New Zealand, Germany, Mexico, a few Arsenal players if not their national team, and possibly the USA, plus any other team that plays good football and doesn't offend me.

Spain is full of cunts. The national team, that is.

It would also be really helpful if I remembered to log in to Livejournal before posting comments.
