If you know football (that’s soccer anyone American), you would have heard of the Ballon d’or. It’s basically given out by FIFA to the best footballer of any given year. Guess who was awarded it 2014? Cristiano Ronaldo. I mean seriously? He’s likely to most commercialised player of the year, I will give him that. […]
I am sure you saw it coming, a final (probably final) post on the world cup. But before we get into the finals this morning, lets me get everything I have wanted to say but didn’t manage to blog about out of the way first. Firstly while it would have been like a fairy tale […]
The Germans won. All is good with the world. Except there’s no more world cup to watch, so essentially there’s no more excitement in my life for now.
It’s been a great Sunday. Morning started with me meeting up with my bff, favourite cousin or whatever you want to call her, in a nice little cafe that served great food. This was followed by coffee at another cafe and shopping. Though the shopping was for nothing exciting, just black flats, it felt nice […]
Miroslav Klose is now the top goal scorer in World cup matches, he has beaten Ronaldo (the Brazilian one) with 16 goals in 4 tournaments. Also, I am blogging because as much as I am a German fan, I cannot watch the Brazil team get thrashed anymore. It’s sad (thinking of taking back my apology). […]
Day 1 or the first 2 matches of the quarter finals are over. Very interesting match ups for all 4 games I have to say. I was all pumped last night to watch France vs Germany and Brazil vs Colombia. It was the weekend (though I am working) I figured what the hell, lets watch […]
Was talking to a friend tonight and I told her at about 8.30pm that I was going to bed so that I can get up for the match tonight (Argentina vs Switzerland, and yes of course it is at extra time now, since I have work tomorrow). The friend told me she wished she was […]
Just further adds to the point in my previous post that the Italian football team are just nice. And that the referee in the last world cup game was unfairly harsh on them.
I need to apologise to Julio Cesar. When yesterday’s Brazil vs Chile match went into penalties, I underestimated him. Or maybe I over Claudio Bravo. I still think Bravo is amazing. And you can’t blame me, Brazilians aren’t know for their goalies. Plus he plays his club football in Canada. But he actually made some […]
Seems like the perfect way to watch the world cup. I am going to try and imagine that that’s were I am, sipping on champagne, while I catch the matches tonight. One can dream.
